Re: Call-To-Action: HB421 & HB659

HB 421 got attached to SB 2065 by Rep. Rinaldi and voila!!! It's law!! The approximately 29,000 mainstream churches in Texas can now protect their flocks and leaders, teachers, elders, etc. as they have always done!!

Re: Call-To-Action: HB421 & HB659

Well... I spoke too soon. HB 421 is languishing in the hands of the House Calendars Committee. Apparantly, 38 representatives signed on to the bill aren't enough. It's not too late though to put pressure on the Calandars Committee. Call now to express your support for the bill: (512) 463-0758

Re: HB421

It was a good day for churches, I think. One of the guys presented a letter he received from the author of the May 10, 2007 DOJ opinion, re: Volunteer Church Security members being under authority of TX OC1702. The letter apparently clarifies that the May 10 2007 letter is advisory only and non-bind...

Re: Church Volunteer Security Groups

If 30-40 people would have shown up to testify, and if a couple hundred would have made calls and sent emails... Then the godless democrats on the committee wouldn't have been so cocky and self righteous... Yes, I'm letting my true feelings show... Deal with it! At least for now, perhaps someone cou...
