You’ve no doubt heard of the classic Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back. Well, it’s time for a new movie and it’s just starting. It’s called, The Pastors Strike Back.

Fresh off the stunning attack on religious liberty down in Houston where pastors were told by Houston’s Mayor to hand over their sermons, there is now an effort underway by pastors across America to VOLUNTARILY send Bibles and their sermons to the mayor of Houston.

Mike Huckabee (former politician and current talk show host) called for it and so has influential Christian author Eric Metaxas. Metaxas tells The Brody File, “Never in our history has religious freedom been so brazenly defied. A bold red line has been crossed. The Houston mayor’s inexcusable demand to see the sermons of pastors is an outrageous and shocking affront to all Americans and to liberty itself. If the American church does not rise up and stand against this, there is no American church.”

The Brody File obtained a home video of Pastor Brad Atkins of Powdersville First Baptist Church in Greenville, South Carolina sending his sermon off to the Houston mayor. You can watch it here.

Sources tell The Brody File that pastors from Canada, Australia and Germany are also sending the Houston mayor Bibles and sermons. There are also big events planned around what happened in Houston. On Nov. 2, The Family Research council is hosting a huge simulcast event in Houston at a big church.  Guests will include Mike Huckabee, Phil Robertson, the Benham brothers, Dr. Ronnie Floyd and others. In South Carolina, the South Carolina Pastors Alliance is staging an event called, “The Stand” to be held on the statehouse grounds.

Folks, we are beginning to see pastors rise up. Will it last? In the evangelical community, this is at critical mass. Will the flock respond?

  1. Good for them! Pastors are giving the Mayor what she asked for. I only hope they behave with courtesy and a Christian attitude, that demonstrates Christ’s love for sinners. By her sinful lifestyle the Mayor is publicly qualifying to be among those whom Jesus came to save (Matthew 9:12,13). Let’s pray she will respond.
