Health Editor’s Note: Preachers are suing to be able to gather people together and insure the congregations either infect others, become infected, or both with COVID-19. I ask, what is the purpose of gathering people together to listen to someone speak about…well, whatever is going to be said? Words spoken from a pulpit are not going to protect people from COVID-19 nor cure them of having it.
Governors who place stay-at-home orders and then extend those orders are doing what is best for the state. The governors are waging a battle against more COVID-19 viral infections and deaths. The battle with COVID-19 is a waiting game. Waiting to see who gets it, where it spreads, now many it will infect and how many it will eventually kill. Best guesses are made as to how reopening the state will progress but when you are still seeing new cases and deaths from COVID-19, that is a clear sign that this virus is not taking a rest from creating havoc and taking lives.
Governors who extend dates for reopening are not being tyrannical, they are simply trying to save human lives, even when this is not meeting the approval of those who think prayer will prevent/cure COVID-19. By the way, Gordon says he does not give a fuck because it would take a howitzer to take him out. That being said, Gordon is not protesting stay at home orders and sees the reason (s) for them…Carol
Church Leaders Sue Michigan Governor Whitmer Over Coronovirus Stay-At-Home Order
by Meghan Roos/Newsweek
Three church leaders joined a small group in suing Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Wednesday over her recent extensions of the statewide stay-at-home order.
Filed by Great Lakes Justice Center (GLJC) on behalf of three pastors, three churches and one individual, the lawsuit alleged Whitmer’s executive orders prevented the free exercise of religion granted by both the federal and state constitutions.
“The Constitution does not become irrelevant during any emergency, including a pandemic,” GLJC said in a Wednesday news release. “Just because a governor has ink in her pen does not mean the Constitution authorizes her to use it, notwithstanding good intentions.”
