WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) - Kay Hill wanted to vote early but ran into trouble at the Taylor City Hall when election officials told her her T-shirt was offensive.
Imprinted on its front were the words "Vote the Bible."
"It only says 'Vote the Bible' -- it doesn't say vote Democrat or Republican," Hill explained to one election judge.
Eventually another official let Hill wear her sweater jacket to cover up the offending words.
"I felt embarrassed, humiliated and offended myself," she said on Friday.
She and the nonprofit group Texas Values demanded an apology, but they say Williamson County officials refused.
"You can't ban someone's religious expression because you think it's offensive. That's the problem, that's the standard they are using," said Jonathan Saenz, president of Texas Values.
Hill filed a formal complaint with the Texas Secretary of State's office.
Saenz says they want a clear ruling on the law.
"The Vote the Bible shirt is not asking to support one candidate or another or a ballot proposition. We think the law is clear in that regard," Saenz said.
Hill explains she did not want to make a fuss.
"I felt I had to do the right thing, to come out with this," she said. "It's not partisan to have 'Bible' on your shirt. We all as Christians need to step up and do the right thing."
