Response to the Accusation that Maine's Governor Violated the Constitution

Dec 14 2020

No churches were closed. Ours met slightly MORE often than earlier. We just met on line instead of in person. Our budget actually got BETTER during this time, and we lost nobody when we returned to live services. The government has often intervened in the 'freedom' of religion, as it always has with all our freedoms. (Can't yell "fire" in a crowded theatre). There are three litmus tests for whether or not restrictions are religion are justifiable: All governmental restrictions on churches must be (i) laws of general applicability (that is applicable to all businesses and institutions and not just religious activities); (ii) they must concern a compelling governmental interest; and (iii) they must be narrowly tailored to meet that interest. These restrictions meet all these criteria. Christians should be the first to willingly do what they can to save the lives of our frail and elderly. By and large, the conservative church has been a very poor witness during this time. There is more to following Jesus than making sure we aren't inconvenienced.
