Federal judge punches back at Dem mayor who ‘criminalized’ Easter drive-in church services
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, a Democrat, issued a legal directive on Thursday prohibiting churches from gathering for Easter services, even if congregants remained in their cars for a “drive-in” service.
“We’re saying no church worshiping,” the mayor declared.
On Saturday, U.S. District Judge Justin Walker thoroughly rebuked the mayor for his mandate.
In an emergency ruling, Walker granted a local Louisville church, On Fire Christian Center, a temporary restraining order against Fischer’s directive, allowing the church, and presumably others in Louisville, to move forward with modified Easter gatherings.
The church sued Louisville on Friday, claiming Fischer’s order violated their constitutional rights, the Louisville Courier Journal reported.
