Shouldn't religious freedom cover our Pastors too ?? A little UNCONSTITUTIONAL ?? [forgot for a moment, I thought the constitution MEANT something ]

Ted Cruz blasts mayor for demanding sermons This is wrong. It's unbefitting of Texans, and it's un-American'              
Houston Mayor Annise Parker
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a possible GOP presidential candidate in 2016, is blasting Houston Mayor Annise Parker for taking legal action to obtain from a group of local pastors copies of sermons that have anything to do with homosexuality, gender identity or the mayor.
As WND reported Monday, the subpoena came in the city’s legal defense of a “non-discrimination” measure that allows “gender-confused” people to use public restrooms designated for the opposite sex.
In a statement Wednesday, Cruz said he was proud “to stand with the pastors.”
“Religious liberty is the very first protection in the Bill of Rights, the foundation of all our liberties,” he said. “The city of Houston’s subpoenas demanding that pastors provide the government with copies of their sermons is both shocking and shameful.”
The subpoenas were issued to five pastors after opponents of the ordinance filed a lawsuit. The pastors were part of a coalition of Houston-area churches that opposed the law, but they were not part of the lawsuit.
Representing the pastors, the Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a motion to quash the city’s demands to see the sermons, arguing the pastors are not party to the suit.
Parker, a lesbian, has admitted the anti-discrimination ordinance is “all about” her and her lifestyle.
