    He's getting hit with bad poll after bad poll these days and is desperate.
    No, why do many on here want churches re-opened?

    No, as far as opening up again, they are not calling planned parenthood and liquer stores essential, each state is determining the opening procedure guidelines for themselves. It no longer has to do with what's essential. which included businesse's such as supermarkets, gas stations and banks etc. When it comes to re-opening it's left up to the states to decide what they want to do, or how they want to do it, and the states can't enforce churches to re-open any more than our wannabe King can..

    Because people feel they have a spiritual need and that is how they satisfy that need.

    Just out of curiosity, where are you getting that anybody is trying to force (or "enforce") churches to reopen?

    Trump can't force churches to re-open, Sparko, nor can he tell Governors how to run the states. DO is right, it's red meat for his evangelical base, Trump couldn't care less, otherwise.

    You know, it's actually possible for somebody to do something for political expediency AND care about it?

    So George Wallace was right to stand in the school doorway and deny admittance to blacks because JFK can't force schools to admit blacks nor tell Governors how to run the states?

    I don't need to get that from anywhere, if a church wants to stay closed, that's nobody's business but the churches.

    Sorry JimL this is a 1st Amendment issue not a 10th Amendment Issue and as the Protector of the Constitution if the Governors do not start opening up the places of worship President Trump can sue the States for trampling on the 1st amendment rights of the People to worship together. which is what I suspect he is going to do.

    The ones acting like dictators and wannabe kings are certain Governors who refuse to accept that the People have rights that SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
