The leader of a large worship gathering in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, attended by thousands of Christians, said that the city has launched an effort to “selectively target Christians for harassment and punishment” after the health department said the organizers of the event would be penalized.
Sean Feucht organized the “Let Us Worship” event held Sunday evening on the steps of the Metro Courthouse, and videos showed thousands of people close together without masks on, WKRN-TV reported.
Following the event, spokesman Brian Todd of the Metro Public Health Department said it is investigating and would “pursue appropriate penalties against the organizer.”
“We have worked very hard to slow the spread of COVID by taking a measured approach to protect the community,” Todd said in a statement.
“The Health Department is very concerned by the actions that took place at the event and we are investigating and will pursue appropriate penalties against the organizer.”
