Pastors from Texas have issued “Toilet Seat Awards” to the senators who voted against the Texas Privacy Act or SB6, which would require individuals to use bathrooms in public buildings matching the sex on their birth certificates.

The legislation was passed by the Texas Senate earlier this month by a vote of 21–10. but it is facing an uphill battle in the House.

In a video published on Monday, a group of pastors known as the “Houston Five,” accompanied by other pastors from across the Greater Houston area, unveiled the “Toilet Seat Awards” for each of the 10 state senators who voted against the controversial bill.

“It is disgusting and offensive to women that one-third of the Texas state senate would vote no on SB 6 in providing protection for women and our daughters in our most private settings,” said Becky Riggle of Grace Church during the presentation of the awards.

House Speaker Joe Straus, who also earned a “Toilet Seat Award,” has publicly expressed his opposition to the bill, claiming that it would be bad for business.
