Not sure where you are getting your info from. I bet almost all will. Churches have expenses, they need donations, many are demanding to be allowed to open and some are even defying orders and opening anyways because they will be bankrupt if they don't.

Yep. I think herding all of the hoaxers into the same large room and breathing the same air while singing hymns, and blowing respiratory particles into the air is a great idea. I am not sure why Trump is trying to kill his base population, but oh well. I am exhausted with trying to do my part to stop the spread of the virus, and more exhausted dealing with fools.

It is time to let Darwin have his way with these morons.


Why do you assume they will not social distance/wear masks in church too?


Because trump doesn't wear one and he is their "chosen one" that should be emulated and protected at all cost.


This is a fascile argument.


No it isn't. Anyone that has researched cult behavior, knows how the devotees act toward the object of their devotion.


Do I really need to define the difference between cult and religion?

Not subjectively, but objectively, there is a difference.

Dumb.

Absolutely nothing essential about people crowding in a church, synagouge, temple or mosque. You can worship just fine from home in practically any religion. Christianity actively encourages it. If you need spiritual guidance from your holy man/woman of choice i’m almost 100% sure you don’t need to see them face to face.

Great harm can come from large concentrations of mostly older and therefore more vulnerable people.

A group representing muslims have already come out and said they wont..
Many churches in New York state have said they will be waiting for CDC guidance and wont be if they cant do I safely.
And I highly doubt if the catholic church will go bankrupt anytime soon..

define away if you feel the need to. But be objective if you can. Do I get a hint of defensiveness?

If you want to indulge yourself in semantics, be my guest!

So you’d prefer governmental powers determine what you can and cannot do?

Let the elderly stay home if they are worried. Why should everyone else not be allowed to congregate?

What difference does it make to you?

Shhhhhhhh!!

Leave them be. There will be less, and we will all be better because of it.

Don't forget to bring the kids! They are immune to the virus.

Open the bars and beerjoints as well. Human contact and dancing is essential to many.
a reply to: olaru12

Don't forget the brothels and stripclubs, those pastors gotta have someplace to go to let off some steam after their 'performances'.

And casino's, lord knows we need those.

Oops.

Churches are not begging to stay closed. They are demanding to be allowed to be open.

If you don't want the virus, don't go out.

But do not make that determination for anyone else.

Well for once, we agree.

I encourage it even, don't forget to bring the kiddies!

I have absolutely no idea why people shouldn’t congregate in the midst of a global infectious pandemic. What a preposterous idea, not wanting the virus to spread.

Obviously this is a sinister and fiendish plot by the Democratic Party to sacrifice Jesus to the Church of MegaSatan.

Pathetic
