quote: Churches across San Antonio are expressing outrage over a proposed anti-discrimination law that would protect LGBT workers but would not provide a religious exemption and would effectively prohibit anyone who opposes homosexuality from holding public office or getting a city contract.
quote: Critics argue that the ordinance could ban Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin from serving on the city council. They also believe the ordinance would also ban the city from doing business with anyone who fails to espouse politically correct views and businesses run by people of faith would be subject to criminal penalties if they refused to provide services that conflict with their religious beliefs related to homosexuality.

the government must also not do anything that would establish a religion or non religion.
aka saying that christians are bared from serving on city council.
Also many will argue that because the constitution protects freedom of religion and the free practice of religion than any government law that either prohibits someone from practicing their faith fully or forcing them to do something that is contrary to their deeply held beliefs is also unconstitutional.

glad to see we agree
and I won't bring up the persecution of the Church at-least in this country. There are some clear parts of the world that Christians are persecuted by radical muslims but that doesn't fit into this topic.
