We are praying for peace and I also pray that the Governor will sit down and meet with these folks. I beleive in God, a God of miracles! We all must be in prayer for a dialogue to start with us, the people and the Governor. A leader must communicate with all. Many feel their voices no longer count in New Mexico and in Washington D.C. The Supreme Court sure has turned on us.

The Santa Fe New Mexican is reporting:

Organizers of I Will not comply NM say they will gather Sunday at the Capitol and lock the doors to the building from the outside as a symbolic gesture. They are calling their demonstration “Shut Down the Capital.” Group plans protest calling for Lujan Grisham’s removal

From the groups Facebook Page:

Good morning everyone, tomorrow (Sunday) we go to the Capitol, and I want to thank all in advance, for your courage to do what’s right. This won’t be easy and most likely, it won’t be over quickly.

I, like many of you will be leaving your family to join a cause, that I know in my heart is right. Though it won’t be easy, we are far better off, than those who left their families during the revolutionary war. Fathers and sons left their homes, to an uncertain future and stood the line. They stood that line at times, without food, without boots, without jackets to protect them from the elements. They fought for years under these conditions, in comparison we have it easy. Like them though, we are fighting a tyrant and a corrupt system.

I cannot answer the question for you, whether or not to join this fight, only you can do that. For myself, the answer is clear, I will stand the line.

From the deepest part of my heart, I thank you.

Sincerely,

Stephen Garrett

OUTRAGEOUS: Supreme Court denies Calvary Chapel church in Nevada its Constitutional rights in 5-4 decision. Religious freedom increasingly at risk.

by joelcrosenberg

SupremeCourt(Washington, D.C.) — When Americans vote in November to elect the President, Senate and House of Representatives, the future of religious freedom is going to be a major issue on the ballot.

The next President is likely to have at least one, and possibly two, seats to fill on the Supreme Court. Will they be filled by liberals or conservatives? The freedom of Christians, Jews, Muslims and others to maintain their Constitutional rights to freely practice their faith increasingly appears to hang in the balance.

Consider the latest outrageous decision by the U.S. Supreme Court. It denied a Calvary Chapel evangelical church in Nevada to have more than 50 people meet together for worship and Bible teaching, even though gambling casinos in the state are allowed to welcome many more than 50 people into their establishments.

How is that possible?

“A sharply divided U.S. Supreme Court denied a rural Nevada church’s request late Friday to strike down as unconstitutional a 50-person cap on worship services as part of the state’s ongoing response to the coronavirus,” reported the Associated Press.

“In a 5-4 decision, the high court refused to grant the request from the Christian church east of Reno to be subjected to the same COVID-19 restrictions in Nevada that allow casinos, restaurants and other businesses to operate at 50% of capacity with proper social distancing,” noted the AP. “Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley argued that the hard cap on religious gatherings was an unconstitutional violation of its parishioners’ First Amendment rights to express and exercise their beliefs.”

Four brave Justices dissented from the ridiculous decision, siding with the Calvary Chapel. They included Gorsuch, Alito, Thomas and Kavanaugh.

Justice Alito was absolutely right when he wrote, “The Constitution guarantees the free exercise of religion. It says nothing about the freedom to play craps, or blackjack, [or] feed tokens into a slot machine.”

Likewise, Justice Gorsuch was dead on correct when he wrote, “The world we inhabit today, with a pandemic upon us, poses unusual challenges. But there is no world in which the Constitution permits Nevada to favor Caesar Palace over Calvary Chapel.”
