The virus has infiltrated Sunday sermons, meetings of ministers and Christian youth camps in Colorado and Missouri. It has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.
Pastors and their families have tested positive, as have church ushers, front-door greeters and hundreds of churchgoers. In Texas, about 50 people contracted the virus after a pastor told congregants they could once again hug one another. In Florida, a teenage girl died last month after attending a youth party at her church.
More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities, according to a New...
The leftist agenda is maddening -https://www.foxnews.com/us/nyc-black-lives-matter-marches-can-continue-despite-large-event-ban-de-blasio-says. The Dem Governor controlled states push this mindless agenda. Many Americans aren't that stupid.

If only we could send the true narrative through CNN we would have a chance because then he'd believe it. But the last time truth came from CNN we were bombing Iraq.

It seems to me a concentrated effort to close down churches. It seems that if there is a COVID 19 case at one of the secular establishments, there is a passing reference in the media, (here some pubs closed down again having just reopened on July 4th, because someone had a positive test for COVID 19), but if a church which is meeting has a couple of COVID 19 cases, all panic and alarm is let loose in the press.
Here in Britain, most churches obeyed all the rules about online only, and in the cases of some of the Catholic, Anglican and Free Churches like the Methodists, did not even allow online services from the churches, but from private addresses only, like the pastorās house or vicarage, or in the case of some churches with a pastor living in the premises, from some side chapel.
Now online services are possible, the restrictions are so onerous and difficult, with pastors adding even stricter restrictions like compulsory mask wearing, and of course the complete ban on live singing, etc., that many churches have not opened up. One very large church I know where the elderly pastor recently retired, and had elders and visiting pastors before the lockdown, still has not reopened, and was not even doing online services, but just devotionals and old recorded sermons on its we
certainly we can trust anything from the WHO, and the CDC too right? https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/07/huge-massive-cdc-fraud-uncovered-cdc-grossly-overcounting-active-china-coronavirus-cases-causing-states-keep-economies-closed-indefinitely/?fbclid=IwAR0yO_Uu2aPysqs-z1RKUHAr1-ukO4GxldliCUsV_igeKKuFdBK5fJfjHxs

"WHO says.... " Oh well, we better listen. They discovered viruses go airborne. WHO knew? Are these bozos serious? Aren't airborne viruses that what the masks are to protect us from giving out and getting? This gets more stupid every day. A sign of how desperate they are to keep it going. Hopefully more will stop asking how we gonna stop this, and ask what is it we are actually doing, and why?
Jim, I have never been so alarmed in my life! If the virus is spreading through the air, then obviously the only safe course of action is to stop breathing altogether until we can āflatten the curve.ā By the way, can someone please tell me what a flat curve looks like?

Everyone gets sick at minimum once a year, the difference today is all flu is considered to be corona, while in January, february, it was considered to be regular seasonal flu.
The recovery rates are extremly high, and people who got dead from the virus, would of been dead from the flu.
I see so many pentacostal pastors trusting God to heal them, yet place themselves under a ventilator because their faith is in a white lab coat docto, rather than staying home like they would for any flu last year.
Freeman's wife, Chelsea, posted on Instagram that he had "body aches, headaches, chills and a high fever.'' "He is someone who literally never gets sick and this virus hit him like a ton of bricks," she wrote. "We've been really strict for the last 4 months. Haven't gone to a grocery store, haven't gone out to dinner once, haven't seen our friends ... and still got it."
"More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic, with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities, according to a New York Times database."
Are you kidding me? This is news? Churches should close because the NY Times says that churches are dangerous? Look at the numbers. "...650 cornavirus cases... linked to churches... in the U.S.... SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE PANDEMIC..." 650 out of 3,159,671 cases as of this writing? That's .02% of the cases.
"...Many of them erupting over the last month..." Are you telling me that the youths that have been protesting, marching, rioting, rampaging and tearing down monuments, partying, and going to bars and beaches in groves have also been going to church to show their repentance? Is that why the cases have been "erupting over the last month?"
The same NY Times that was the genesis of and perpetuated some of the greatest lies over the past few years in American history?
A very small portion of the 45,000 churches in America have opened. And many will never open again primarily because of articles like this one.
