A local Mesquite Pastor, Duke Taber of The Mesquite Worship Center, held a Church service yesterday in direct defiance of Gov. Sisolak’s quarantine orders limiting more than 10 people from gathering. Taber called the order illegal and unconstitutional. Taber cited a study done by USC claiming the mortality rate of CV19 was overblown by the news and governor. Taber held a church service on Sunday at 10am yesterday and said he will continue to hold church services. Taber went on to declare “According to Scripter, it’s our duty to challenge illegal orders. These are orders not laws and they violate our Constitution rights.” Taber stated “By what authority does the government declare the church non-essential? The Church is a place where people turn for help and for comfort in a climate of fear and uncertainty. In a time of crisis, people are fearful and in need of comfort and community, more than ever before.” Pastor Taber announced his Sunday service at a Rally organized by Mesquite City Council Woman Annie Black on Saturday demanding businesses be allowed to open back up. Local Republican Assemblyman Chris Edwards was a no show. While, on Easter, many Clark County Pastors held drive in Easter Services, so far no Churches have defied Sisolak’s direct orders and actually opened their doors and held services until yesterday.
