Via press release:
Thomas More Society Special Counsel Jenna Ellis and Charles LiMandri filed suit in the Superior Court of the State of California County of Los Angeles on behalf of Pastor John MacArthur and Grace Community Church against Governor Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other California and Los Angeles County public health officials.
The suit seeks to prohibit California from enforcing its unconstitutional and onerous coronavirus pandemic regulations against Grace Community Church and seeks a judgment that the health orders violate the California Constitution.
Ellis said, “We hoped that Los Angeles County would see its error on its own, but after attempted negotiations with their counsel, California is still intent on targeting churches—specifically, Grace Community Church. Pastor MacArthur and the Board of Elders will stand firm in their leadership and resolve that church is essential, and California has no legitimate power to enforce such onerous and unconstitutional restrictions against the fundamentally protected right to freely participate in church.”

“The [Supreme Court] ignored the immorality of homosexuality and set the groundwork for open celebration of homosexuality and all kinds of deviant sexual behavior with any coupling or grouping.”

A quote about LGBTQ people from Trump lawyer @JennaEllisEsq
“While their conduct is vile and abominable, certainly we cannot forget that they are human beings, made in the image of God. Unlike gorillas.”
