"Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, which is pastored by influential theologian and author John MacArthur, announced Friday that it would continue holding in-person services, saying state mandates restricting worship are an overstep of government authority and thus they have no duty to follow them."

Hallelujah!

Standing up for the 1st amendment even if they are selling snake oil and indulgences.

Wish more church leaders had his kind of balls.
Good luck getting police officers to go enforce Gruesome’s ban on churches.
If I were a police officer, I would call in sick on Sunday instead of being forced to enter a church and start arresting parishioners. Many of the police are also believers, so there’s no way that they would participate in such an action.

But church leaders have been almost uniformly pussies about this.

That's because they were able to feast on free PPP money. Now that the free money from the federal government is used up, they have to hit up the parishioners for cash. So there may have been laws that separate church and state broken to get the free $, but nobody really believes in silly things like laws and constitutions anymore anyway.

Wow - another 5,000 held service on the beach in San Diego. I think America is sick and tired of the COVID nonsense.

Great surf spot too.

Happy to see some sensible people in my neck of the woods.

Here's an image of a PACKED church - this was John Macarthur's first service back last weekend in Van Nuys, CA.

Note: local PD threatened to shut off power if they held service, but appears Macarthur called their bluff.
