VA Catholics Risk Prison

Up to 1 year in prison and $2,500 fine

While public Masses are stopped across the United States, Democrat politicians are looking to throw Catholics in prison.

According to Democrat Virginia governor and abortion activist Ralph Northam, Catholics gathering in groups larger than 10 people for Mass or other devotions can go to prison and be fined.

He issued the executive order on Monday, declaring "All public and private in-person gatherings of 10 or more individuals are prohibited."

He declared it a class 1 misdemeanor, calling for "confinement in jail for not more than 12 months and a fine of not more than $2,500, either or both."

CNSNews Editor-in-Chief Terrence Jeffrey confirmed with the governor's office that Catholics would face the full brunt of the law, saying "Virginians now live in a state where holding a church service attended by 11 people has been unilaterally declared a crime by the governor."

But Northam's executive order violates the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution that says: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ... or the right of the people peaceably to assemble."

Northam is no stranger to violating human rights.

Last year he declared on a radio show that the fate of children born alive during botched abortions should be decided by the mother and the abortionist, not that it was a person deserving life-saving medical care.

The executive order is being viewed by Catholics and other citizens as confirmation of what many strongly suspect: When Democrats get power, they become tyrants.
