There must obviously be something going on that’s not mentioned here. I’m guessing a feud between the city and the church. Maybe some animosity between a city council memeber and someon on the church board.
Or maybe the city just has a severe case of HUA.
People who are drawn to government that make these decisions have true evil in their heart. They have a sadistic view of humans. They relish making peoples lives miserable.
Our Founders main concern was that government would grow in power with people of this nature filling the ranks. Our Founders new the nature of people who are attracted to government employment.
If these government parasites succeed in destroying our Republic, they will be the ones to rightfully suffer the consequences.
