Houston Sends ‘Dear John’ Letter on Bathroom Bill

In the battle over the Houston’s Proposition 1 bathroom bill, LGBT activists don’t have to pay for advertising. The media is doing plenty of it — for free!

The latest example is an angry piece in the Washington Post, in which Jonathan Capehart tries — unsuccessfully — to tamp down fears about the measure’s effects. In most of the rant, he takes aim at anyone in Houston who dares to share what the law would actual do — which is force local businesses to celebrate homosexuality and allow grown men and women to enter opposite-sex public bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms whenever they “feel” their biology doesn’t apply.

If anyone’s guilty of “misinformed hysteria,” it’s the ordinance’s blind support!

Not only does the ordinance explicitly state that it’s illegal to bar a person from another bathroom — but it fines anyone who does object up to $5,000! Capehart ignores this, of course, as do many of the measure’s apologists.

That’s why the FRC Action’s Super PAC, Faith Family Freedom Fund, is launching a new ad campaign in Houston to set the record straight.
