Houston Astros Lance Berkman Fights Transgender Proposition

Today, the LGBT community are some of the last opponents you want to go up against. They're tough, and they come backed with Amerca's PC-enforcement: the liberal media and many celebrities.

But not this celebrity. Former Houston Astros great, Lance Berkman, is boldly taking on Houston's first openly-gay mayor, Annise Parker, who is pushing to pass HERO (Houston Equal Rights Ordinance), a bill that would allow people to use the public facility of their choice--not of their birth-assigned gender.

Berkman just released this ad, urging citizens to vote against the proposition this November, reports Fox News.

“I played professional baseball for 15 years, but my family is more important,” Berkman says in the ad. “My wife and I have four daughters. Proposition 1 would allow troubled men who claim to be women to enter women’s bathrooms, showers and locker rooms. It’s better to prevent this danger by closing women’s restrooms to men, rather than waiting for a crime to happen. Join me to stop the violation of privacy and discrimination against women.

“Vote ‘No’ on Proposition 1. No men in women’s bathrooms. No boys in girls’ showers or locker rooms.”

Mayor Parker is obviously not happy about this and has taken to using her Twitter to publicly slam Berkman.

You may be familiar with Parker as the one who tried to subpoena pastors' sermons to censor any anti-homosexuality preaching last year. Fortunately, she was curbed by then-Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, who called it “a direct assault on the religious liberty guaranteed by the First Amendment.”

Many are standing with Berkman, including Franklin Graham, who posted this on his Facebook page:
