Gabriel Rench, an Idaho Deacon who defied his city’s lockdown order in 2020, has finally received vindication. Courts have ordered that the city of Moscow, Idaho must pay him and fellow congregants a settlement of $300,000.
Rench was among a handful of patriotic leaders in 2020 and 2021 who was arrested for exercising his God-given rights. In September of 2020, Christ Church congregants protested masking and lockdown mandates that prohibited their ability to worship freely. When Rench organized a peaceful protest outside of the Moscow City Hall, he was arrested.
This story went viral at the time, and had earned the condemnation of President Trump on Twitter.
DEMS WANT TO SHUT YOUR CHURCHES DOWN, PERMANENTLY. HOPE YOU SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING. VOTE NOW! https://t.co/dqvqz6b1WD— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2020
He along with two other protestors sued the city and won their case earlier this year. Just last week, a judge finalized the $300,000 settlement.
Rench is one of the few patriots who have been vindicated. Lisa Hanson similarly defied lockdown orders with her bar in Albert Lea, Minnesota. Instead of receiving a cash settlement, she spent over 90 days in jail.
There is a growing faction of power-hungry leftists that want to control you and your family. If our American Republic is to last, we cannot let them win.
Rench will be coming on The Truth Hurts Show on Thursday, August 3rd to discuss his legal victory. You can tune in live at 1:00pm here.
