Pastor Supports Freedom Of Religion, Slams Islam


Pastor Glynn Stone invited Republican Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas and Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas to speak at the Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview, Texas, on July 3.

According to the Longview News-Journal, Abbott and Gohmert were at the church to speak about religious freedom.

"We have remained one nation under God," Abbott said.

Abbott added that Christians were being attacked by secularists.

"Now, more than ever, we need representatives who base their decisions on moral clarity rather than political correctness," Abbott said. "We all know that we live in the greatest country in the world, but we must realize the ways in which our country is becoming broken."

"We must never be shaken," Abbott added. "America must never be shaken. As long as we build our house on the fortress of God, America will never be shaken."

Gohmert told churchgoers that there were great religious awakenings in the 18th and 19th centuries in the U.S. but not in the 20th or 21st centuries.

"Obama said we weren't a Christian nation," Gohmert said. "Well, he's right. We were."

Stone wrote an open letter to East Texas Christians in an ad in the Longview News-Journal on Feb. 6, 2015, which was reprinted on his church's website.

In that letter, Stone wrote about how the City of Longview’s Unity and Diversity Committee held a luncheon where there was "an opening prayer to the Muslim god Allah and a closing prayer to the one true God." According to him, because of these differing prayers, the luncheon attendees could not "achieve the unity that was strived for that day."

"Muslim leaders are being asked to lead public prayers at sporting events, local rodeos and other public gatherings," Stone added.

Stone went on to write about how he also does opening and closing Christian prayers at public events but added that the "freedom to pray at such events is an expression of my worship to the one and only true God. While every American can worship in private, every American should not be forced to take part in just any worship in the public spectrum, especially when such worship is of a false religion."

After allegedly referring to Islam as a "false religion," Stone later added: "Our freedom of speech and freedom of religion are eroding under the most anti-Christian tenor America has ever experienced. If exercising our muscles prevents atrophy, then exercising our freedoms must be effective in retaining those freedoms. We must speak up!"

Stone insisted that American freedoms are "being hijacked from my son's coming generation. These freedoms are more at risk today than in the wake of our nation's civil war."
