Texas Supreme Court overturns Houston “transgender restroom” law July 28, 2015

A little bit of good news, anyway.  The Texas Supreme Court has overturned a Houston ordinance driven by gomorrist Mayor Parker that radically expanded “rights” for those given over to perverse inclinations, including the ability of “transgenders” to use any public restroom they wished.  This ordinance was widely unpopular and resulted in a large recall effort that was dismissed, quite possibly illegally, by the city on a technicality.  That recall effort led to an attempt to persecute Houston area pastors (all protestants – no Catholic pastor helped lead the effort).

At any rate, the Texas Supreme Court has found the ordinance unconstitutional:

In a victory for reason and common sense, the Texas Supreme Court has given the city of Houston 30 days to either repeal it’s ridiculous rules governing public restroom use by the opposite sex or put it on the ballot for voter approval.

The law was intended to make it possible for trans genders to choose whatever bathroom they felt comfortable in using. Opposition to the bill resulted in city officials subpoening the sermons and other documents from 5 local pastors, looking for violations of the equal rights statute. The subpoenas were withdrawn following a nationwide outcry…….. [I really think it was coverage on this blog that did it. Heh]

………The city has until Aug. 24 to act on the court’s order, which also suspended the equal-rights ordinance, raising the possibility of a ballot fight that could sway the outcome of the November mayor’s race. Ms. Parker is term-limited and cannot seek re-election.

The ordinance, approved by the city council in May 2014, added gender identity and sexual orientation to the city’s equal-rights law, touching off a backlash over transgender bathroom use.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott praised the court’s decision Friday, saying that, “Freedom of expression can only exist once government removes itself from stifling free speech, repressing religious liberty and interfering with the lives of its citizens.”

Yeah, well, Abbot’s opinion – not perfect even in itself – is probably in the distinct minority today.  I mean, do we have to discuss all this heavy stuff all the time?  Can’t we just get back to our Whataburger and Kardashians and just let people do what they want?  I mean, really………

Sorry folks that is it for me today.  Regular blogging will resume tomorrow, God willing.

As much as I appreciate decent judicial rulings, and this one is nice, the American system of government is sick at its core. There will be exceptions to the rule; politicians and judges will say and do decent things from time to time, but the overall path is certain. We, as a nation, have abandoned our God and have embraced atheistic anarchy. The arc of power belongs to Obama and his liberal allies such as the butchers of Planned Barrenhood. At the end of the day, it is not politicians, political parties or conservative judges who will restore order. It is we the people and we will have to do it the hard way. It is going to require resistance to the established order and force; civil disobedience. We will have to earn our liberty under God, or we will never get it back.

It reminded me of the famous quote of Thomas Jefferson to Sam Adams, in reference to the newly adopted Constitution, and it’s guarantee of our Liberty, bequeathed to their progeny through the blood of patriots.

“What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.” Thomas Jefferson, Nov 13, 1787.

Technically, i don’t think they found the ordinance unconstitutional. If I understand the opinion correctly, they found the process by which the ordinance was enacted unconstitutional – or more specifically, the refusal of the city council and Mayor Gomorrah to put it to a vote of the people violated the City charter.

God bless small town Texas, they’re the only thing keeping this great state from going to hell. Don’t be surprised if Mayor Porker tries to run for statewide office when her term is up. I’m sure she’ll lock up the Travis County vote.

“That recall effort led to an attempt to persecute Houston area pastors (all protestants – no Catholic pastor helped lead the effort).”

Of course not. Who are they to judge? These “pastors” are far more interested in conforming to Pope Francis’ will than they are to God’s revealed will.

Besides, I don’t doubt that more than half of the Catholic pastors are gay, anyway.

If I sound cynical, it’s because I am. This faithless pseudo-church is on Air Satan’s Concorde Flight 666 to You Know Where … and far too many Catholics have unwittingly bought tickets.

Our liberty will not be passed on via a few sane judges, or the random friendly politician. I think this time, it is required that we defend this precious commodity ourselves. It is going to be work, it is going to be violent, and it is going to take time. As much as I appreciate this judge, he is a lonely man in a lost cause. Gird your loins, as it were, because the nation of ordered law and liberty we have known all our lives is GONE. It must be regained by force, now, or forgotten forever.

To quote Thomas Jefferson in reference to the Constitution in which men of stature and comfort risked all, including their fortunes and their lives, for the sake of sacred principle; their gift to us of freedom and liberty:

“What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? THE TREE OF LIBERTY MUST TBE REFRESHED from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.” (1787)

Don’t kill federal agents. That was condemned by St. Thomas. Read instead On Kingship, by St. Thomas.
