One of the bill’s original co-authors and supporters was Scott Sanford, a Republican representative who also serves as an executive pastor with Cottonwood Creek Church, a Southern Baptist congregation in Allen, Texas…

“It’s simply that the community is held together by a lot of different institutions and none are more critical than places of worship and the ministries they provide. When you need us the most is sometimes when outsiders may think it would be a good time to close them.” [-Sanford]

The amendment passed with 62% of the vote. 

I’m glad to have voted for it.
