An international nonprofit litigation organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom has some advice for the Miami-Dade school district: Donâ€™t go there.
The advice comes from Liberty Counsel, which today said it had sent a letter to the superintendent stating that any effort to rescind a facilities usage lease with a church because of the pastorâ€™s sermon on homosexuality would be a violation of the First Amendment.
The issue arose when Impact Miami Church Pastor Jack Hakimian preached on the biblical position on homosexuality: Itâ€™s a sin.
The Miami-Dade County Public Schools then announced it was â€śreviewingâ€ť its lease with the church....
And...the pastor also attacked bullying, so the church wasn't running counter to the school's policies. Of course this should be a given, but the pastor specifically mentioned that in his sermon, so this school is skating on thin ice. Read the article It explains the situation.
As I am not a part of Pastor Jack's congregation, I don't know what he is all about. Although, according to the statement, "homosexuality is a sin", I do know that it is biblical and commend this pastor for speaking God's truth on that matter. I thank God for those that stand in the gap and are human instruments for God's word.
