Anti-Gay Attacks Planned Against Houston Mayoral Candidate Annise Parker: 'The bottom line is that we didn't pick the battle, she did, when she made her agenda and sexual preference a central part of her campaign,' said Dave Welch, executive director of the Houston Area Pastor Council, numbering more than 200 senior pastors in the Greater Houston area. ... Parker, however, has not made these issues a central part of her campaign: "Parker has tread carefully in her candidacy for mayor, stressing frequently that she is running not as a gay candidate but as a qualified city official who's won election six times."


  1. I dunno. Her website about the issues is nothing but the gay agenda. I mean, just look at the first three examples:

    *"Safe Streets, Tough Choices"
    *"Energizing Houston's Economy"
    *"Hire Houston First"

    Why, I feel uncomfortable just seeing those!

    And then there's the oh, so subtle way she has the three little stars traipsing up the star in her logo if you roll over it. Is that a road? A boomerang?? A drunken smiley??? A RAINBOW‽‽‽

    Oy gevalt.

  2. hahaha. I think you're onto something with the stars, Dr. G...

  3. Hahaha. If these guys weren't threatening to attack her for it, I wouldn't have had a clue as to her esxuality. /sigh.

  4. In a completely random aside, props to the blog owners for however it is that the interrobang shows up as such. Best. Punctuation. Ever.
