A man from Communist Viet Nam endangered his life and that of his children in order to find freedom and peace in America. He traveled from his police state country to escape the mistreatment of Christians and who disparate totalitarianism.
Mr. Kahnh Huynh found his way to Houston, Texas seeking “freedom of religion”, knowing his freedom lay far away from his Communist Viet Nam country in America. Did Mr. Huynh find the peace and freedom he searched for in a new land he now calls home?
Mr. Kahnh and his family are now citizens of the United States and he pastors a Christian church in Houston, Texas. However, it seems that Pastor Kahnh is again facing a battle against Christianity similar to the battle he escaped from in the Communist country he left behind many years ago.
The mayor of Houston, Annise Parker has subpoenaed the sermons to his congregation not excluding personal communications he shared in regards to his Christian reputes against homosexuality. Mayor Parker claims his sermons are a personal reflection against her. The mayor is a self-proclaimed Lesbian.
One of the issues in the subpoena is in regard to which restroom is suitable for use by homosexuals. A woman who claims to be a man may by law; may use the men’s restroom; likewise men who are confused about their gender may accommodate themselves in the ladies restroom.
Pastor Huynk is only one pastor in Houston who is against this absurd law. The pastors are gathering signatures in hopes of dissuading the law for sharing public restrooms with confused genders that are opposite sexes.
Is the freedom of religion being attacked? If one Lesbian mayor in Houston, Texas can intimidate pastors of Christian churches for a reason that God Himself abhors; it can happen anywhere at any time in the United States of America; a country that in the same era Pastor Huynh risked his life to satisfy his desire for freedom of religion would have never allowed such an unethical law to be passed. Nevertheless it will continue happening until Christians are silenced if not in agreement with Homosexuality or Atheists beliefs.
At one time in history this great country relished under the laws of the United States Constitution and the Holy Bible; the year 2000 brought a new century full of destruction and deceit.
