LINK Pope Francis: We Shouldn’t Oppose COVID Restrictions in the Name of “Freedom” | Beth Stoneburner | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

The Supreme Court ruled this week that New York’s COVID restrictions limiting gatherings in places of worship were unconstitutional — even if those limitations were meant to save lives. (While some, like Justice Neil Gorsuch, argued that churches were treated more harshly than “acupuncturists… and liquor stores,” churches are far more comparable to bars or concert venues — where people gather and speak — and they actually received preferential treatment to those secular counterparts.)

In any case, one criticism of the lawsuit itself was that the leaders of these religious institutions were putting their own desires over their congregations’ health. And now a prominent name has joined those critics.

I think many Churches are run by people who feel entitled. They feel "working for God" grants them some form of diplomatic immunity over secular laws. Silly, if you ask me.


Too bad the Pope couldn't replace some of out SCOTI

Hahahahahaha good one.


So, the pope is not completely evil. 🙂


They want to stay open, the least they can do is pay taxes for the health destruction they are helping on others. People should start Sueing the churches that are identified as spreaders.
