Police Raid Drive-In Church Service

Absolutely stunning.

Police in Greenville, Mississippi raided the parking lot of Temple Baptist Church during a drive-in prayer service and issued $500 fines to everyone in attendance – including many elderly congregants, reports Tard Starnes.

Pastor Arthur Scott told the Todd Starnes Radio Show that he was astonished by the actions of the police department and the mayor’s office.

“One of the police officers said the mayor wanted to make an example of our church,” the pastor said. “I told them to get some more tickets ready because we will be preaching Sunday morning and Sunday night.”

More recruits for the Lockdown Resistance.



  1. “I told them to get some more tickets ready because we will be preaching Sunday morning and Sunday night.”

    27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them,
    28 saying, "We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man's blood upon us."
    29 But Peter and the apostles answered, "We must obey God rather than men. - Acts 5:27-

  2. You want government to take care of a problem for you? The government will take care of the problem which is you.

  3. Tyrants are their own worst enemy.

  4. Once they get a jury of their peers, the fines will be waived. Jury nullification anyone? They can also start a recall petition.

  5. Ticketing everyone or at least 25 cars is an easy $12,500 maybe even double if there were two in each car. Great optics for the mayor and police department.

  6. Each person ticketed could file a complaint with city hall and the police with their badge numbers (VERY IMPORTANT) which will just create more paperwork for the bureaucracy so that there are records subject to FOIA inquiries and potential lawsuits and potentially make the police more gun-shy especially with other more pressing duties (e.g., coffee and donut breaks) on their plates (pun intended).

  7. Robert,
    Can you communicate to them at all?

    I am a scientist; I have no legal training. We should urge all of those ticketed to plead not guilty; then have them drag it through the municipal court for as long as possible. The trial costs, along with the closing of ranks would be a great push back against these types. I'd think with the close-knit community of these church goers that'd it may be a doable stance.

    1. Sounds like a two-pronged counter-attack, why didn't I think of that too?

  8. The tactics cited above reminded me of Gary North's article on "How To Bring Down the System " ( Clog up the bureaucracy with paperwork. Have fun everyone and Happy Easter.
