Vote NO to Proposition one During Early Voting and on Election Day to prevent Men from Entering Women’s Restrooms and Boys from Entering Girl’s Showers and Locker Rooms!

So often we hear of government atrocities, and think that we would like to do something to stop them, but feel powerless to do so.  With corruption at every level of government, politicians who refuse to listen to us, and limited personal resources, far too often we are tempted to just give up and cave in to these violations of our God-given freedoms.

I want to give you some practical steps of action that you can take to combat this overreach by the Houston city council.  At the end of this article you will have the resources and tools to really make a difference in this very important battle for the future of the city of Houston.

As you are aware, Proposition one (the bathroom ordinance) will be on the ballot this fall.  Early voting is less than one month from now, and if you follow this plan of action faithfully, every day, you will be certain of making a positive impact on our city’s future.

The first step is to become educated regarding the ballot language of this ordinance, listed here:

“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?”

That sounds like something you could agree with, doesn’t it?  Don’t be fooled; Everyone supports equal rights but not if they involve indecency! Keep opposite genders out of each other’s washrooms, showers and locker rooms! That is not equality, it is simply perversion!

What the proponents of the “bathroom” ordinance won’t tell you is that the civil rights of those groups listed in the ordinance have been guaranteed for decades by both federal and state legislation.  Other cities in Texas have enacted “equal rights” ordinances, but have specifically excluded men from entering women’s restrooms, and boys from going into girl’s locker rooms and showers.  Think of the negative impact on the small businesses in Houston, who will be liable for fines up to $5000.00 per incident if they even attempt to stop a potential sexual predator who claims that he is gender “confused” from going into women’s bathroom facilities.  Is it not better to prevent a potentially dangerous situation from happening, in an effort to protect our wives and daughters?


This is just another over reach from the same Parker administration that subpoenaed the sermons of Houston’s pastors in an effort to deny freedom of speech to Houston churches.

Now that you know the background of the “bathroom” ordinance, here are some practical steps that you can take to combat it.

In closing, I would like to remind you that your involvement in this campaign is absolutely critical to its success.  You might not be able to take all the steps listed above, but whatever you can do, will have an indelible impact.  I would like to remind you that:

•In 1776, one vote gave America the English language instead of German

•In 1876, one vote gave Rutherford B. Hayes the United States presidency

•In 1923, one vote gave Adolph Hitler control of the Nazi party

When I read how impactful changes were wrought throughout history, I don’t find that many stories about great crusades and city-wide revivals and mass meetings where an entire country or whole communities were motivated to change. More often, I find it was individual men and women who made a difference. We see the lives of individuals who thought and fought, and said and did what was right—regardless—and as a result, history was made.

We have a lot of work to accomplish and only one month to do so; won’t you make a commitment for the future of Houston, and partner with the Campaign for Houston in this endeavor?

    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.

    You might feel similarly by reading the Republican Party platform and comparing it to the words and actions of so-called “Republicans”, from Harris County to Washington D.C.

    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.
