Stand with Houston Pastors

In an unprecedented attack on religious freedom, Houston Mayor Annise Parker and the Houston City Attorney have demanded, in a subpoena, that pastors in Houston turn over their “sermons”, “speeches” and other “communications” regarding “homosexuality, or gender identity.” The pastors have been targeted for speaking out against Mayor Parker's anti-religious LGBT special rights ordinance that passed earlier this year.
