No, it would never be that, SFIC - even when I'm angry with him.  :ROFL:

#391800 Nonhuman "rights" Soon To Be A Reality, I Betcha

Posted by HappyChristian on Today, 09:30 AM

No, I'm sure they won't advocate lions and tigers having rights yet, simply on the basis that they believe chimps are our relatives. 


I agree that they should be put back into the wild if possible, but I don't have a problem with zoos if the animals are treated right. They are supposed to be under our dominion and zoos can give us lots of information about them. 


Totally agree no freedom to walk the streets!  Next will be the "right" to marry them...of course, there have been people around the world who've "married" an animal for one reason or another. 


Sin is sick. Unchecked sin is revolting.

Somehow I have the feeling that Christians aren't going to get the same treatment at others in jail...

This is the same as the point you made earlier, Happy Christian, and I want to ask, where is this woman saying this in that tweet? I read that quote and interpreted it as meaning that if the pastors' sermons are relevant to a court case then they are not immune to being investigated for that purpose. Where did she mention the court case in her tweet? She was defiantly stating that she has the right to demand their sermons if she deems what they say to be political speech.  You might argue that I don't know her state of mind when she said it, but, really - her wording is pretty obviously thumbing her nose...


But this journalist is basically saying that the mayor is stating publicly that she's issued the subpoenas because she is trying to prosecute the pastors for bringing politics into their sermons. But that's a ridiculous interpretation because the stated reason for the subpoenas is a lawsuit over the petition. Whatever secret motives we might--perhaps rightly--ascribe to the council's actions, those aren't going to be stated ones are they?

The amended subpoenas are now calling the sermons speeches...and are demanding all sermons related to HERO (the bathroom bill) and 17 other categories of information


From Todd Starnes:


According to the Houston Chronicle, Mayor Parker said on Friday, "We don't need to intrude on matters of faith to have equal rights in Houston, and it was never the intention of the city of Houston to intrude on any matters of faith or to get between a pastor and their parishioners."

Folks, that's a load of grade A fertilizer. 

"We don't want their sermons, we want the instructions on the petition process. That's always what we wanted and, again, they knew that's what we wanted because that's the subject of the lawsuit," she said.

There's just one problem, Madam Mayor, the pastors aren't party to the lawsuit. And if you weren't looking for their sermons, why did you put that in the subpoena. 

The pastors aren't party to the lawsuit. The subpoenas are an overreach. The relevance is that government servants do not have the constitutional (read: legal) authority to demand sermons just because they might mention something political.


Subpoenas are a way to bring evidence to a trial.  But here we get to the sticky widget again. The pastors aren't party to the lawsuit. Neither are their sermons. Whether they mention the mayor or not in a sermon, a text, an email, has nothing to do with the bathroom bill.

Yes, we should pray for them.  But you are wrong that politics shouldn't be our business. God gave us the rights that are guaranteed - and that are being trampled.  To sit back and do nothing (as in the case of this bathroom bill...which would allow pedophiles who want to claim to be transgendered access to children to whom they are sexually attracted) is to fail in our stewardship of this country God gave us. I realize, Invicta, you are not in America and your politics is a bit different. But once upon a time even Englishmen would have stepped up and protested this.


God does protect. But bad things happen to good people. And when good people sit back and allow heinous rulings and bills to stand, God is not honored.

With their reactions, backpedaling, changing of terms, etc., I don't think it's lazy secretaries or incompetence...I believe it is a direct frontal assault on religious liberty - intentionally so - by someone who hates Christianity.  


The sermons (speeches) that are being subpeonad are those that mention the mayor, homosexuality or gender identity.  It's an egregious overreach, no matter their explanation.

#391583 Sermon Supoenaes

The 5 were singled out because of petitions that apparently were circulated against the "bathroom" bill (what the churches call it) - the bill that would make public restrooms open to any gender...even though there are laws on the books in TX that would keep certain people away from restrooms of opposite gender because of being pedophiles.


Before she started backpedaling, she tweeted that the 5 pastors got into politics, so they aren't protected...She obviously has no knowledge of American history.  


For starters, homosexuality/gender nonsense isn't political at its root, it is spiritual (as is abortion, adultery, etc., etc.).  And as such, any "issue" that is out there in public that relates to that is open to be preached about in the pulpit.


Secondly, the founding people of this country did not in any way believe that Christians and/or pastors were to keep their noses out of politics. The erroneous idea of separation of church and state being that no Christians have say in government and no government offices can in any way acknowledge God or Jesus Christ has contributed to government servants becoming lords and masters as Christians bow the knee to them believing they are obeying God...

The TX attorney general doesn't like what the mayor did...irony is, she declared October anti-bullying month.

Romans 1 brings them into veracity for the Christian (for those who think they only apply to the Jews).

Sure she is. And the Constitution. And the TX constitution.  But that doesn't matter to her. 


In her backpedaling, she is trying to make it seem that there is only a little that they want...but get the proverbial nose in the tent...

Yeah, surprisingly enough. Even though mulsims are anti-gay to the point of murdering them.


The mayor is backing off now.  I think they were surprised at the uproar.

You cannot rightly divide when you parse and pick what you want to apply to your life.  ALL scripture means all of it. Not just the ones you want. Don't like it? Cut Peter, James, Hebrews out of your Bible.  


The gospel is the gospel. Only one way of salvation. Jesus.  Twist scripture to say otherwise and call it rightly dividing - it's still twisting.
