President Trump demanded that Governors allow churches, synagogues, mosques, and other places of worship to hold services.
“The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now, for this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors,” President Trump said.
Places of worship should not be able to hold services because the congregation might not be safe. If the congregation did not listen to instructions before the pandemic, it’s possible they will not listen during the pandemic?
Also, it would be a serious risk to the lives of many people as well as communities. I feel that this decision should be left up to the Pastor or Priest and the Lord, not the political leaders.
