Grace Community Church 1 (California)As California continues to clamp down on church meetings, a state judge recently ruled that adult entertainment clubs have a First Amendment right to be open during the ongoing pandemic.

The club owners had argued that adult entertainment is protected free speech – a view first sanctioned by a Supreme Court order in 1973. California Superior Court Judge Joel R. Wohlfeil agreed and ruled the clubs have to be allowed to open while the case winds its way through the courts. 

Meanwhile, Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has put burdensome restrictions on churches and family Thanksgiving gatherings. Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church, which is in an ongoing legal battle with Los Angeles County, says the nation is upside down.

"This is a nation so far down in the sewer of immorality and wickedness that nothing surprises me," he responds. "In fact, I would be shocked if a judge said, 'Open all the churches, and close all the strip clubs.'"

MacArthur has been disregarding California's restrictions on churches in defiance of the governor and local officials. As he told "The Ingraham Angle" on Fox News, he sees the regulations as nothing but a power grab.

"Power-hungry people are using this emergency to gain greater power," he observes. "This is historic. This is nothing new, and if people don't fight back, they're going to fall victim to the intention of whatever this revolution is."

The pastor says history shows that every revolution from Julius Caesar to Hitler took place at a time when the powers of the people in authority were enlarged because of a supposed emergency. The real emergency, he says, is the moral decline of the country.

"You murder the babies in the womb; you try to seduce them into transgender sexual deviation when they're young," he continues. "If they survive that, you corrupt them with a Godless education. If they survive that, you have divorce in the family. And if they grow to be adults, you drown them in a sea of pornography."

MacArthur concludes that America is in a "moral freefall."
