COVID Tyranny Squashes Freedom of Religion - How Churches are Fighting Back!

Guest host Adam McManus​ talked about COVID Tyranny over the churches with Daniel Schmid, Senior Litigation Attorney with Liberty Counsel​. The Christian legal group filed lawsuits​ on behalf of churches in Florida, Illinois, Colorado, and California.

In Florida, Liberty Counsel defended Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne of the River at Tampa Bay Church who was arrested at his home on March 30th for daring to hold a church service on Sunday, March 29th.  Listen to the outrageous remarks by Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister and the bold remarks of Pastor Howard-Browne following his arrest.

In Colorado, Democratic Attorney General Philip Weiser tried to shut down the Andrew Wommack Ministries conference on July 3rd.  Ironically, Democratic Governor Jared Polis permitted thousands to gather in mass protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, but mandated that Christians could not gather in churches. Liberty Counsel Founder Mat Staver said, “There is neither a pandemic pause button to the Constitution nor an exception for religious gatherings.”

In Illinois, Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker’s overreaching executive COVID orders prompted Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on July 13th to dispatch police officers to shut down the parking lots and tow the cars of Christians attending Sunday services at Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church.  Worse yet, they have been threatening to bulldoze churches which insist on meeting for in-person for services.  After Liberty Counsel went to the Supreme Court asking for an injunction, Gov. Pritzker decided that his 10-person maximum restriction was indefensible.

And in California, Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom issued a COVID order, shutting down in-person worship and home Bible studies.  Plus, the City of Pasadena’s Chief Asst. City Prosecutor sent a threatening letter to Harvest Rock Church, stating, “Each day in violation is a separate violation and carries with it punishment up to one year in jail and a fine for each violation. … Your compliance with these Orders is not discretionary, but mandatory. Any violations in the future will subject you … to potential closures of your Church.”

If your church needs free representation involving COVID Tyranny, call Liberty Counsel at (407) 875-1776 or request legal help on-line​.
