Churches Sue Democrat Michigan Gov. Whitmer for Violating First Amendment Right to Religious Expression

Churches and worshippers have filed similar lawsuits in Wisconsin, California and Kentucky.

A group of Michigan churches have banded together to sue Governor Gretchen Whitmer over her controversially strict stay-at-home order that they say violates the First Amendment right to religious expression.

Under Whitmer’s orders, gatherings of two or more people who are not part of the same household are prohibited, including at religious services until May 28, 2020.

According to her order, religious institutions and their owners are exempt from legal penalty, but people who attend the services are not.

The lawsuit states that while “’neither a place of religious worship nor its owner is subject to penalty under section 20 of this order for allowing religious worship at such place,’ nothing in this provision applies to individuals attending a place or worship as clergy or congregants and does not apply to Plaintiffs.”

“This case seeks to protect and vindicate statutory and fundamental constitutional rights. Plaintiffs bring this civil rights action under the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution and 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and for other statutory and constitutional violations, challenging Defendant’s EOs, acts, policies, and regulations which deprive Plaintiffs of their rights,” the lawsuit continues.

To rectify the situation, the lawsuit is asking the court to issue a permanent injunction against Whitmer’s order.

“Plaintiffs are entitled to a declaratory ruling and injunctive relief to protect their constitutional and statutory rights to meet and otherwise freely exercise their religious conscience,” the suit asks the court.

Churches and worshippers have filed similar lawsuits in Wisconsin, California and Kentucky.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that “Whitmer is also facing a potential investigation after she awarded a coronavirus-related contract to a Democratic consulting firm. She rescinded the contract and pledged to cooperate with investigators before walking back her pledge to be transparent during the investigation.”

CNN and MSNBC COMPLETELY IGNORE Shocking Murder of 5-Year-Old White Boy By Black Neighbor

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor.

Leftist news networks CNN and MSNBC are completely ignoring the shocking murder of five-year-old Cannon Hinnant by his father’s black neighbor in North Carolina.

Had the races been reversed, we would have never heard the end of this story.

Hinnant was playing outside with his siblings when Darius Sessoms became outraged that the small child had ventured into his yard. The monster went up to the boy, put a gun to his head, and pulled the trigger.

Cannon was about to start Kindergarten.

After murdering the child, Sessoms fled and lead police on a 24 hour chase before being apprehended. You would think that mainstream media would have wanted to help get the name and face of a violent and dangerous killer out there — but nope!

It turns out, crimes against children is a common theme in this family.

The Nationalist Review reports “Darius’ brother, Joshua Sessoms, was a former North Carolina State football player. Joshua Sessoms eventually became a science teacher at Southern Nash High, where he was charged with raping students at the high school and other underage girls. The mother of the two felons is currently seeking prayers on Facebook.”

Sessoms is in custody and has been charged with murder.
