Religious leaders weigh defiance if they're asked to close church doors again

As an increasing number of churches reopen nationwide, religious leaders who defied governors' orders by resuming in-person services early are considering what to do if states close down again in the fall.

Many churches shut down voluntarily in March, and even the majority of those who did not closed after governments either required it or strongly encouraged them to do so. But now that shutdowns have dragged on, provoking lawsuits as well as three interventions from the Justice Department, some churches have become more wary of their governments.
