Dateline: San Antonio, Texas aka: Obama “PROMISE ZONE”
San Antonio City Council voted to pass a senseless ordinance that extends an alleged “non-discrimination protection” to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders. The vote was 8 to 3.
The net result of the proposed ordinance is that it restricts free speech and religious liberty. It is opposed by gubernatorial candidate and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, as well as brilliant U.S. Senator Ted Cruz who has argued before the U.S. Supreme Court 9 times during his career. There will no doubt be legal challenges due to constitutional concerns of this crazy city ordinance.
Texas Values President Jonathan Saenz released the following statement in response to the vote:
“Today a majority of the San Antonio City Council voted to approve a radical ordinance that a majority of the people of San Antonio oppose, even adding new language at the last minute. This ordinance will be used as a weapon against people of faith and family values just as other laws have been used in other states. The ordinance lacks transparency, lacks evidence of a real need, and is plagued with major constitutional concerns. The question now is when will the first legal challenge begin and what will the cost be to taxpayers at the end of the litigation that will certainly come.”
