This Activity Is Unlawful’: California Church Fined $10,000 for Singing, Meeting Indoors
Verse of the Day
Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
1 Peter 2:5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
CALIFORNIA: CHURCHES UNDER ATTACK
“North Valley Baptist Church in Santa Clara, Calif., was fined $10,000 by Santa Clara County for conducting two indoor worship services that included singing. It also received a cease-and-desist order. (The county fined the church $5,000 for a Sunday morning service and $5,000 for a Sunday evening service.)
Jack Trieber, pastor of North Valley Baptist Church, decried the county’s fine.“I’m in charge of the spiritual health of the people who sit in this area,” he said in a video inside the church building. “… And although [physical] health is very important — of utmost importance – spiritual health is supreme. And because we’ve been locked out … of churches, suicide is up, domestic violence is up, drug addiction is up, homelessness is up, alcoholism is up. We need to get back to worshiping God. I am commanded to worship God.”
Trieber said he is “willing to take a stand.”
HARD LEFT VS CHRISTIANITY
“Former United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice said that it is “problematic” that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is “overtly religious.”
“Mike Pompeo has been an overtly religious secretary of state, which in itself is problematic because again he’s supposed to represent all of America, all of our religions,” Rice told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. Pompeo has often spoken publicly about his Christian faith, saying in May that he reads both his Bible and intelligence reports in the morning.
Rice’s criticism echoes a New York Times “news analysis” piece from 2019 where correspondent Edward Wong wrote that Pompeo talking about Christianity and foreign policy has “increasingly raised questions about the extent to which evangelical beliefs are influencing American diplomacy.”
“Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) told Vanity Fair that the current moment — and “movement” on the streets — gives more “credibility” to why she ran for office.
Vanity Fair published a photo portfolio to celebrate Black Lives Matter activists and those who are on the “forefront of change.” The collection of activists includes “Squad” member Rashida Tlaib, who told the magazine that the current movement solidifies why she ran for Congress.“How has this moment galvanized you and your activism?” the magazine asked.”
