Yet again, someone needs to explain to Trump that there are limits to his power. He's the President, not Grand Poobah.

Yet again, someone needs to explain to Trump that there are limits to his power. 

He's not using power, he's relinquishing it.

America isn't North Korea.

"If they don't do it, I will override the governors. In America, we need more prayer, not less," he said.

Yes, more prayers.  That should fix it.

And here is why this is another dumb idea (church in Arkansas last week):

In total, 92 people attended the church events leading to 35 people later being confirmed to have contracted COVID-19. Three of the attendees at these events died. The investigation states those who tested positive ranged from under 18 years of age to over 65 with the majority being between 19 to 64-years-old.

In addition, another 26 people were confirmed to have contracted coronavirus among members in the community who had contact with those who attended church events

And that is from just one church.

If liquor stores can be open, so can be places of worship.

"He has no authority to do this. The governors are in no sense subordinates of the president," said Robert Chesney, a professor at the University of Texas School of Law.

The governors have no right to ignore the Constitution. People have a right to gather to worship. It can be done safely.

Uh, no, revival.

I think it's a good question as to why these governors are letting businesses reconvene at half capacity but restricting religious congregations to 10 people are less?

It seems like a blatant assault on religion and freedom of assembly.

-20 ( +5 / -25 )

but did not say under what authority he would act to force the reopening of religious facilities.

Hail the emperor! Once again Trump's confusing the role of a president with that of an authoritarian royal in his ongoing attempts to undermine the Constitution's balance and separation of powers. He is the grave digger of the republic.

It seems like a blatant assault on religion and freedom of assembly.

That's a perspective. Part of the reason governments are being cautious is because no one knows for certain what more this virus can do; they've found it spreads person to person easily. The costs of the virus are staggering, and governments are picking up most of the costs.

Physical distancing is seen as a way to limit its spread. Maybe some churches have the capacity to keep worshippers 2 meters apart.

If you're American you're well aware we're a litigious society. I'm sure governments at all levels fear the lawsuits coming from this virus. If governments say it's OK to go back to work or to gather in churches or wherever and someone gets sick after having done so, I have little doubt we'll hear that great America whine 'I'm gonna sue!'

That's understandable. But when you allow liqour stores, gun stores, and abortion clinics to still operate; yet you specifically ban religious congregations--well, I'm no more righteous than the next guy, but even a blind atheist can see the moral discrepancy here.

Can you point out to me where in the Constitution it states that places of worship must stay open during a pandemic?

Yes we need to fill the places of Worship now it cant wait any longer people not going to church is hurting the economy...

Weird how black people overwhelming support Biden, 

Hold your horses there. Did you see the video interview Biden just did on the breakfast club with Charlemagne tha God? Where Charlemagne intimated that Biden shouldn't depend on the black vote so casually this time around. To which Biden replied, "if you're still wondering who to vote for than you ain't black. " So, contrary to what you say, it seems our white presidential candidates are qualified to tell us who's black or not depending on who black people vote for. Can't get anymore racist.

And he's right. Look at the overwhelming support for Biden by the black folk. Like, a 20% lead over Trump and the Republacist party.

Are you saying that large congregations of people pack together closely for an hour or more and sing loudly in unison — in liquor stores?

I just read a piece in Politico about how Trump’s approval ratings for his pandemic response have plummeted among religious conservatives. Trump is again willing to sacrifice people’s lives for the sake of his own re-election.

What a pathetic man. Trump doesn’t have a religious bone in his body. Totally disingenuous.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

Some might say our beloved president, trump has failed miserably in containing the virus , that is why he is trying to appeal to the so called religious right.

However I am sure it’s because our beloved president, trump is very religious.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

The hypocrisy of it all ... the agnostic, amoral, unethical current occupant of the White House is only after getting his religious followers to vote for him.

Nothing more than one more trick of his nonstop reelection campaign.

Maybe if churches reopen, they should not have choirs practice.

People are well aware of the risks. Let them choose for themselves. It’s not as if the vast majority will not be taking precautions. What is much worse than people making a free choice by going to church was the Governor of NY forcing recovering pandemic patients back into nursing homes leading to many more deaths than necessary. These people had no choice and neither did those who died as a result.

How will he talk his way out of this...

Trump likes to sound like he's taking the holy high road on this issue, but he could end up killing even more people than he already has. Maybe he's trying to outdo himself.

People can pray at home just as easily and they can send money to support their local churches. God will understand! The president certainly doesn't.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

He can't! This is just an appeal to the right-wing evangelical nut-cases in Merica' that THINK what ever Trump says is law!

Actually the defeat of the states rights argument in the 1960s in the Federal enforcement of civil rights argues in favor of Trumps view. Freedom of religion is a civil right. It is enshrined in the Bill of Rights. It’s the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. Due to precedent, civil rights is no longer considered to be within the domain of states rights. That’s the segregationists’ argument. Trump will win if he pushes this.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

@Serrano The governors have no right to ignore the Constitution. ..What are you on about again your man has been doing that since he took office...

I take it you have NEVER actually read the constitution! Trump plays on your ignorance and everyone else's who thinks what he says is fact!

5 ( +7 / -2 )

Our beloved president, trump has shown nothing but compassion and kindness to his fellow humans.

