It is amazing that you have ordered the closure of Houses of Worship.
Governor, did you not learn much about religion in your education?
Look at the pogroms in Russia, Hitler’s persecution of Jews, Marx and Stalin’s attempt at killing Christianity, the mid-East’s war on Religion, etc., etc., etc.
None of them destroyed religion, no matter how badly the people were persecuted.
Apparently you are unaware our Country, The United States of America, was founded on the precept of FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
That is one of the reasons why our Forefathers immigrated here. Granted, they did not state freedom of Christianity. They decreed Freedom of Religion – all religions.
Keeping that in mind, we find it ludicrous that you allow protesting, without masks, yet try to deny us our Country’s inalienable right of Worship.
We will NOT stand for our Houses of Worship being closed down. Nor will we agree with “orders” to not attend in person, to not sing, or worship in the manner sacred to our beliefs.
I have to ask: Are you are counting on your orders to help fuel the fires of revolt that are raging across our Nation? Are you aligned with the Marxist Left minions that are trying to bring down and destroy our U.S.? Is your stand the same as the Left’s final goal of another Civil War, thereby giving all Leftists the chance to step in and take power?
If so, do you really expect it to end there? Are you so shallow that you expect us, We The People, to stand by and meekly accept whatever leadership after its having destroyed our U.S.?
If so, you sadly underestimate us.
These are not threats. These are promises:
We will NOT let you take away our right to Worship!
We will NOT quit in our defense of our Nation!
