This Thursday, May 14th there will be a Press Conference attended by Rep Keith Kidwell (R- NC79) to bring attention to a Lawsuit filed by Return America on behalf of hundreds of churches whose religious liberties have been violated by Gov Roy Cooper.
The press conference will take place at 11:00 AM in front of the North Carolina General Assembly located at 16 West Jones Street in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The purpose of this lawsuit is to remind the governor that churches are free to exercise their rights under the North Carolina Constitution Article 1, Section 13, and under the United States Constitution in the First Amendment.
If you can make the press conference, please do. We need a great show of support for this lawsuit so we can send a message to Cooper.
" Through Cooper's executive orders, he has restricted the people's right to attend church by limiting attendance to a maximum of no more than ten people per service, and previously his restriction did not allow any indoor church services. During the same time, he allowed ABC stores, abortion centers, hardware stores, Wal-Mart stores, vapor shops, NASCAR, and others to operate at much larger capacities. This is an infringement on the religious rights of the citizens of North Carolina. The North Carolina Constitution states explicitly under Religious liberty. “All persons have a natural and inalienable right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences, and no human authority shall, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience.” "
