Democrats are working hard to make the most of the coronavirus crisis and exploit the situation to play politics.
But Attorney General William Barr is onto them – and he’s fighting back.
And now William Barr just brought this Democrat coronavirus scheme to the light and Americans are furious.
The Democrats are using coronavirus as an excuse to begin forcing all of their radical agenda items onto Americans and now they have their sights set on Christians.
On Easter Sunday, Kentucky Democrat Governor Andy Beshear sent government goons to use Gestapo tactics on Americans and photograph license plates of those who came out to worship.
He then held the photos to extort American citizens and his own constituents – threatening all who attended with arrest unless they observed a 14-day quarantine.
Meanwhile, in Greenville, Mississippi, the police are doling out $500 tickets to anyone who attended a drive-in Easter Sunday service to avoid breaking social distancing rules – these people never even left their cars.
Now that Democrat State Governors are using the virus as an excuse to turn the police against their own people, William Barr has had enough.
The Department of Justice has issued a Statement of Interest in the Greenville case, citing that the city’s practice of writing tickets to drive-in church goers is discriminatory toward church goers because people can still go get drive-in food.
The statement from the Justice Department reads:
“But even in times of emergency, when reasonable and temporary restrictions are placed on rights, the First Amendment and federal statutory law prohibit discrimination against religious institutions and religious believers. Thus, government may not impose special restrictions on religious activity that do not also apply to similar nonreligious activity. For example, if a government allows movie theaters, restaurants, concert halls, and other comparable places of assembly to remain open and unrestricted, it may not order houses of worship to close, limit their congregation size, or otherwise impede religious gatherings. Religious institutions must not be singled out for special burdens.
…The City of Greenville fined congregants $500 per person for attending these parking lot services – while permitting citizens to attend nearby drive-in restaurants, even with their windows open. The City appears to have thereby singled churches out as the only essential service (as designated by the state of Mississippi) that may not operate despite following all CDC and state recommendations regarding social distancing.”
Americans around the country celebrated Barr’s intervention.
While government may have an interest in public health, they are still required to govern by the Constitution.
William Barr and the Trump administration are working around the clock to manage the coronavirus outbreak and to protect the God-given rights of U.S. citizens – including the freedom to practice religion.
