“ This is an alarming case of extreme governmental overreach,” Thomas More Society Special Counsel Christopher Ferrara, who is representing the priest and the rabbi, told Life Site News. “Order 107 is beset by vagaries, ambiguous ‘clarifications,’ and double standards. The alleged enforcement of this troublesome order has violated Reverend Robinson’s and Rabbi Knopfler’s constitutional rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments. These religious leaders were persecuted. Their rights to the free exercise of religion, their freedom of speech, assembly, and expressive association were trampled upon.”
Ferrara explained the absurdity of the fact that people can sit in office buildings, but not churches, with the same amount of people present.
