Los Angeles residents attempt to block Christian singer from holding maskless concerts


#Los #Angeles residents are expressing concern over #New #Year’s #Eve concerts planned in the area by #Christian evangelical singer #Sean #Feucht, citing what they call his lack of regard for coronavirus precautions.

#Community leaders have asked #Feucht, who has hosted several #Christian music concerts across the U.S. this year with maskless attendees, to reconsider holding performances in #Skid #Row and #Echo #Park, with some vowing to block off the area, the #Los #Angeles #Times reported.

“#We know based on his track record whatever he’s going to do is going to be maskless,” #Church #Without #Walls pastor #Stephen “#Cue” #Jn-Marie told the newspaper. “The problem we’re facing is even prior to the stay-at-home order, people come into the community and say they’re bringing resources but what they’re bringing is the disease.”

#Jn-Marie teamed up with #Pete #White, executive director of the L.A. #Community #Action #Network, to create a #Facebook event calling on other residents to help form a blockade with their vehicles to prevent #Feucht’s equipment from being set up.

#Los #Angeles #County #Supervisor #Hilda #Solis said she has asked the city’s attorneys and health officials to look into the concert plans.

“I am aware and highly concerned of the planned events and have asked our #Department of #Public #Health to look into this matter. #Since this is in the jurisdiction of the #City of #Los #Angeles, I’ve also referred the matter to the #City #Attorney’s office,” #Solis told CBS #Los #Angeles.

#Feucht responded to the backlash in a tweet #Wednesday.

“The @CBSLA did a hit piece on us tonight (not surprising) where a local pastor said this: ‘I don’t think you need to be loving #Jesus in LA right now.’ #You cant make this up! #Doing the works of #Jesus (heal the sick, feed the poor, cast our demons) is ALL we’re called to do!” he wrote.

#California, and in particular #Los #Angeles #County, has been hit hard in the latest coronavirus wave. #Nearly 746,000 coronavirus cases have been reported in the county since the pandemic began, leading to almost 10,000 deaths, according to figures compiled by #Johns #Hopkins #University.
