Extreme Measures Taken To Stop Churchgoers on Easter Sunday in Kentucky

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on April 13, 2020

A church in Kentucky that defied the governor’s coronavirus orders by holding service in person was met with a heavy police presence and nails at the entrance to the church’s parking lot

On Easter Sunday Marysville Baptist Church decided to hold service in person. Governor Andy Beshear threatened to mandate anyone who attended a mass gathering over the Easter weekend would be ordered to a 14 day quarantine.

When the pastor, Dr. Jack Roberts arrived at the Church he discovered that at least one box of nails was placed at the entrance to the parking lot.

“It was sad when we drove into the house of God today. Someone decided it would be nice if you all drove home with flat tires today,”
“Of all the places to keep you from, they should’ve put them down at the liquor store — keep people from getting drunk going home and killing somebody on the way. They could’ve been them down at the abortion center. They could’ve saved some lives down there, maybe.
– Dr. Jack Roberts

The pastor held service despite the state’s stay at home order. Several people drove over 12 hours to attend the service. 50 people attended service inside the Church while others listened to the service from the Church’s parking lot via a sound system.

Roberts believes he has a right to hold a service and wasn’t making an attempt to defy the government. Police left signs on every car that was in attendance stating, “CREATING SCENES OF AN EMERGENCY”

The Governor has threatened that police would record the license plates of anyone who attended a service and pass that information on to state health officials.

A federal judge on Saturday ruled that the Louisville ban on drive in Church services was unconstitutional after a pastor from On Fire Christian Church sued.

Many states across the country have ordered Church’s to stop in person services, but very few if any have taken it as far as Governor Andy Beshear
