Lesbian Elected Mayor of Houston, Texas

Houston, Texas has become the largest city in the United States to elect an openly gay mayor after City Controller Annise Parker was declared the winner of a runoff election tonight. Social conservatives fought her election, funding a campaign aimed at turning out likeminded voters to support her opponent, former city attorney Gene Locke. But Parker's endorsements from labor, police, women's, gay rights and other groups were echoed by the Houston Chronicle, the area's major daily newspaper, and her campaign ran a superior get-out-the-vote effort.

Many confuse a Philadelphia church with a Laodicean church. We are living in the lukewarm Laodicean era where Christ's return is imminent. Many who view Mr. Osteen from a distance and/or don't read his books confuse his ministry with the lukewarm Christ-less, faithless, cross-less, bloodless message of the apostate church. (I wasn't sure about him either until God helped me to take a closer look.) His ministry is biblically based, founded on scriptural doctrine, anointed, and infused with faith, hope and love.

The pharisees of Jesus' day hated him because he didn't condemn people the way they did or follow their religious dictates. They also envied him because so many followed him. Crowds or the lack thereof neither qualifies nor disqualifies a ministry. "By their fruits (not leaves) you shall know them." Inspect Osteen's fruit and see what you come with. Pharisees are notorious leaf inspectors. No different with the pharisees of today. Our notion of holiness isn't necessity God's holiness. Jesus is the revelation of the Father and his holiness.

Not if she listens to Joel Osteen.

Maybe not. Maybe God has someone else in mind to help her come to the Lord. He just happens to be in her vicinity and many receive the Lord through his ministry. Nevertheless,I have no doubt they'll be praying for her (and Houston).

If she went, she'd experience an anointing of worship, faith, hope, love, and the Good News of the Gospel of peace, God's Word. One thing she won't get is condemnation for who she is. Jesus notoriously looks past the sin (his blood allows him to do this) and see the need. Typically, homosexuality is the result of early-age rejection in some devastating form or other. God, by his power, grace and love, can reach these people. I pray He'll reach her.

Oh yeah....If this were San Fransisco this would be evil and satanic! But since it's Texas, it's just A-OK. ...

We don't care if she's some kinky twisted homo deviate... She's our leader!

Steers and Queers!

Houston is predominantly Democratic. Close to 25% black and 1/3 are Hispanic. Over 60,000 of its residents identify themselves as gay or lesbian.

What the hell happened to Texas? This tells me how really effed this country is.

if homos want to be married and have that then why are they not all flocking to MA and other crap holes up north.

This is TX and the GOP had better wake up and realise that pandering to queers is not working.

Either talk about their homo ways and their agenda or just go and join the left in their perverted agenda.

shutting up is what they want, show some photo’s and videos of how they act, what their agenda is and folks will wake up.

Also she got the black vote but I bet they have no clue about her.

Houston got it BAD this election year. The whole mayoral race was a tragedy. And now this! I’ve been having a year long headache.

Well you see, in this country we live by our Constitution and like it or not some of your fellow Houstonians may be black or Hispanic. And now, they even let them vote.

And your 60,000 residents that identify themselves as gay or lesbian only represent 2.5% of the population.

Exactly.

However, I find it quite amusing that Houston elected the the slightly more Conservative candidate as mayor and people here are having a fit due to Parker's sexuality.

Don’t expect much out of Joel Osteen - he is too busy with the “Name-It, Claim-It” Prosperity gospel to worry about something as “insignificant” as sin... I have NEVER heard him “preach” (if you can call rambling on about feel-good promises of wealth, health, and good times if you just “believe”, often without any scripture at all, preaching...) about the danger of sin. The condemning reality of sin. The horrible price of sin.

But if you smile big enough, and REALLY believe that God will bless you - then you will be blessed....

Ain’t that good enough?

Now I have to go puke...

Now if only you are an illegal mexican lesbian you can own the city!

That was almost a coffee spew and I did not realize who posted that until I previewed my original post - had to start over.

I live outside the city limits so I didn’t have a vote in the Mayoral election, but I can honestly say I never once saw anything that mentioned her being gay. Maybe inside the city limits it was an issue, but I laughed when the media suddenly said “the first openly gay Mayor” - openly? I did hear that about a week before this runoff the black guy running “leaked” that she was gay..... but after the fact the media wants it to appear she was flaunting her sexuality. lol

I have to agree with you about Osteen. At first his message seems full of hope - but after awhile you realize it is the same sermon, over and over again. Smile, be happy, God will bless you if you are happy - He tells you the end result but not how to get there. It’s sort of like the liberal crap spewed at school children: you can achieve anything (but they don’t give them the tools to get there)
