Encircled, if this report is as accurate as the one posted yesterday, it's probably inaccurate.
And if there are 14 states that have done this, which would be a surprise, many or most religious groups are observing the countermeasures voluntarily.
Most places that I know of suspended meetings at least three weeks ago.
There have been a few notable exceptions (lamentably) but they are comparatively few and far between, judging from the reports I've read or heard.
This is genuinely terrifying.
"It's probably inaccurate" is a really bogus thing to say to someone when you are comparing a news-link from a fellow formite only to reports that you've read\heard... What Encircled shared was from CNN...
Yup. If you watch Fox News (not saying you do btw!) then you would have a totally different view to the crisis.
You might think that going to church is still ok for example.
I read Fox news and Daily Wire and Briebart. Guess that makes me a brainwashed right winger from your perspective.
I also read CNN for entertainment and a look at how the leftists are slanting their presentation of the news.
As CR pointed out, most religious institutions have suspended group services voluntarily, regardless of whether, or not, their Governors, as our Florida Governor has done, allows them to continue to congregate.
There will always be a fringe few, under any mandated restrictions, that refuse to obey voluntary guidelines. There will even be some who defy mandatory guidelines. Using a few examples that have had the spotlight of scrutiny shined upon them by them by the media as representative of the whole is short sighted.
