Kremlin Tactics in Houston, Texas

2014 October 29

Bishop David EppsArticle by BISHOP DAVID EPPS

Politicians in Houston, TX have apparently adopted Kremlin tactics in dealing with dissent. The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

This all began when the City Council passed an ordinance allowing, among other things, men to use women’s rest rooms and vice versa. The action was part of the city’s “non-discrimination ordinance.” Opponents of the ordinance launched a petition drive that gathered over 50,000 signatures, far more than the under 18,000 signatures needed to put the ordinance to a public vote.

It had been a long time—a very long time—since I had walked through the doors. Some things had been changed, added to, moved, or eliminated…but it was the same: familiar, warm, and comforting. I was back in my hometown of Kingsport, Tennessee and it was a Sunday. It was just before 11:00 a.m. and I found a seat about two of the way back and settled in. After 41 years, I was back in a pew at Mountain View United Methodist Church.

I had started going to the church youth group on a Sunday evening during the summer of 1966. read more…
