This week, Christian actor Kirk Cameron partnered with "Sing It Louder USA" to host an outdoor peaceful protest against COVID-19 restrictions. Participants, many of whom were unmasked, stood in a mall parking lot and sang Christmas carols together.
On Wednesday, a California judge held a San Jose church and its pastor in contempt and fined them $55,000. The church and pastor seemingly violated a restraining order that prohibited them from surpassing a 100 person limit on indoor gatherings due to COVID-19.
In an attempt to skirt around California state restrictions on in-person gatherings at houses of worship, several pastors removed their ties and jackets during worship services, effectively deeming the churches "temporary strip clubs."
