Houston Approves Controversial Gay Rights Ordinance

Friday, May 30, 2014 | Worthy News / US News


(CBN / Worthy News)-- The Houston City Council has approved a controversial gay rights ordinance that critics say would impede religious liberties.

The 11-6 vote came late Wednesday after more than 12 hours of debate and months of protests from area churches and Christian business owners.

They call the law unconstitutional because it infringes on their right to speak out against homosexuality.

  1. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
    And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
    Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. Romans 1:26-27, 32
