April 16th, Trump announced that the governors are going to be in charge of opening their states back up. Apparently, he's changing that because he thinks it looks good for him politically.

First he tells the governors that it's in their hands, now, he's changed his mind and said he's gonna be the one to get things rolling.


"You're gonna call your own shots," Mr. Trump told governors on the call, according to an audio recording obtained by CBS News. "I've gotten to know almost all of you. Most of you I've known and some very well beforehand. You're very capable people. I think in all cases very capable people. And you're gonna be calling your shots. We'll be standing right alongside of you. And we're gonna get our country open, and get it working and our people want to get working."

And, because people can pray and worship at home, churches really aren't required, I'm wondering why in the hell they are considered "essential".

It's arguably a Constitutional violation.

"Congress shall make no law ..."

Under the 14th Amendment it applies to the states as well.

Where would Donald Plump have the authority to over rule governors?
People should be able to have a place of worship...just as long as these churches provide safety and follow guidelines.
Trump did say that he would leave reopening up the economy to the governors. But apparently, some of these blue state governors rather keep the lockdown longer. For what? Oh yeah, because if you keep the lockdown intact...people can't go places. People cannot buy anything. And people can't go to places they worship.

I wonder if they’re able to figure out who had it first?

singing while you have the coronavirus is like using a humidifier to spread the disease.

it’s like atomized everywhere.
Then don't go to church...it's that simple! No one is forcing you to come out of your safe space to attend any church services or sing in a choir. :rolleyes:

I personally don't consider churches to be "essential", because I can pray and talk with God anywhere and anytime I want. Churches aren't required for that. Matter of fact, it was because of churches that I abandoned religion when I was 18. But, a few years later and learning and talking with friends who were smarter than I about it, I came to the realization that no one religion is "right", and that I would get further along my spiritual path if I wasn't weighed down by the dogma of one religion over the other.

While the Left go change their underwear the rest of you can read this.


President Trump makes sense here, definitely. Why are Pot Pushers and Abortuaries considered to be "essential" but worshipping Almighty God is not? BTW, no church is REQUIRED to open
Marijuana is considered essential because it is medically necessary for some people. I can tell you that you can get almost the same pain relief from various strains that you can get from pharmaceuticals, but without all the side effect they usually come with.

Matter of fact, marijuana has been show to be an effective treatment for those with substance abuse problems such as opiates or alcohol.

Some people don't think that Abortion Mills or cigarette sales or lottery tickets or booze are "essential" either. Yet those operations are still in business.

You don't even know what religion is..

The definition is in the Bible James 1:27 (I think) care for widows and orphans...and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world
