President Donald Trump boldly declared that all “houses of worship” are “essential” during a press conference on Friday.
Trump pointed out the hypocrisy in certain governors allowing liquor stores and abortion clinics to operate while pastors have been fined and apprehended for hosting church services. He set the record straight while addressing the media this afternoon.
TRUMP: "Some governors have deemed liquor stores & abortion clinics essential, but have left out churches … it's not right. So I am correcting this injustice & am calling houses of worship essential. I call upon governors to allow churches & places of worship to open right now" pic.twitter.com/e0VU8XeLEm

“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now–for this weekend,” Trump said. “If they don’t do it, I will override the governors.”
“In America, we need more prayer not less,” Trump added.
The order applies to Christian churches as well as synagogues and mosques and shows his dedication to preserving religious liberty amidst coronavirus mass hysteria.
Big League Politics has reported on the anti-Christian agenda that has taken hold throughout the pandemic:
A Mississippi church that suffered an arson incident is also in a battle with the city over a Wuhan virus shelter order.
According to investigators, First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs was allegedly destroyed by an arsonist.
Investigators discovered graffiti on pavement in the church parking lot that read, “Bet you stay home now you hypokrits (sic).”
According to WLBT 3, Jerry Waldrop has been the church’s pastor for 31 years.
“We’ve tacked our brains and we have no idea,” Waldrop stated. “No enemies that we know of. We don’t know anyone that we even think could be capable of doing something like this.”
The fire came after Waldrop sued the City of Holly Springs in April. The 14-page document alleges that local police officers abruptly interrupted a mid-week bible study and the church’s Easter service 10 days earlier.
According to the complaint, the pastor conducted outdoor services when circumstances permitted but would hold them indoors while complying with social distancing standards when the weather got bad.
The complaint also demanded a temporary restraining order to keep Holly Springs from keeping services from taking place inside the church building.
The issue arose from Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves’ inclusion of churches with essential businesses in the state’s shelter order, but Holly Springs did not so.
“It is very clear local municipalities can have guidelines that are more strict than the governor’s guidelines, but they cannot have guidelines that directly conflict with what we have put in place,” Reeves said during a news conference on May 20.
Holly Springs City Attorney Shirley Byers stated that the city did not consider churches essential businesses in the shelter order enacted on March 23 but subsequently amended on April 24 to let churches conduct drive-thru services.
Trump’s declaration in favor of freedom of religion comes not a moment too soon, with faith under attack like never before.
JP Morgan Bank Drops Foreclosure Attempt on 100-Year Old WWII Veteran After NY Post Report
The bank had been trying to foreclose on a 100-year old veteran.
One of the biggest banks in the United States is giving up on a sleazy attempt to foreclose on the home of a 100-year old World War II veteran, after the New York Post reported on the legal actions that JP Morgan Chase was taking against James Been last week.
The multinational investment bank, with holdings of more than $2.5 trillion dollars, had been trying to foreclose on Been’s home in the Bedford-Stuyvestant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Attorneys for JP Morgan had filed a foreclosure claim in the court system after Been ceased making payments on a $100,000 loan his now-deceased wife had taken out with him in 2006, claiming that he hadn’t been involved in the issuance of the loan and that it was improper for the bank to issue it to a man in his 80’s.
After the Post’s report on the matter, JP Morgan humbly confirmed that they were giving up on the attempt to evict a 100-year old man from the home owned by his family for generations. “Mr. Been will not be evicted from his home and the loan will be forgiven,” said a bank spokesperson.
Been had served in the segregated 93rd Infantry Division during World War II, seeing action in the South Pacific theater of the war. The centenarian described many of his experiences in the armed forces and living in the United States when many communities practiced segregation in his initial profile by the Post. He went on to have a career as a trolley operator and bus driver before retiring.
Fortunately, it appears the shaming of the rapacious financial interests has ensured the veteran will keep his home.
