State demands pastor turn over sermons and his Bible! Outrage ensues ...
What if they did this to a Muslim Imam?
10-26-16, Charisama -- The State of Georgia issued a legal
demand that Dr. Eric Walsh, a [black] Seventh Day Adventist lay pastor, hand over his sermons, sermon notes and all
pastoral documentation, including his Bible. -- He has refused to comply.
Tony Perkins of Family Research Council said: "This is something that I would have expected to see in a communist country, not America. The pulpit is to be governed only by the Word of God. Government scrutiny of speech in the pulpit is unconstitutional and unconscionable. We call on Gov. Deal to correct this egregious over-reach of the state into church affairs."
In 2014 Walsh was fired after Georgia officials learned of his faith. Documents released by First Liberty include emails showing that Georgia officials assigned employees to examine his sermons on YouTube—sermons dealing with common Christian themes including creation, homosexuality, compassion, spiritual growth, the family and Christian living. He was fired after this examination.
[Note: I can only surmise that Eric's being attacked for his views on creation [not evolution] and man/woman marriage as Georgia has not responded to requests for explanation.] Here is a video of one of his sermons from 2014: www.youtube.com/watch?v=DODdRUN5YKs&feature=youtu.be
