There are a lot of things residents of Kentucky are allowed to do — visit the movie theater, tour a distillery, work out at a gym, bet at a gambling parlor, attend a wedding, cheer on the Wildcats or Cardinals, shop and go to work — but all of Kentucky’s religious schools are ordered closed by Gov. Andy Beshear.
This despite the fact parents can still send their children to daycare or preschool. And college students are still attending classes.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron and Danville Christian School are standing up against this order. Cameron said that private religious schools should be allowed to be open under Beshear’s current orders.
Roger Byron, the attorney for Danville Christian School, told Fox News that the government must treat religious gatherings of people just as well as it treats other gatherings.
“A government can almost never apply restrictions to religious gatherings that it doesn’t also apply to other gatherings,” Byron said. “Yet in Kentucky, almost everything is allowed in person, but private religious K-12 schools have been closed.”
Beshear claims that allowing children to go to school would endanger the “health and lives of Kentucky children, educators and families.”
Of course, Dr. Anthony Fauci recently called for kids returning to class.
Byron laid out all of the different things students can do in Kentucky under the current orders from Beshear.
“What can they not do? They cannot attend a Bible class at a private religious school,” he said. “That is not what the First Amendment requires.”
Beshear has been asked to respond to the Supreme Court by today.
