    As I said in the other thread, I'll comply with our State's guidance because we have a lot of older people who are very susceptible to this, and I love them.
    If it makes them feel better to wear masks, I can play that game.

    So let me get this straight.

    Churches that have been complying with shutdown orders for months, and been given the okay to reopen with limitations, now can't worship in song or any sort of communal speech, are going to be visited by the singing police.*

    But the tens of thousands of rioters and business burning mobs and statue destroyer do-badders are okay.

    You know what's next, right?

    The preacher won't be allowed to preach because speaking spreads the virus.

    Nope. No way. At this point, in my opinion, it's time to obey God and keep singing His praise.

    *Well, it's a possibility that there will be singing police!

    This may affect Grace Church too; will be interesting to hear what Johnny Mac has to say about it.

    Well, they seem to have only a few people there each week, mostly the staff, so there aren't masses of people.

    And the few in the pews are farther than 6 feet away from the platform, and if they space themselves out where they're sitting they should be ok.

    I don't think MacArthur will stop the singing, but I could be wrong.

    Fortunately, Texas is much more "faith friendly" (now*) than probably any other state in the union.

    If it gets to a civil disobedience thing, it won't be the first time I've been arrested for noncompliance.


    *I say "now", because you ought to see the hateful nearly Satan-worshiping 'people' who are trying to get into office in Austin.

    The governor is facing a recall and he is (in my opinion) unraveling much like his Aunt Pelosi Is with the challenge for her seat and SHE has more to lose.

    Let's see now... Didn't Trump make places of worship (churches, synagogues, mosques temples etc.) "essential" meaning that the states can't close them? But now the states are trying to regulate worship services.

    Isn't that a violation of the First Amendment? Or at the very least like telling a store that they can open but only as long as someone doesn't buy anything.

    I'm always still in trouble again
