GOV. CUOMO ALLOWS HOUSES OF WORSHIP TO REOPEN WITH UP TO 25 PERCENT CAPACITY

The Recorder

New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, which advocates for evangelical Christians, has objected to the church closures on religious freedom grounds, but called a limited re-opening a step forward.

“We know that pastors and churches can be trusted to take appropriate safety precautions,” said the Rev. Jason McGuire of Rochester, the organization’s executive director. “While we would prefer a more rapid rollback of the state’s temporary limits on religious gatherings, our organization appreciates that this positive step toward our churches has been taken.”
