Pastors charged after telling 'gays' about sin...Now facing bench trial in court run by lesbian
WND ^ | 12/1/2011 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 12/02/2011 7:40:50 PM PST by Just4Him

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.

I’m thinking that a judge, prosecutor and some police officers should be facing jail time for obstruction of justice, or some other crime.

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.

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.

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.

—Glorify destructive sexual acting out

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.

Just heard on the news this evening that the charges were dropped. I wouldn’t be surprised if HPD ends up being sued over this.

It’s been a long time since the First Amendment meant anything at all except what the legions of the politically correct intend it to mean, which is, in a nutshell, “Freedom for me, but not for thee.”

Same as always, bitch about it on the internet and do nothing else...

And then we praise our worthless ‘leaders’ who ignore these chances to fight for our causes. Palin, Cain, Gingrich etc... Pick your favourite and he will avoid any opportunity to take to the offensive just like all the worthless rest.

Contrast this with what the leftists would do if this were one of their favoured groups being arrested... No wonder we fail so hard everywhere.

That’s the problem with conservatives who are highly individualistic and believe in human dignity. We won’t band together and rush the field for a big ole bench emptying brawl. We are in need of one badly. All the politicians at this point are equally worthless.

I don’t think their method is the best or most effective at gaining converts to Christianity. It is, however, effective at generating controversy and media attention.
