Fed Judge Blocks North Carolina Governor Order To Close Churches

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on May 18, 2020

In North Carolina a federal judge put a stop to Governor Cooper’s executive order limiting Church services to only ten people, stating that the order was unconstitutional.

Judge James C. Dever III stated in his ruling that there is “no pandemic exception” to the Constitution and that Governor Cooper’s order allowed businesses to remain open at 50% capacity but not Churches.

“The record, at this admittedly early stage of the case, reveals that the governor appears to trust citizens to perform non-religious activities indoors (such as shopping or working or selling merchandise) but does not trust them to do the same when they worship together indoors,”
– Judge James C. Dever III

Dever also said the ruling would not hold up in court because it was a violation of people’s first amendment rights.

“There is no pandemic exception to the Constitution of the United States or the free exercise clause of the First Amendment,”
– Judge James C. Dever III

Governor Cooper does not plan to appeal the ruling. However he is urging Church’s to follow social distancing recommendations to keep their congregations safe.
