A big win for pastors as the Texas State Supreme Court forces the Houston City Council to put the controversial H.E.R.O. ordinance up for a popular vote on the November 2015 ballot.

The measure began as an “Equal Rights Ordinance” that barred any discrimination (real or imagined) of the LGBT community. Pastors who opposed the measure were targeted and hassled.
