    I wish I could share the email from our bishop, put this all in persective and we are not opening even when the state say we can. The church is putting life and safety over politics.

    So it is safe to go to Walmart but not church? Politicians deciding what is safe and what is not. I get the need for shutting things down but some of the decisions are politically motivated.

    OMG Germ, can you just stop and think a bit please.
    He's using his God given right to choose how to run his church. His congregation can choose to agree or not to agree with him. They have a choice to go else where or stay home. So if you are seeing his choice as political by saying he's not playing politics, then remember this. IT IS REPUBLICANS THAT HAVE FOUGHT FOR his right to make that choice. Not every state gov. Shut down church worship remember that .

    Well if masks should be worn by everyone, if they are so effective why not mask up and go worship?

    When people get labeled pro life they are anti abortion. I myself find killing unborn children wrong however a murdering rapist I am all for ending that life, also I believe with terminal illness there is a right to death as well. Now some liberals will not get that and say how can you call yourself pro life. To me it is more logical than the liberal mindset where it is ok to kill an innocent unborn but it is cruel and un usual punishment to execute a violent criminal.

    Yes, I am.
    Because abortion is an affirmative act made with the explicit intent to end the life of a helpless innocent. There is no other outcome.

    And don't give me the life of the mother crap; if that's where you were headed. Minuscule percentage. If that's the line in the sand you want to draw then I and every other pro lifer accept your deal. Right here and now.

    That’s not the line, it is simple. Now a pro lifer actually has to make an effort to save a life, stay home, maybe where a mask and not just run their mouths which is easy. I respect the leaders at my church now they have proven their belief to pro life, the rest up lifers it’s just spray coming out of their mouths. Worthless
