There are apparently some government officials in Houston who haven't read the Constitution and don't know the history of clerics in the Revolution, elimination of slavery, the Civil Rights movement, every war protest, and construction of every social agency from schools to hospitals. Somehow they've gotten the idea pastors can't preach morality and politics from the pulpit. That should surprise the ones preaching about climate change and income gap, which is also the topic of many (boring) sermons and church workshops. I wish I had $5 for every sermon I heard against the Viet Nam war in the 1970s.
The mayor of Houston is a tyrant and bigot. Transgenders now think THEY are being thrown under the bus because they might not have open-to-all toilets if she backs down.
