Bob Enyart previews an upcoming Real Science Radio mask segment, showing that in October 2015 Harvard warned NASA about doubling CO2 whereas in October 2020 a prestigious science journal reported that our masks far more than double carbon dioxide. Tune in for more on Friday! Bob also plugs upcoming interviews of a Red Sea Crossing lecturer promoted by the Patterns of Evidence team, and of the ICE special agent whose partner Jaime Zapata was murdered by cartel gunmen. And Bob mentioned the coincidental tally on a Denver (mile high) Bible Church collection deposit slip of exactly $5280 and clarifies that the Colorado church that won this week's U.S. Supreme Court ruling against the government's arbitrary attendance limits was not DBC but a church up north in Eaton, Colorado.
* Colorado Gvt's Motion to Dismiss: Colorado filed their Motion to Dismiss conceding to the Denver Bible Church and Community Baptist Church congregations win, striking down the state's overreaching COVID restrictions on attendance limits and wearing masks during religious services at these churches.
* Colorado's Attorney General Mocks Churches: The U.S. Supreme Court, in the Jack Philips' Masterpiece Cakeshop case, reprimanded the state government for being hostile to believers. Now in their Motion to Dismiss their appeal of the Denver Bible Church win, on page 10 they describe churches as "in the same category... as trash processing." Precious. And intentional. Of course, for our part, we are honored to stand with those who pick up the trash. And of course, a typical garbage man has far more honor than the lawyers working for Colorado's governor's office.
* October News Reports: Pastor Bob and Pastor Joey Rhoad's lawsuit injunction victory has been reported by dozens of outlets including the Denver Post, CNN, Breitbart, Life
* Difference Between DBC & High Plains Lawsuits: An attorney friend of ours, Barry Arrington (who is anti-evolution, anti-abortion, and has represented one of our DBC members who was assaulted while personhood signature-gathering), won a December 2020 case in the U.S. Supreme Court for the High Plains Harvest Church in Eaton (north of Denver). We congratulate Barry and High Plains! Among the differeences between the cases, our Denver Bible Church case argues that churches have greater liberty than mere commercial interests. And just like plaintiffs "judge shop", the Supreme Court can "plaintiff shop" and "case shop". We did appeal to the high court, but they took up the HPHC case instead. Here's a note one of our attorneys, Brad Bergford, wrote to Pastor Bob and some of our BEL listeners:
Good afternoon, gentlemen!
I appreciate the enthusiasm, and it is warranted. As Pastor Bob pointed out, we are in danger if we are satisfied being treated not worse than businesses. After all, businesses are suffocating, and there is no end in sight to the stranglehold being applied to them. It should be noted that because we won an injunction against the enforcement of the mask mandate and the capacity limit on behalf of our churches, and because the tide has been turning slightly in favor of First Amendment protection, our case led directly to the state's "voluntary" lifting of mask mandates and capacity limits in churches. That led to the State abandoning its appeal at the Tenth Circuit. Ironically, the advantage that Barry had in his case and the reason that he was able to get to the Supremes is that he lost at the district court level whereas we won. He appealed to the Tenth Circuit and then to the Supremes. The law is clearly on the side of the approach he has taken, but our aim is to regain the special protection for free exercise set forth in the First Amendment.
So, we rejoice with Barry, but our eyes are on events further into the future, and we have nine more claims to be adjudicated before all is said and done. Please pray for our success as our success is the success of the American people.
Thank you again for your enthusiasm!
J. Brad Bergford
Attorney at Law
Today's Video Resource: Get out of the Matrix
Bob takes on a college professor and her philosophy class in a debate regarding absolutes. Who wins? The students have been taught that nothing is absolutely right or wrong, so Bob asks them if that is absolutely right. And theyve been taught that they can only know that which their five senses have told them, so Bob asks them which of their five senses told them that.
Is the lack of intellectualism in this college class representative of American higher education? You can decide as you view this video, one of Bobs most extraordinary presentations.
