Clergy group calls for progressive agenda as early voting begins
houstonchronicle.com / Tue, 25 Oct 2016 03:54:51 UT
Charging that the run-up to the 2016 presidential election resembles the darkest days of pre-civil rights America, leaders of a new progressive association of religious leaders Monday called on Houston voters to reject candidates whose campaigns have been marked by the "rhetoric of hate and violence." While they stopped short of naming candidates who should be opposed, members of the recently formed Faith Leaders Coalition of Greater Houston expressed disapproval of aspects of Republic presidential candidate Donald Trump's bid for office. The group's vice president, the Rev. Lisa Hunt, pastor of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, charged that the moral authority of faith leaders has been co-opted by political parties which seek to leverage our numbers and influence for their consolidation of power. Trump actively has courted white evangelical voters, and a recent Public Religion Research Institute poll reports that almost 70 percent of that group favors his candidacy. The city ordinance, which would have for the first time barred discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, was opposed by some evangelical clergy and rejected 2-to-1 by voters.
