Justin Butterfield is an attorney with Liberty Institute. Their mission is to defend and restore religious liberty across America: in our schools, for our churches and throughout the public arena. Justin graduated from Harvard Law School and has had scholarly articles published in "The Advocate" and the "Texas Journal of Law and Public Policy".

This Crosstalk brought news of a proposed anti-discrimination ordinance in San Antonio, Texas, that could have someone removed from the city council, a board or commission if the individual expresses or demonstrates a bias by word or deed toward LGBT individuals.

This ordinance would also apply to anyone who does business with San Antonio and any disagreement because of traditional or biblical views would not be tolerated.

Liberty Institute sent a letter to the city council members and the mayor explaining the following:

  • (1)--Why this ordinance violates Texas state law.
  • (2)--That there should be a personal religious liberty exemption.
  • (3)--How the proposed ordinance violates the 1st Amendment and will therefore lead to litigation if it passes.
