In Chicago, two churches have been threatened by city officials with complete destruction if they fail to obey the arbitrary edits issued by the city concerning COVID restrictions. They said the buildings would be demolished.
Although statistics prove that the virus is no more deadly than the flu, and that fatalities have dropped in massive numbers, somehow, the war against Christian Americans, small businesses and freedom is ramping up.
The lawyer for two Chicago churches has reported that city officials informed his clients that they would consider bulldozing their facilities if they do not comply with COVID-19 edicts.
Matt Staver, the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said on Wednesday that the city is classifying his clients as “public nuisances.” He said they were issued a letter declaring that the city “has the power and duty to cause all nuisances affecting the health of the public to be abated.” The letter threatened a “summary abatement,” which would mean the destruction of the facilities without due process.
Staver said during an appearance on the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that he is seeking an emergency injunction and hopes to take the case to the Supreme Court. The motion for the injunction is headed to the desk of SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh right now.
