Louisiana Attorney General Urges Governor To Reopen Churches
Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is encouraging the state's Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards to reopen churches in the state, numerous sources reported.
In a letter sent to the governor Thursday, Landry said "religious liberty is a bedrock principled right from which our freedom flows," and urged the governor to consider reopening churches after Edwards extended the state's stay-at-home orders through May 15, according to Fox 8.
"As other states begin reopening and unrest in the Legislature continues, I believe many faith-based congregations will begin to meet with or without guidance," Landry wrote.
