It wasn’t enough to ban singing in churches. Or Sunday services. Now he’s taking an interest in PRIVATE gatherings, too.
It isn’t enough to say that he’s unilaterally dropping the hammer on businesses… again.
Restaurants, wineries, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, zoos, museums and card rooms must suspend their indoor operations, and bars must close altogether.
Thirty counties must also close indoor operations of fitness centers, places of worship, offices for noncritical sectors, personal care services, hair salons, barber shops and malls. —NPR
Now he thinks he has a say in how many people can gather in a private home to pray, too?
This is headed to court!
First, Newsom tried to limit all churches, regardless of their size, to just 10 people total in the building. Then he banned singing and chanting. And on Tuesday, Gov. Newsom issued a new edict via the State’s Public Health Officer dictating that about 80 percent of California’s faithful may not gather for any worship, no matter how small the gathering.
As of July 13, ALL indoor services are banned in 30 counties, even IN-HOME Bible studies and fellowship. More counties may be added by King Newsom. In the other counties, the worship attendance is limited to 25 percent of building capacity or 100 people, whichever is less. But, singing and chanting is also banned, and this includes in-home Bible studies and fellowship meetings.
Yet the very order that bans indoor church and in-home Bible studies specifically ALLOWS PROTESTS.
Under California’s latest directive, you can engage in revolutionary riots tearing businesses and neighborhoods apart, but you cannot have a Bible study with your neighbor or friend in your own home.
Liberty Counsel will be filing suit against Gov. Newsom on behalf of Pastor Samuel Rodriguez, who is president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC). The NHCLC represents 42,000 churches nationwide. Sam is also the senior pastor of churches in Sacramento and Los Angeles. The suit will also include many other churches in California. —LifeNews
