TAYLOR COUNTY, Texas — A Texas woman claims she was told that her “Vote the Bible” T-shirt may be offensive and was forced to cover up when she went to vote early at the City Hall in Taylor County, Texas last week, reported.

Attorney Jonathan Seinz, the president of Texas Values, says Kay Hill was ‘targeted because of her religious beliefs.’

He says he’s prepared to defend Hill because he believes she was asked to give up her religious freedom in order to vote.

“This is obviously a religious free expression and no one should be put in a position having to choose religious freedom over deciding to vote,” he said.

According to Texas law, a person cannot suggest how another person should vote by word, sign or gesture while in a polling place.

Williamson County said its poll volunteers were following state election laws, and besides there’s only one word on that shirt that they have a problem with.

“The shirt did say vote so it did have to do with voting,” said Williamson County Public Affairs Director Connie Watson.

Seinz argues that Hill’s shirt did none of that.

“Nothing says that you can’t have a shirt that says vote the Bible. The last time I checked Republicans and Democrats, it’s not a partisan issue on the bible,” Seinz said.
