LINK Ignorant Wisconsin Republicans Want the Governor to Open Churches for Easter | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

Wisconsin is currently a state with a Democratic governor and a Republican legislature, and the latter has done everything it can to block the former from accomplishing anything. Their latest effort involves making sure people suffer more from COVID-19 even as Gov. Tony Evers tries to protect people’s lives.

The Republicans are urging Evers to allow in-person church services during Passover and Easter because it’s important for religious people. That may be the case, but in-person gatherings during this pandemic are extremely risky and need to be avoided at all costs. While pastors are making national news for holding services that increase the risk of catching and spreading the virus, Wisconsin Republicans are trying to do something similar throughout the state.

Thankfully, Evers isn’t caving.

Next Easter? With the traditional fertility ceremony? Will there be an orgy? Why not?


When humans honestly realize the whole (and declining) TerraFamilyShip is their unique home/garden/temple=reunion hall etc., they will protect It better, instead of abusively exploit It, hopefully.

That explains why the covid precations were over ridden in that state by a judges ruling. It makes it harder for the neighboring states to reduce there covid rate.


These TEEEEE Party cheese brains have stopped anything that Governor Evers has tried to do. Obstructionists! We have the worst Senator since Joe McCarthy, Ron Johnson, & all the Repudlicans do is stonewall. Flip the Assembly! 2022.


Have they forgotten that their Mythological Saviour was 'reported' to have said, " Where one or more are GATHERED together in my NAME, so shall that be MY Church and NO other edifice shall be needed."

If Jesus won't come back, at least let them go to him!

If churches open these lawmakers should go to church with them, then they can all watch the cuming of Christ.
