CALIFORNIA CHURCH CAVED OR CONQUERED? North Valley Baptist Church faced more than $50,000 in fines for holding indoor services in defiance of Gov. Gavin Newsome’s draconian Covid restrictions.

Now the church is meeting outdoors in its parking lot and its senior pastor praises the health official who enforced the fines against his congregation. Some would say the church caved, others that it’s just being prudent. What do you think?
