Church bucks coronavirus closure orders and holds Sunday service
A South Jersey church held services on Sunday in defiance of government closure orders and amid concerns that large gatherings involving loud speech and song could put participants in danger of coronavirus infection.

Parishioners of the Solid Rock Baptist Church in Berlin, Camden County, gathered for what its clergy told Gov. Phil Murphy prior to the service would “meet or exceed” safety recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“We’re not looking for trouble; we’re not lawbreakers,” Pastor Charles Clark Jr. could be seen in a live internet broadcast exclaiming from the pulpit toward a crowded front pew. “We’re exercising our constitutional rights.” ...

Well., In East Mississippi, they burned down a church where the pastor had been given a ticket for holding church services. The church has sued the city to be able to open. And the city, in its statement to the 5th circuit court, stated, since the church has burned down, the plaintiff doesn’t have a case. There was a notation in the parking lot about what happens when you go against the city edicts. The parking lot was also tagged with a swastika and a pentagram.
Al Sharpton is a media pimp dressed up like like a carnival barker. But apparently his quote wasn’t in the above noted story.

Gentleman, I never thought I'd be quoting this person but he did it fairly well.

“I respect their beliefs but I also would say that the Holy Ghost does not suspend common sense and that God would not make things available to us, in terms of knowledge, if it was not to be applied,

“People, in my opinion, can be sincerely misled… the reason we make the appeal to the pastors and the shepherds is because some of them, I feel, have a cynical use of the confidence that people have in them, and that’s inexcusable.”---Rev. Al Sharpton

Some of these "Shepherds" are more politicized than Mr. Sharpton is❗ I haven't seen anywhere in the Bible that pleasing Trump is part of one's Christian duty.👎

My family & I visited this church. It is not the typical mega church and we found the preaching a bit light. The congregation was a sight, though, waving their Bibles and shouting.

The church is one to stand up for what they feel this right, and as a fairly conservative church, isn't afraid to take a stand. Not a church for us, not a Bible waver myself, but they sure have a big congregation.

Bigotry much, Jim?

It's your right to discriminant against churches you disagree with but it's not the right of government. But it seems you are okay with the constitution being tread under foot as long as it suits your bigotry.

Since when do governments and experts dictate to the Lord’s churches how to conduct services?
Since few question their authority to do so, and in times of fear, it's easier to enact things that are unacceptable when folks aren't chained by their emotions. As for speech that endangers participants, we never hear of politicians or talking heads controlling their daily speechmaking to limit infection possibilities, do we?

On a similar note,

Daniel 3:14-18 KJV
(14)  Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up?
(15)  Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?
(16)  Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
(17)  If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
(18)  But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Fighting, fearless talk.

Therefore it's ok to generalize about "church gatherings" regardless of what they do to accommodate necessary precautions, but not about Walmart because Walmart is trying? Try again, Jim. I'm sure there are more cow flops in your yard.

Large church gatherings have been linked to major outbreaks of the coronavirus in Germany, France, and South Korea. German officials said at least 107 people tested positive for COVID-19 after some attended services at Evangelical Christian Baptist Congregation in Frankfurt on May 10.

A study published by the National Academy of Sciences on May 13 found that one minute of loud speech could produce thousands of tiny droplets that can remain airborne for about 12 minutes. If they come from an infected person, others in the area could contract the virus.
