Trump is sending Christians to slaughter.

He really doesn't care that the nature of services has people touching one another, opening their mouths to sing and pray and aerosolize, like a garden hose, virus. A full church means people are closer than 6 feet. So does a half-full service. Collection plates are giant petri dishes. Passing the Peace should be renamed Passing the Plague.

Our bishop has instructed our ministers to wait until at least mid-June before having services corporately because they recognize the rest among the churches' demographics. Good on them for thinking about us first, even though donations are down.

4. I guess he doesn't realize

The people who get sick, and some will die, are actually part of his base, or his "cult"!

Or maybe he just wants to open the whole damned country "right now" and doesn't have the brains to see what is going to happen.

6. At this point I'd be ready to shrug and invoke the "personal responsibility" RWers love so much,

EXCEPT for all of the collateral damage to family members, neighbors, health care workers, etc of all of those morons who get infected in the name of Jeebus.

It is the respiratory droplet/airborne aspect of this disease which makes me so incensed about people's stupid selfish reckless behavior. If they were only killing themselves I'd have exhausted my indignation a long time ago and just adopt a "go ahead then" attitude.

The "damn the consequences, we're going to church services" position is morally equivalent to suicide bombing, imo.

7. He's not forcing them to go.

If people are stupid enough to go cram themselves into the pews, and they get sick, that's entirely on them.
