Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said on Thursday that the Justice Department’s repeated interventions in religious liberty cases prompted him to reopen churches in the state this week.
“The Department of Justice has made very clear to a number of states that peoples’ ability to access church and practice their faith is a constitutional question that they are pushing people at the state level pretty hard on,” Baker told WGBH News. “I couldn’t ignore that.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Baker, who announced Monday that churches could resume services on Friday, said that asking them to close “was the right thing to do, but I hated doing it.” Churches in Massachusetts had been limited to Baker’s 10-person cap on public gatherings.
