Justice Department backs church in dispute over city ban on drive-in services

The DOJ signaled its support for a Mississippi church whose members were fined for attending drive-in services in defiance of a stay-at-home order, stating in a court filing that it ’strongly suggests that the city’s actions target religious conduct’. Temple Baptist Church in Greenville in a lawsuit said congregants were fined $500 for attending a service in their cars in the church’s parking.

I hate it how leftists somehow think tha the constitution somehow doesn’t apply during a pandemic. First admendment to the bill of rights: Right to assemble. Right of religious expression. Government shouldn’t be picking and choosing when it comes to liberty.

The restriction of movement through public and private spaces by the government without trial is morally, ideally and constitutionally wrong and should not be tolerated.

"god" should intervene to make sure the sheeple can still congregate, because "god" loves entertaining at least once per week and feels lonely without guests to host for.

Do we really need to leave our house to pray? People should stop being silly and just wait for the time to be auspicious. I doubt government is using the pandemia as an excuse to prosecute any religious faith.

Once they get the vaccine for the Coronavirus sorted perhaps they can jiffy one up to prevent religious delusion.
