With Church Restricted and Casinos Open, Worshipers Pack Gambling Floor To Praise God

(Disrn)”Evangelicals for Trump,” a group campaigning for the president’s re-election, held a large worship event at a Las Vegas casino and hotel Thursday evening, circumventing Nevada’s ban on large in-person worship services.

The event took place at the Ahern Hotel and Convention Center and featured Trump’s spiritual adviser Paula White, megachurch Pastor Jentezen Franklin, Pastor Jack Hibbs of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, and several others.

Chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition Ralph Reed posted a video of the event titled “Evangelicals for Trump: Praise, Prayer and Patriotism.”

“Packed house at #EvangelicalsForTrump prayer & praise event in Las Vegas. NV Governor banned church services but casinos can operate at 50% capacity. So we are praying in a casino.”

The state of Nevada began phase one of reopening on May 9. While retail stores and restaurants were allowed to operate at 50% capacity, the ban on in-person services stayed intact.

While the state eventually allowed in-person worship as long as attendance didn’t exceed 50 people, Calvary Chapel Dayton Valley filed a lawsuit stating that Nevada’s restriction on places of worship was unconstitutional.
