The Christian Post reports:
A group of Republican U.S. senators have asked President Donald Trump to withhold COVID-19 relief from states that wrongfully keep churches closed amid the pandemic.
In an official letter sent out to the president, the senators explained that there were “many state and local government leaders” that were violating religious freedom.
The letter was signed by Senators Mike Lee of Utah, Mike Braun of Indiana, Josh Hawley of Missouri, Steve Daines of Montana, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi, Roger Wicker of Mississippi, James Lankford of Oklahoma, and Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
NEW: @SenMikeLee joined nine other U.S. senators in signing a plea to @realDonaldTrump requesting additional measures to ensure religious institutions “reopen with appropriate CDC implemented guidelines.”
