Trump tells states to open places of worship.

Donald Trump has stated that places of worship are deemed essential during the Covid-19 pandemic where the virus  is known to transmit to others in close proximity to each other.  Which is why the majority of the world is practicing social distancing!

America however seem to believe otherwise. Donald Trump in particular as well as his disillusion followers. 

However at this point in the pandemic, for those of us that research and actually practice reading and listening to news sources other than solely Fox news, than you probably have a better understanding of this virus and as such should be free to make your own choice as to whether or not you wish to attend a place of worship that potentially does not give you the option to social distance.  Your choice.

However, what a lot of people are failing to realize is that the consequences of spreading this virus could be fatal, maybe not for you personally, but for someone you know.  That is what the danger is here and that is why social distancing should remain in place, even in places of worship.

Donald Trump is digging himself into a deeper and deeper hole during this pandemic and has shown that he is a untrustworthy and unreliable leader. (Some of us knew that before).   It is almost as though he is setting himself up to lose in the upcoming election on purpose.  

If you are truly religious, my belief is that you don't need to attend a church or temple etc in order to practice your religion. You can do it from anywhere and at any time, thus making places of worship essential a void argument.

This is my opinion. Others may disagree. They may say it is their right to attend.  But is it their right to potentially spread a contagious virus that could kill another person?   This isn't about rights, this is about a health matter and it is time for people to stop being so selfish.  Yes, go back to work, see your friends etc, but do so safely and with measures in places to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Not that difficult really!
