The pastor who came under fire last year for his remarks at the Valentine’s Day ceremonies at the Bexar County Courthouse will be allowed to perform marriages again this year.
Last Valentine’s Day, a video recording captured his not so loving comments to same-sex couples who showed up to the midnight ceremony. In the recording, he can be heard saying, "If people are here just trying to be repulsive and offensive to people, you'll have to deal with God one of these days after this."
As part of the Bexar County Family Justice Center's annual fundraiser, the Woodlawn Theater is donating all proceeds from it's latest show, Neil Simon's "Chapter 2," to help victims of domestic violence.
