While in Houston filming his reality TV show and making other stops, “Caitlyn” Jenner and members of his film crew attended two megachurches whose pastors had been very vocal against Houston’s proposed “bathroom ordinance.” Rev. Dave Welch of the US Pastor Council called the events at the Christmas services, “photo ops.”

Jenner and members of his TV crew attended a Christmas show for children at a megachurch, Houston’s Second Baptist Church’s location on Woodway.

After the show, Jenner spoke and prayed with Baptist minister, Dr. Ed Young, who was a vocal opponent of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO). Cameras recorded their time together.

Ed Young, Jr. posted a photo and commented on Twitter, “Dad always taught me to love and pray for everyone. Here he is praying with @Caitlyn_Jenner at tonight’s service.” The pastor’s son has a large church of his own located in Grapevine, Texas, and other Texas cities.

The younger pastor also tweeted, “Dad and @Caitlyn_Jenner had a great conversation and prayer after last night’s service. #grace”

This Tweet also included a photo.

Breitbart Texas spoke with Senior Pastor Garrett Booth of Grace Church Houston who confirmed that Jenner also attended this week’s family Christmas service at the church.

Breitbart Texas reported in May of 2014 that a group of Houston pastors and conservative activists joined forces at a “Stand for Our Women and Children Rally” held at Grace Church. The crowds cheered when pastors from black, Hispanic, white, and Vietnamese churches walked to the front of the sanctuary down the center aisle in a show of unity.Pastor Steve Riggle, founding senior pastor at Grace Church, was very active in speaking against the ordinance.

Moreover, when Mayor Annise Parker and the City of Houston subpoenaed pastors, their sermon notes, and communications with congregants during the litigation over the HERO proposition going to Houston voters, Grace Church’s Steve Riggle said, “We’re not afraid of this bully. This is an attempt to chill pastors from speaking to the cultural issues of the day. The mayor would like to silence our voice. She’s a bully.”

Rev. Dave Welch, Executive Director of US Pastor Council told Breitbart Texas, “The photo ops conducted by Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner in at least two Houston megachurches who were very active in defeating Mayor Parker’s Bathroom Ordinance, were transparent and prove that the battle for decency, freedom and faith is far from over. The tragic stories of Mr. Jenner and those like him who have become confused about how God designed them as male or female, call for our compassion to help heal them, and our determination to never let their plight be our new normal.”
