    While Muslim faithful are worshiping Allah, sounds of liquored up Texans chasing greased pigs may soon be heard outside the mosque. "Comin' soon weekly Friday night pig racin'" reads the sign in the Houston suburb of Katy. It goes on to promote a greased pig-catching contest, the opportunity to purchase a slow pig to save its life and--of all things--a pork cook-off. Bring your own bottle, the sign also says and boasts the availability of "clean port-o-pots." It sounds like a rowdy Friday night outing, Texas style. But the planned pig races are wallowing in controversy. A Muslim group having...

    When Texas middle schooler Jordan Wooley recently highlighted a reading assignment that required students to deny God, school administrators, her teacher, and some students painted her as a liar. But a flood of support from residents across the state, including and Gov. Greg Abbott, is buoying her spirits as she heads to the Governor’s Mansion Saturday to share her story. Wooley, 12, testified before the Katy Independent School Board last Monday about a reading assignment at West Memorial Junior High in which her teacher instructed students to label statements as fact, opinion or commonplace assertion, which her teacher characterized as...
  • Christian Daycare Workers Fired for Refusing to Call a Little Girl a Boy (homofacism in Katy Texas)

    Two daycare workers have been fired for refusing to go along with the center’s transgender agenda. Madeline Kirksey, one of the workers who is an author of a Christian book, says her religious liberty rights have been violated. The two were fired after refusing to call a little girl a boy. The two male parents of a six-year-old little girl told employees at the school to refer to their daughter as a boy, and to call her by a new masculine name. The little girl’s hair had also been cut like a boy’s. Kirksey told Breitbart Texas in an interview,...

    Katy Perry has launched an official 'left shark' costume inspired by one of the backing dancers from her Super Bowl halftime show, who became an overnight internet sensation when he appeared to forget his dance moves live on air. The 30-year-old singer, who was joined by backing dancers dressed as surfboards, palm trees and beach balls, as well as the now-infamous shark duo, for her rendition of California Girls and Teenage Dream at the NFL final in February, tweeted the news to her delighted followers on Monday evening, advising them to head to her online store and pick up one...

  • Another American Al-Qaedan Arrested Abroad.

    ...Well, today Ive come across an article from the Wall Street Journal noting that a Muslim with connections to Al Qaeda was arrested in Spain. Hes a U.S. citizen of Algerian origin. What makes the article noteworthy to me is that at the very end, the author comments that at one time Mr. Debhi lived in Katy, TX. I had previously commented on the issue of Muslims and a mosque in Katy, urging caution, pause and more importantly, Christian love, seeing a mission opportunity. As I noted however, if something insidious is going on in the Muslim community in Katy,...

    Thursday, August 13, 2009On the Glenn Beck radio program this morning Katy Abram, 35-year old mom, who asked Arlen Specter with boldness a question at a town hall meeting, poured her heart out to Glenn Beck. She was sobbing uncontrollably as she reported how the unscrupulous left had been calling her cell phone, emailing her constant threats and vile vitriol. The harassment didnt stop there it bled over to her fathers business. Past two days have been a whitlwind (sob)--I'm okay." Hear it for yourselves, you decide! Sounds like shades of Sarah PaIin.

    On Wednesday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced he had appointed Deirdre Delisi, his former chief of staff, chairwoman of the Texas Transportation Commission, which oversees the Texas Department of Transportation. As of today, I will not vote to confirm her appointment in the next legislative session. Ask almost any Texan, especially those who have the need to travel frequently on Interstate 35, about our Texas transportation system and they will tell you that many of our roads have extreme congestion, while other construction projects have experienced significant cost overruns. Last year, TxDOT notified the public that it had experienced a...

    The proposed Trans Texas Corridor did not find any fans, or any support, in Fort Bend County this week. At public meetings hosted by the Texas Department of Transportation in both Katy and Rosenberg, speaker after speaker, many in emotional tones, voiced their opposition to the proposed transportation corridor. No one spoke up in support of the proposal at either meeting. The Tuesday night session took place at Katy High Schools Performing Arts Center with over 200 residents in attendance. The evening before at the Rosenberg Civic and Convention Center, a similar crowd showed up to voice their opinions. In...

    KATY, Texas - A plan to build a mosque in this Houston suburb has triggered a neighborhood dispute, with community members warning the place will become a terrorist hotbed and one man threatening to hold pig races on Fridays just to offend the Muslims. Many neighborhood residents claim they have nothing against Muslims and are more concerned about property values, drainage and traffic. But one resident has set up an anti-Islamic Web site with an odometer-like counter that keeps track of terrorist attacks since Sept. 11. A committee has formed to buy another property and offer to trade it for...

    Fort Bend County Sheriff's deputies are looking for several suspects who robbed a Katy man in his Kelliwood home at gunpoint Monday afternoon. The incident occurred after the 61-year-old man answered the door of his home in the 21400 block of Kelliwood Green Drive in the Kelliwood subdivision, according to a sheriff's release. A man and woman who rang the doorbell, along with three or four other men, forced their way into the home. The suspects tied up the homeowner and placed him in the closet while they searched the home, the release stated. Upon finding a locked safe, the...

K.I.A., that's the Katy Islamic Association, plan to build a mosque here. "It's not an appropriate place to have a mosque or church," said resident Barbara Simpson. It isn't going over real well. "As a house of worship, they shouldn't be disturbing the peace and tranquility of 15 homes," said resident John Wetmore.

    KATY All snout and tail, the pink and brown pigs contentedly rooting in the wire pen behind Craig Baker's stone shop seem piggishly comic. They're racing pigs, after all, and that's got to be funny. But few in the sprawling subdivisions along Baker Road are laughing. These pigs are subtle weapons, here to show the new neighbors the Katy Islamic Association they aren't entirely welcome. Tension has been growing in this west Harris County community since September when the Muslim group announced it had purchased 11 acres south of Interstate 10 to build a mosque, school, community...

    After Katy ISD voters' rejection of a $261.5 million bond proposal to build new schools and renovate aging facilities, officials say they will regroup this week to determine the next step toward passing a future bond issue. The district's referendum was among the elections held throughout the Houston area on Saturday to fund everything from new school construction to jail expansions and libraries. By law, the Katy school district cannot put another bond issue before voters until November. "Our biggest concern is that it puts us behind in the construction schedule to accommodate new students," school district spokesman Steve Stanford...

    A crowd of between 2000-2500 people gathered at Rhodes Memorial Stadium in Katy, TX for "A Rally and Prayer for America". It seems like every event attended is a little different from earlier experiences, and this event was no exception. This event had more prayer than previous gatherings. Of the nine speakers, four were local ministers, but another reason for this was news regarding loss of life overseas and the apparent gross disregard for the Geneva convention by the Iraqi government. Speeches were given from the Mayor of Katy as well as two member of Katy City Council. Those politicians...

    A jury awarded more than $24 million to a black family Wednesday, punishing the five men who burned a cross in their Katy yard. The jury forewoman said the award is a strong signal that racist acts come with a heavy price. "We wanted to send a big message," Shirlene Williams, 41, said later. Williams said the jurors had at one point arrived at a figure but were unhappy with it, and went back and added more. The eight-member jury found that Matthew Marshall, Corydon Parsons, Paul Bergeron, Darin White and Wayne Mathews, all 23, were guilty of negligence, defamation...
