  1. Every single church leader without a real job is a grifter!! All of the pastors and ministers crying about people not coming to their churches are only worried about the money they beg for every time they pass out the collection plates! Pastors and ministers have balls having big families living in big houses and driving fancy cars when they don’t work for a living. That’s a hobby!! They should be ashamed every time the collection plate goes out and it should only be for church necessities! Pastors should cut the grass and paint the building, clean the toilets and mop the floors. Keep the books, make the fliers and pamphlets, stack the chairs and make coffee for everyone, but they don’t! They sit around like royalty and puke out some regurgitated crap on sundays and act like a conduit to god! Pathetic #religiousleadersgotowork

  2. I'm as religious as the next guy but you don't have to go to church to worship. You can do it where ever you are. They just want the collection.

  3. Only in the religious theocracy of Trumplandia could anyone argue about a pandemic against scientists with the approval of the governing bodies.

  4. I'm Weinberg why the Pope and especially evangelical leaders have not volunteered to nurse covid infected people. Might it be because they don't believe God will protect them but perhaps science will?

  5. Prosecute Trump, DeSantis and all these “leaders”for criminal negligence and negligent homicide. Example, if a drunk pilot crashes a plane and people die-the pilot goes to prison. These reckless “leaders” have an ocean of blood on their hands

  6. 16.000 deaths, 9.000 deaths more than yesterday…in a single day. The death toll double everyday, but yeah goes to curch buddies, what a wonderful idea it is!. ??‍♂️

  7. So I get that religious, or any type of gatherings are a problem. But in country that still has fast food drives open in which the employees don't have the protection needed, or just a few weeks ago, when hundreds gathered to say "hello" to a ship, is this really strange?
    To all people wanting to put a blame on religion, you are wrong. Most religious people in other countries (and even in the US) have no problems complying with the stay at home order for religious gatherings. This isn't a religious problem, this is a political and/or cultural problem.

  8. even mecca and the Italy main church is on lockdown because they don't want mass infections and unnecessary death. This is a test of faith. Do you think you're going to heaven without being tested? Not all get it. Sometimes, I wonder if these so-called religious nuts actually read their bible or learn anything. Faith is one thing but it doesn't mean you throw out common sense! Dumbnuts!

  10. Don't treat these people if they are found to have attended this church or other organisations . Risking the lives of others especially the poor people who have to deal with them . What don't they think the emergency responders including police , hospital's and other organisations have family to go home to.

  11. COVID-19 HAS BEEN CREDITED WITH THE CLOSURES OF CHURCHES. It forces people of religious beliefs to find their GODS in the privacy of SELF ISOLATED

  14. Trump doesn't even say his prayers and his thoughts are with the people who have died this guy has know humanity or compassion in his body

  15. Haven't you heard or read, time and again; " if you have a cold, give it to someone else!"
    It seems this logic is wide spread regardless of denominations.
    Also this saying happens to be in English.

  16. What happened to "social distancing" working? Now we can't be in groups at all even if we do social distance? This just stinks of fish…

  17. Most GOP are driven by hate of this great man 'Obama', so much so that every thing Obama was for, they were against now people are dying and all they looking for is Obama to blame. AMERICA WAKE UP.

  18. Trump could put an end to this in a second !!….. But hey, not worth the risk of losing votes Donald, right ??

  19. The church goers should just follow safe distancing and proper cleaning of surfaces, as does every essential worker which come into work everyday in groups just the same as church but every single day. All you ppl in the comments are fools listening to this garbage.

  20. Make them wear ankle bracelet. They are only allowed to travel from home to church in their own car with windows closed. They have to sign a waiver saying that local and state hospitals will not treat them for COVID-19

  21. Government agents should stand at the doors of churches and have those who want to gather sign waivers so the gov. is not responsible to provide care if they become ill

  22. I believe in God. ?

    BUT… A few of these ultra-orthodox organised religions (the world over) refusing to cooperate to stop this pandemic, which is killing so many, make me feel second-hand shame.

  23. I'm so glad I'm free of religion and the need to be 'seen'. Spirituality is something else and has no need for gatherings, gather and give thanks when this is all over, listen to science and those who are qualified to give medical advice.

  24. As a Priest, it is a huge grief not to able to gather physically for these sacred days of Holy Week and Easter. But in New Zealand we are taking matters seriously, using technology to worship as we can, and accepting that saving life is an essential part of the service of faith. I pray those in the US can comprehend that.

  26. In India police taking stern actions against anyone who doing this drama of religious gathering.
    No one is allowed…..how it is still a issue in usa

  27. i make a quesition to Lindsey Graham you cut the tie from China BUT I BOUGHT THE STAFF FROM CHINA IS CHEAPER FOR EXM $!.20 METER IN CHINA AND ALL OVER TH E WO RLD AMNERICA $2.50 METER OR OTHER COUNTRY .WHO IS cHEAPER?

  28. I thought God gave us a brain too if I’m not mistaken. For those who intend to visit a religious gathering it might be wise to use it for a change. Doctor is completely right of course!

