Two veteran street preachers in Houston are facing a bench trial for spreading the biblical message about homosexuality and other sins on one of their favorite corners for preaching in Houston.
That the message was direct is obvious, from a photo of the situation that developed for David Stokes of BulldogMinistries.com and Dave Allen of HornofSamuelBook.com:
Their sign warns those who are "Drunks, homosexuals, abortionist, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, witches, idolators" that "Hell awaits you."
Their hearing will be in Houston Municipal Court, which is run by Barbara E. Hartle, who, according to the Dallas Voice, is listed by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund as "one of only a few out members of the Texas judiciary."
She was appointed to the position by Houston Mayor Annise Parker, identified by the Los Angeles Times as "the first lesbian to head a major American city."

Will the fornicators also sue?
If the Judge follows the US Constitution, her personal choices should not matter. We shall see.
WTF? So the OWS protestors doing drugs, raping women, shietting on cop cars is considered “freedom of speech” but a Pastor preaching is not? Is Nancy Pelosi running that town now?
But occupy is allowed to stay...
I guess the President could press his case against the ministers after looking at the list.
...coming to a church near you. Homosexuality will bring in the persecution of the church.
As has been stated many times on this forum:
So-called “gay rights” is a direct assault on the First Amendment. That these preachers are even being taken to a kangaroo court should send a chill down the spine of all Americans who care about the Constitution.
in your life you’ve found that libs follow the law before ideology?
obviously, this will be a religion versus progressive and the progressive will push the attack and punish the preachers.
i’m still trying to understand how this isn’t freedom of speech
Homosexuality is just partner assisted masturbation. Homosexuals are the most self-centered, self-serving and self-aggrandizing group the world has ever seen.
I thought this story was going to be about some jurisdiction in England.
All I can say is: WOW!
And I am sure we can all count on WND to accurately state what the arrest was for!
If these guys get a jury, not a chance they will be convicted, and the stupid cops have alienated more of the support they will eventually desperately need.
Good to see the the police are equal opportunity oppressors as they are equally brutal on these protestors in Houston as well as OWS and Pro Life protestors.
Witches? What if you are a good witch?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;...
or abridging the freedom of speech..., or of the press;
or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Homosexuality is an acute form of malignant narcisism.
What a crock.
We’ll see what the outcome is tho it will be argued that it was not the content of their speech but the thickness of their signs...
yeah right...I’d be back there the next day...
Looks like private property, not public property?
Maybe a mirror would be the appropriate response?
A Houston TV news site stated the bench trial was supposed to be on Nov. 17. Was WND being sensationalist again? What was the results of the trial?
