Reasons I’m voting for Rebecca Kleefisch on August 9, #35: Stop the possibility of church closures in a pandemic


The morning of April 12, 2020. Easter Sunday. We watched WISN-TV Channel 12’s live broadcast of Mass from St. John Cathedral in downtown Milwaukee.

Incredibly sad doesn’t begin to describe the emotion felt as cameras captured row after row of empty chairs on the holiest day of the year.

Having shut down most of the state, Gov. Tony Evers stole worshippers’ coveted opportunity to celebrate Christ’s Resurrection. Had anyone wanted to visit a strip club that same day Evers made sure those establishments were open.

Rebecca has stated, “The pandemic reminded us our first liberty, the free exercise of religion, hangs by a delicate thread. The Wisconsin Constitution promises, ‘The right of every person to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of conscience shall never be infringed.’ We seem to have forgotten that principle for a while. Government should never again declare certain businesses essential or life-sustaining while denying the soul-sustaining work of in-person religious gatherings.”
