Church State Issues

Trinity Donovan & Chandler government forces religion on city employees???

Oct 30, 2014

More mixing religion and government in the Chandler city government.

Today, Thursday, October 30, 2014 at about 11 a.m. I went to lunch. On my way to the restaurant I walked thru the open air plaza and the Chandler City Hall and they were having some event which looked like a Halloween festival.

There were a bunch of booths there which were run by people where were not associated with the Chandler City Government.

I saw two groups there which I though might be mixing religion and government.

I suspect that the city of Chandler didn't invite every religious group in the Valley or for that matter just in the city of Chandler.

I suspect that Chandler City Councilman Trinity Donovan only invited the religious groups that she is involved with. Which is in my mind a violation of mixing government and religion.

I took some photos of the event, despite the fact that I was falsely arrested on Friday, October 17, 2014 by Chandler Police Officer Ariel Werther for taking photos of the van or bus owned by the Chandler Christian Community Center which was parked in the employees only parking lot of the Chandler Fire Department Headquarters.

In addition to being falsely arrested by 4 Chandler Police Officers I also had my 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendment Constitutional rights violated by those Chandler Police officers.

I was illegally searched, ordered to answer questions after taking the 5th, denied my 6th Amendment right to a lawyer and stopped from taking the photographs I was shooting.

Those two groups are

Chandler Christian Community Center

and

Today I was over in a building just south of where this event was. The building I was in today is just south of Chicago Street in the in the Neighborhood Resources Office and I saw a poster again mixing government and religion.

The sign on that building is:

City of Chandler, Arizona, Maricopa Community College District and Chandler Christian Community Center mix government and religion in the Neighborhood Resources Office at Chandler City Hall

This time they were mixing government and religion for the Chandler Christian Community Center and the Chandler Gilbert Community College, which is a branch of the Maricopa County Community College District . That URL is

Here are the photos I put on that web page.

They are identical, but in the first photo I circled everything where they are mixing religion and government.
