SAN JOSE (KPIX) — Mike McClure, lead pastor of Calvary Chapel San Jose, was greeted by a large and largely mask-less group of supporters when he emerged from a contempt of court hearing Thursday.

“I wanted to thank everyone for being here today. Honestly, all we’re trying to do is minister to our community like we’ve always done. It’s sad that the state is battling the church and the church is battling the state,” McClure said.

Leaders of Calvary Chapel San Jose are locked in a protracted and costly legal battle with the Santa Clara County Public Health Department. Pastor McClure says the county’s health order banning large, indoor worship services violates his religious freedom.

“What made American great was our trust in God and I still think this is a great nation,” Pastor McClure told his supporters and members of the media gathered outside the courthouse.
