According to Liberty Counsel's Matt Staver, whose group is representing the plaintiffs, Chicago officials told these churches that they are now "public nuisances" for refusing to abide by Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) orders banning large gatherings.
Even as rioters and looters were allowed to storm cities like Chicago and burn large swaths of them to the ground in the aftermath of the George Floyd saga, the government in charge of Chicago is laser-focused on going after religious groups and trying to stamp them out of existence for supposedly putting the public at risk of "infection."
According to the city of Chicago, it now "has the power and duty to cause all nuisances affecting the health of the public to be abated." The city has also threatened a "summary abatement," which means it could try to raze the two churches' facilities if they refuse to comply with its orders.
"We are very disappointed with all of this, including not being considered as essential in the beginning, as a church," stated Joe Wyrostek, the pastor of Metro Praise International, one of the two churches being targeted.
Reverend Cristian Ionescu, the other pastor being represented in the case, says his church has received multiple citations for violating Chicago's Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) policies, none of which went through the proper channels of becoming law, and are thus unconstitutional by default.

During a recent appearance on the "Todd Starnes Radio Show," Staver explained that his group is seeking an emergency injunction against the city of Chicago. The hope is that the case will make it all the way to the Supreme Court, with a motion for an injunction already headed to the desk of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
If all goes as planned, Justice Kavanaugh will issue the injunction against the city of Chicago allowing area churches to resume services until the matter can be definitively decided upon at the highest level of the court system.
Keep in mind that Chicago saw its worst day of violence on the last day of May with a shocking 18 murders committed in just 24 hours. This suggests that black-on-black murders are the real public nuisance in Chicago, not church services.
But Chicago is more worried about religious people gathering to sing and hear the Word of God preached, which is why it is now focusing its taxpayer-funded resources on spying, surveillance, and snitch efforts aimed at shutting down churches for good.
Similar attacks on Christianity are taking place all the way down in Louisiana as well, where area churches are being told to hold off on services or else be in "violation" of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) orders.
Reverend Tony Spell of Life Tabernacle Church in Central, Louisiana, was actually put on house arrest, ankle bracelet and all, for daring to obey God's command to not forsake the gathering of the saints rather than the state's command to stay home forever in order to stay "safe."
"This is part of a nationwide trend of left-wing government bureaucrats using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to attack Christianity," warns Shane Trejo, writing for Big League Politics.
