Christian actor and filmmaker Kirk Cameron made a joyful noise to ring in the holidays with a caroling event billed as a “peaceful protest” in light of California’s stringent restrictions against indoor worship services but leniency toward protests.
According to the Christian Post, Cameron joined forces with Sing It Louder USA, a grassroots movement “in response to govt officials issuing orders for what we can’t do in our own homes to celebrate the holidays,” hosting the event in the parking lot of The Oaks mall in Thousand Oaks, California.
Cameron’s first impromptu caroling event was held on December 6 and drew a crowd of about 500 people to sing songs in celebration of the birth of the Savior. On December 13, Cameron held another caroling event, this time advertising it in advance and attracting an even bigger crowd of carolers.
“We had the most amazing time this last Sunday,” Cameron declared in an Instagram post after the first event. “It was a Christmas caroling peaceful protest.”
“Last Sunday’s peaceful protest in conjunction with @singitlouderusa was such a blessing and had an overwhelming response of enthusiasm and gratitude,” Cameron captioned the video, letting viewers know of the follow-up event. “Join me and many others to sing the songs of the Christmas season by candlelight and spread the message of Christ’s love and liberty.”
“Have you ever sung Christmas carols by candlelight at a time when your state governor has prohibited you from doing that?” Cameron said in the video. “In America! Well, this is actually happening; you can’t make this up.”
Cameron encouraged his followers to attend the event and “double the size” of their gathering and “sing Christmas songs, Christmas carols at the top of our voices.”
“It is such an uplifting, inspiration, and encouraging time,” he added. “If you love God, if you love Christmas, and you love liberty, you’re not going to want to miss this,” Cameron declared.
According to TMZ, which complained that Cameron hosted the events during a pandemic, “mall security did call police, and officers from the Thousand Oaks PD that responded simply educated folks on the importance of mask-wearing and left. No one was cited or arrested, despite Gov. Newsom’s lockdown measures.”
