Louisiana pastor defies coronavirus order, draws over 1,000 people to services

"The virus, we believe, is politically motivated," Tony Spell said. "We hold our religious rights dear and we are going to assemble no matter what someone says."

2. DO NOT come crying to us when you come down with it......

How stupid can people be?

Defy suggestions to stay safe, and then get others sick 1,000 fold and on down the line.

3. Stupid, stupid people and Louisanna that is now a hot spot. Probably more New Orleans, but still.

Resources are being overwhelmed and that would be the whole of the state.

4. Realistically. . .

is there any way we'll hear truthful information about those who become infected and die as a result?

On balance, this doesn't really bother me, except for the part that any one person has the potential to infect scores, and so on.

So, if they attended church and just stayed there? I'm fine with that.

Am I a bad person?

5. Of course he had his "service" - Car payments, kid's college fees, alimony, etc.

Con men need their audiences

6. However, Jesus will understand if you need to stay home and just send in your tithe.

8. Well, as one pastor who told folks to come on down to his church said:

"If you get sick and die, you'll know you died for Jesus!"

Hallelujah Amen!



Just for the record, I am now, in my dotage, a lifelong-Southern-Baptist-turned Atheist.

Still trying to process the mindset that those of us over 70 should gladly lay down our lives for the sake of the economy.

10. science is the answer to your prayers

I heard Nancy Pelosi say that this morning during her press conference, and I'd never heard it before.

For a very religious person, I do admire Nancy's trust in science.
