There’s no hiding it, the city of Seattle’s leadership has a strong disdain for Christians.
A prayer rally was scheduled to take place on Labor Day at the city’s popular Gas Works Park but, out of the blue the city decided to close the park for the day.
On September 4th a notice was posted by the city declaring the park would be temporarily closed for the day “anticipated crowding that could impact the public health of residents.”
“Out of concerns for the safety of all those who visit Gas Works Park we have opted to close the entire park for the day,” Seattle Parks and Recreation noted.
The city that has allowed leftists to riot and even take over a section of the city isn’t allowing christians to gather peacefully outdoors. The city claimed it “does not allow unpermitted public events to take place in Seattle parks.”
Seattle Parks and Recreation declaration also jabbed at those wishing to attend the prayer service.
“As first amendment gatherings have taken place during the pandemic, the City of Seattle continues to reinforce the Governor’s guidelines should folks choose to attend an event: stay home if sick, wear your mask, and keep at least six feet of space between yourself and others,” the city said before closing off the park with barricades.
Over the holiday weekend unpermitted rallies were held in parks all over the city. The “Trump/Pence Out Now” march from Westlake Park and a rally was also held at Cal Anderson Park (former site close to CHAZ) to “protest the reprehensible treatment of Seattle’s most marginalized communities by the Seattle Police Department.”
“The City of Seattle acknowledged that parks ‘provide critical physical and mental health supports to our community,’ and reiterated their policy guidelines for facilitating ‘first amendment gatherings.’ but still chose to temporarily shut down the entire park rather than risk Christians gathering for an open-air worship service,” Sean Feucht, a Christian musician and missionary who planned to host the rally.
Seattle’s leaders didn’t admit they closed the park to stop the prayer service but the graffiti found on the wall said it all.
“Seattle is a haven for leftists and those who sympathize with them.”
But that didn’t stop Feucht, he just relabeled the event and held it in the streets on Monday evening. He called it a “Worship Protest.”
In a Facebook post Feucht wrote:
“LOL. And Seattle governmental leaders tried to silence the church by barricading a park. They grossly underestimated the fire and determination of the body. Tonight was a moment we will never forget. We’ll tell our children’s children that we took a stand. The church gathered next to a bulldozer and thousands showed up. We can’t go back from her,” he concluded.
Feucht showed off a big smile on Fox News Tuesday, celebrating a successful Christian protest which defied the city’s apparent targeting of Christians.
“Last night it was pretty easy, we just pivoted and called it a worship protest, so now technically it’s legal, and we went to the streets,” Feucht told Fox & Friends.
