Description

A Rasmussen Reports survey found that voters overwhelmingly support religious leaders’ battle against Houston’s mayor over freedom of religion. Annise Parker, Houston’s openly gay mayor, recently subpoenaed five local pastors and demanded that they produce all private communications, sermons, and speeches to be examined in light of a city ordinance in favor of gay rights. Parker has since backed off the subpoena request, exempting sermons, but still requiring all other forms of communication. The ordinance in question, which allows opposite-sex bathroom use, was challenged by these same five pastors.
