Editor's note - I apologize for not sending out this morning's post, Opponents of Houston's non-discrimination ordinance relying on an ugly lie to gain victory, to all the folks I usually send posts out to. Please take a look at it because it is very apropo to the story at the top of today's news briefs
What you are seeing here is the main reason why Christianity is getting a bad reputation and so many folks are abandoning it. Also, why so few trust politicians. It's sad when any elected official, much less a governor, caters to and spreads lies about a piece of legislation.@GregAbbott_TX @HillaryClinton how can u bear false witness like that and call yourself a Christian, Gov. Abbot?— Holy Bullies (@holybullies) November 2, 2015
GOP Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Urges “NO” Vote On Houston LGBT Rights: “No Men In Women’s Bathrooms” - Joe Jervis has more about this lie. Mark my words, if the pro-lgbt ordinance in Houston (HERO) loses because of this consistently refuted lie about "men in women's bathrooms," expect things to get "real." It's going to be the aftermath of the Prop 8 vote all over again (although I HOPE lgbts spend less time figuratively shooting at each other and instead, pushing for education and conversations about anti-lgbt propaganda. In the 70s, Anita Bryant derailed a pro-gay ordinance using the same fear tactic. The fact that it may still be successful over 30 years later is a damn shame.)
If You Think You Understand Houston’s ‘Bathroom Ordinance,’ You Probably Don’t - HERO has NOTHING to do with "men in the women's restrooms." THIS is what it has to do with.
