Over 180 church goers told to self-quarantine after attendee at Mother's Day service tests positive for COVID-19

By J. Edward Moreno - 05/16/20 05:55 PM EDT

The church was violation of the stay-at-home order California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) issued on March 19, which prohibits large public gatherings. Butte County Public Health officials said ignoring the state order could lead to ďmore restrictive measuresĒ as the virus continues to spread in California.



ďAt this time, organizations that hold in-person services or gatherings are putting the health and safety of their congregations, the general public and our local ability to open up at great risk,Ē Danette York, director of Butte County Public Health said in a statement.

Jacobsen told the Post he felt emboldened to host the church service last Sunday because of the relatively little cases in Butte County. The county of over 200,000 people has only 22 cases and no deaths as of Saturday.

ďI already had to cancel our Easter celebration, which is the first Easter from when I received Jesus into my life that I wasnít able to be a church service, and thatís very difficult,Ē he said. ďI see church as a very essential part of my life.Ē

25. I think they are ignorant....and stupid

Education in the USA is a failure. These people think something they can't see can't hurt them. The USA has a populace that has become largely uneducated by modern standards.

Selfish, mindless imbeciles. Just like Jesus taught them to be?

4. Because they don't worship Jesus.

They worship the old testament god, who is a raging asshole with a messiah complex and end of the world tendencies.

" and end of the world tendencies."

You have a great way with words.

Are you also saying that jahweh (or whatever) had hemorrhoids, thought s/he was the do-all, be-all? Sounds like lots of guys (like me....)

15. Not being a bibble-type person but why would this be anti-semitic?

Unless you are interpreting semitic to include Christians, Muslims, Jews or anyone else that nominally says the OT is part of their heritage.

The monotheistic religions are typically male led. And most male focused societies are rather "my way or the other". Perhaps I should have left off that mention of those sacred letters JHWH which seems to trigger convulsions amongst cultists.

22. Abraham was a clever though immoral man.

 

I'm have no idea where the antisemitism may be hiding. But I will say that the "my new god's name is so very very sacred that it is blasphemy to even speak it" was very neat trick on Abrahamís part.

It was one of three very important new developments in the manufacture and marketing of a new in-kind product into an already saturated market for gods.

By introducing the innovation of a god with a name that it was forbidden to speak, Abraham ensured that his name rather than his new godís name would be repeated and thereby glorified, And today, Abraham is the only man who created a god whose name we know.

Like I said, thatís was a pretty cleaver move on Abrahamís part. Although, I'll admit that putting too much validity in anything the bible says is fools play. The game is what it is.

They can even do the collection plate via Venmo.

13. St. Mark's Cathedral in Seattle does a livestreamed service...

...and a "virtual coffee-hour" using Zoom. The service itself has one or two clergy, an organist, four singers, and the broadcast technician/director all spread far apart from each other, well within both state and diocesan guidelines.

I guess I just don't have the religion gene, like these people don't have the empathy gene. I prefer my way.

7. Self elimination seems to be the trend.

Fuck right wingers. Keep on killing yourselves, I think this trend is wonderful.

I do believe in life, but not when it entails death. I will never defend those that seek death. These fuckers need to go.

11. Lock them all in a detention camp until the entire group clears quarantine

Give them full access to food and water and medical care, of course, just like we provide for the asylum seekers currently detained in vast numbers.

14. "Palermo Bible Family Church"...

IMO, any church with both "family" and "bible" in the name is best avoided like the plague...even when there isn't a literal plague.

16. Amen. Add Life, Free, Assembly, God, Lords, Worship, Jesus

Those are just from a 10 mile stretch near my town.

There must be a computer program that generates the names as well as the rotating billboards, pithy sayings, and pulpit rantings. Anything for those tithes!

"Five Glories of the Olive" would make a great name for an Italian restaurant

23. He probably already

had them sign over all their worldly goods to him ahead of time! These creeps are in it for the cash. There is Pat Robertson with his mansion, Franklin Graham with his private jets, Copeland with his mansions and private jets. All multi millionaires at the expense of the trusting souls who believe their gibberish. Con artists.

21. Maybe they should have drank the bleach too...

 

I had forgotten about this verse...

"they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well."
New International Version

But now that I read it again, the first and last parts are bunk so caveat emptor on the middle part as well, I suppose.

In fact all of them and more will be back at that church tomorrow and going out to eat in large groups if they can.
