“A Pastor’s Pit”
Judge Roy Sparkman
The United States is threatening religious liberty. Pastor Preston and his followers are faced with legal challenges for preaching from the Bible.
The “Pastor’s Pit” exposes the danger to religious liberty that all religions take as a given, and the critical role that the U.S. Supreme Court nominations and presidential elections play in preserving the rights of all citizens. How is it possible for a pastor to be indicted and tried on the “crime of preaching from Scripture?” Will the courts sentence him to prison, or preserve his constitutional rights?
