Churches Still Closed While Strip Clubs Reopen In California

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This kind of corruption and depravity is now commonplace in far-Left California. It’s no wonder why the citizens of this once great state are leaving in droves.

Last month, a federal appeals court decided 2 to 1 Thursday to uphold Gov. Gavin Newsom’s coronavirus restrictions on indoor worship during the pandemic.

CA Judge Orders San Diego Strip Clubs To Reopen As Churches Fight For Same Right

By Daily Wire, November 19, 2020

A judge ordered strip clubs reopened in San Diego earlier this month, leading a lawyer from a law firm representing multiple churches in California to protest what he described as “a constitutional travesty.”

San Diego Superior Court judge Joel R. Wohlfeil issued a temporary restraining order against Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom and San Diego County that orders them to cease any action that prevents such establishments from “being allowed to provide live adult entertainment,” according to The Washington Free Beacon.

The court found that the entertainment at the two strip clubs involved in the case is “constitutionally protected speech” and concluded that “the harm to [the strip clubs] if the Application is denied is greater than the harm to [the government] if the Application is granted.”

Paul Jonna, an attorney with the Thomas More Society, which is representing several churches in California that are fighting to maintain their right to peaceably assemble, told the Free Beacon: “If you’re going to accept that argument that dancing nude is protected speech that’s so significant that it overcomes the government’s interest in regulating its citizens with COVID-19 orders, then obviously the divine worship of God, which is expressly mentioned in the First Amendment, should be held to a higher standard.”

In a statement provided to The Daily Wire, Jonna went on:

This is a constitutional travesty that must be immediately rectified. As one California judge aptly noted – you can’t treat a church like a hair salon because churches are entitled to greater protection under the Constitution. And you certainly can’t treat a church like a strip club. In California, churches are being treated worse than strip clubs. The constitutional right to worship God is infinitely more important than any right to entertainment.

“We will not rest until we fully vindicate the fundamental constitutional right to worship God without government interference,” Jonna added.

Pastor John MacArthur, who pastors Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, 120 miles north of San Diego, has been battling state and local authorities in court after he reopened his church in July. In response, the county has seemingly targeted him for retribution.
