Kentucky Christians who attended drive-in services on Easter despite warnings from the governor to stay home over the coronavirus pandemic were met by police presence and nails dumped in the road, the pastor of a Kentucky church said.
Democratic Kentucky Andy Beshear had announced that the state would enforce a stay-at-home measure by recording the license plates of any person attending Easter services. Americans in other states, such as in Nevada, Colorado, California, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania, similarly gathered to observe the Christian holiday through drive-in church services.
This is a time and weekend, a whole week for multiple faiths, that is about faith. Its about knowing we have faced as people as Christians, as Jews, as members of many faiths many difficult, dark times, and we have prevailed, Beshear said Friday. He did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Kentucky State Troopers recorded the license plate numbers of those who attended an Easter Sunday service at the Kentucky Maryville Baptist Church, leaving notices on the windshields of the 50 church goers cars, and warning those persons to quarantine for 14 days or else face further enforcement measures, according to USA Today.
Maryville Baptist Church had also received a state-backed order from the Bullitt County Health Department ordering the church to immediately cease in-person gatherings, the publication reports, but Rev. Jack Roberts held a Wednesday service regardless of the order.
Roberts said that he arrived at the church Sunday to find nails dumped at church parking lot entrances, USA Today reports. The Kentucky State Police did not respond the DCNFs question asking if they knew where the nails came from.
Of all the places to keep you from, they shouldve put them down at the liquor store keep people from getting drunk, going home, and killing somebody on the way, Roberts said, Fox News reports. They couldve put them down at the abortion center. They couldve saved some lives down there, maybe.
It was sad when we drove into the house of God today, the pastor told his congregation, the publication reports. Someone decided it would be nice if you all drove home with flat tires today.
Roberts did not respond to a request for comment.
Photos posted by a the Courier Journal show police officers putting notices on cars, nails on the road, and a man holding signs that read Tyrant Beshear and Without KSP Beshear is just a guy with bad ideas.
The notices accused those in the cars of CREATING SCENES OF AN EMERGENCY, according to Fox News.
Other lawmakers had imposed similar restrictions as Easter Sunday approached. Greenville Mayor Errick Simmons had banned in-person services as part of Mississippis shelter-in-place order, the Daily Mail reports, though the order did not specify that drive-in services were banned.
Video footage shows police shutting down Reverend James Hamiltons drive-in-service at King James Baptist Church in Greenville, Mississippi.
Im a good citizen, I aint breaking no law. I aint selling no drugs. Im just preaching the word of God. Look at all these police cars here, Hamilton can be heard saying in a viral video he posted Thursday. He did not respond to a request for comment from the DCNF.
How about a Federal Civil Rights investigation of the Kentucky State Police for targeting churches?
Nice of the oh so tolerant public servants to dump nails all over.
Bet they wouldn’t do that at a MOSQUE.
The judge should demand an explanation of the police state tactics. Will he?
Wow. Not even our crazy Dems have tried anything like that.
only following orders
and keep voting for the constitutional/patriot party de jour.....
I expected Democrats to vote for Beshears for Governor. But, he was elected by Republicans who voted for him. Thanks, you morons.
Clear the way for a parishioner to leave and get some of those wide magnets on wheels to pick up the nails.
Then have a very loud and publicized sermon.
Praaaiiiisseee the Loooooorrrd!
Free nails from heeeeaaaaaven!
I was just shocked that Trump got elected, what with the wimpy pub voters....
just look at this covid "crisis" see how willing people are to concede their lives and livelihoods over it...not just their own, but everybodies...
Thanks to Kentucky’s no voter ID law AND Jefferson and Lafayette counties, we now have Beshear in Frankfort.
Beshear just vetoed a law requiring voter ID (color me surprised). A supra majority of both houses voted for it. Will they do so again to override his veto? Gonna be interesting to see how many pairs of balls reside in Frankfort.
I asked a relative, who claimed vote fraud was inconsequential and equally committed by both parties, why all Pubbies voted for ID and ALL Rats voted against it. Yeah, no coherent answer.
Sorry folks, but the republic is dead and has been for some time.
Kentucky and West Virginia both are a special kind of stupid in which they still think it is 1936. Conservatives only accidentally win elections here.
Have you ever been to a Trump Rally? I doubt you’d dare to call anybody there ‘wimpy’.
I’m thinking that is simply a poorly worded sentence. Were there photos of cops dumping nails on the road? Or did the photo show nails on the road, just as they showed the man with the sign?
Those chicken$#!+ donut stuffers wouldn’t have the balls to block a mosque like that. Come KY. Isn’t it time to boot Beshear?
They’re afraid of being called “islamophobic” if they block a mosque and purposely damage vehicles.
Maybe someone will pave the entrance to the police station with nails. Some of these public servants are acting like dictators over this overblown crisis. What will they do when we face a real crisis? I can’t see millions of people ever going back to the way we were before this mess.
