Let’s Start Treating Humans Humanely

Thank you for this article. Sobering facts. I read somewhere that a large segment of our society has turned from being 'pro-choice' to being 'pro-abortion'. I think many of these people do not want to deal with the science you cite in your article and would rather just tune it out and be in denial
Chuck, this is what I like about your articles on this. Unlike Todd Starnes who will report on these frustrating issues but then provide now clear ideas on what to do, you provide some clear action steps that people can take to oppose government overreach. I don't believe that being a person of faith in the US means rolling over and being a willing accomplice to the allow the state to unjustly erode your rights. Something has to be worth fighting for (in a the right way). Leftist fanatics and their allies in government and media will continue to push for things like this as long as they are unopposed and believe that they can simply get away with it.

Criminalizing Dissent Via Lawfare

At some point, people must be willing to take a stand and not be willing to comply with misuse of the law. The more that leftist believe that they can get away with 'lawfare' the more they will use it to silence and intimidate those who won't tow the PC line in all areas of life.
This sounds like what Joe Biden did in his debate with Paul Ryan in the 2012 VP debate. Would show a lot of bluster, condescend, interrupt Ryan, and throw falsehoods out there about his opponents position. I hope Garcia was equally as forceful back in rejecting Kuster's bombastic remarks and condescending style.
Very insightful and penetrating analysis

Fascist Leftists in Houston

I agree with many of the posters here. Extreme 'progressive' leftists will continue to exceed their authority as long as people allow them to get away with it. Freedom loving people can't just be like sheep and watch and stare as scenarios like this play out. Venting on internet blogs is not enough. Ways must be found to appropriately yet forcefully send the message to extreme 'progressive' leftists that freedom loving people will not abide this type of corruption and abuse of power, no matter how 'proper' this abuse is power is spun by its perpetrators.
Sen. Cruz: City of Houston Has No Business Asking Pastors for Sermons Releases statement about City of Houston subpoena October 15, 2014 | (202) 228-7561 WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today released the following statement responding to the City of Houston’s recent subpoena requiring pastors to submit sermons: “I'm proud to stand with the pastors. Religious liberty is the very first protection in the Bill of Rights, the foundation of all of our liberties. The City of Houston’s subpoenas demanding that pastors provide the government with copies of their sermons is both shocking and shameful. For far too long, the federal government has led an assault against religious liberty, and now, sadly, my hometown of Houston is joining the fight. This is wrong. It's unbefitting of Texans, and it's un-American. The government has no business asking pastors to turn over their sermons. These subpoenas are a grotesque abuse of power, and the officials who approved them should be held accountable by the people. The Mayor should be ashamed. And we should all be proud to stand up and defend the pastors who are resisting these blatant attempts to suppress their First Amendment rights."
Todd Starnes: Please write a follow up article to this stating what happened. Articles like this are frustrating unless people take concrete action. The raise awareness but people need to act now to defend their legitimate freedoms before they are further eroded.
David wrote: " As for this Houston issue, this is one of the most egregious violations of free speech we've seen in a long time. It's one thing to REQUEST copies of sermons, but to DEMAND them and SUBPOENA them? A subpoena has to be issued by a court clerk, and I can't imagine that any judge would go along with it. Surely some judge in a higher court will issue an injunction to stop this insanity." David you and I don't often agree on the topic of SSM but am respectful of your being fair minded on this point.
This smacks of over-reach. Church's are not government agencies whose non classified records you can obtain through public records act requests or freedom of information act requests. Subpoenas? Must be administrative, not court ordered. What legitimate legal authority e does the city council and mayor of Houston have do this? None. This is extremely serious, and dangerous. Starnes is right. A time comes when you must be willing to defy an action that you know is illegal, unethical, and an attempt to suppress your legitimate rights. If this can happen in Texas, imagine how this can run amok in very blue states, unless people take a stand against it now.
