Abbott bans Texas government from closing places of worship with religious freedom law


(Worthy News) – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed a law banning state agencies and public officials from closing houses of worship.

The Republican governor announced he had approved the bill on Tuesday, tweeting, “The First Amendment right to freedom of religion shall never be infringed.”

The legislation comes after the widespread closure of churches, synagogues, and mosques as COVID-19 spread across the United States. Services deemed “nonessential,” including houses of worship, were shut down as states implemented lockdowns in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus in March 2020.
