Chicago Pastor Says Mayor Sent Police To Shut Down Sunday Services

Courtney Lewis, the pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church, says he was in the middle of his sermon when he heard loud banging on front doors. It was the police.

Pastor Lewis wrote a letter to U.S. Attorney John Lausch pleading for help and protection against the city's mayor Lori Lightfoot.

He writes:

“They came with 3 squad cars two unmarked Durango’s and a Mayor representative’s car. Like the Soviet styled KGB they knocked on our locked doors; the only thing she hasn’t done “yet" is beat the doors down and arrest our members...
Mayor Lightfoot is defiant of the US Constitution and our freedom to worship. Mayor Lightfoot has a history of defying the law. NO. D-00-002/D-00-001...
Our church has gone out of its way to follow CDC Guidelines and we have cooperated fully having online services, outdoor services, and practicing all social distancing requirements...
We are trying to follow the laws of man as much as reasonably possible but when the laws of man conflict with the laws of God I as a Pastor have a duty to follow the laws of God. We will not be intimidated by this overhanded government bully but we are requesting the assistance of our President and our justice department in correcting the grave miscarriage of the law.
If it were not for a Chicago church practicing and reaching others I personally would be one of the people perpetuating the violence on the streets of Chicago as I grew up on the streets of Chicago until I was reached for Christ through a church meeting together not an online service.”
