The Westside Unitarian Universalist Faith Community in Fort Worth has amplified a call to action encouraging LGBTQ North Texans and their allies to email letters urging the landlord of the Watauga building now housing Stedfast Baptist Church to evict the church because of “the bigoted speech and actions of the preachers and church attendees,” according to an email provided Wednesday, July 13, to Dallas Voice.

The email from Westside UU notes that a group called No Hate in Texas show up outside the church’s facilities at 6900 Denton Highway in Watauga at every Stedfast service to protest.

That group, the email said, is “asking that the landlord of the rented building evict the church for the bigoted speech and actions of the preachers and church attendees.” That group, originally called No Hate in Hurst, staged regular protests outside the church’s previous location in Hurst, and those protests were primarily responsible for convincing the landlord at that location to file suit last fall to evict Stedfast.
