Gov. Says Church Can’t Meet at Their Building, So They Take Their Congregation to Walmart Instead
In the midst of a massive, never-before-seen persecution against the church in the United States in the name of “public health,” leftist state and local governments have launched an orchestrated attack on God’s people by deeming them “non-essential” and banning them from worshiping.
While abortion clinics, liquor stores, smoke shops, and big box retailers like Walmart have had little to no restrictions placed on them during the coronavirus pandemic, anything perceived as a threat to a totalitarian government — such as the right to worship freely, the right to bear arms, or the right to free speech and press — have been all but completely demolished. One church that stands out in particular is Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, California, where the pastor, John MacArthur, has been threatened with thousands of dollars in fines and even prison time for continuing to hold worship services against the government restrictions.
As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

But another church has decided to take a different approach. Since they aren’t allowed to meet in their own building for worship, they decided to take their congregation to Walmart where there have been no restrictions on gathering.
