There’s been an ongoing pattern of singling out Christians and Jews, harassing churches and synagogues, while making no mention of the mass BLM rallies, or having anything to say about say mosques.
A California church challenged local coronavirus restrictions on worship services, and county authorities responded by canceling the church’s five-decade-old lease.
County officials informed Grace Community Church that it will terminate its decades-old lease on a parking lot after the church filed a lawsuit over local restrictions against in-person worship. The county told the church in a letter it intends to terminate the lease of a large section of the parking lot that the church leases, threatening to forcibly remove any of the church’s property that remained in the lot.
And now there’s this LA County bulletin that seems to be channeling Bill de Blasio.
The following examples of in-person gatherings are not permitted, even if they feel safe: celebrating the new arrival of a baby with a baby shower or gender reveal party; having a barbeque with a group of friends in the backyard for Labor Day; hosting a study group with school students; having dinner with extended family and friends to honor the High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur); gathering at the beach with friends over the hot weekend. These types of gatherings are risky as they bring together people who do not live together and increase the chances of community transmission.
Unlike Black Lives Matter rallies.
1. LA County’s experts don’t seem to understand how Yom Kippur works.
2. Singling out a particular religious group is discriminatory, especially when there’s no mention of the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots and rallies, essentially allowing them, while lecturing religious believers, beachgoers and students about how dangerous their behavior is.
A demonstration against the fatal shooting of Dijon Kizzee on Saturday night ended with deputies and protesters clashing in front of the South Los Angeles sheriff’s station.
A spokesperson with the L.A. County Sheriff’s Office said protesters started throwing rocks and bottles at deputies so they responded with sting balls and pepper balls.
Unlike religious observances or study groups, this is fine.
