Pastor arrested for holding church in defiance of 'social distancing' orders
His arrest Sunday stems from Hillsborough County's March 20 order banning "public or private gatherings, including community, civic, public leisure, faith-based events, sporting events, concerts and any similar events that bring together more than 10 people in a single room, single space, or any venue, at the same time."

The constitutionality of such orders is disputed. They may be valid, Liberty Counsel argues, only if "narrowly tailored," meaning implemented in a way that imposes the least infringement of constitutional rights.

Liberty Counsel noted Hillsborough County's 'Safer-at-Home' administrative order Friday contains 42 paragraphs of exceptions, including "religious personnel.'" ...

Really folks, isn't this supposed to be a Christian forum? Didn't Christ say that men would know we are His disciples by the love we have for each other? I really think the devil laughs when he sees so many believers at each other's throats.

Which one? Influenza, this season. Look it up.

Fear is indeed a terrible thing. One wonders why it is being promoted by your media friends. It might help them in their never ending quest to get rid of Trump, but it doesn't help sick people get well. Not that they care.

This church leader certainly didn't overly react!
David Brooks wrote:
....
And it's simple. Overreact. There has not been a moment where somebody has overreacted. Everything that seems like an overreaction is the right reaction. There was a University of Pennsylvania study that said, even if we cut the infection rate by 95 percent from — by social distancing, we're still going to need 960,000 people going into an intensive care ward.
That's a lot of ventilators. That's a lot of masks. That's a lot of equipment.
And so erring on the side of too much is probably still too little. And so that should — everybody's instinct should be that way....

One could say, this church leader in Florida overreacted in satisfying his Greed? Ignorance? Vanity?

I think all large churches in Lincoln have went to online services. They care about people❗👍

The Khristians, with a "K", being the mass phonies, are playing along spewing their Romans 13 false cult doctrine, praising technology so they can have virtual "fellowship," and all kinds of little jokes and scripture isolation quoting and perverting. Most of these Khristians were against being intolerant and judgmental a month ago, but have now become intolerant and judgmental themselves! Pointing fingers and sowing discord and causing strife and division. These Khristians would criticize those who would not attend the assemblies they call "church" for "forsaking the assembling," but now look at all of them - forsaking the assembling is now just fine. Hellbound hypocrites! "For by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."

No problem on anything that you said to me that I took or might have taken to be offensive. IOW, I forgive you completely. All of us have stressors that only we know about. I hope your suicidal thoughts are in the distant past now.

To the article.

This pastor is a charismatic charlatan. He is the one that most give credit for starting the “holy laughing” movement.

Gay M Allen, no worries. I highly esteem those who mock me or give me stick, flak, or call me names. How else would the Lord teach me longsuffering?

Plus, I always make huge allowances for those who are suffering in any way. And you have suffered much, by the look of it.

Heaven will be all the more welcome, if we suffer in this world; for there is no suffering there. He has saved us and called us with an holy calling; therefore serve him with gladness, appreciate him and worship him, obey him and suffer for him; he is worthy of all worship, glory and praise; he is the one who suffered and died under the gross weight of our sins, voluntarily and willingly, because of his great love wherewith he loved us.

But inside New York’s ERs, it is frighteningly visible....

If you have mild symptoms, assume that you have the coronavirus. Stay home, wash your hands, call your doctor. Don’t come to the emergency department just because of a fever or cough. Receiving a test won’t change our recommendation that you remain in self-isolation. We don’t want you to expose yourself to those who definitely do have the virus.
Social distancing, while still crucial, came too late in New York to prevent a crisis. Maybe, just maybe, extreme measures can prevent this from happening in other cities around the country....

Your correct, American.

We need to pull together, I’m sorry mr uk for mocking your non Americans citizenship and seemingly lack of understanding.

I was looking at the wrong problem & goal!

May God keep you on the narrow path and bless you as you travel upon it!
