State of Georgia Allegedly Fires Pastor for His Sermon Notes; and State of Georgia Allegedly now asks for Sermon Notes since he BEGAN Preaching!

LISTEN NOW! It was two years ago when many were shocked to find out that pastors in Houstonwere reportedlybeing forced to hand in their sermons to the city. Today, it is happening again. Another pastor, Dr. Eric Walsh, a lay pastor and former district health director with the Georgia Department of Public Health, was also reportedly required to hand over his sermons to the State of Georgia. In addition, as CBNis reporting, he was also fired because of them. In an interview with both Dr. Walsh and his attorney Jeremy Dys from First Liberty Institute, CBN’s Charlene Arene finds out more about this shocking truth.  
 

According to Dr. Walsh, a week after he was hired at the Georgia DPH, he was asked for sermons that he had preached. Two days later, he was fired. “No government has the right to require a pastor to turn over his sermons. I cannot and will not give up my sermons unless I am forced to do so.” Based on the First Amendment of the US Constitution, he is correct. His attorney, Jeremy Dys ads, “This is an excessive display of the government overreaching its authority and violating the sanctity of the church.”
 
We cannot take situations like this lightly. As Jeremy Dys reiterates, the same events occurred in Houstonafter the words from a “rogue mayor” made the same demands of pastors. This time it is not simply one mayor, but the entire state of Georgia, “demanding that Dr. Walsh provide every sermon that he’s ever provided, all of his sermon notes that he’s ever scribbled, and provide all of the transcripts of the sermons…” as Dys details. When Dr. Walsh was asked what his prayer requests are, he shared “to stand strong and to learn what God wants me to learn out of this experience…” This is simply an outright violation of the First Amendment in every imaginable way.
 
We need to stand in prayer for Pastor Dr. Walsh and for every pastorthat they would not cower down in situations such as this. It is important that we pay attention to situationssuch as these and the Church use its voice as our freedoms allows us to do. See the full interview to hear the full statements and so much more.
