"A church should not be required to have the government sign off on their pastor's sermons.
Yet, that's just what's happening in Houston, Texas. Mayor Annise Parker has issued an unprecedented legal demand that several key pastors turn over sermons, emails, and text messages, even communications with members of their congregations, under the threat of fines imprisonment or both. The pastors that have been targeted are pastors who have spoken out against Parker's LGBT special rights ordinance.
Mayor Parker has breached the wall of separation between the state and the church. This attack on religious freedom and the freedom of speech should be universally repudiated by all Americans who value our constitutional freedoms."
Sign the FRC's petition in support of these Houston pastors.
