Lance Berkman, former Rice University and former Houston Astro star who was among the leaders of the successful efforts to defeat the controversial Houston "Equal Rights" Ordinance, or HERO, talked about personal attacks he received by the city's openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, following the vote.
"I didn't expect the mayor to make a personal attack," Berkman, who is now the head baseball coach at Second Baptist High School in Houston, said on KTRH 740 AM's "The Michael Berry Show." "I didn't expect her to talk about my girls or my family."
After the Tuesday's defeat of the ordinance, which would allow transgendered men to use women's bathrooms, Parker tweeted: "Lance Berkman played in St. Louis. Guess his girls didn't go to his games! SL has a non-discrimination ordinance." more >>

"I don't know what you're talking — I believe all life is worthy of the protection of our laws. That's what I believe," declared Rubio. more >>

"This outrageous referendum would've left women's restrooms wide open to registered male sex offenders and other sexual predators," wrote Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in a Facebook post.
"In spite of high-profile endorsements from the White House, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and Houston's gay activist mayor—this outrageous referendum lost. That's a victory and great news for Houston!" more >>
