Ceremony at Christian school draws protesters
Perry signs abortion bill and gay marriage resolution
By Aman Batheja and Jack Douglas Jr.
Star-Telegram Staff Writer (I copied this article since this newspaper doesn't keep their stories online for long for free. It has been edited for length.)
(My comments in blue)
FORT WORTH - Social conservatives withstood a protest from picketers at a Fort Worth Christian school Sunday as Gov. Rick Perry signed legislation that some believe will ignite a "battle in Texas" over moral issues.
This battle has been going since the Cain and Able, enough grandstanding, just objectively report.)
Perry signed a bill requiring written permission from a parent before a minor can get an abortion. He also symbolically signed a proposition defining marriage as between a man and a woman, though it will be up to Texas voters to decide whether to amend the state constitution to reflect it.
Minors can't vote, drink, drive, but they are mature enough to remove a viable baby?? And rape/incest is less then 5 % so please don't use that scare tactic.
The governor drew criticism for choosing Calvary Christian Academy for the ceremony because some said it potentially violated a constitutionally guaranteed separation between church and state.
Yeah, Kerry, both Clinton's and many others NEVER used black churches to further their cause. Besides, Gov. Perry, unlike them, didn't do anything during a church service!!! It's a school, not a church service.
Perry, who has recruited a network of conservative pastors to help his re-election efforts next year, defended his selection of the school, which is affiliated with the Calvary Cathedral International church.
Gov. Perry has recruited many diverse groups, not just Christians and what's wrong with that?? Is it wrong for democrats to "recruit" their like-minded groups?
"Those people would be complaining; it [wouldn't] make any difference where we signed this piece of legislation. If we'd been in a Wal-Mart parking lot [instead], they'd still be griping about it." Said Perry.
While many protesters outside chanted "Separation of church and state," Perry said: "They don't like people of faith to be involved in this process. And people of faith are going to be involved in this process."
As an estimated 300 protesters picketed outside, some of the country's top socially conservative leaders shared the stage, each preaching the need for more religious faith in government to an overflow crowd of 1,000.
Only 300 protestors, how many agree with this decision? Multitudes more then 300. Liberals know the meaning of words. "Preaching" is a buzz word for "scary" Evangelicals pushing their agenda. All groups, if they worship God, the TV, or the self, all attempt to influence society. But Christians are called out for it since there is some unity and we're an easy target since there's such a thing as right and wrong.
"The time is now to reclaim our spiritual heritage," said Rod Parsley, from the Ohio-based Center for Moral Clarity. Parsley stressed the importance of pastors and others working for the approval of the gay marriage proposition.
Dwight McKissick, senior pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, said that, as an African-American, he was insulted by comparisons of the gay marriage movement to the civil rights movement. Homosexuals shouldn't "compare your sin with our skin," he said to wild applause.
I agree that homosexuals shouldn't be persecuted, but some gays do relate the past sins of genocide of slaves with their plight even though gays have a higher standard of living then most other demographics.
He scored points with the religious leaders inside the basketball gym. "Isn't it awesome," said Rabbi David Stone, "to have a godly governor?"
Again, not a pulpit, a gym!! Even churches can have services in gyms or schools when its not in session.
Some protesters were irked by the collapse of school-finance legislation during the Legislature's regular session, which ended last week. "We feel like Rick Perry has left the children behind," said J. Nile Fischer, executive director of the Tarrant County Democratic Party.
