California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom is now reaping what he sowed after he shuttered down church services during the recent pandemic, which forced lawsuits against him for discriminating against people of faith.

Life News reports:

U.S. District Court Judge Jesus G. Bernal has ordered Newsom to “cover the legal expenses of Liberty Counsel, a Christian legal organization that filed the lawsuit on behalf of Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry against the Democratic governor of California.”

In a written statement, Liberty Counsel said, “Under the settlement, California may no longer impose discriminatory restrictions upon houses of worship…This is the first state-wide permanent injunction in the country against COVID restrictions on churches and places of worship. Under the agreed state-wide permanent injunction, all California churches may hold worship without discriminatory restrictions.”

Founder of Harvest Rock Church and Harvest International Ministry, Reverend Che Ahn also applauded the settlement, saying that “after nearly a yearlong battle defending our religious freedoms, our lawsuit has reached a permanent settlement in our favor.” He added, “I am thrilled to see the complete reversal of the last discriminatory restrictions against churches in California.”

Now, due to his lockdown, Newsom is feeling a pain in his pocketbook to the tune of $1.35 million for trying to discriminate against people of faith.

“No man who knows he is the wrong can stand up against a man who knows he is in the right and keeps a-coming.” Old Texas Rangers saying.

Newsom should pay up $1.35 million from his personal pocket because it was his illegal order in the first place ! The taxpayers had nothing to do with it .

Unfortunately, Qualified Immunity likely would apply in this situation so that Newsom will be off the hook and the taxpayers will bear the cost.

California and Newsom are meant for each other. I left CA 3 years ago and don’t care if I never see it again. Liberals have ruined that state. Maybe an earthquake will complete the job.

How many out there think that is coming out of his pocket? The taxpayers get stuck again.

True. Does not matter what elected officials do as they don’t personally pay. Same with an HOA. They spend/waste other people’s money.
