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.

“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.
Upcoming Book Shows the Heroism of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Who Exposed Defrocked Sex Abuse Cardinal
Viganò would make a great candidate for saint.
An upcoming book, Finding Viganò: In Search of the Man Whose Testimony Shook the Church and the World, profiles the courage and strength of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, a whistleblower who exposed how a pedophile priest was being harbored by marxist apostate Pope Francis.
LifeSiteNews explains that book author Dr. Robert Moynihan was able to spend a few days with Viganò in July 2019, a rarity considering his reclusion since 2018. Viganò continues to stay in touch with a close circle of family members and friends while worshipping the Lord out of the public eye.
Viganò showed himself in public in January 2020 to pray and protest against the German Episcopal Conference and its President Cardinal Marx, who are pushing for Christian acceptance of homosexuality and other forms of sexual deviancy. However, Viganò has largely been in hiding since he published his iconic report regarding the rehabilitation of pedophile Cardinal Theodore McCarrick by Pope Francis after the Vatican fully understood that he preyed upon innocent children.
Big League Politics reported on McCarrick’s defrocking by the Catholic Church last year in the aftermath of Viganò’s shocking allegations:
A former Roman Catholic Cardinal who was forced to resign from his office for sexual abuse last summer was dismissed from the clerical state in a Vatican trial on Friday.
Theodore McCarrick, 88, is the most senior member of the Catholic clergy to be defrocked in modern times. McCarrick was officially removed from the clergy on charges of soliciting sex while hearing confessions.
McCarrick had been first busted in July when a former altar boy went public with a story that involved McCarrick unzipping his pants and groping him in New York 1972. Another adult man then came public with his account of being abused by McCarrick as a boy, beginning when he was 11.
The sexual abuse accusations against the Cardinal led to several former Catholic seminarians stepping forward with accounts of McCarrick’s gay relationships with them. McCarrick had gained a reputation for abusive solicitation of men studying at seminaries to become Catholic priests.
The church judicial proceedings in regards to the abuse attributed to McCarrick revealed what many saw as a lack of will to confront allegations against the Archbishop of Washington among senior Vatican officials.
An Italian bishop, Carlo Maria Vigano, has accused Pope Francis of having prior knowledge of the accusations against McCarrick before they surfaced publicly. Vigano even took the almost entirely unprecedented step of calling for the Pope’s resignation over his handling of the now-disgraced former Cardinal.
Church authorities in the United States may have been secretly aware of the accusations against McCarrick, sweeping the reports under the rug.
Moynihan describes Viganò as “arguably one of the loneliest men in the world” while being forced into hiding to protect his own safety. Viganò is paying the price for having integrity and character in a world that is increasingly dominated by the Beast.
Despite the hurdles, Viganò does not regret exposing the Vatican’s protection of McCarrick and demanding the resignation of McCarrick’s enabler Pope Francis.
“Having clearly covered for McCarrick, it was only right that he first did what he asked the Chilean bishops to do,” Viganò told Moynihan about why it was right to demand Pope Francis’ resignation,
“It was something I had to do.” he explained. “I think that I have been a witness to the truth.”
He added that “my conscience is telling me to protect the Church. I see that the devil has been entering into the Church, on the top of it, and so that I have to stand up.”
If righteous Catholics can ultimately rise up and defeat the “deep church,” as Viganò refers to it, he will likely be remembered as one of the greatest followers of Christ ever to live and be a prime candidate for sainthood. Finding Viganò will be available for sale in November.
