Statement from First Liberty Institute on Decision by Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton to Allow In-Person Church Services

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

“We are pleased Texas no longer prohibits in-person religious services.  This clear guidance shows respect for religious liberty, and, as long as churches, synagogues, and other houses of worship follow it, provides that they may resume in-person meetings prudently.”
