(Protestia) On September 23, 2020, police in Moscow, ID, arrested three members of Christ Church, the church led by Pastor Doug Wilson, because they were singing hymns in public without social distancing in violation of the city’s newly created Emergency Public Health Ordinance No. 20.03. The arrests occurred at a Psalm Sing event where around 150 people, primarily congregants, gathered to sing three acapella hymns and then the doxology at Moscow City Hall in an event organized by the Church.

One of the men arrested was Gabe Rench, host of the Cross-Politic TV show, Co-Founder of the Fight Laugh Feast Network, and a deacon at Christ Church.
