Just two days after the U.S. Department of Justice sent a letter to Governor Gavin Newsom stating that his reopening plan discriminates against churches, over a thousand California religious leaders say they will resume in-person services on May 31st. If they do so, they'll be defying the Governors stay-at-home order.

Attorney Robert Tyler, who has sued Newsom, said Wednesday that more than 1,200 pastors have signed a "declaration of essentiality" that announces their plan to reopen at the end of the month. Tyler expects as many as three-thousand churches across the state could have in-person services on that same day.
