(TargetLiberty.org) – A Kentucky pastor is calling on religious leaders of all faiths to hold peaceful assemblies this Sunday. The gatherings are in protest against ongoing bans on acts of worship imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Brian Gibson, the pastor of a megachurch with locations in Kentucky and Texas, said he’s already had an event at his church shut down by health officials. Now he wants pastors, rabbis and imams to stand up for their First Amendment rights.

Gibson says it’s unreasonable that big stores are allowed to open, but churches are supposed to remain closed until much later in the unlocking process. Appearing on Fox & Friends he asked, “When did one hour on Sunday morning become the deadliest hour in America?” Gibson is at the spearhead of a growing protest by religious leaders who say their congregations are being denied something that’s not just important for their spiritual wellbeing – it’s also a constitutional right.
