Democrat Illinois Governor Pritzker Says Christian Churches May Not Reopen For A Year

(Gateway Pundit) – Illinois Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker told reporters on Wednesday churches in his state may not reopen for a year.

Pritzker must believe the First Amendment is optional.

As Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported an Illinois church filed a lawsuit against Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker in April for violating the First Amendment and the state’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The lawsuit, filed by the Thomas More Society on behalf of The Beloved Church in Lena, claims that the governor has a “hostility” towards religious faith.

Pastor Steve Cassell is seeking a temporary restraining order to stop him from being arrested if he holds a service at the beginning of May.

We now know that top US physicians based their COVID-19 plan based on garbage models from the UK.

The Washington Examiner reported:

It could be more than a year before churches are allowed to resume their in-person gatherings, according to Democratic Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker.

Pritzker announced a five-phase plan to reopen Illinois that gives guidance to schools, businesses, churches, and other religious centers about when they will be allowed to reopen. In phase three, gatherings of up to 10 people will be allowed. In phase four, gatherings of up to 50 people will be allowed. Gatherings of more than 50 people will not be allowed until phase five.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Pritzker confirmed that churches will be held to the same standards and not be allowed to hold in-person services of more than 50 people until phase five, even if it takes more than a year to get to that position.

“You know, that in phase three, there can be gatherings, church gatherings, of 10 or fewer. In phase four, 50 or fewer. So that’s the guidance that’s been given to me,” Pritzker said. “I’m not the one providing that guidance. It really is what the scientists and epidemiologists are recommending.”

The Romanians who fled communism say they will open their churches.

  1. Hasn’t anybody heard of “RECALL” this clown is making up his own constitution and nobody has started a recall on this idiot. WAKE UP people remember “We the people” have options, don’t be sheeple STAND UP and get rid of this cancer that has invaded your state!!!!!!!

  2. FATSO has no comprehension of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Reading and comprehension has always been a problem for Democrats and FAKE NEWS media. They get lost on words with more than one letter.

  3. Pritzker the Prick is walking on dangerous ground.

    Getting to be time to water the Tree of Liberty with the blood of Tyrants……

    We’ll just save the blood of Patriots in the doing.

  4. So Illinois elected a pig for governor. Makes sense … that Chicago is a 3rd world city … they deserve this moron.

  5. No Bob, I don’t think they are Muslim, just anti Americans. it is not their right to close Churches of their own accord.

    • Look at the fat ass democrat violating the Bill of Rights and the US Constitution. Treason but with his fat ass, firing squad because no rope would hold him.

  6. What’s wrong with a 50 person limit for a while? Just have more services.
    With a little patience and some understanding things will get back to normal. If you keep insisting on large gatherings, weather its for church or a rock concert it’s going to go on forever.
    Bye the way. Nif. Trump already has a wife, why are you trying to hook him up with Eva?

    • It’s all relative. 50 persons? In a church designed to hold 100 or 1000???

      I believe most larger churches will be VERY conscious about safe worship.

      Smaller churches might not have the resources as much.

      Bottom line is the First Amendment does NOT have the word ‘EXCEPT’ in it.

  7. If the Christians can’t hold services then every Muslim holding any service must be arrested for holding their services.

  8. As we see the entire Democrat party turn to totalitarian dictatorship style governess we can become fully aware that these are the people working with communist China to conquer the world.

  9. My dear Democrat Illinois Governor Pritzker:
    As a Christian AND a Roman Catholic, all I can do is pray that our Lord Jesus Christ will guide you with His light, to awaken in you true repentance for all of your wrongdoings in your life so far, and that His love and guidance will then allow you to govern justly for ALL people, and not just the Democrats and the evil that most of them aspire to.
    In ALL Sincerity;
    May God bless you in all you do!

    • You can’t tell Christians that they can’t go to Church under State Statutes, No Government, Governor or Mayors can’t tell CHRISTIANS they can’t go to Church. It is they’re Right to go off they want to go.
      So listen CHUBBY PANTS YOUR WAY WRONG. WHO KNOWS SOMEONE IN THAT GROUP MIGHT EVEN PRAY FOR YOU. MORON!!

  10. PEOPLE WAKE UP… CAN’T YOU SEE THE ANTI-CHRIST SYSTEM GOING ON IN THESE DEMOCRATS .. THEY WANT TO LIVE BY SATANIC RULES AND NOT CHRISTIAN RULES.. IT IS AN ATTACK ON ALL GOOD PEOPLE

  11. This Governor needs to be Removed from Office now. Where do these people find idiots like this to Vote into Office. Its really sad but The Democrats vote idiots into office then they suffer the consequences for stupidity. When will they learn? These people are nut jobs.

  12. Just remember these are not laws, the executive branch can not make laws, these are just strongly worded suggestions. He is inviting law suits which will be settled in court, and he will be voted out of office.

  13. Libetard Bob is delusional if he thinks left wing loons like JB don’t support Muslims over Judeo-Christians.

  14. And all you stupid democrats think the talk of your starting a war and that we will not fight are delusional. Push a hair more and see the shooting start.

  15. These democrats are hoping to start a war of civil unrest so they can use martial law. They will start a war.

    • It’s coming- I’ve been saying it for 40 years- I just thought it would be between the races, NOT Americans and Democrats/socialists -we’re not oblivious as to iif – it’s when

    • Bob, It’s NOT ABOUT KEEPING PEOPLE HEALTHY. YOU FRICKEN IDIOT, IT’S ABOUT TRYING TO KEEP PEOPLE IN SO THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEM GETS WEAKER AND THEN WHEN THEY GET EXPOSED TO PEOPLE AGAINST THEY’LL GET SICK AGAIN AND THEN TRY TO PUT THE BLAME ON TRUMP.
      YOU DUMBOCRATS ARE SO DAMN STUPID THE REPUBLICANS ARE GOING TO WIPE DUMBOCRATS RIGHT OUT OF OFFICE. WE DON’T WANT YOU SOCIALISTIC BULLSHIT. MOVE TO CHINA, LIVE THERE INSTEAD. ONCE YOU MOVE, YOU WON’T BE ALLOWED BACK TO OUR LAND OF THE FREE COUNTRY, YOU SOCIALISTIC BASTARD!!

  16. Hey Bob, U need a battery acid enema. You’ll feel much better and no more bullshit will come from your mouth. Have a gr8 day!

  17. GO TO HELL YOU FAT SLOB. TELL ME ARE YOU SHOWING FAVORITISM FOR THE DAMN MUSLIMS AND ARE THEIR MOSQUES OPEN. IF THEY AR OPEN THEN YOU BETTER BACK OFF REAL QUICK. LEAVE OUR CHURCHES ALONE YOU ATHEIST.!!!

    • CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT!

      Christians And Jews Must Stand Up for themselves, Put on The Amour of GOD and FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!!

      TRUMP4EVA!!!

    • Mosques are in the same category. They won’t open for another year either. Which is good. STAY SAFE, STAY HOME!!

  18. Pritzker, you’re a complete idiot, if you think the people are going to keep putting up with your BS!
    The rules don’t seem to apply to you & your family!! I hope the sheep wake up soon! Pay attention to what’s happening in Michigan, JB!

  19. I would like to see Governor Pritzker try to enforce that “law.” I think that he would have a revolution on his hands. It would certainly win in him no political point with the Christians in Illinois when it comes to reelection or any serious need he might have that would require their support.

    Obviously, he is no fan of Christianity which is sad but nevertheless a fact of life. He will need to deal with the Constitution and the courts. I have a hunch he will lose, especially if only Christian churches are closed.

    • You delusional republicunts really think anyone closing down churches to keep people safe is a Muslim? My god, you right-wing nut jobs are stupid.

    • Both of you need to wash your nasty mouths out with soap!

      The guv has NO REAL legal or moral Authority to discriminate this way. He’s just acting like a Petty Tyrant. His discriminatory laws will not hold up in a Court of Law! WE THE PEOPLE WILL PREVAIL!!

      TRUMP4EVA!!!

    • Hey Boob……Please quit using that liberal dimmercrat language, it’s as offensive as you are.

      BTW: WHO said Muslims are closing down churches? All I read above says they must stay closed as well as churches. Boob, do you have reading comprehension issues too?
