St. John’s prayer vigil (Sunday evening)
Media sources reported PFLAG as the host of the prayer vigil at St. John’s Sunday evening to remember and honor the victims of the Orlando shootings. This event was organized and hosted by the fine people at St. John’s. PFLAG regrets the error in reporting and appreciates all this congregation does for our community and for always stepping up when their is a need. Thank you St. John’s.

In response to the tweet this morning by our Lt Gov Dan Patrick. First is was very disrespectful and in ver poor taste. If in fact this was a pre-schedule tweet, at the very least, he should have been respectful and responsible enough to stop this from being posted. Second, his inability to get the tweet down in a rapid response was even more damaging and disrespectful.
Our position must be one of LOVE not Hate and maybe give him the benefit. But he sure needs to be informed this was very inappropriate and was not well received.
We do need to gather all of our facts before we respond. When I first saw this post, it was one line (reap what you sow) when in fact the entire verse , three lines, was in the tweet.
IN light of this terrible tragedy , PFLAG will be calling for a community wide prayer meeting to show our response and respect for the loved ones and the survivors of this senseless act of violence

According to recent sources this whole battle over bathrooms is a result of the same sex marriage law ruling by the supreme court. Conservative groups took up this issue for their next battle.
Of course our disconnected Texas Government responded with the same strategy they have repeated on numerous occasion——-YOU can’t tell Texas what to do—-WATCH THIS !!!
Texas’ Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the state is prepared to forfeit billions rather than let the Obama administration dictate restroom policy for its 5.2 million students. “We will not be blackmailed by the president’s 30 pieces of silver,” Patrick said.
Just exactly WHERE do you think he and our Govenor are going to continue to come up with millions and billions of funds to replace when they cut off their noises to spite their face. YOU !!!!!!!!
PEOPLE please wake up——this is NOT the first time Texas has turned away funding over a law they did not agree with.
