CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Dr. Richard Land, President of Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, http://www.ses.edu), is calling on pastors nationwide to send a message to Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who recently subpoenaed five pastors, demanding their sermon notes and private communication with congregants as these notes related to homosexuality or transgenderism.
“The ideal response to this egregious violation of religious liberty in Houston is for pastors nationwide to send their sermons to Mayor Parker with a return receipt requested,” Land said. “Pastors should also send a copy of their sermons to their own mayor as a warning that ministers of the Gospel will not relinquish their callings or their freedom to speak the truth from Holy Scripture. They should also invite their mayors to come to their worship services.”
