This appears to be far from over.  Please continue to pray for these pastors as well as Houston's mayor -

In what can only be called a case of the mentally ill vetting the righteous, open Lesbian Houston Mayor Annise Parker and officials with the city of Houston, Texas are now demanding to see the sermons of several pastors in the area following the cities attempts to allow men to use women’s restrooms.

 A lawsuit arose because of the measure put forward by the Houston City Council. The issue at stake is a legal one, but the larger problem is that the city is looking to involve pastors who are not involved in a lawsuit against the city, according to Alliance Defending Freedom.

Christians throughout the country will have an opportunity to take a stand in the coming days to defend Houston pastors targeted by the city government.

The event is "I Stand Sunday" scheduled for November 2nd.

Family Research Council is organizing the event, which will be held at Grace Community Church in Houston.  The pastor of the church, Steve Riggle, is one of the pastors subpoenaed as part of the lawsuit.   FRC is seeking churches to simulcast the event.

America,  on a collision course with God..??..!!.?.

The city of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, is threatening two ordained Christian ministers with arrest if they refuse to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

The Hitching Post Wedding Chapel is across the street from the Kootenai County Clerk’s office, which issues marriage licenses. Last week, Donald Knapp and his wife Evelyn, both ordained ministers who run the chapel, respectfully declined to perform a same-sex “marriage” ceremony.
According to the Coeur d’Alene city attorney, they now face up to 180 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines for each day they decline to perform that ceremony.
City officials said the Knapps are required to perform such ceremonies or face months in jail and/or thousands of dollars in fines. The city claims its "non-discrimination" ordinance requires them to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies despite the fact that they are Christians and the chapel publicly states it only performs Christian-based ceremonies.

"Come on let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew."—Exodus 1:10-12.
The children of this world are wise in their generation. Their policy may be short-sighted and their stratagems crooked, nevertheless the world admires the wisdom of their counsels, and makes light of the craftiness of their projects. In their opposition to the Christian church, the men of the world might certainly have been as well able to outwit her by the variety of their maneuvers as to overwhelm her by the force of their numbers, were it not that there is an unseen One in her midst, who is more than a match for the guile of their hearts and the might of their hosts.

“A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.” Proverbs 18:7

US Secretary of State John Kerry called for the resumption of peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians on Thursday, arguing that the talks were vital in the fight against Islamic extremism.
Speaking at a State Department ceremony marking the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, Kerry said that “it is imperative that we find a way to get back to the negotiations.”
Kerry, who just returned from Egypt where he attended an international conference that raised billion$ of dollar$ towards the reconstruction of Gaza, called for both sides to return to the negotiating table.
Kerry added that the ultimate goal of peace talks is “to find a way to create two states that can live together side by side, two peoples, with both of their aspirations being respected.”
“I still believe that’s possible, and I still believe we need to work towards it.”

The secretary further implied that Israel was responsible  for humiliating the Palestinians by denying them a state.
“People need to understand the connection, it has something to do with humiliation, denial and the absence of dignity,” he added.  Breaking Israel News
And the government of the USA continues to view black as white, and white as black..!!.., viewing Islam as a peaceful religion and viable partner in the peace process.
I do believe the inmates are running the asylum.

WAY TO GO TEXAS..!!!!!!..

It appears Houston' mayor and the city council are re-thinking their earlier subpoena requests.

The change in stance came after Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott sent a letter to city officials urging them to withdraw the subpoena.

The Houston Chronicle quotes Abbott's letter as saying, "In good faith, I hope you merely failed to anticipate how inappropriately aggressive your lawyers would be. Many, however, believe your actions reflect the city government's hostility to religious beliefs that do not align with city policies."

The city of Houston has issued subpoenas demanding a group of pastors turn over any sermons dealing with homosexuality, gender identity or Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor. And those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.

Among those slapped with a subpoena is Steve Riggle, the senior pastor of Grace Community Church. He was ordered to produce all speeches and sermons related to Mayor Annise Parker, homosexuality and gender identity.
The mega-church pastor was also ordered to hand over “all communications with members of your congregation” regarding the non-discrimination law.
Stand with the Houston pastors in prayer, remembering also to pray for their homosexual mayor and the city council.
The following was written for Israel, I understand that, but...

 “Behold, I am fashioning a disaster and devising a plan against you. Return now every one from his evil way, and reform your ways and deeds." Jeremiah 18:11

Sounds like a good word for America to me.   Just saying.
