As you know, there are social distancing rules and product/service bans in many states in response to the coronavirus (no matter how ridiculous some of them may be).
In one town in Mississippi, the mayor has outlawed church services, including the kind where people drive in and listen from their cars. Here’s video of one such service being shut down:
Video from Pastor Hamilton of King James Bible Baptist Church in Greenville, MS. Church tried the “drive-in” method of holding services & were targeted due to the Mayor issuing an order prohibiting such services. Watch as an officer tells the Pastor that his rights are suspended. pic.twitter.com/zLdT6Qd8ew

Of course it’s not getting out of hand, why do you ask? *Eye roll*
Your Freedom of Religion "is suspended." Man, the wheels are coming off out there. https://t.co/a1hFWy88cN

Well, this sure rubs me the wrong way!

Keep in mind that even Christians who take this seriously and do the right things are being targeted.
Ask why. https://t.co/PBCDSp9c5G

The second wave of this disease will be far worse than the first because government is big, dumb, and dangerous.
People are doing an amazing job of voluntarily taking mitigation actions but thugs in government can't help themselves.
There will be less cooperation next time. https://t.co/4Lelxhioxn

More stupid, mindless Quarantine Theater. Why are government people and law enforcement being like this. https://t.co/3c86nATu04

And that’s already starting. A different church in Mississipi that was ticketed for holding a drive-in church service. Both have indicated plans to sue the city of Greenville:
"Government is clearly overstepping its authority when it singles out churches for punishment, especially in a ridiculous fashion like this."https://t.co/DYzoyx1SzT
