Barresi applauds Attorney General Hunter for religious liberty support


BARRESI APPLAUDS ATTORNEY GENERAL HUNTER’S STANCE ON SUPPORTING RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ON NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER 

Oklahoma City -- “Today, we are all united in observance of the National Day of Prayer and in dedicating ourselves to be vigilant about threats to our religious liberties. In the last few weeks we have heard of instances where worshipers were fined or even jailed for attempting to safely assembly and worship God. We must all be vigilant in each of our communities to assure that our civil liberties are not violated in the name of safety. It is appropriate for the CDC and our state to issue guidelines for the reopening of businesses and places of worship and it is equally appropriate for places of worship to adjust their services to follow the guidelines. These do not have to be in conflict.”


“I applaud the action by State Attorney General Mike Hunter's call on Norman Mayor Breea Clark to amend her schedule of opening for establishments that provide for places of worship to delay their opening until May 15 which is later than opening dates for restaurants, gyms, hair salons, massage and tattoo parlors. Her decision is wrong and it goes against state guidelines. It is also yet one more example of why each of us must remain vigilant in protecting our religious liberties.”
