Gay Agenda Can’t Gag Miami Pastor’s Sermons

Charisma News last week reported that Miami Pastor Jack Hakimian was in danger of losing his church lease because he boldly preached that homosexuality is a sin.
Now, his landlord is backing down in the face of reminders about the First Amendment.
Miami-Dade County School Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho had threated to revoke the lease from Impact Miami Church, which rents from a local high school. The superintendent planned to review the lease following one of Hakimian’s sermon that called out the intolerance of those who espouse the gay agenda.
What caused the superintendent to change his mind? Liberty Counsel sent a letter on Hakimian’s behalf stating that any adverse action against the pastor for his speech would violate the First Amendment.
“In recent days we have seen stepped-up attacks against free speech,” says Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel. “It is outrageous that a public school superintendent could think he has the right to threaten revocation of a lease because of what the pastor preaches in the pulpit. No public official is above the law. The First Amendment stands as a bulwark against homo-fascism.”
