Lewis Stands With POTUS and MN Churches

May 22, 2020

U.S. Senate candidate Jason Lewis released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s announcement allowing churches to reopen immediately.

“Prohibiting worshipping during this lockdown is just the latest attempt at restricting religious freedom by radicals like Senator Tina Smith and Governor Tim Walz. From Little Sisters of the Poor to florists, bakers and even Minnesota filmmakers, liberal Democrats seem to be at war with those who practice according to their religious conscience. On this Memorial Day weekend, what’s next, removing the cross on the tombstones at Ft. Snelling?

I applaud the churches and clergy in Minnesota who showed the resolve to stand up to the Governor’s autocratic order unfairly restricting religious gatherings. No sensible person would consider abortion clinics and liquor stores ‘essential’ and places of worship during a period of social isolation ‘non-essential.’
