Video Opposing Lesbian Houston Mayor Also Shows Why She’s A Badass

Dave Welch, Executive Director of the Houston Area Pastor Council created this video of openly lesbian mayor Annise Parker improving the lives of the city’s 61,976 LGB citizens. But while Welch has made Parker his perpetual foe, his video plays like a promotional ad explaining why LGBT voters should choose her in the upcoming November 8th election.

It even has heartwarming piano music. Of course, his intended church audiences may feel differently.

      Wow – what a massive misfire. I can’t help but wonder if it’s a set up by someone on her side?

      Is this all they can come up with? A quick kiss on the cheek and working to end housing discrimination?

      If she has enemies like this, she doesn’t even need friends… They just made her decent promotional campaign material for free, and the note at the end telling people to show this video at their churches just makes me think of a lot of older folks watching this on a Sunday morning and thinking “What a pleasant woman who cares about cleaning up the bayou…I think I’ll vote for her” while the words Will this be Houston’s future? flash on a picture of a beautiful shiny day.

      This video makes me want to become a lesbian and run for mayor.

      I agree with the others above, however, if you live in Houston, pay attention to the quote that says “16% voter turnout”. This is very dangerous; just a couple of activist wingnut churches could steal the election from the will of the majority. See the bit at the end where it says what can you do to help? Make sure that you and everyone you know turns out to vote.
