Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's executive order exempting churches from a statewide ban on gatherings of 50 people or more has been denounced by a secularist group that is urging her to revoke the religious exemption.

Whitmer, a democrat, issued the order limiting gathering numbers in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus and later added an exemption for houses of worship.

Rachel Laser, president of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, sent a letter to the governor on Monday calling the exemption “dangerous” and “unconstitutional.”
