    Is this the church that has tech which can pulverize the virus before it infects people? If so, then nothing to worry about.

    I bet that congregation is made up exclusively of those kids who were partying it up on Florida beaches during Spring Break.

    Yep. Religion has nothing to do with people getting together ... since its also happening outside religion. It provides a good excuse to rant on religion for those so inclined.

    There was a large church in Westmoreland who was continuing to have services and said the Coronavirus was an attack on religion. Can't make this stuff up sometimes.

    There was a church in my area who held the service in the parking lot with people staying in their cars and the pastor using a bullhorn since the weather was so beautiful Sunday

    I don't think you even know what "thoughts and prayers" means.

    One by me did that, but broadcasted it through a radio station. Seems like a good way to do it IMO.

    Agreed. But at that point why not use Zoom or something? There probably is an insurmountable learning curve though for older parishioners.

    People love going to those for-profit megachurches where the "pastors" make 6 figures.

    Jesus would love our tax plan where you pay 22% if you make 40,000 but only 37% if you make $100 million.

    That's just it, these comment from Pastors, it is about them! Their Church! It is more important than Life and Death. God will protect them. I know this, there are alot of "good" religious people that die of wars and diseases, so God doesn't discriminate.

    They are "small business owners." They own these churches in many cases. No church service, no money for them.

    Let’s at least be honest. If the Penguins played tonight there would probably be ten times that number that would show up to watch.

    The Greek Orthodox Archbishop said sharing a spoon to take communion won't spread the virus because it's "blessed" I actually know people that adamantly buy it and are pissed the church is closed,

    Jesus would probably just Gump it down for you and say that if you won't work you shouldn't eat.

    These whack jobs are just as bad as those purple-haired left-wing hippies.

    People got to realize that some of these people are so ****ed up they WANT this to happen and this is the Rapture they have so prepared for. It is really frightening that people have such "faith" that they would do this, but ya know Nazi Germany and there was a cult in Central PA who was doing Trigonometry to try and prove that Jerry Sandusky couldn't have abused little boys just for the end game of exonerating JoePa.

    People of extreme faith are the most dangerous of all I believe.

    Ya know what....just let them all congregate, set them on an island with food, water, collection boxes, and tell them they can have anything they want airlifted in. But they can't leave that island for 60 days. Then, send body bags.

    God isn't real and the bible is nothing more than a massive tale of fiction sold for profit.
