And just like that the US inches ever closer to a theocracy and a complete buttfuck of the separation of church and state. Thank you Regressive Left for your identity politics and all your BS that ignited and emboldened the Right.
The Left should be trying to seduce people in the Right to increase numbers and become stronger, not alienate everyone with your fucking purity tests.
The two justices have been new radical members. Why do you think the US is closer to a theocracy? The same government that largely doesn't want people to meet in any churches?
The President that will nominate a new justice and makes an argument that the idea of a god and superstition must be protected.
I see it all the time, how judges and public officials think they can force members, citizens and officials into compelled speech by forcing prayers and tryinf to force people to adhere to religious precepts and how the line that SHOULD separate church and states is always at risk (and in a lot of cases already overlooked) by those in government that don't understand this is NOT a theocracy where you can force people to entertain your magical sky daddy. And new nominations will follow that perspective, the perspective that people should be forced to believe in the idea of a god.
Law is as good as the people who interpret and enforce it.
The Left has done nothing but prop up the Right. If the Left rises, so does the Right, and if the Right rises, so does the Left, and this Left has allowed a lot of people to speak on their behalf who do nothing but insert purity tests and think they can cancel anyone (which the Right has done and continues to do as well) who doesn't agree with their most extreme stances, instead of bringing more people into their side.
I don't have to defend the policies any state took regarding church attendance. Those who prohibited church attendance but took no measures, not even made any utterance of condemnation towards protesters and rioters and how they disobeyed the quarantine have no credibility in my eyes. I can only tell church goers to not follow the irresponsible example of protesters and rioters and vice versa.
If you ask me, just like the rest of daily life affairs that we have to continue doing in spite of the pandemic, churches should be allowed to receive believers and churches should make the adjustments and take the precautions necessary to minimize the chances of the coronavirus spread. And if any church leader decides to approach communion in a different way that doesn't include attendance, like long distance prayer or whatever, that church leader is being very responsible. They say their magical sky daddy can do everything and hears everything so they can pray anywhere, unless the previous claim is false and their god has a local limitation from where he can listen to prayers.
But that is not how things go with churches. They don't give a fuck about coronavirus and protective measures (with god on your side who against you?) and it is just brilliant to see how once again the idea of a god fails miserably to produce responsible behavior within a society.
