More than two dozen churches in Texas are suing for the right not to hire LGBTQ people for church jobs. They also want the right to bypass women as clergy. They are suing the city of Austin over it”s anti-discrimination policy, which has been around since 1992. The Houston-based U.S. Pastor Council says 25 of its member churches in Austin don’t want to follow the city ordinance that bans discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. The churches “will not consider practicing homosexuals or transgender people for any type of church employment,” organization officials said.
