Pastor Sues Governor Over In-Person Worship Limits
The pastor of a small church in Northern Colorado has sued Gov. Jared Polis in an effort to welcome more people in to his building. High Plains Harvest Church Pastor Mark Hotaling told CBS4’s Dillon Thomas he hoped the 22-page federal lawsuit would force the governor to allow places of worship to welcome more in their congregation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Hotaling said he feels the state is holding places of worship to stricter guidelines than both local and federal rules.

“Scripture says we are to submit to the governing authorities above us. One of those authorities is the constitution,” Hotaling said. “It is time to open up.” ...

Do you think the Chinese are saying, “ oh the real Bible is illegal, ok lets read the fake communist version because we need to obey our leaders”? nope, well, the 3 self churches do
That wasn't my point. This isn't persecution. This is about wider public safety. The USA in parts are digging mass graves for the dead and some are more concerned about opening churches back to normal when other temporary ways of connecting exist.

We aren't really persecuted in this country, and we still have a say in things, as we should. If a few dozen or a few hundred BLTQGXYZ types can turn a nation, couldn't a few hundred thousand Christians dig up their talents, set aside their fatalistic leanings and martyr complex, do more?

I don't think this will go far. Anyway, as Christians we need to be responsible in our behaviour in the community we're part of. I see what is being said, other things are opening but churches aren't allowed to open and it is implied to be discrimination or persecution.

Even if it were a form of persecution which is where I feel they're going with it... How many persecuted countries sue their government? I think wisdom needs to be applied here as this virus is causing damage and until the USA can get it under control I'd have thought minimising contact would be a smart thing. It's harder but not impossible to have fellowship in smaller groups or over a phone call... Think about how those in persecution handle it. This I think is only temporary.

When looking at constitutional rights, I find it interesting how people complain about it being violated (in an extreme situation). Consider God may be asking something of us that is a sacrifice compared to what we're used to in the western world.

God and the constitution don't go hand in hand.

Amen! I pray more pastors stand up against governor tyrants to defend our constitutional rights, for the sake of all Americans. If we stop holding tyrants accountable, they will only get worse.
