"Houston Minister Warns That Democratic Party ‘Will Be A Party Of Homosexuals’"

Lane Lewis

A Houston minister is going after Lane Lewis, an openly gay candidate for the Harris County Democratic Party chair and advocating on behalf of his opponent Keryl Douglas. In a letter to fellow ministers, Rev. Willie J.Howard warns that Lewis is “openly Gay and has already told supporters behind closed doors that the Democratic Party will endorse a Gay Marriage agenda in November.”

“Friends, this is not the direction we need to go as a community or Party. If the gays take over we are poised to lose everything we have worked for during President Obamas historic win. The Republicans will rally their troops behind a united front of making sure this push for same sex marriage is defeated,” Douglas writes:

Keryl’s opponent is being supported heavily by Annise Parker, another openly gay politician. If you haven’t seen what has happened at the City of Houston here are the facts:

- More Gays and Lesbians serve in leadership roles on boards and commissions.

- The City of Houston got rid of Blue Cross Blue Shield because CIGNA supports Same Sex benefits.

- The Mayor openly advocated the support of Gay marriage and even tried to embarrass President Barack Obama because he believes marriage is between one man and one woman.

Please share this with your friends and loved ones. This race is the most important down ballot race we will vote for. If we don’t Vote they will continue their take over and pretty soon, the party that we once knew will be a party of homosexuals. Our directives shouldn’t come from San Francisco, but from Harris County voters. How will Democrats look electing a man who sales perfume for a living and lays up with another man? Why are our so called community leaders (Rev. Lawson, Howard Jefferson etc.) supporting this agenda? Are they supportive of this lifestyle too??

Lewis was president of the Houston GLBT Political Caucus and is currently serving as the interim president of the Harris County Democratic Party.
