Given that they have research out now showing that people of strong faith who regularly took part in religious activities weathered this past year with the best mental health outlooks, the churches and other places of worship should have been deemed essential.
But again, that's what happens when you have atheists in charge. They don't understand how religion is anything other than a convenient political dodge.

Amendment 1 of the Bill of Rights
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Bold is mine.
There is going to come a time, I believe, that the infringement of religious freedom will become an issue.
Regardless if it comes from local, state, federal levels, we all might have to make a choice.
Make a stand. (nod to S. King)
Will you stand for the Constitution that clearly states that government cannot dictate religious beliefs, or will you obey the government?
I'll stand by and for the Constitution.
Moderna reports significantly higher risk of common side effects
5,052 vaccine recipients suffered a "health impact event" as of Dec. 19
CDC defines "health impact event" as one that renders a patient "unable to perform normal daily activities, unable to work, required care from doctor or health care professional"
That's a rate of about 2.3% of vaccine recipients
CDC says a severe allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, was reported in 6 patients
Both vaccines are effective at reducing the risk of symptomatic COVID-19 for at least 14 days (Moderna) or more than two months (Pfizer-BioNTech)
It's impossible to know how effective the vaccines are beyond the number of days they've been given to humans. It's also impossible to know this soon what are the potential long term side effects, if any.
