California Demands Church Pay $3.8 Million in COVID Fines Even Though SCOTUS Struck Down Its Worship Ban

(Lifenews) All they did was meet together for worship in obedience to the Word of God. Then the government started fining them. Now, officials have shown up with a warrant and are interrogating their employees. The worst part of all is that the Supreme Court has twice ruled in favor of Calvary Chapel San Jose, yet still state and local governments are harassing them.

  2. This case will be a very important one. They are going to go after churches now. “Give us your membership list.” I also predict that all those greedy churches who took the “free” PPP money are going to regret that day when the government will threaten to call it back (just because they claim it is “forgiven” doesn’t mean anything in this lawless country anymore) if you don’t bow and scrape. I have yet to hear of one single church who truly needed the money (beyond those who had to shut down their preschool programs suddenly) beyond getting the “free money” so many kept repeating like robots. That “free money” has golden handcuffs that churches don’t realize yet.
