Hiram Bingham…to reply to your statement about keeping religion out of government….What on earth does that mean?the USA Government is We the People, and that includes Christians.-The Houston pastors are not running political campaigns for election out of their churches. That is the only thing that could threaten a tax-exempt status, is it not?-The Mayor and Council used a subpoena to demand sermons and 17 other types of personal communications and filed a lawsuit against the pastors.-Sermons are public as soon as they are spoken.The city government has no right to personal communications of any citizen. -This is a leftist anti-Christian bullying by empty threats…I thank God the pastors have good legal representation to protect their First Amendment rights.-Just as we Christians must pay our taxes to the government, we have a right to participate in how the government operates and just as much right to express opinions as all other citizens. Maybe the Houston Christian community should petition the city to acknowledge equal rights to Christians????
