A Presbyterian pastor on the Delaware coast is drawing a line in the sand on the beach this week in the vacation community of Lewes (pronounced "Lewis") to celebrate freedom, which was the original point of the Fourth of July.
A Delaware pastor whose hopes to hold a Rehoboth Beach worship service were dashed by a denied government permit said that's lunacy — the town was founded on Christian principles.
"We believe that we do have the liberty to proclaim the gospel," Mr. Dekker said in the Delmarva Now article. "This whole concept of being silent and backing away, it doesn't fit."
"There is a plaque right there [on the beach] that talks about the community being established as a permanent Christian camp ... established to promote Christianity," he said on the Fox program. "So it seems very ironic our permit was denied."
