Evangelist Joshua Feuerstein, Back on Facebook, Mocks People Wearing Face Masks

Christian evangelist and hate-preacher Joshua Feuerstein was temporarily banned from Facebook but made his unceremonious return this week, cranking out a fresh dose of insanity to his 2.6 million followers.

Take, for instance, this video condemning face mask mandates as something only “sheep” would follow.

‘Not Asking for Permission’: Hundreds of California Churches Plan to Open May 31

Nearly 500 California pastors are preparing to open their doors on Sunday, May 31st – whether or not they have guidance from the state. 

“The churches are not asking for permission,” said Bob Tyler, a religious freedom attorney advising the pastors. “The governor is sitting here as a dictator, trumping the Constitution and is kind of hanging on to this state of emergency for as long as he can hold it.”

Tyler says the pastors, including Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, Matt Brown of Sandals Church in Riverside, and Danny Carroll of Water of Life Community Church in Fontana, have signed a petition and plan to advise Gov. Gavin Newsom of their plans which include social distancing.

Evangelical Churches Sue California Governor Over Ban On Singing During Services

Gavin Newsom is violating religious liberty rights by prohibiting singing and chanting at worship services as the state tries to curb COVID-19, the suit says.

The evangelical congregations insist Newsom is infringing on their religious liberty by forcing them to stop singing and chanting during indoor services, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in federal court in Sacramento.

“To prohibit group singing and chanting is to effectively prohibit corporate Christian worship,” the complaint states.

California’s health department updated its guidelines for houses of worship on July 1, adding new restrictions on singing and chanting. The guidelines explain that these activities “negate the risk reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing” since there is a greater chance that COVID-19 will spread through “contaminated exhaled droplets.” 

But the Northern California churches ― Calvary Chapel of Ukiah, Calvary Chapel of Fort Bragg and River of Life Church in Oroville ― don’t appreciate the government telling them how to worship. The churches are seeking an injunction against the health department’s ban in a lawsuit that names Newsom and three health officials as defendants

190 pastors in Nevada demand churches be allowed in-person services

Pastors and other religious leaders from around that state are demanding that restrictions on in-person services be lifted immediately, reports KTNV in Las Vegas. Some 190 of them signed a letter objecting to Gov. Steve Sisolak’s emergency order limiting gatherings to 10 people, including in churches. They say it is unnecessary.

David Oberg, pastor of Faith Alive Christian Center in Reno, summed it up in a press release: “We simply ask for him to reconsider that decision and allow us the freedom of religion and to peacefully assemble again.”

Christian leaders rally in Raleigh demanding reopening of churches

Churchgoers from across the state gathered in downtown Raleigh Thursday to rally against Gov. Roy Cooper’s stay-at-home order and demand the right to hold services inside their buildings.

The group leading the charge, Return America, is led by pastors and Christian educators. During the rally, the group announced that they had filed a lawsuit against Cooper over not allowing indoor assemblies at churches.

Berean Baptist Church, Pastor of the church and Return America President Ronnie Baity and People’s Baptist Church filed the federal lawsuit to block enforcement of rules covering religious services. Those filing the suit say the state’s restrictions violate the First Amendment and treat churches differently from retailers.

‘The governor is a servant of the state. I am a servant of God’: 3 pastors defend why they’re leading the charge to reopen churches

Diego Mesa was driving in Southern California on Thursday evening when he passed shops selling donuts, clothes, and cannabis.

It boggles his mind that these businesses were marked as essential and permitted to reopen on May 8, as Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan moved into its second stage. Churches, however, were shelved until the plan’s third phase — lumped in with personal care, exercise, and entertainment facilities.

“Our ideals differ in what we view as essential,” Mesa told Business Insider. “When we are deemed as non-essential, there’s an agenda there.”

As the pastor of the Abundant Living Family Church in Rancho Cucamonga, Mesa is among more than 1,200 religious leaders in California who’ve signed a Declaration of Essentiality for Churches, vowing to host in-person services on May 31, Pentecost Sunday, with or without Newsom’s blessing.
