But I expect you to self-quarantine the other 167 hours of the week. That goes for all public gatherings of a similar nature.

I expected you to quarantine out of this board like you said you were going to 4 years ago and yet here you are.

So back to the topic at hand, most churches have already put out the guidelines. Church I attend says service only, 40 minutes, no singing. No more than 50 people. No offering or communion. Everyone has to be 6 feet apart, and masks will be worn. No other services (Bible Study) will occur and no separate child services or child care. They also are discouraging anyone with compromised immune systems to be there.

If a bar can open and sell drinks, a church should be able to open it's doors and let it's worshippers come and fellowship in Christ together.

Bless your heart.

And these are perfectly usable and reasonable arrangements. This is what Sunday’s will look like all over the country for a while, and no big deal.

I like the “drive-in” Church service too, every other parking space and Preacher man on a mic and speaker.

These clowns that are locked into “they must remain closed NO services”. Or Errrrrrmageddon!!! They’re gonna open and pack the aisles, the whole rear, they’ll all be sitting on top of each other!!!”

C’mon people, don’t be dumb. There’s plenty of ways this can work quite simply. Don’t be dumb.

This has long ago stopped being about science and become completely political.

You might as well have told them not to breathe.

Churches have remained open this entire time - just because you're not sitting next to someone in a different building doesn't mean worship hasn't been happening.


Repubs" "State's rights within the law!"
Also repubs: "Yes! Executive order to overrule bad governor decisions so we can practice our God-given (not state given) right to sit in a pew!"

He didn't EO it. The CDC says they're okay to open if they follow guidelines. The Blue governors keep saying how important the CDC guidelines are, so not to have a double standard, should follow this guideline too. I suspect they'll have the double standard.

How many times do I have to say this?

EDIT: sorry, I misread your post. It comes across as bashing Trump. My comment still true (unless he did EO it but it doesn't sound like he did) but I didn't mean it to come as an attack.

No problem! I didn't take it as a bash.

Reading text can be frustrating. You lose so much context.

Hmmm, when reading the guidelines, I see they're addressed towards the places of worship......The Dem Governors aren't even going to look at them. Will be interesting to see how this develops in Blue Governor states.

I still won’t be able to attend but ours start back June 14th. Without child care my kid ain’t gonna sit through a service. This is where you use your best judgement or personal responsibility. People like JDT don’t get this.
