(TheFreedomFlag.Com)- All across the United States, Christians and people of other faiths have seen politicians (mostly Democrats) force the closure of places of worship and cancel religious ceremonies. Attorney General William Barr isn’t happy about it.
Kerry Kupec, the spokeswoman for Barr, announced on Twitter that “action” would be taken against government officials who shut down religious services while the country deals with the ongoing Chinese coronavirus pandemic. The statement was released on Easter Sunday, a day when millions of Christians across the country would have been celebrating with friends and family at church.
“During this sacred week for many Americans, AG Barr is monitoring govt regulation of religious services,” Kupec said. “While social distancing policies are appropriate during this emergency, they must be applied even-handedly & not single out religious orgs.”

Kupec ended by saying, “Expect action from DOJ next week!”
Action from the Department of Justice could potentially shut down Democrats all over the country infringing on Americans’ rights to worship. Millions of people are out at supermarkets every day, drive-thru restaurants are still open, but drive-thru religious ceremonies have been canceled in several states so far. Barr sees that injustice.
Quite an extreme example of politicians shutting down religious ceremonies comes from Kentucky, where Democrat Governor Andy Beshear told residents of the state that police officers would be sent to attend churches over the Easter weekend. Those police officers were instructed to take note of the license plates of those who attend Easter worship services. Those caught attending would also be forced to quarantine at home for 14 days.

Such huge overreach in a country as religious as the United States is causing extreme anger, and Barr’s interjection will be welcomed by many.
The Department of Justice has not provided details about what measures will be taken yet, but it is unlikely the announcement would have been made if Barr and his team didn’t believe their efforts would be successful.
