PETITION: STOP California Governor Newsom From Shutting Down Churches And Houses Of Worship. It’s Our First Amendment Right.
Attorney General William P. Barr, in a letter to Governor Newsom, stated that “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, the government may not impose special restrictions on religious activity that do not also apply to a similar nonreligious activity.’ Simply put, there is no pandemic exception to the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.”
The letter from Assistant Attorney General warned Governor Newsom of unfair treatment of California Churches:
“We are writing to you to raise several civil rights concerns with the treatment of places of worship in Executive Orders N-33-20 and N-60-20 and documents relating to the California Reopening Plan.”
THE BOOK OF ACTS
The Church in the book of Acts was no stranger to governmental displeasure, counter-culture activities, or a willingness to risk all for the advancement of the Kingdom.
We need your signature to show the Governor that we will not tolerate our First Amendment rights to be violated. Please sign below:
