2. ".....WOW! Take that Gov. Walz (MN)!....."

I could never figure out what Democrats and primitives have against churches, other than that they encourage adherence to a higher power that isn't Government.

6. I'll correct that for you

They encourage adherence to a higher power that isn't the Democratic Party.

Keep in mind they loath government when it's controlled by Republicans

7. Lefty is like a Sauron. They do not share power.

Communists want to be the ONLY source of ideas and thought. They want to be the only recipient of worship.
Democrats/socialists/communists want to replace God with themselves.

9. It was a little hard for him to say!

There was a wee bit of a pregnant pause before the word...but the president DID say that "Mosques" are essential.
I bet that went over big with the fundamentalist evangelicals.

Trump just wrapped up the Christian and Catholic vote.

Biden just caused 10% more Af Ams to stay home. Lets do some polling again.

More 'logic' from Goldie.

There is a Christian vote, and there is also a Catholic vote.

There is.

While Catholics are Christians the values of Evangelicals when it comes to government are different.

Last edited Sat May 23, 2020, 06:25 PM - Edit history (1)

It's unconstitutional to order a church to shut down. IF the Diocese, Imam, or Rabbi decides to for the safety of their "Parishioners" that's on them.

RW, LW doesnt get that choice to decide

15. It's a little weird here in PA

The Democratic Gov never ordered churches to close (they were strongly encouraged to though) and for the most part everything is shut down. Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik (My HS Vice Principal when he was a priest BTW) issued a dispensation saying watching Mass on TV or the Internet counted as fulfilling your Holy Obligation.

I haven't set foot inside an church in at least 30 years except for a wedding or funeral, but I did set my mom up, who still practices and has Faith.

I may be a small A atheist but I don't hold the faithful in contempt. To quote John Lennon "Whatever gets you through the night"

Despite my rejection and repudiation of all things religion, I am still very much culturally Catholic. It's kinda like the Hotel California.

Gets into your system. So much dogma and ritual, not a lot of religions have the same tendrils.

29. I would agree with them...

For a different reason. Jewish communities have a huge influence of non-religious Jews. I know Jews who have not worshipped in 20 years that have the ADL on speed dial. Not saying all Jews are like that but their communities often keep people from falling completely out of the fold.

23. Who says he even has to believe in God to enforce the Constitutions 1st Amendment?

Why is the left so outraged?

It was UNconstitutional to order any house of worship closed, Period end of.

Unless you are a Fascist or Communist you are supposed to believe in our bill of rights

I am not a religious person but they indeed have the fucking right to worship (or not) as THEY please, Not how you wish them to do

24. No one is stopping people from worshipping

You just can't do it in a building.

Churches should not open (or close) by order of a President, but because it is safe to do so. To open churches before it is safe puts lives at risk. And that would be anti-life...

Period


What YOU advocate is UNConstitutional and UN American

26. This has nothing to do with ME and what I advocate

According to the U.S. constitution, Trump* can't override the governors. Again, one doesn't have to gather inside a building to worship. One can worship at home.
And I like this idea:
