Sigh. What is it with conservative Christian churches? A Wisconsin state senator (a Republican, of course) asked Gov. Tony Evers to ease the ban on gatherings of more than 10 people for churches.
Why are they doing it? They are doing it because they are adhering to one of the fundamental principles of the Religious Right. And that is to deny science. So it makes sense that these are the churches putting their congregations in what is often mortal danger.
Given this religious minority’s focus on believing the right thing in order to leave this world for a better one in the next, it is one way to speed that trip for vulnerable members of their congregations. But it also puts the community at large in danger.
Meanwhile, mainstream demoninaiions, including the Catholic Church the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the United Methodist Church and other mainstream denominations have shifted to online services.
But this might make a few members of these congregations have second thoughts about questioning the merits of science. And once they start to take a step down that road, it may lead to another.
