The following is a letter to Mayor Wright, mayor of Hickory, NC where two soulwinners were arrested on July 4th for peacefully handing out tracts in a public area during a City Event called "Hickory Live".
Edmund Burke said, ‘The only thing necessary for the triumph [of evil] is for good men to do nothing.’
Dear Mayor Wright,
I am a Pastor in Newark, Delaware that has heard of your town’s terrible decision to arrest Jesse and Matthew Boyd. It is interesting that you use the phrase “we have to keep the peace” when interviewed by Richard Gould. On the first Christmas Morning, the Angels said that Jesus coming was “Peace on Earth”. The Boyd’s were bringing Peace to Hickory Alive.
You would have imprisoned the Apostle Paul for breaking the peace, wouldn’t you?
Please know that our church will be praying against you and Hickory until you apologize and totally exonerate the Boyd Brothers. This situation could impact the wonderful freedoms of evangelizing Christians everywhere. Please follow the heart of your own father and do the right thing for America and the courageous Boyd brothers.
