Trump demands churches open because they're essential services, The FSM disagrees…

Darn those 9th and 10th Amendments, Trump declared that he will override governors to allow places of worship to reopen this weekend. Because they are essential businesses. “We need more prayer, not less”.

Trump left Deborah Birx in the lurch to try to rationalize such a declaration in today’s presser. The several dimensions of this are the 1200 pastors who called upon Trump to act as well as the use of the Memorial Day weekend holiday. He needed to offset the news that Hydroxycholoroquine is even more lethal.

CDC offers the following general considerations to help communities of faith discern how best to practice their beliefs while keeping their staff and congregations safe.  Millions of Americans embrace worship as an essential part of life.  For many faith traditions, gathering together for worship is at the heart of what it means to be a community of faith. But as Americans are now aware, gatherings present a risk for increasing the spread of COVID-19 during this public health emergency. CDC offers these suggestions for faith communities to consider, consistent with their own faith traditions, in the course of preparing to reconvene for in-person gatherings while still working to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Implementation should be guided by what is feasible, practical, and acceptable, and tailored to the needs and traditions of each community of faith.  The information offered is non-binding public health guidance for consideration only; it is not meant to regulate or prescribe standards for interactions of faith communities in houses of worship. Any decision to modify specific religious rites, rituals, and services should be made by religious leaders.  Specific preventive actions are provided as examples only. www.cdc.gov/…
