As a Believer in Jesus Christ, How Should I Vote on Proposition One, the Bathroom Ordinance?

Vote No! No Men in Women’s Bathrooms, Showers and Locker Rooms

If you listen to all the radio commercials, and read the rhetoric put out by the proponents of Proposition one, it can be very confusing for the individual who wishes to express his/her faith when they go to vote at the polls this fall.

The immoral elements in our city have been able to influence those who sit on Houston City Council, and have placed Proposition One on the ballot, which reads as follows:

“Proposition 1: [Relating to the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance.] Are you in favor of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, Ord. No. 2014-530, which prohibits discrimination in city employment and city services, city contracts, public accommodations, private employment, and housing based on an individual’s sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or pregnancy?”

None of us wish to negatively discriminate against the groups listed in the ordinance, and everyone supports equal rights, but not if they involve indecency! Keep men out of women and girls’ washrooms. showers and locker rooms! That is not equality, it is simply perversion!

The Christian has much guidance in this area, from the precious Word of God.  As a believer grows in Christ, God reveals more and more of Himself through the study of the His word, the Bible.

Scripture is clear that as a man or woman repents of their sin, comes to Christ for forgiveness and cleansing, they voluntarily place their lives under the authority of God, as well as the authority of the Bible.

As one repents, turns from their sin, and accepts Christ’s substitutionary death, burial, and resurrection and forgiveness of their sin, God empowers them to live the Christian life, and His Spirit, the great teacher, leads them in all truth, as they renew their mind through prayer, fellowship with God and fellow believers, and the study of the Bible. Romans 12: 1-2 tells us “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Note the phrase “be not conformed to this world”.  God wants us to denounce the evil that we may have embraced in our former lives, and come under the authority of the Word of God, so that we live in such a way, by the power of the Holy Spirit, that we may “prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Proposition one is a deceitful effort by sexually deviant individuals and a complicit City Council to make the voters of Houston believe that if this proposition does not pass, then injustice will occur to many groups, such as pregnant women. This is ludicrous. The rights of all individuals have been protected by federal legislation for decades.

The reality is that if Proposition one does pass, sexually deviant individuals, adults as well as children, will have the right to enter into the restrooms, locker rooms, and showers designated for the opposite gender.

Scripture clearly teaches us the motivation behind this.  Romans 1:18-32 tells us:

“18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 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:

27 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.

28 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;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:32 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.”

The individuals described in the first chapter of Romans seek to carry out their evil deeds under the guise of “equality” and condemn discernment of right from wrong as being “discriminatory”.

I urge you to seek God’s face and the counsel of His Holy Word, and know that these deviant lifestyles are not to be encouraged by allowing them to practice their sinful lusts at the expense of the women and children of Houston.

I urge you to vote NO to Proposition One, and don’t allow men to enter into the bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms of your children and female family members!

    Trump Wins! Harris County Republicans Suffer Biggest Loss in History of the HCRP

    Last night’s presidential results were historic. For the first time in decades, Republicans will have a uniquely consolidated power base, controlling the White House, Senate, and House, as well as a majority of governorships. As a result, we should be able to appoint conservative justices, eliminate Obamacare, get rid of the Johnson Amendment (which censures the church), cut the national debt, open up the energy markets, protect religious liberties, and so much more. As my friends at AFA stated, “We were about to go over the cliff. The knockout punch was about to be delivered to the America that our Founding Fathers handed to us.

    Now It Is Your Time And Your Turn!

    Now it is your time! Do you ever see destructive things going on around you and wish you had the ability and opportunity to stop them? Like when you hear the occurrence of some tragedy, do you ever wish that you could have been in the right place at the right time, to prevent it?

    On Tuesday, November 3rd, you have an opportunity to do just that. If you live in the city of Houston, you will have the opportunity to vote NO to Proposition One, the “bathroom” or H.E.R.O. ordinance.

    Contrary to the proponents of this ordinance, it has nothing to do with equal rights (which are already protected under federal and state law), but everything to do with promotion of sexual deviance in our society, in an effort for us to accept yet one more assault on our common sense and decency.

    Support Lance Berkman Vote “No” on Proposition 1 Bathroom Ordinance

    Six time Major League Baseball All Star, Lance Berkman, recently took a bold principled stand in opposition to Houston Proposition 1 – The Bathroom Ordinance. The liberal left and LGBT community are attacking Lance Berkman for having the courage to stand on his principles. He needs our support.

    Lance Berkman is getting bashed in the sports media because he exerted his First Amendment Right of Freedom of Speech by recording a radio commercial, opposing Houston’s Proposition 1, the Bathroom Ordinance. His commercial began airing this past Thursday. The Bathroom Ordinance would allow troubled men, who claim to be women, to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms.

    Houston City Council Is Legislating Immorality To Allow Boys Into The Girls Bathrooms and Showers

    For many years we have all heard from both the Right leaning Democrats and the Left leaning Republicans that we cannot “legislate morality”. While for now I will not address the stupidity of this I would like to make a few points for you to ponder.

    The City of Houston is trying to legislate morality, but in there their Godless hearts they will fist attempt to re-define “morality” before they legislate it so that it to include the sexually confused and the sexually perverted.

    When you go to vote during early voting and on November third, and hopefully you will vote, the first thing you will see is Proposition one, also known as the HERO or “bathroom” ordnance.
