Houston Pastor Quotes Cap. Parker: “If They Want War, Let It Begin Here!”

PolitiChicks.comWith churches under attack, one Houston pastor is fighting back.

This Thursday I watched a very inspiring video of Pastor Randy White preaching to his congregation at the First Baptist Church in Katy, Texas, a community outside of Houston.

In a recent PolitiChicks article, I wrote about Houston’s first lesbian mayor, Annise Parker, who demanded that all pastors in the city turn over their sermons regarding anything about homosexuals or gender identity. If they refused they might be charged with Contempt of Court.

Pastor White stepped up to the plate in response to the mayor with his sermon, “The Freedom of the Pulpit: The Essential Right.” He begins by giving a mini history lesson of our Founding Fathers and our country being founded upon Judeo-Christian principles of faith, then stands firm as he addresses the mayor’s bizarre request—an infringement upon our Constitution’s First Amendment.

A banner on his church’s website reads: “Attention Mayor Annise Parker: Never, Never, Never.”

There are dozens of ‘golden nuggets’ in Pastor White’s sermon regarding how intent our government is to take away many of our freedoms—and Christianity is at the top of the list.

Please watch this video. It will inspire you to keep fighting for America—and fighting to keep our religious freedoms. I am thankful for the other three other pastors who are preaching the same theme as Pastor White, but let’s hope there are many more just like them: Pastor Jack Martin of Praise Assembly of God in Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida; Pastor Cary Gordon of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, Iowa; and Pastor Jim Garlow of Skyline Church in San Diego.

Pastor White wraps up his sermon by saying, “The freedom of this pulpit is not a privilege granted by the U.S. Government. The freedom of this pulpit is granted unto God.” He ends with a quote by Captain John Parker, who said on April 19, 1775 in Lexington: “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon. But if they want to have a war let it begin here.”
