I think of permitting abortion and disallowing safely celebrated Mass (as in Virginia) as a “big flood”.
On Palm Sunday, Lighthouse Fellowship had conducted a worship service with 16 people practicing social distancing in a facility that seats more than 200.
Afterwards, “two police officers entered the church and issued Pastor Wilson a summons and informed him that if he had service on Easter, and if more than ten people attended, everyone would receive the same summons.”
“Because the executive orders prohibit Lighthouse’s sixteen-person, socially distanced gathering in a 225-seat church but allow similar secular conduct, such as a gathering of 16 lawyers in a large law firm conference room, the governor’s executive orders may constitute a violation of the church’s constitutional rights to the free exercise of religion,” the DOJ stated.
“The Commonwealth of Virginia has offered no good reason for refusing to trust congregants who promise to use care in worship in the same way it trusts accountants, lawyers, and other workers to do the same,” he pointed out.
We’re fortunate to have William Barr on our side, fighting against anti-Christian bigotry.
