Upon thinking about this supposed “victory” for the constitution of Trump labeling places of worship “essential”; after observing the fact the president of the United States approval is required to “open churches” for those which believe congregating at a church is essential to their faith:
I see not only is the constitution completely undermined and within the confines of authority like that of a communist dictatorship, but the common people are blind to the fact it required Donald Trump to approve this practice of worship though the constitution clearly says the people’s rights override the governments laws..
“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.” -1st Amendment
I’d understand if this were the Black Plague of which 1/3’rd of our population were projected to die..
I’d understand if the scrutiny of “inflated numbers” of coronavirus infections and deaths wasn’t so compelling.
I’d understand if billionaires such as the CEO of Amazon hadn’t made over 400+ billion dollars since the the quarantine began according to an article by CNBC, begging the question of whether or not big businesses are lobbying public officials to extend this quarantine to eliminate small business competition…
I’d understand if there weren’t so many red flags, and credible people of high positions in various fields speaking out against this fear mongering, anti constitutional propaganda..
I’m not rushing to the defense of Christianity.. I personally believe the “temple model” church practice is less biblical than house to house church services, but I don’t care if your religion is to eat 10 Big Macs every Taco Tuesday as an offering to Ronald McDonald, the 1’st amendment doesn’t discriminate..
Instead of making this a “God verses Science” issue as many God haters are, this should be a “truth versus lie” issue or a “Constitution verses Communism” issue… I understand your bias against Religion shallows your brain to the depths of your emotions, but while you close your eyes and ears to obvious corruption so you can keep pointing your fingers at the “non stay at home Christians” and burning their churches, your temporary satisfaction will end in a world of missery as you exchange the first amendment to briefly scorn from the sidelines as you watch the Christians get their rights taken from them.
All that aside, I’ll end with a wonderful quote from a wonderful patriot that hopefully you’ll ponder on as this propaganda continues:
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”-Benjamin Franklin
