Church burnt down for ignoring lockdown rules
"Bet you stay home now you hypokrits [sic]," read the misspelled graffiti outside of a burnt down church in Mississippi.
That graffiti, of course, is suspected to have come from the unidentified arsonist. The motive: the church ignored the city's lockdown rules, and continued holding services.
This same church sued the city of Holly Springs over the lockdowns after being cited for holding mass despite city restrictions on how many people could gather, and non-essential businesses.
The lawsuit cites religious freedom guaranteed under the First Amendment, and claims the congregation only held services inside when weather prevented outdoors services. And even then, proper social distancing methods were followed.
