La Junta de Supervisores ha votado unánimemente para desestimar la demanda en contra de Godspeak Calvary Chapel. La demanda fue un último recurso para mantener la seguridad pública por medio del cumplimiento con las Órdenes de Salud Pública del Estado en la altura de la pandemia para prevenir la propagación del COVID-19. Desestimar la demanda es una acción de buena voluntad reconociendo que se han relajado las restricciones en el interior y en conjunto con la entrada del Condado al Nivel Naranja. Extendemos nuestra profunda apreciación y agradecimiento a los lugares de adoración que han trabajado arduamente y que continúan siguiendo las pautas de salud pública de mantener el distanciamiento social, el uso de máscaras y llevar a cabo los servicios al aire libre o virtualmente para mantener a sus congregaciones seguras de los impactos devastadores del COVID-19.

They are running scared because they broke the law. They threatened businesses and groups outside their jurisdiction and in violation of the constitution. We must get rid of every one of them. They went along with Newsom to maintain their salaries and not do what they were elected to do. They were elected to run Ventura county not kiss the back of the state run by a dictator and communist.

While I’m thrilled the case is dismissed, look at the hell they put the church through. They only dismissed it because they know they were wrong.

Every Government official who authorized churches to be closed while Wal-Mart was open should be sued for Civil Rights violations. This isn’t going away. There will be another reason to shut churches down every year. SCOTUS has ruled orders cannot apply to religion. SUE THEM!!

Hmm SCOTUS determines Newsom directed illegal closures and over rides 9th Circuit Court. Supes drop lawsuit. This was not solely about home meetings. Read this closely: https://www.npr.org/2021/04/10/986010977/supreme-court-rules-for-worshippers-and-against-california-covid-restrictions
