The leadership of the Texas metropolis of San Antonio is working on ordinance changes aimed at punishing those who speak out against homosexuality.

The San Antonio City Council is doing some housecleaning to combine all of its anti-discrimination rules and ordinances into one. The consolidated ordinance states a desire to adopt a “comprehensive and expanded non-discrimination policy with revisions to outdated terminology.”

According to Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, the city leaders want to add two categories to the policy: sexual orientation and gender identity.

“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”

Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.

“They said they've never seen this kind of language in any other ordinance in any other city that they've dealt with,” the pastor shares. “It is unprecedentedly wrong – and of course the citizens of San Antonio must stop it.”

Flowers maintains the ordinance violates state and federal constitutions in terms of freedom of speech and religion. He is inviting people throughout the U.S. to call the members of the San Antonio City Council to politely voice their opposition.

This business is all leading up to silencing the Church since Catholics will the last people standing who will speak against homosexuality.

Who knew???

On my blog, I've been running an informal series called "Modern Test Acts". Back when England was going through its anti-Catholic phase, they made anyone who wanted a public position higher than Town Dog-Catcher swear an oath denying the doctrine of transubstantiation. With homosexuality and gender bending, my prediction is that something similar is on the horizon for Catholics and anyone who believes in sexual normalcy. Corporations and government departments will craft mission statements with language that can be used as barriers to employment or grounds for termination. Of course the usual suspects cry that we are just being paranoid, but when pressed and presented with evidence, more than one such has blurted out point-blank that we deserved it.
