A notorious Governor is trying to use the Coronavirus crisis to win a big political fight.
His underhanded tactic is about to be his downfall.
A top Democrat is shaking with fear. William Barr hit him with this big lawsuit.
Ralph Northam is one of the most infamous members of the Democratic Party after a picture emerged from his medical school yearbook.
The picture is of a man in blackface standing next to a man in Ku Klux Klan garb, Northam apologized saying he dressed in blackface before retracting the apology and claiming neither of the men were him.
Northam has come under fire for infringing on Second Amendment rights. Northam, a former pediatric doctor, has also advocated for expanding abortion rights to the point of infanticide.
Northam recently signed into law, on Good Friday, an “anti-discrimination” bill which could put churches, synagogues and other religious institutes at risk of lawsuits if they require their religious leaders and staff to follow the tenants of their religion.
Northam made it illegal for more than 10 people to gather together during the current coronavirus crisis.
One of Northam’s advisers said that it would take two years to reopen the state.
“We cannot and will not lift restrictions like one turns on a light switch.” Northam said himself “Easing too much too soon could jeopardize public health and consumer confidence.”
Virginia’s hospital system is not in any danger of being overwhelmed.
Only 1,027 confirmed coronavirus patients are currently being treated and there are 4,726 hospital beds available and only 20% of the state’s 2952 ventilators are being used.
The goal of flattening the curve is to make sure that the hospital system is not overwhelmed.
Kevin Wilson, the pastor of Lighthouse Fellowship Church on Chincoteague Island, was summoned for holding a service on April 5 with 16 people who were able to space out according to social distancing recommendations in a building that was made to hold 293.
The police also threatened the congregants that if there were more than 10 people in the building on Easter they would serve summons to every person in the building.
The DOJ led by William Barr has stepped into this case to stop Governor Northam’s insanity.
Stores and businesses have less restrictions on them than churches.
“The Commonwealth of Virginia has offered no good reason for refusing to trust congregants who promise to use care in worship in the same way it trusts accountants, lawyers, and other workers to do the same,” the DOJ wrote.
“As Plaintiff has made an initial showing that the Commonwealth’s executive orders treat religious organizations less favorably than similar secular organizations and the Commonwealth has not yet carried its strict-scrutiny burden of justifying its differential treatment of religion, the Court should grant Plaintiff’s motion and grant an injunction pending appeal.” the statement from the DOJ continued.
Northam could pay a big price for his actions in the upcoming election.
Northam needs to stop trying to control the people of his state and should promote freedom of religion instead of freedom to kill infants.
