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."
Allen told WND that no matter what happens, the fact that the ministers were handcuffed and ticketed, with their signs and shofar confiscated for a time, sent a chilling message about free speech regarding religion and homosexuality.
Technically, they were ticketed for having signs thicker than one-quarter inch (they say they were 3/16ths and that they'd been approved beforehand), and for having a sign not made out of wood (their shofar is a ram's horn style).
Officers responded after someone apparently complained about the messengers and their message, but a video reveals that the first officer on the scene told them they weren't doing anything wrong.
It was a few minutes later, however, when officers approached the preachers, apparently grabbed a video camera, wrestled them to the ground and put them in handcuffs.

She should recuse herself or be forced to do so by the defense.
Judicial Appeal in the making
I’m thinking that a judge, prosecutor and some police officers should be facing jail time for obstruction of justice, or some other crime.
What’s the penalty?
What’s next for Christians...a return to lions and the Colosseum?
Pick the grievance group (black, gay, left-handed, etc.), once they get control of an organization they tend to stack it with clones of themselves.
This is what happens when people in positions of power forget about the First Amendment& the freedom of religion.
Should be the subject of the first question in the next debate.
Why worry? Just STFU and pay your taxes.
And oh, hey, yeah..., VOTE...
Sounds like it could end up becoming a juicy test case in front of the Supreme Court.
I do hate things being decided by courts, though.
Wonder how gays would fare under Shariah?
Gays are utter fools for supporting the Left. Collectivism has a perfect historical track record of killing gays once their useful idiot status is no longer needed.
And pragmatics aside, where is the morality or integrity in supporting a political platform that has murdered millions of people like you?
Bah. Morons supporting morons supporting morons.
It’s rant time baby.
The whole fascist system of forcing homosexual morality on us is based on some vague thing they call ‘tolerance’ which is about as much of a lack of real world legal basis as you can get. It flat borders on the religious and to me crashes right through the separation of church and state that the Left loves so much.
I see this as little different than the very thing the Left says that hate the European colonial empires for - walking into an existing nation and completely wiping away their culture and belief system based on enlightenment and moral superiority. They have nothing to back up tolerance for their crap other than brute force.
Their reasons and ‘arguments’ are the same ones that pedophiles and polygamists are saying we should legitimize their behavior too. Basically attempting to make their moral philosophy the highest law in the land with a circular BS legal house of cards of zero substance. What it really is, is a crusade - a big perverted religious cult fanatic crusade at that, using the power of the State to enforce it.
The Marxist/globalist agenda marches on . . .
—Destroy the family
—Destroy Judeo/Christian values
—Destroy the Constitution
—Glorify destructive sexual acting out
—Corrupt the Judicial system
—Terrorize honorable examples of Judeo/Christian values
—Punish honorable Constitutional Judeo/Christian behaviors
Why are these performance artists being silenced? Sure their art transgresses the normative PC cultural understanding, but it’s just designed to raise questions and spark a conversation about subjects that normally go unquestioned in today’s media conditioned society.
