Public Hearing on Julian Castro's Persecution Ordinance


A public hearing on Julian Castro's Christian Persecution ordinance next Wednesday; via Texas Values:
The San Antonio City Council, Mayor Castro, and LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender) activists are now getting desperate in their effort to pass their so called “non-discrimination” ordinance – an ordinance that is better described as a direct attack on Christians and people of faith in San Antonio. With over 20,000 messages to the San Antonio City Council being sent by concerned Texans and local opposition in San Antonio among Churches and local citizens continuing to build, the more the ordinance and its true intentions are exposed, the more citizens are willing to stand up for their rights.
The San Antonio City Council has already been forced to recognize the blatant religious discrimination of this proposed ordinance and has attempted to change the ordinance and introduce new drafts to push back and mislead the growing opposition to the ordinance. But simply removing one discriminatory and unconstitutional section (Section 2-552(b) from previous draft) does not change the fact that there are still serious religious freedom, constitutional, and practical problems with the ordinance. In fact, the new draft still includes a section (2-252(b) in new draft) that attacks board members, appointed officials, and others that oppose (“demonstrated bias, by word or deed…”) homosexual conduct by requiring that action be taken to “remove the offending person from office.”

The San Antonio City Council, Mayor Castro, and LGBT activists are now getting desperate in their effort to pass their so called “non-discrimination” ordinance – an ordinance that is better described as a direct attack on Christians and people of faith in San Antonio. With over 22,000 messages to the San Antonio City Council being sent by concerned Texans and local opposition in San Antonio among Churches and local citizens continuing to build, the more the ordinance and its true intentions are exposed, the more citizens are willing to stand up for their rights.

The City Council has already been forced to recognize the blatant religious discrimination of this proposed ordinance and has attempted to change the ordinance and introduce new drafts to push back and mislead the growing opposition. But simply removing one discriminatory and unconstitutional section does not change the fact that there are still serious religious freedom, constitutional, and practical problems with the ordinance. Read our analysis of the 5 major problems of the ordinance.

Be Heard: The City Council is expected to take up the proposed ordinance for the first time next Wednesday, August 28. If you are in the San Antonio area, please make plans to be at City Hall. The City Council meeting starts at 2 pm, followed by your opportunity to have your voice heard at the Citizens to be Heard Session at 6 pm (you can sign up early for the Citizens to be Heard Session online on the 28th here). We encourage you to attend both meetings. [Emphasis Ours]
With the smear campaign against Councilwoman Chan in full force, Cahnman's Musings suspects the mob will show up; sane people should as well.

  1. I've started an informative blog, sanantoniogaylies.blogspot.com/ where I lay out the true harmful implications of this ordinance.

    Did you know that, on the Dallas, Houston and Austin gay activist facebook pages, they're urging gays in those cities to travel to San Antonio on Wednesdays for the purpose of packing city council chambers to show how much support there is for the nondiscrimination ordinance? This kind of shock-and-awe tactic is very common for gay activists.
