The coalition that came together to oppose Mayor Annise Parker’s “Equal Rights Ordinance” is comprised of pastors from every corner of the city and our church members, men and women from every walk of life, businessmen with prominent roles in city affairs, concerned mothers, wives and grandmothers, politically active citizens on both sides of partisan aisle, and the list continues to grow.
Pastors from some of the largest and most respected organizations in greater Houston representing hundreds of churches of every ethnic identity and most denominational backgrounds have led the effort, including:
Baptist Ministers Association of Houston
- Houston Area Pastor Council
- Houston Ministers Against Crime
- AME Ministers Alliance of Houston/Gulf Coast
- Northeast Ministers Alliance
- South Texas Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship
- South Texas District Council of the Assemblies of God
- National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference
Our basic premise is “Equal Rights for all, not Unequal Rights for a few.” The fact that the mayor and eleven city council members would place the freedom and safety of all at risk to serve a personal agenda of Annise Parker and her national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender allies is a tragic reminder of the consequences of voter apathy during elections. The short term objective was first to work to defeat the ordinance before City Council, then to file, qualify and pass a referendum overturning it by vote of the people if needed.
The long term goal is to restore a sense of duty among God-fearing citizens who hold to traditional Judeo-Christian beliefs about morality, family, marriage and personal freedom, that our government depends on every one of us voting in every election for likeminded candidates – and even becoming one of those candidates. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Governments, like clocks, go by the motion men give them.” Our clock is broken but we have the tools and the know-how to repair it.
Gracias por visitar nuestra pagina, nounequalrights.com y unirse a este esfuerzo y clamor de la gente de la ciudad de Houston para remover esta nueva ordenanza convertida en ley por la alcaldesa Annise Parker y unos consejales que no oyeron la voz de la mayoría. En nuestra ciudad hay diversidad de gente y el mismo abogado de la ciudad admitió que no tenemos problemas de descriminación. Nosotros como cristianos amamos a todo ser humano, y creemos en el respeto y los derechos dados por Dios para cada uno…
