In case you missed it over the weekend, a pastor in Mississippi planned to hold a drive-in church service on Easter Sunday. Drive-in services allow people to keep their distance from one another while listening to a sermon from their vehicles.

The local police got wind of the service and showed up ahead of time to block worshippers from participating. They also told the pastor hosting the event that his "rights were suspended" under a statewide, Wuhan coronavirus stay-at-home order.

In Kentucky, congregants were threatened with misdemeanors and police riddled church parking lots with nails. Police also recorded license plate numbers for punishment.

The Department of Justice is concerned about the overreach and will be releasing guidance sometime this week. Members of Congress and everyday Americans are also paying attention.
