Religious Liberty Expert Statement on Attorney General Barr’s Warning to California Regarding Reopening Churches

Washington, DC—The following statement may be attributed to Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel to First Liberty Institute:

“Attorney General Bill Barr is a great hero to people of faith.  The same people who shop at malls, work in factories, and eat in restaurants go to churches, synagogues, and mosques.  Suggesting shoppers can be trusted to safely social distance, but churchgoers cannot is discrimination.”