He has the greatest respect for immigrants and minorities, he puts women on a pedestal and the disabled, especially disabled reporters, have received nothing but love and encouragement from him.

So there is no surprise he wants Churches to be open, what else can you expect from such a moral man!!

Sarcasm runs deep in this one! Sadly too many ignorant disciples of Trump believe this horse-crap!

5 ( +8 / -3 )

It’s good optics when Trump is seen as wanting churches open while liberals want them closed. Black churches are also where outside information is reshared by the pastor to the community. information like Biden’s racial comments for those who didn’t hear them

-10 ( +2 / -12 )

But when you allow liqour stores, gun stores, and abortion clinics to still operate; yet you specifically ban religious congregations

Nobody spends one hour sitting in an abortion clinic with 50 other people, breathing the same stale covid filled air. Are you really going to pretend that the use of and time spent in the facilities you mention really has nothing to do with the opening of one and closing of the other? Churches need to be closed for the same reason that off-off Broadway theaters and punk live houses need to stay closed. But of course you can't use punk live houses to make astonishingly hypocritical virtue signalling arguments.

Trump claims he will over rule State governors if they disobey his commandment saying America needs more prayer. Like Moses on the mountain, ordered by God.

Will you be supporting Trump this Sunday and attend church for prayer? And remember the donation plate.

People who equate church to a Broadway play or live house might wanna sit this one out. Church is critical part of the community infrastructure in rural and suburban areas. even more so in black communities.

And this has absolutely nothing to do with their architecture and space management issues during a pandemic, which is the only reason for the closing of all three of those examples.

The old orange Pharisee, focused on his reelection propects, is just pandering to his base. Ironically, they will be the ones most likely to heed HMV and congregate in churches putting themselves most at risk for contracting corona.

And Biden's gaffe is just more of his trade-mark malarkey, another sign of his slowing wits. He's obviously never heard of OITNB.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

no, you might want to revisit the mocking and derision towards people (assumed Trump voters) who simply want to go to their house of worship (church).

Tells me all I need to know that the words mosque and synagogue have not been used in the comments, despite being included in the article. If you take out Christian and replace with "Jew" or take out "church" and replace with "mosque", you would easily see how reprehensible some of the statements actually are.

Would you mock someone who wants to go to mosque this weekend with such flippant comments? Would you treat their religion with derision? you wouldnt dare.

-9 ( +1 / -10 )

Biden is basically the nominee due to having one influential person in the black community endorse him, then using the community churches to get the word out.

This same unofficial community of churchgoers can also make Biden not the nominee anymore. Charlamagne is more of an urban influencer, but with the internet the word is already out to the community. I am sure the younger generation will be discussing these comments before/after church services as this is quite common to have social commentary involved with chuchgoing.

So I guess its critical that at least the black churches stay closed a while longer until Bidens comments blow over, or until he chooses a black female VP as an attempt at contrition. (new slogan: you dont have to vote for me, but vote for her!)

again, not allowing people to go to church is not the same as not allowing broadway play attendance or going to a punk live house. No where even close to the same.

Liquor store, weed store, abortion clinic, all essential. Church? non-essential? That doesnt fly in many parts of the USA.

Walmart and the big box stores are supposedly safe. Been open the entire pandemic and I have never heard of one of them starting a new cluster. So why dont we attend church and vote in person at Walmart?

The needy need to work and our beloved president, trump will start working one day.

The President is working, he’s not playing golf.

The democrats , on the other hand, want to keep the people of the country safe.

By not letting people go to work, poverty kills...well, at any rate, 2 more weeks maximum and the Dems plans on keeping people on lockdown will ultimately fail.

They sure have their priorities wrong !!!

...When it comes to people wanting to work....

The Las Vegas strip is reopening June 4. So time for liberals to just give up the ghost of lockdown past and let people go about their business and regain their personal freedoms and liberties. to include religious activities.

By winter, coronavirus will just be another virus that some people catch and get sick from. Especially if Dems win the election, thats the end of the daily death count tracker.

Well, I guess it's understandable if you say you're an evangelical yet support a guy who hangs put with porn stars...

regardless, no need for the back and forth.

Trump "wins" this one, as liberals are actively speaking out against churches reopening. People continue to end up in the strangest positions when its mandatory to take the opposite side of Trump every time. (weed store open! church closed)

Churches are not just the evangelical vote, but a large portion of the black, Hispanic and suburban votes as well. Then once you included synagogues and mosques, even more people are negatively affected by closures.

Hopefully voters of all religions (not just evangelicals) will remember on election day who is trying to allow them their freedom of religion and who is denying it.

oh you mean those personal attacks on my chosen religion and my closely held, personal religious beliefs? to include how and where the government supposedly "allows" me and people like me to worship?

last week:

Despite a wave of critical news coverage and Democratic catcalls, President Trump sits at his “highest” approval in the latest Gallup survey, and above where four of the last six presidents, including Barack Obama and George W. Bush, were at this point of the first term.

After two weeks of bad news on the coronavirus and economic front, Trump maintained his 49% approval rating, and his disapproval crept up just 1 point, to 48% in the Gallup survey of adults, a broad test.

Gallup said that Trump’s approval is “tied for the best of his presidency.”
