Houston Pastors Stand with Dr. Ed Young’s Freedom of the Pulpit

Houston, TX – Various and primarily ultraliberal groups have criticized and misrepresented a recent sermon by Dr. Ed Young, senior pastor of Second Baptist Church in Houston that included strong language addressing the massive national crisis caused by the Biden administration refusing to enforce laws protecting our national borders.  

The interdenominational, multi-ethnic coalition of Houston area pastors of which Dr. Young is a part issued a response to the criticisms that even call for Dr. Young’s resignation.

“It is clear that those including local and national media who are mischaracterizing Dr. Young’s sermon around specific words are doing so intentionally for their “open borders” agenda,” asserted Houston Area Pastor Council. “For those who care to, and all concerned should do so, we urge them to actually listen to his entire sermon so the context is clear.  

He was addressing the actual human catastrophe of violent criminals, known terrorists, lethal narcotics, sex slavery and more pouring into this nation because of the intentional inaction by our President and DHS Secretary,” HAPC added.

The pastors also challenged the application by critics of his use of the term’s “undesirables” and “garbage” to all illegal immigrants coming across the southern border. 

“The typical knee jerk by the radical Left to someone exposing the actual carnage and chaos of their actions is to deflect and twist words entirely out of context.  It is because of the ongoing and now escalating lawlessness that spans decades of illegal immigration, that in 2010 our pastors drafted and posted thePastors Declaration on Border Security and Immigration Reform,” they added.

They concluded by defending the God-given, constitutionally-protected freedom of church pulpits to speak freely regardless of the cultural popularity of any message.  Most importantly we stand with Dr. Young and all our pastors’ inviolable freedom to preach as God directs them, particularly on critical issues of the day that are impacting the very people we are called to reach, minister to and equip.”
