Democrat governors across the country are pressing their thumbs down on citizens to seize power during the coronavirus pandemic.
And now all hell is breaking loose.
And Democrats are about to face one Supreme Court case that will end in one giant defeat.
Andrew Cuomo took a jab at religion at his press conference on Monday.
“The number is down because we brought the number down,” he told reporters. “God did not do that. Faith did not do that. Destiny did not do that.”
This is after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio threatened to permanently shut down any churches or synagogues who met during the coronavirus crisis.
While social distancing is important at the moment, the Democrats seem to be singling out Christians and Jewish people.
The Democrat Party is increasingly being taken over by the Marxist philosophy which holds that religion is a tool for the upper classes to control the poor and “the opium of the people.”
Given their philosophy, the religious should be concerned that Democrats are not motivated by trying to stop the spread of the virus but are hostile toward religion.
Members of Temple Baptist Church were given $500 tickets for attending a drive-in service where the members maintained social distancing by staying inside their cars.
The police handing out tickets put them more at risk than the worshipping did.
Now they are asking the courts to find the Democrat Mayor’s ban unconstitutional with the help of Alliance Defending Freedom.
The Alliance Defending Freedom announced the lawsuit, saying:
Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys representing Greenville’s Temple Baptist Church filed suit in federal district court Friday to challenge Mayor Errick Simmons’ April 7 executive order that bans drive-in church services until the Mississippi governor lifts a statewide shelter-in-place order prompted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The governor’s order includes no such ban and identifies churches as an “essential business or operation.”
The lawsuit came about after members of Temple Baptist Church drove to the church’s parking lot on Wednesday night and stayed in their cars, as the church instructed, with their windows rolled up while listening to Pastor Arthur Scott preach a sermon over a low-power FM radio frequency from a microphone inside the empty church building. Despite the fact that no one left their cars, which numbered fewer than 20, eight uniformed police officers arrived at the service and issued tickets of $500 per person for violating the mayor’s ban, which does not apply to drive-in restaurants like the nearby Sonic Drive-In that reportedly often has more cars present than at Temple Baptist’s drive-in services.
Simmons’ ban “orders all church buildings closed for in person and drive in church services, until the State of Mississippi’s Shelter In Place Executive Order No. 1466 is lifted by Governor Tate Reeves.” Reeves’ order includes no such ban, and he made clear at a press conference prior to issuing the order that municipalities may use their local emergency power in response to COVID-19 so long as it “does not directly conflict with allowing for what the state order says.”
Attorney General Bill Barr said that the Justice Department has filed a memo in support of the Mississippi church as they were singled out.
These cases are likely to be appealed, and given the urgent need to resolve the questions about governments’ authority in a pandemic – questions that have never really been settled – the Supreme Court could take up these cases.
And given the current makeup of the court, conservatives believe a majority of justices could step in to establish more ground rules and protection for vital rights such as the free exercise of religion.
While Americans should listen to the social distancing measures the authorities have imposed, it is also important to make sure that these are temporary measures and the radical left doesn’t use this chance to make their powers over religion permanent.
