Christian actor Kirk Cameron, who is a proud evangelical, is not worried about California’s stay at home order. Instead, he is encouraging Christians to go out and celebrate Christmas with each other.

This past weekend, Cameron helped a large caroling event in the parking lot of the Oaks mall in Thousand Oaks. No one wore masks, and this was directly against Governor Gavin Newsom’s orders. Candles and lyric sheets were handed out to the crowd.

There is not an official count of how many people attended, but Cameron promoted the event on his Instagram and said he hoped over 500 people would attend. He partnered with Sing it Louder U.S.A. to get the event up and running.

“Have you ever sung Christmas carols by candlelight at a time when your state Governor has prohibited you from doing that?” Cameron said on an Instagram video. “In America? Well, this is something that is truly happening. You can’t make this up. It is such an uplifting, inspirational, and encouraging time, we want you to join us.”

“If you love God, if you love Christmas, and if you love liberty, you’re not going to want top miss it.”

Despite the large gathering, there is little legally the police could do. Mall security did reportedly call the Thousand Oaks police to check out the scene, but responding officers merely encouraged the revelers to mask-up and left. The regional stay at home order prohibits gathering with people from other households but makes an exception for religious services and protests.
