The free speech rights and Christian beliefs of Pastor Brandon Huber of the Missoula region are under attack. Now the locals are planning a “Let’s Go Brandon” rally to defend Pastor Brandon.
I spoke with Pastor Brandon’s attorney, Matthew Monforton, on Monday’s “Montana Talks” radio show. The pastor also works part-time as a real estate agent in Missoula and is targeted for his Christian beliefs by the Missoula Organization of Realtors.
Monforton says the problem comes down to a simple question: “Is the Bible hate speech?” Because that’s what Missoula’s real estate agents claim. Monforton continued:
As your listeners may know, the National Association of REALTORS recently passed a hate speech provision that applies to all real estate agents, and it applies 24/7, not just when they do the job.
So what exactly does the complaint against Huber allege was “hate speech?”
The “hate speech” was a letter Pastor Brandon distributed to his congregation explaining his actions. He basically said, look, we’ve partnered with the Missoula Food Bank. They want to distribute this, this LGBTQ pride flyer. This goes against our biblical doctrine, and therefore we will be making free lunches on our own. That’s it. It was the most polite and innocuous letter you could imagine.
Monforton tells us that local supporters are planning a âLet’s Go Brandonâ rally in support of Pastor Brandon Huber on November 17 at 6:30 pm at the Clinton Community Church.
Monforton: We need everyone on the bridge here. And it’s at some point, if we don’t resist this, that the awakened LGBT mafia will come after all of us.
By the way, the Missoula Organization of Realtors told The Missoulian that they had no comment “at the moment”.
