"Knowing The Truth" with Pastor Kevin Boling is a live, call-in radio program providing Doctrinal Dialog, Cultural Commentary and Insightful Interviews with some of today's foremost Christian authors and leaders.
Dr. Joel C. Hunter, the senior pastor of the 15,000 member Northland Church, recently partnered with Atif Fareed, Former Chair of CAIR FL (Council on Islamic-American Relations). The evangelical pastor asked Fareed to read his statement of opposition in Florida Legislature. His statement opposed the passage of a SB 58 - a bill that would block the use of Sharia Law in Florida Court Cases.
Atif Fareed told the committee:
"But I want to read something very important to you today. I am a Muslim, but a senior pastor of an evangelical church, the Northland Church, Dr. Joel C. Hunter, he sent me an email yesterday afternoon and he wanted me to read this to you. And this is how his letter goes exactly word by word:
To my state senators: As a pastor of one of the largest churches in Florida I believe Senate Bill 58 will do more harm than good if enacted. Its effect will be to increase bias rather than protection. It seems to me to be a cure without a disease. Existing law and judicial precedent have proved sufficient to deal with any concerns addressed by this proposed law. Having confidence in both our constitution and the character of our judicial process I agree with the America Bar Association, the Anti-Defamation League and the American Civil Liberties Union that this law and House Bill 351 will be detrimental rather than the good intended. As a conservative evangelical Christian it is unusual for me to side with the ACLU but I think objecting to unnecessary law is a conservative principle as well as a libertarian one. In deed not making laws unless they are absolutely necessary is at the core of our character as a country. Thank you for considering my views. Dr. Joel C. Hunter, Senior Pastor Northland Church.'"
