    So far, Texas government is our friend. Our Governor, Lt Governor, Attorney General and several of our Texas legislators are working very hard to keep religious liberty at the forefront.

    Agreed. Unfortunately I think in the next few years it won't matter what's after the politician's name as Christians are ostracized from society.

    So many of those leaving California for Texas (or from the northeast to Florida) say they are doing so due to the crime, corruption and confiscatory taxes, but then immediately vote for those who policies are identical to the ones that brought about those problems in the first place.


    What is it they say about insanity being repeating the same actions over and over expecting a different outcome?

    I'm always still in trouble again

    We have been, we have several Pastor Response networks, and I regularly attend, and testify if needed, in Austin on these matters.

    My only concern about the Californians moving to Texas is that they'll forget WHY they left California, and continue voting for Democrats.

    In Denmark churches were allowed to keep running as long as there was a certain distance between the members of the congregation.

    That's an awful long commute to be able to attend church.
