The First Amendment of the Constitution clearly states that
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances
How does a person of faith respond when our state and local governments take away our freedom of religion, ban speech that goes against the "woke" narrative, or allow civil unrest in our community?
When the Supreme Court ruled the “safer at home” order -which shuttered local business and churches alike-an unconstitutional overreach, the local officials in Kenosha crafted their own policy which would have continued the restrictions put in place by the governor’s defunct order. When that plan was withdrawn do to legal concerns the city instead implemented a mask ordinance for the entire city demanding that masks be worn inside all buildings including churches or threat of fines. Whether you believe that masks should be worn or not, Church leaders should be the ones making decisions on how they are going to respond to any crisis for the best of their congregation. Government officials should not be forcing churches to conduct their services in compliance with mandates that restrict individual freedoms. Think about it. The government mandating people wear a specific type of cloth in public. Sound familiar?
The county and city board consists of residents that are elected to make decisions that affect every one of us in the community. They are all up for re-election in 2022. With the power of your vote, you get to decide who serves for the next two years in your community
