FACTS

    Sean Feucht, a pastor and former Congressional candidate from California, led a Christian worship gathering which was said to have drawn over 12,000 people in Sacramento on Sunday. Feucht said the “Let Us Worship” events happening nationwide are a “worship protest” against the infringement of religious rights he believes is currently happening in the country. The gatherings started after Feucht, head of Christian political organization Hold The Line, started a “Let Us Worship” petition calling on California to let churches gather and worship together. While in-person, outdoor gatherings are not currently prohibited by the California Department of Public Health, most attendees violated California orders which require face masks and social distancing.

    LEFT

    The Left condemns the “Christian concerts.” CBS News reported that infectious disease specialist Dr. Dean Blumberg stated the Sacramento event was a “high-risk gathering” and noted, “That’s really a recipe for transmission and can lead to further outbreaks not only among the people who are in attendance but their contacts, too.” The Sacramento Bee wrote that it was “exactly the type of gathering Gov. Gavin Newsom urged residents to avoid ahead of the Labor Day weekend.” One article, referring to the gatherings as “plague ridden literal circus doings,” harshly condemned the “super spreader events.”

    RIGHT

    The Right is largely in support of the events. California Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove spoke at the event in Sacramento on Sunday.

    “I am extremely disappointed by the Governor’s guidelines for reopening Houses of Worship, especially as today we remember those who bravely sacrificed for our freedoms, including those guaranteed by the First Amendment.”

    Shannon Grove, Minority Leader of the California State Senate

    The Right argues that officials are hypocritical in allowing protests, which have numbered in the tens of thousands – all the while denying that they have “led to a spike in coronavirus cases – but prohibiting religious and other gatherings.
