Maryville Baptist Church files lawsuit against Governor Beshear

The Maryville Baptist Church in Bullitt County has officially filed a lawsuit against Governor Andy Beshear.
The governor had warned churches not to hold in-person services during the holiday in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Both suits claim Beshear specifically targeted the church by ordering parishioners to quarantine.
The governor says thousands of Kentucky churches found ways to observe Easter safely, and that he’s just asking for Maryville Baptist to do the same.
