Editor’s note: Chuck Norris’ weekly political column debuts each Monday in WND and is then syndicated by Creators News Service for publication elsewhere. His column in WND often runs hundreds of words longer than the subsequent release to other media.
It all started in September when Houston Mayor Annise Parker and City Attorney David Feldman issued an “overly broad” subpoena for the sermons of select ministers who opposed the city’s equal rights ordinance concerning “transgender” bathroom usage.
Because of intense national opposition from even Texas’ attorney general, this past Wednesday Parker and Feldman appeared to recant or at least reduce their flagrant overreach and disregard of the ministers’ legal protections under the First Amendment. By the weekend, however, the truth came out that they were only using political smoke and mirrors to try and simmer the patriot fury but not change course to constitutional compliance.
