Houston’s Annise Parker, America’s first openly lesbian mayor, is conducting a legal witch-hunt against religious leaders and pastors.
She recently shocked millions of Christians when she issued subpoenas which demand sermons of pastors who may have spoken on the topic of homosexuality, gender identity, or Parker herself. Her legal document said Pastors who do not comply may be held in contempt of court.
Pastors have revolted, and refused to comply, putting Parker and her legal team on the defensive.
Now one hunter from Louisiana is lending his name and clout to the cause.
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of ‘Duck Dynasty’ has teamed up with allies like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and the Family Research Council, to respond forcefully.
Robertson asked pastors and supporters to flood the mayor’s office with BIBLES. And boy did they respond…
Houston Mayor Annise Parker has received a flood of Bibles — somewhere between 500 and 1,000 according to a spokesman for the mayor’s office — after the city subpoenaed the church sermons of five local faith leaders opposed to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, which the mayor signed in May.
And now Robertson is going to headline a huge rally with thousands of pastors from across America to stand up for religious freedom and against anti-religious bigotry from the LGBT crowd:
On November 2nd (just before the 2014 elections!), there will be a religious rally at the Grace Community Church. Hosted by the Family Research Council and other traditional conservative groups, they just announced that Phil Robertson will be headlining the rally.
Join Christians across America for I Stand Sunday on November 2, 2014. Hosted by Family Research Council and other partners, speakers from across the nation will gather at Grace Community Church in Houston, Texas to focus on the freedom to live out our faith free of government intrusion or monitoring. We will stand with pastors and churches in Houston, Texas who have been unduly intimidated by the city’s Mayor in demanding they hand over private church communication
By lending his name and influence to this event, Phil is taking a bold stance for faith in the public arena. The liberal media already cannot stand Phil’s traditional worldview, so they will not be able to contain their anger as Phil is working so hard to influence people so close to a major midterm election.
