Video: Kentucky Church Packed for Easter Service – Governor Sends State Troopers And Nails Appeared To Have Been Dumped At The Entrances To Block Cars From Entering

Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul wrote that his state’s Democratic governor should “take a step back” regarding Easter church service coronavirus measures.

This week, Kentucky Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear announced Easter weekend measures for Kentucky churches and other mass gatherings that included recording license plates of church attendees and turning them into health departments so they can make the attendees “self-quarantine” for two weeks.

“Taking license plates at church?” Paul tweeted Friday night. “Quarantining someone for being Christian on Easter Sunday? Someone needs to take a step back here.”

It seems that the governor didn’t bother to listen to Rand Paul but the people also didn’t listen to the Governor.

Maryville Baptist Church in Hillview, Kentucky drew what seemed to be nearly a full house Sunday morning. A reporter for Louisville’s Courier-Journal captured images in the parking lot … where you could hear the pastor leading the congregation in song.

Kentucky State Police were circling the parking lot of a church that’s packed for Easter service — defying state orders — and issuing warnings, if not citations.

Following Beshear’s license plate order, which applies anyone who attends an in-person church service or any mass gathering, police will refer those motorists to local health departments, which will then order 14-day quarantines – although several attendees told The Courier Journal they have no intention of following the order.

The notifications also say the health department will contact the car owner, and his or her family members, and require them to quarantine for 14 days.

Unclear, if they’re issuing tickets, but the notice does warn the churchgoers they may be committing a misdemeanor by violating the state’s emergency order.


Troopers have used community connections to speak with pastors to advise that “they can worship while doing so safely and within proper guidelines.” Lawson said it’s been “very non-confrontational.”

Video below:

Shortly before the service began, volunteers were clearing the parking lot of nails, apparently left there by someone who wanted to discourage the service … which is violating Kentucky’s safer-at-home order. Gatherings of more than 10 people are illegal.

Rev. Jack Roberts had to call for help to clean up piles of nails scattered at the entrances to the church parking lot.

The nails appeared to have been dumped at the entrances to block cars from entering the church that is in the Bullitt County community of Hillview, just south of the Jefferson County line.
