City of Houston demands pastors turn over sermons | Fox News


The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

“The city’s subpoena of sermons and other pastoral communications is both needless and unprecedented,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christina Holcomb said in a statement. “The city council and its attorneys are engaging in an inquisition designed to stifle any critique of its actions.”

  1. Not sure I understand this. Most churches now days have their sermons free for download from their website. If not, then anyone can go to the church and hear them live. Are they seeking to ban the future preaching of those sermons? I don’t see this ending well for the City government.

    1. You’ve just hit on the chief reason for the subpoenas. They’re an effort to chill free speech and prevent churches from commenting in the public square. This is nothing different from fascism and communism.

  2. Everytime I think Texas is doing everything right (in comparison to us, California) I read about something really stupid – first the DA from Austin and Rick Perry and now this.

  3. They could always tell the city council and city attorneys that they are welcome to attend services to hear the sermons.

    1. OR, just tell the DA: “My dog ate my sermons. But not to worry, I forwarded COMPLETE COPIES of all my past sermons to Ms. Lois Lerner. Please contact her, and get the fcuk off my front porch.”

  4. Remember when they were demanding pastors turn over their anti-Bush sermons? Me neither.

  5. Glenn Reynolds writes that the city councilors wouldn’t do that if they were afraid of being beheaded. Let’s behead them and see if that works.


  6. Well now. Aren’t they precious. That’s a special type of stupid right there. Lefties,progs, and deviants. Wow!

  7. I weep for my birthplace. Can’t believe this is happening in Houston. I haven’t lived there since 1981, but I didn’t think it had changed THAT much.
