Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor, has called on pastors from across the country to send Houston Mayor Annise Parker Bibles and sermons in a display of support for the Houston pastors who received subpoenas for their sermons last week.
"It ought to make you mad that the mayor thinks she can turn in her pastors. And so I got an idea," Huckabee said on his Fox News show. "If she wants a sermon, here is my suggestion. I would like to ask every pastor in America, not only the ones in Houston, to send her your sermons and go ahead. Obviously she could use a few. And everybody watching the show ought to send her a Bible."
"I hope she gets thousands and thousands of sermons and Bibles," Huckabee said.
Mayor Parker said that she was unaware that the pastors’ sermons had been subpoenaed by the city; however, Dave Welch, executive director of the Houston area U.S. Pastor Council said Parker made the decision herself.
The Christian Post reports that the City of Houston removed the reference to sermons in the subpoenas on Friday (Oct. 17).
