In Houston Texas, where the mayor is a lesbian, the local Democrat leadership is seeking to make the sermons of local church leaders subject to Government oversight, and, as usual, it’s because LGBT feelings got hurt.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys have filed a motion in a Texas court to stop an attempt by the city of Houston to subpoena sermons and other communications belonging to several area pastors in a lawsuit in which the pastors are not even involved.
City officials are upset over a voter lawsuit filed after the city council rejected valid petitions to repeal a law that allows members of the opposite sex into each other’s restrooms.

The Culture War is over; we now live in the era of the Cultural Occupation. The social left… with its agenda of abortion, pornography, and the destruction of traditional moral and social values… occupies the Government, Academia, and Media.
