PASTOR CALLS FOR BOYCOTT OF HOUSTON
Posted by faithandthelaw on January 27, 2010
A new Web site is urging people to “Boycott Houston.”
Why? Because the site’s owner thinks the city is becoming “a Texas version of San Francisco” and “the abortion capital of America.” Translation: David Grisham of Amarillo doesn’t like Houston electing a gay mayor or Planned Parenthood’s plans to open a big facility here.
Grisham is also behind repentamarillo.com, which calls on Christians to enter spiritual warfare to save Amarillo’s soul.
“If you were to do a poll 85 to 90 percent of people in Houston would say they were a Christian. Well how in the world could an openly homosexual mayor get elected?” Grisham asked during a brief interview, where he also said he has nothing personal against Parker.
So far, the boycott hasn’t gained much traction. A petition on the Web site in support of the boycott has been signed by just four people so far, including “Hugh Jass.”
In a written statement, Parker said: “I don’t take this personally. Of course, every city has the far fringe on both sides of the spectrum. This is greatly offset by the large amount of communication from people who want to come here because Houston is progressive, diverse and tolerant.”
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