  29. The president needs to be put in jail and put to death for all those people in the United state who has died or got sick becouse he kept sayinh for 2 or three months that it would go away and it was a hoaxs trunp needs to go tojail then the electric chair for every American that he is responsible for their their death and energy

  30. Any person who knows and understands scripture, knows, church is not the building. The body of Christ is people. Pastoral leaders have a responsibility to feed and protect the flock. A good shepherd protects the flock against all harm. Me and my flock, children, will watch service safely, online.

  31. any religion is poison, Evolution is truth, we are all naked apes (no fur) http://infidels.org
    on youtube see hitchens/dawkins/aronra/dillahunty or the unholy trinity

  32. Let them go to church! I can stay inside for another few weeks while Trump's base infect each other with a highly contagious deadly virus. They've been threatening the rest of us with their guns for years. Let's not stand in their way.

  33. So the authoritarian left believes 1st amendment violation is a good thing now? Even after fake numbers were revealed? I thought enough blood was shed over this issue back in the 18th and 19th centuries.

  34. U have no right to keep Christ's children from being together. We are family and he is our father.
    It doesn't matter what you think people want to be with their family. And yes we are FAMILY.
    Christ's going to win anyway. So you can not win no matter what you say or do.. NO weapons formed against Christ children will prosper.

  35. In Ireland which would be a fairly religious country church gatherings have been cancelled since early March they broadcast the masses on live streams etc here

  36. I understand that we have a problem right now however, you can't stop Christians from going to church forever. It just seems as if this is a new way to stop Christians from worshipping

  37. If you want to gather…then quarantine together…spread the virus within yourself and not to others… Let natural selection take over…

  38. In this situation, I think only we can save ourselves. By the way does anyone know where I can buy some masks?

  39. These religious people that are spreading it should be denied a ventilator or medication. Let them pray there way out.

  40. As for me I don't care if they gather in church and all die. That will be the wrath of God, but I do care that they spread the virus by their fanatic religion to others who can think for themselves.

  41. Problem is not gathering to pray. Praying can be done anywhere. Real problem is that if you pray at home, the church does not get $$$$.

  42. EVERYONE GREAT NEWS!!! I just received the machine I ordered, from the same place the pastor in Orlando, Florida got his. The machine is made in China and it's called "Mewipuoff." It cures everything, including HIV, cancer and down syndrome. I.plugged it in and placed it above my front door. As everyone comes in it does exactly as the pastor says. While everyone bashed him for having service I held out judgement, until I received my order. I'm a believer…thanks pastor.

  43. Religion can't stand that there's a virus that's better than them at taking up a larger share of the public consciousness.

  44. I now hate the church but craving KFC! He reminds me of Colonel Sanders maybe he should just order these idiots to stay home ?

  45. The world will be a safer place if all religious folk would succumb to the COVID-19 virus. By all means go ahead ye Evangelicals: infect each other and we will bury you.

  46. Church challenges Peters gospel to spread the word!! Must be alive to spread the word !! Be creative or just hold off for a year or so !! ??????????????????????

  47. Yes my Humane Society daze I have no idea if it evens out it's not the shot fired in anger more like shooting yourself in the buzzing head time and time again, so they don't see it coming respect & death. Hundreds maybe thousands on the devils waste of life train.

  48. This is a no-brainer. Gather 100 people in a nightclub, and they're risking all our lives. Gather 100 people in a church, and God magically suspends the system of virologic infection.

  49. Don't cause problems for someone with a weak conscience just because you have the right to eat anything. You know all this, and so it doesn't bother you to eat food that has been offered to idols. But suppose a person with a weak conscience sees you and decides to eat food that has been offered to idols. Then what you know has destroyed someone Christ died for. When you sin by hurting a follower with a weak conscience, you sin against Christ. 1st Corinthians 8.9-12

  50. Dude wears a white label coat to reinforce that he is a doctor….I find that tends to reduce credibility…hey, Acme shampoo, made and sold by people in white coats, must be good..

    Apart from that, he is talking sense.
    Want one of those evangelical s to show me where in the Bible it tells us to meet in a formal church at regular intervals to worship….I understand there is one reference to meet together to support each others faith, but that isn't the same thing at all. For almost every issue you want you can find totally opposite views in the Bible…but church meetings just don't feature…
    If you can't appreciate the world and it's contents in your own home, then going to church is for another reason…..

  51. In my opinion:
    #Corona # Virus It is not a disease, it cannot be vaccinated, it is a bio-bomb which is mixed with air, and spreads quickly,
    To disable it, another bio-bomb is to be discovered, which, when mixed with air, will neutralize the corona virus,
    It may or may not be a created privilege for some,
    If you do not believe it,
    How did China disable it all together?
    How did they lift the lockdown,
    Why are they no longer patient?
    Where did the 165000 affected patients from China go?
    How all of a sudden peace returned to Ohan province?
    How are they again selling different species of animals / insects in their markets?
    It's all about China's crafty,
    Only China has achieved that,
    China has something even more terrifying,
    Captured by world power and arrogance, China is not getting smaller, does not want deterrent,
    There is still time for China to be caught, they should be asked, only they can correct,

  52. Nothing gets poor people to give away their last dollar like religion.
    Break them from the habit for long enough and they may stay emancipated?
