San Antonio May Impose Anti-Christian Viewpoint Discrimination

Homosexuals constitute a tiny fragment of the population, and in a permissive culture like ours have very little to complain about. Why is their agenda suddenly such an urgent priority for the leftists running the government and media? Because as community organizers like to say, the issue is never the issue. The “gay rights” jihad isn’t about deviant sexual practices; it is about the power to impose an ideology by government force. It is also about crushing Christianity, a traditional bulwark against the tyranny of statism. For example, San Antonio bureauweenies have proposed a new ordinance:

“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age or disability.”

This means that no one who stands accused of ever having failed to revere homosexuality can hold public office or get a city contract in San Antonio, the nation’s seventh largest city. Among the ramifications:

Critics argue that the ordinance could ban Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin from serving on the city council.

They also believe the ordinance would also ban the city from doing business with anyone who fails to espouse politically correct views and businesses run by people of faith would be subject to criminal penalties if they refused to provide services that conflict with their religious beliefs related to homosexuality.

As Ken Klukowski of the Family Research Council observes,

“If it’s passed, any person who has either expressed any belief in favor of traditional marriage or in terms of Judeo-Christian morality regarding sexuality in general, verbally or in writing, could be barred from participating in public life on that city council.”

San Antonio is famous as the home of the Alamo, where legendary heroes William Travis, Davy Crockett, and Jim Bowie fought to the death for American values against the Mexican tyrant Santa Anna. Where are the heroes to defend freedom now?
