Court Rejects Pastor’s Bid For Prayer Vigil At US Capitol

First, a reminder from yesterday:

Rev. Patrick Mahoney will be seeking injunction relief to conduct his Good Friday Service and prayer vigil at the Capitol. Rev. Mahoney was told last week by the US Capitol Police the Good Friday Service would not be allowed because it was in a “restricted area.” Both Vice-President Kamala Harris and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, acting in their Official Capacities, are defendants in the lawsuit.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: Mahoney is the head of the Christian Defense Coalition, which in the past has paraded a “living nativity scene” (including a camel and a donkey) before the Supreme Court. He’s also affiliated with Roy Moore. In 2012, he led protests outside the Democratic Convention in Charlotte. In 2009, he joined a raft of hate group leaders in protesting the just-passed Hate Crimes Act outside DOJ headquarters.
