    They want to recall the mayor also...so what. She's trying to turn Houston into Gomorrah.

    They are not likely to get her recalled over this. I have no idea why they want to recall her, given the group, likely just because she is openly gay, but I doubt it really has to do with her job performance, and a lot more to do with them disagreeing with her politics.

    As she disagrees with theirs.

    This is the latest.

    The only issue I have is them having to turn over sermons that they did not give, whether they were related to this issue or any other issue. That is not right because it would not have legitimately influenced any signatures if no one heard it.

    It's all part of a broader anti-gay discrimination initiative.
    Why do have to resort to lies?

    In post #763 you claimed that "The mayor of Houston (who is Gay) just tried to pass a law that would restrict what ministers and priests could say from the pulpit regarding homosexuality. So don't tell me laws aren't created specifically for Gays."

    Obviously that is not true and now to mask that you are posting a diversion.

    My point is as valid as it gets.
    Yes and two hundred years ago no one expected slaves to be freed or interracial marriage, or women voting or children protected. How far back would you like to turn the clock to support bigotry?

    That being said, I highly doubt the law just covered what was being said against gays. I'm willing to bet it was much more general than that.

    Do you happen to have a link to the actual law that he was trying to pass (and not some right-wing or Christian blog/website that likely doesn't give all relevant information)? I would like to see the actual full text of the attempted legislation.
    There is no attempted legislation. The post was a lie made up to support a failed point.

    50 years ago (1964) there were many people that didn't expect that coloreds could marry respectable white folk either would be normalized or leagal in all 50 states. Hell Alabama was one of the ones that passed a State Constitutional Amendment to make sure that didn't happen. The Loving decision was in 1967, that changed.



    >>>>
    I don't recognize the comparison. Use some other example that actually makes sense.

    The fact that you choose not to recognize the comparison isn't surprising. 50-years ago the majority of people didn't want to see interracial couples married. They were in for a big surprise by 1967 and were probably just as pissed as you are.

    but but race is not the same thing as gender so therefore its impossible to discriminate against people in the same way over both things

    I mean a racist might insult you based on your race they cant do that based on your sexuality



    a racist might send your people to concentration camps

    that doesn't happen over your sexuality


    Holocaust victims - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    racists might not let you marry the person of your choice over race and then claim bull **** like your free to marry some one of the same race just like they are

    you cant limit who people marry by what sex they are and then say your free to marry some one of the opposite gender just like every one else

    or even if you could its not at all the same because.................................sex and sexuality are not race ya that's the ticket

    so any comparison between restricting marriage based on race to doing so based on sex well
