People, this is only the beginning. There is no possible way you can spread coronavirus or COVID-19. It is a lie perpetrated on the people by Big Pharma, the CDC, lying politicians, Bill Gates, and the corrupt media. For those of you wondering, I ask, why are they all on the same page on this? It’s to infringe on your liberties and to usurp non-delegated authority. Such is the case with Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas, who has pushed a Nazi-like policy, not law, that requires churches to maintain “lists” of those attending.
I’ve got four words every legitimate elder in a church, not a hireling, should tell this mayor: “We will not comply.”
The policy we put out regarding several things that the mayor presumed to usurp authority over.
Of course, this is based on a declaration of a non-existent state of emergency, you know, those things tyrants declare to advance their lawless agendas?
The mayor issued his latest emergency orders here, orders which he was never given authority to issue.
These are to take effect at 12:01am on May 6, 2020.
Here’s the mayor’s policy from the City of Kansas City website:
What changes from previous orders?
Kansas City will begin operating under a “10/10/10 rule.” The primary changes are as follows:
- Non-essential business operations that are not open to the public can resume in-person and delivery operations, provided they operate in accordance with guidance provided by the Health Department and allow workers to maintain social distancing.
- Most non-essential business operations that are open to the public (such as non-essential retail stores and personal care services) can resume in-person operations provided business operators follow the “10/10/10 rule.” The 10/10/10 rule specifies that these businesses must limit the number of individuals on-site (inclusive of employees and customers) to no more than 10 percent of building occupancy or 10 people (whichever is larger), and record the names, contact information, and approximate entry/exit time of all customers who are on premises for more than 10 minutes.
- In-person religious gatherings (including weddings and funerals) may resume, subject to the 10/10/10 rule (if held inside) or limited to 50 people outside, provided social distancing precautions are followed and event organizers maintain records of all attendees.
“Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined Nazi-like measures designed to surveil, track and spy upon what was once a free American people,” states Liberty Council, founder and Chairman Matt Staver, who didn’t mince words. “That is exactly what Kansas City’s misguided government officials are now demanding.”
Metro Voice reports:
The 10/10/10 rule is based on 10 people or 10 percent of the allowable number prescribed in the fire code, but only for those who remain in the building for longer than 10 minutes.
But it is not the limit on people that has drawn the most concern, but the record keeping. The new rule requires all churches to “record the names, contact information, and approximate entry/exit time of all customers who are on premises for more than 10 minutes.” That includes churches, synagogues, and mosques along with businesses. Only medical facilities and grocery stores are exempt.
Rich Bott, President of the locally based Bott Radio Network with 113 stations in 13 states, says it’s a violation of longstanding guarantees in the Bill of Rights that protect religious activity from government oversight and control.
“This is outrageous on the part of the KC municipal government officials. They are treating churches the same as businesses for COVID contact tracing purposes,” Bott told the Metro Voice. “This is a massive overreach violating the sanctity of churches and the privacy of their attendees. This must not go unchallenged.”
Liberty Council agrees that the policy, aimed at reopening the nation shut down from the coronavirus pandemic, goes too far and has ominous overtones from the darkest days of the past.
In a letter to supporters on Friday, Liberty Council’s Staver described the actions in Missouri’s largest city as “attacks.”
“These attacks on our churches cannot stand. The backbone of our country relies on our constitutionally guaranteed ability to worship and serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” Staver wrote.
Liberty Council also alleges that churches must turn over their “membership lists,” something that the City denies.
While the mayor’s office claims that isn’t the entire picture, and that even though they are required to make lists, they remain in their possession, I ask, then why demand they make lists? Furthermore, this is not law and cannot be enforced lawfully, but you can bet when push comes to shove they will seek to enforce policy unlawfully.
“We are not asking that churches provide a list immediately to the city,” Morgan Said, director of communications for Mayor Lucas told Metro Voice. “Churches keep the list and only if a member tests positive, and that member attended a church function, would the church provide a list to the city.”
Did you see the hook there? Those who test positive.
We know that 80% of those testing positive are false-positives.
It’s just a way for government to be involved in the jurisdiction of the church, of whom there is only one King, and that’s the Lord Jesus Christ.
Metro Voice added:
Said told Metro Voice that the church or other religious institution keeps the record for only 30 days, “Unless, God forbid, someone tests positive, the church can destroy the list.”
Said also referred to a clarification issued by the Mayor’s office that provided additional guidance for how many people can be in a church at one time.
“Churches must abide by the 10/10/10 rule just like businesses and other organizations,” stated Said. “Church capacity is determined by the structure’s fire code limits.”
That means a large church that seats 3,000 could potentially host a service of 300. A church of 300 could host 30 but those numbers also include the church staff.
Again, the mayor has zero authority to tell the church how to conduct itself when it comes together… none, zero, zip, nada.
Give these people a rope and they’ll wanna be a cowboy! This must stop and it’s up to the churches to politely, but forcefully, say, “We will not comply.”
