Conservative lobbyists in Texas released an anti-LGBTQ political ad.

The ad was produced by the antigay group Faith Family Freedom Fund and is in response to Houston’s Proposition 1, a non-discrimination ordinance that would ban employment and housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, two criteria not currently covered by federal anti-discrimination laws.

“If Proposition 1 passes, you could be fined up to $5,000 for declining to participate in a same-sex wedding or simply objecting to a man using a woman’s bathroom,” the ad inaccurately declares.

Actually, the new legislation will of course exempt religious institutions and organizations.

The ad continues: “Don’t allow the government to flush your money or religious liberties … No person should be punished by the government because of their beliefs.”
