    The US churches and pastors ignoring 'stay-at-home' orders

    The US churches and pastors ignoring 'stay-at-home' orders | World news | The Guardian

    Concerted effort to protect religious freedoms is playing out as some states exempt houses of worship from stay-home orders

    When a Florida pastor, who had been arrested for holding a church service despite local coronavirus restrictions, complained he was the victim of “a tyrannical government”, Ron DeSantis, the state’s Republican governor, was listening.

    In executive orders issued in quick succession this week, DeSantis designated religious services as “essential activities”. Then he swept away the right of cities and counties to ban them. “I don’t think the government has the authority to close a church. I’m certainly not going to do that,” DeSantis said. “In Easter season, people are going to want to have access to religious services.” California megachurch linked to spread of more than 70 coronavirus cases

    This, however, was no municipality-versus-state power struggle. A concerted effort to protect religious freedoms is playing out across the country in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, frustrating efforts by public health officials to enforce social distancing per federal guidelines and slow the spread of the deadly virus. In almost all of the states that lead the nation in numbers of cases, and which have issued blanket stay-at-home orders, there are specific exemptions for religious gatherings or acts of worship, a survey by the Guardian of published regulations and media coverage found.

    I personally think religion is a tool to control the minds of men & women & to relieve them of their cash. Freedom of religion today, a casket tomorrow.

    These religious hypocrites who preach pro-life are willing to risk lives to rake in the cash from their mindless followers. Just saw this piece of trash, refusing to hold services online and keep people safe, and respect the law...they should toss his ass in jail. The idiots who show up for his shows and give him their money cannot be respected. They care nothing about themselves or their neighbors....house of fools. I just feel sorry for the rest of the people in the state who know enough to stay home, because these religious nuts will spread the virus to them. Trump must be pleased, another ignorant moron with blood on his hands.
