Australia state bans worship during online worship broadcasts
In Australia, a state government has banned praise during online worship broadcasts believed to contain infection with the new coronavirus. The state of New South Wales decided to take serious measures to prevent a possible new wave of infections and, amid restrictions, banned anyone from singing while on a live or group video call.

Hillsong President Pastor Brian Houston said, “That’s why our state government has proposed an ordinance that not a single person can sing for a camera to lead live Christian worship.

Christians stand up.” Other religious leaders have taken a stand against the measure, mainly Pentecostals and Catholics, saying the decree was evidence of religious persecution.
