— Triple C Brewing Company's owner Chris Harker says a Charlotte church that has an outspoken stance against Mecklenburg County's mask mandate will no longer be allowed to use his parking lot on Sundays.

On Facebook, Harker posted a Charlotte Observer story about Freedom House Church's decision to allow guests to worship without masks. Above the story he wrote: "We will no longer allow this church to use our parking lot on Sundays. Freedom isn’t always free I guess."

The church is located within walking distance of the brewery, WCNC Charlotte reports.

On their Facebook page, Freedom House said they would not be closing their doors and said virtual worship is not an option for its congregation.
