Open our churches and give us our Freedom back!
The ongoing and evolving saga of the Coronavirus illustrates the seldom discussed truth about modern medicine which is that there is simply a lot more about medicine that we don’t know than we do know. What is taken as truth today may be banished tomorrow. When perceived scientific facts about the Coronavirus change, calculations of risk vs. benefit will also change. We have to make such calculations as a society rather than on an individual level; hence the debate over “Essential vs. Nonessential” services.
Most of us still believe in the core concepts of liberty and Freedom. As written by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.” These are rights which cannot be taken away by kings, politicians, or other tyrants. Thus, the vast majority of us who believe in these words view religion, faith, and church as essential services.
President Trump is now being attacked for defining church services as Essential, which would allow people to make their own decision of whether or not they wish to attend. The core of this debate is about much more than a virus. The core of this debate will answer the question…Do the people fear the government or does the government fear the people? The former is tyranny. The latter is Freedom. True American leaders need to take a bold stand for Freedom! #essential #church #freedom
