Texas Toilet Seat Award for Legislators

100 Houston pastors film video in support of Texas Senate Bill 6 (SB6)

David Lane, the leader of the American Renewal Project, argues against a do-nothing approach for civil engagement, insisting that Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christians must organize for a return to the public square.

Lane writes:

“The currency in the political arena is: 1) how many votes can you bring to the table, or 2) how much money can you bring, that brings votes to the table. Press conferences, mass distribution of press releases, and getting an interview on FOX News is public relations–useful for boosting one’s reputation, improving one’s image, and promoting one’s self.

But “organizing” is the largest denomination in political currency. Speechifying is way down on the list of political currency, worth maybe a half-nickel. A Sunday sermon is not a denomination of political currency.”

With that in mind, Lane directed his readers to watch a video filmed this week by 100 Houston area pastors. The topic is the Texas Senate Bill 6 (SB6), otherwise known as a “Bathroom Bill.” Lane said that after he saw the video: “I wanted to throw my hat in the air and shout Hallelujah! Pastors are turning the corner, a new paradigm is being constructed in the public square to restore America to her Judeo-Christian heritage and re-establish a Biblical-based culture.”

For my part, I appreciate the multi-ethnic and multigenerational nature of the video.
