A federal judge ruled against Kansas Governor Laura Kelly’s executive order that restricts church and religious gatherings to less than ten people on Saturday, recognizing that events such as church services are protected by the First Amendment even in times of emergency.
The federal court issued a a temporary restraining order against the enforcement of Kelly’s order, citing that the state of Kansas has declined to formally prohibit similar events occurring at secular facilities such as factories and airports. The Democratic Governor pushed back against the ruling, suggesting that she intends to appeal the restraining order in a higher court.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, however, lauded the ruling, stating that church services were beyond the formal prohibition of state authorities.
“Today’s judicial ruling is a much-needed reminder that the Constitution is not under a stay-home order and the Bill of Rights cannot be quarantined. The Constitution protects our liberties especially during times of crisis, when history reveals governments too quick to sacrifice rights of the few to calm fears of the many.”
There’s reason to believe that only an extremely small minority of American church congregations are even holding dangerous events in which the coronavirus could be spread. Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear organized a major crackdown on churches planning services on Easter Sunday, but ultimately clarified that his office could only identify 17 churches holding events, many of whom were presumably only hosting small crowds, in the entire state of Kentucky.
The vast majority of American religious institutions are behaving responsibly of their own accord. Heavy-handed attempts by state governments to shut down the churches while institutions such as liquor stores and abortion clinics remain open do a disservice to the antiviral strategy of social distancing.
BIG: Trump Bans Federal Contractors From Engaging in Hateful Critical Race Theory Indoctrination
No more race-based indoctrination.
Weeks after banning the use of hateful critical race theory indoctrination sessions among federal agencies, President Donald Trump is expanding the CRT ban to companies that receive lucrative federal government contracts.
The President announced he is expanding the ban to cover private government contractors in a series of Tuesday tweets.
…with our Country, the United States Military, Government Contractors, and Grantees. Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t, there’s nothing in it for you!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 22, 2020
The ban on governmental contractors will doubtlessly instill panic in the CEO’s of powerful Fortune 500 companies, who love to tout their supposed virtue by staging race-based trainings on their often unwilling employees. Many of these companies are largely dependent on payments from the United States government, despite masquerading as a “free enterprise.”
The President’s executive order on the matter refutes the liberal identity-politics doctrine alleging that some people are inherently oppressive or evil on the basis of their race.
The ban’s coverage of contractors that do business with the United States military may be the most significant. Organizations such as Sandia National Laboratories, which is a longstanding federal nuclear research institutions, were busted staging hateful “trainings” in which white male employees were coerced into repeating progressive and BLM-style drivel.
Christopher Rufo, whose reporting may have been essential in bringing hateful CRT trainings to President Trump’s attention, has obtained a copy of the executive order banning its practitioners from receiving government contracts. View it here.
