Kentucky Church Parking Lot Boobytrapped with Nails! …Police Take Down Licence Plates of Church Attendees, Leave Harassing Notes on Cars!

Maryville Baptist Church in Kentucky was targeted by both police and protesters on Sunday as they defiantly held Easter service.

Prior to the start of services, Rev. Jack Roberts found piles of nails scattered at the entrances to the 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,” the Courier Journal reports.

Kentucky State Police also made an appearance at the church, recording the license plates and placing notices on the roughly 50 cars in the parking lot. The notices said that those in the car and everyone in their household must now self quarantine for fourteen days.

As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, Maryville Baptist was refusing to back down after Democrat Governor Andy Beshear announced that the state “will be recording the license plates of those who show up to any mass gatherings and provide that information to the local health departments, who will in turn order those individuals to be quarantined for 14 days.”

“Politicians need to stick to trying to figure a way to steal our money and leave the spiritual life of America to the ministry of those God called to preach the WORD,” Rev. Roberts wrote in a Facebook post about his plan to open for Easter.

Sgt. Josh Lawson of KSP told the Courier-Journal that Maryville was the only church they knew of in the state where license plates are being taken and that it was done per order of the governor.

The newspaper reports that earlier this week, the Baptist congregation also received a state-backed order from the Bullitt County Health Department to cease in-person gatherings “immediately.”

“If you read the Constitution of the United States, if you read the constitution of the state of the Kentucky, they both say that (Beshear) is infringing on the church’s rights,” Roberts said earlier this week.

Both Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Thomas Massie have condemned the governor’s order while sharing the Gateway Pundit’s prior reporting.
