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.
Giuliani’s 9/11 Charity Stepping Up to Host Light Memorial Ceremony After Coronavirus Canceled It
It’s a New York tradition.
A charity linked to former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is preparing to hold a light memorial event commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, stepping up to host the event after social distancing concerns led the society that normally stages the event to cancel it.
Frank Siller, the President of Tunnel2Towers, confirmed that the group will be staging a memorial event that is “almost identical” to the annual Towers of Light commemoration that the Municipal Art Society sets up on September 11th every year.
It had appeared that Bill de Blasio’s city government was integral in convincing the Municipal Art Society to cancel the memorial, raising questions as to why New York’s mayor is actively seeking to prevent 9/11 memorial events while actively promoting Black Lives Matter riots, protests, and the installation of street art intended to glorify the far-left movement.
If the Towers of Light memorial had been effectively cancelled, it would’ve been the first year since 2002 that the identifiable lights are absent from New York’s skyline on the night of September 11th. The Towers of Light are visible for many miles.
“The ceremonial Towers of Light that shine from NYC in tribute to those lost on 9/11 are an iconic symbol of hope,” stated Tunnel2Towers in a Friday statement confirming their plans. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who presided over the mayoralty during the terrorist attacks, has been described as a leadership figure of the charity.
“It’s going to be a magnificent tribute to those who died,” said Siller on a Friday radio segment. “We have already secured the lights, and by Monday or Tuesday we will have finished securing the location which is right down by Ground Zero.”
New Yorkers and Americans cannot forget the heroism and tragedy of 9/11, especially as a left-wing Democrat Mayor seeks to essentially replace commemoration of the event with worship of the Black Lives Matter movement.
