Judge: Louisville church can conduct Easter drive-in service
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A federal judge says the city of Louisville cannot halt a local church’s drive-in church service planned for Easter. On Fire Christian Church had sued Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer and the city after Fischer announced drive-in style religious gatherings were not allowed on Easter. On Saturday, U.S. District Judge Justin Walker sided with the church, saying that the city is prohibited from “enforcing; attempting to enforce; threatening to enforce; or otherwise requiring compliance with any prohibition on drive-in church services at On Fire.” Also Saturday, Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron criticized Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear’s plan to order people into quarantine if they attend in-person religious gatherings.
