The leader of Texas Values, whose wife famously left him for another woman, has his hand out again, this time to spread the news about an antigay law that's already been enacted.

Jonathan Saenz, the Austin attorney who runs right-wing group Texas Values, has launched a new fundraising campaign to educate clergy across Texas about a law that's been on the books since June and has received plenty of attention in the media.

The Pastor Protection Act, which Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law June 11, allows clergy to refuse to host or perform same-sex weddings without fear of government penalties and/or private lawsuits -- a right they are already guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, by the way. It goes into effect Tuesday.

Saenz believes word of this law, reported by virtually every major news outlet across the Lone Star State, needs to be better communicated, reports Towleroad. And that, of course, requires money.

Saenz, in an email rife with errors, this week asked supporters to donate $25,000 so he can help "the leaders of the resistancee."

"America today is occupied territory. The enemies of religious freedom occupy every power center from government to academia. Everyone except its spiritual core. Thank God, that power isn't centered in Washington. It flows from the faith and values of its people, from a thousand churches and faith-filled homes across Texas and beyond.

"That makes our pastors the Leaders of the Resistancee.

"How does an invading army break the will of an occupied people? First, it identifies its Resistance Leaders. Next, it isolates and demoralizes them, making them think they're alone and powerless. Then it breaks them -- before the people can rally to their defense.

"This is why your pastor is truly in the cross-hairs. Armed with not only the recent egregious Supreme Court same-sex 'marriage' decision but a host of lower-court rulings and guidelines, the pro-homosexual left is scouring Texas --America's last stronghold of resistance -- seeking "weakest link" communities and churches for a pre-emptive strike."

Saenz has previously made headlines not only for his opposition to marriage equality but for the fact that his wife, Corrine, left him for another woman in 2011. He also has made the infamous accusation that LGBT activists want to create "concentration camps" to punish bakers who refuse to prepare wedding cakes for same-sex couples.
