Texas pastors under fire for their biblical views are being encouraged by a well-known Southern Baptist.

“If we’re all willing to go to jail, none of us will have to,” Richard Land says of the five Houston pastors whose sermons have been subpoenaed as part of a lawsuit against the city.

“We all need to stand with these preachers,” Land tells OneNewsNow. “I know some of those guys and they’re not going to back up.”

Land is currently the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary after serving as longtime president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, an arm of the Southern Baptist Convention.

A petition drive supported by many Houston pastors gained enough signatures to place the issue on an election ballot but city officials disqualified them based on a technicality. A lawsuit was then filed against the City of Houston, which is now demanding access to pastors’ sermons and many more materials as part of the discovery process in the court case.

Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the pastors, has stated the five targeted pastors are not plaintiffs in the court case and is asking to court to quash the subpoena.
