Alert: Christians Banned from Christmas Parade in the City of Taylor
The war on Christmas has started. Tomorrow, the city council of Taylor, Texas will meet to take action on a 300-page agenda. Buried in this massive document is Agenda Item 13 (pgs. 266-270), a new policy that disqualifies and essentially bans Christians from being a part of city-sponsored events including Christmas parades. Also, if a church or Christian nonprofit wants to participate in a special city event they will be forced by the government to adopt a dangerous and controversial LGBT sexual orientation and gender identity policy that is not even recognized in state law.
The language of the egregious policy says “Examples of requests that are typically deemed ineligible include…individuals, organizations…who….represent religions…” The city council plans to vote on this tomorrow.
