Pastors in Houston are fighting back against an attempt by the mayor to silence them from the pulpit.
Some have been told to provide the government with their sermons. Now, they’re getting a little help from one of the top conservative voices in the country: Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
On Thursday in Houston, Cruz visited his home church to give city officials a lesson on religious liberty.
“The city of Houston has no power, no legal authority to silence the Church,” he said.
The controversy began over a city ordinance that not only bans discrimination against LGBT people; it also allows them to choose which bathroom they want to use.
