DALLAS -- The LGBT organization, Resource Center, is asking the City of Dallas and DPD to break ties with Pastor Robert Jeffress and the First Baptist Church of Dallas.

Pastor Jeffress recently made waves for this controversial comment...

"Just because some hairy-legged man  feels confused about his gender, doesn't mean he gets to come in and shower with my daughter in a shower room," Pastor Jeffress said.

"They've chosen to partner with an organization whose leader says the most provocative stuff against all sorts of groups -- the Catholic church, the Mormons, Islam, women, the LGBT community," said Rafael McDonnell of the Resource Center. "Is that who you want to be in business with?"

Just last month, Pastor Jefress "backed the blue," offering to give free counseling to police officers and free camp scholarships to their kids. The pastor says it's a one-way relationship and police don't have to accept anything if they don't want to.

NewsFix reached out to Mayor Mike Rawlings Tuesday to find out where the city stands when it comes to this outspoken pastor, but so far, the mayor isn't talking.
