Earlier this week Hair Balls talked to Pastor David Grisham, a man of the cloth who was proclaiming the utterly reasonable, open-hearted and accepting gospel that the world should boycott Houston because we have a gay mayor. Oh, and there's a Planned Parenthood outlet mall here, or something.
Sadly, some Houstonians are a little more closed-minded than the good Pastor Grisham.
Boycott Boycott Houston has hit the Faceybooks, courtesy of Ed De La Garza, who is obviously on the express train to Hell.
"Personally, I like the fact Houston is open-minded. You should too," he says. "But we should remember that in the spirit of tolerance, we should understand these people. Understand that they're close-minded bigots."
The group describes itself this way:
Committed to showing Houston isn't as backwards as a lot of other places in the state. We are a blue island surrounded by a sea of red. Houstonians are progressive. Deal with it.
In a short time, more than 180 have joined up.
They, too, are all no doubt going to hell, to sit among baby corpses and be forced into the homosexual agenda.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
