Last year Texas state senator Donna Campbell (R) introduced a measure that would allow business owners and services to refuse service to the LGBTQ customers if doing so would violate their religious beliefs.
The Republican senator has full support from the anti-gay group 'Family Values' and now a new political religious group by the name of 'Plano Citizens United' as the group is based on 3 pastors I can see in video I watched.
The pastors identified are Pastor Charles Flowers from the Faith Outreach INTL (pictured), which is in San Antonio TX, Pastor David Welch from the Houston Area Pastor Council, Pastor Jeremy Flanagan from the Pathway Baptist Church and Mark Gonzales from the National Black Robe Regiment.
The Plano Citizens United political religious group was set up on the 2nd January to voice for their religious freedom and oppose anything against their fundamentalist religious views especially when it comes down to discrimination against the LGBTQ community.
The pastors mentioned are basically saying that especially Pastor Charles Flowers who actually denounces the comparison between LGBT Rights to Civil Rights era. Their main cause for this petition is
to Repeal the Amendment to 2-11 allowing males who perceive themselves to be female (and vice versa) to go into women's' restrooms & locker rooms in businesses with more than 15 employees.
WOGPNEWS: Recently in an interview with Billboard, Dolly Parton made the risky decision to point the finger at Christians for judging the LGBT community.
“They know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people,” Parton said of her gay fans. “I’ve struggled in my life to be appreciated and understood. I’ve had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love. I don’t think we should be judgmental. Lord, I’ve got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else.”
But Parton didn’t stop there—she went on to criticize Christians directly.
“But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they’re already sinning,” Parton concluded. “The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else in committing. I try to love everybody.”
What do you think of Parton’s comments?
