Rand Paul and Thomas Massie Rip Kentucky Governor for Tracking License Plates of Easter Church Attendees
Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Thomas Massie openly criticized the governor of their home state of Kentucky after he announced a plan to impose a mandatory quarantine of people attending Easter church services and recording their license plate numbers.
Taking license plates at church? Paul tweeted late Friday following reports that Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear would be monitoring who goes to church on Easter. Quarantining someone for being Christian on Easter Sunday? Someone needs to take a step back here.
Beshear said during a Friday news conference that police will record license plate numbers of those who attend mass gatherings of any kind, including church services, and health officials will take that information to impose mandatory 14-day quarantines.
This is the only way we can ensure that your decision doesnt kill someone else, Beshear said.
What the actual hell? Massie said on Twitter, posting the same Gateway Pundit link as Paul.
Parishioners across the country have been grappling with the stay- at-home orders and trying to find ways to worship with their communities.
In Kansas, a legal dispute has resulted from Republicans and Democrats disagreeing on how to handle church services during the pandemic. In Mississippi, churchgoers were fined $500 for listening to a church service on the radio in their cars in a church parking lot. That altercation sparked a lawsuit as well.
When I lived in suburban Chicago I was working security for this guy that had a bar business not far from where I lived.
One night I saw a guy reach across the bar and grab a beer from the ice.
I walked over there and took the beer from the guy on the bar stool and the beer from his buddy and set them on the bar. I grabbed the guy sitting on the bar stool by his clothes and picked him up and moved him 5 or 6 feet before his feet hit the ground.
Then I hollered over to the door, "Check the other guy's jacket!" He had a beer stuck in the sleeve of his jacket.
I wonder how long they had been doing that before they got caught.
The bar owner worked full time in a bank nearby and he maxed out three credit cards. He missed some kind of balloon payment on the bar business and the bar business went back to the original owner.
It must have been the payments on those credit cards that hurt him.
