Houston we have a (religious freedom) problem
They said it couldn’t happen. But it did. The lesbian mayor of the city of Houston, Texas in the US subpoenaed sermons and other private communications from city Pastors to monitor its contents.
Apparently, Mayor Annise Parker, who recently passed the “Bathroom Bill” allowing men to use women’s toilets and lockers rooms – is on a witch-hunt to stifle any criticism of homosexuality.
Alarmingly, the largest charismatic Church in America is located in Houston – which appears to have very little influence in the city. Only 16 percent of citizens turned out to vote in the mayors race.
Now the city with the “largest Christian Church in America” is controlled by a lesbian activists mayor – who is making good use of her position to bully the Christian Church to submit to her radical agenda.
I write this update from Salt Lake City, Utah in the US where Arlene and I are attending the World Congress of Families – Strategic Planning Meeting. Faith, family & freedom are all under attack!
Emboldened by a pro-abortion, pro-sexual rights White House, homosexual totalitarianism is extending its ominous reach across the US and Europe and the Christian Church is squarely in its sights.
Religious freedom is under grave threat in the US, Europe and South Africa. The only freedom of speech homosexual activists tolerate – are their own. Sexual rights activists are hard at work at the UN and in liberal Parliaments, shutting down any debate that conflicts with their agenda.
South African Churches will soon be feeling the sting of homosexual totalitarianism when “Hate Crimes” legislation is tabled in Parliament soon. Scriptures condemning homosexual practise will be criminalised and Pastors prosecuted for preaching God’s Word from their own pulpits.
Like Christians in Houston, South African’s have not voted their values or even considered the real implications of their vote. Christian apathy in SA, like Houston – will cost the Church dearly.
Sexual rights activists will not stop their Soviet-era tactics until the Christian Church is silenced and firmly under their control. Tolerance, equality and freedom are demanded but never reciprocated.
In the US, Churches have been harassed, Christian businesses shut down, others have been driven out of their jobs. US Christians have voted a “gay activist” into power and are now paying the price for it.
Unless the Church in SA wakes up to the reality their religious freedoms are being eroded under the guise of “equality,” Houston’s problem will become SA’s problem and it will only have itself to blame.
