Last month, Kentucky’s Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron and Danville Christian Academy, a private religious school, sued the state’s governor, Andy Beshear, for what they claimed was a violation of their religious freedom.
Beshear had signed an executive order prohibiting public and private K- schools from meeting in-person for a few weeks because the virus was out of control… and that’s it. That’s what the Christians claimed was discrimination. They said the order included “no accommodations for religious education” — as if religious schools were immune to COVID. It’s not like Beshear specifically punished religious schools. He issued a blanket ban on all schools meeting in person.
