Minnesota’s Catholic Churches Will Resume Public Masses in Defiance of Ongoing Stay-at-Home Order

The bishops are reopening the church.

Minnesota’s Catholic bishops are preparing to reopen their churches to public masses and liturgies, citing the state’s Democratic governor’s refusal to commit to a specific reopening plan as just cause to disobey the state government’s stay-at-home order.

A letter on the resumption of church operation from the statewide conference of Catholic bishops authorizes parishes to resume public gatherings on May 26th. The bishops cited the draconian nature of Governor Tim Walz’s ban on gatherings, pointing to its prohibition on any religious gatherings that have more than ten people present.

An order that sweeps so broadly that it prohibits, for example, a gathering of 11 people in a Cathedral with a seating capacity of several thousand defies reason,stated Minnesota’s six Catholic bishops. “Therefore, we have chosen to move forward in the absence of any specific timeline laid out by Governor Walz and his Administration. We cannot allow an indefinite suspension of the public celebration of the Mass.

The bishops are retaining a broad set of safety-oriented restrictions on church operation, including a limitation of parish capacity at one third of maximum. The faithful are still dispensed from their normal obligation to attend Sunday mass as a result of the health pandemic.

Religious organizations throughout America were generally among the first institutions to suspend their congregations as a result of the epidemic, but religious leaders and pastors are increasingly skeptical of remaining closed indefinitely at the whims of largely progressive governors who are unwilling to stake out an exit strategy.

More than 1,200 Christian pastors in California are vowing to hold in-person religious services in spite of the state’s broad restrictions on gatherings, suggesting that the state’s Christian community has all but had it with Governor Newsom’s hardcore stay-at-home order.

Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds Refuses to Implement Widespread Mask Mandates and Bar Closures Over Newest COVID-19 Panic

Another Republican governor with courage.

Published

on

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds (R) is refusing to implement Draconian mask mandates and bar closures despite recent reports that cases are surging throughout the state.

According to a report in The Guardian, cases of COVID-19 are spiking throughout Iowa. Ames and Iowa City, two college towns, are reportedly being hit hard due to young people refusing to live their lives in fear.

“Community transmission continues to be high in rural and urban counties across Iowa, with increasing transmission in the major university towns,” a fear-mongering report from the White House coronavirus task force warned. “Mask mandates across the state must be in place to decrease transmission.”

Reynolds thus far is not bucking to political pressure that would lock down the state, crippling small businesses and making a mockery of the Bill of Rights and Constitution. She has only closed bars in six counties throughout the state while just “strongly encouraging” people to wear masks, arguing that they are “not a silver bullet.”

“I still believe it’s up to the governors in the various states to make those decisions,” Reynolds said in her refusal to let the feds usurp her authority.

Reynolds believes that it is “social activity among young adults” that is causing the virus to spread more quickly. Young people are the least likely to die from COVID-19, with new figures released by the CDC indicating that the vast majority of people who died from the virus had serious comorbidities. The facts, however, are not stopping the fear cultists from arguing for another shutdown.

“Our numbers are clearly terrifying,” said University of Iowa associate professor Naomi Greyser to CNN. “They’re really scary and my students are scared.” Greyser and other academics hope to get paid by the taxpayer for not doing their jobs this school year because of COVID-19.

Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa is casting doubt on the numbers that are being reported by medical professionals.

“These healthcare providers and others are reimbursed at a higher rate if Covid is tied to it, so what do you think they’re doing?” Ernst said.

Although the Iowa Medical Society called Ernst’s comments “incredibly disappointing,” there have been many reports of case numbers being exaggerated or falsified throughout the country, as Big League Politics has noted:

Many states are inflating their reports of COVID-19 cases by counting positive antibody tests among those who have the illness, according to a report from Nicole Saphier, M.D…

This has reportedly resulted in people being counted twice due to testing positive for COVID-19 and then testing positive for having antibodies.

Making the situation even more of a cluster, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have claimed that antibody tests are wrong at least half of the time.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about grouping persons residing in or being admitted to congregate settings, such as schools, dormitories, or correctional facilities,” the CDC wrote in their guidelines.

“Serologic test results should not be used to make decisions about returning persons to the workplace,” they continued.

“In most of the country, including areas that have been heavily impacted, the prevalence of SARS-CoV-2 antibody is expected to be low, ranging from less than 5% to 25%, so that testing at this point might result in relatively more false positive results and fewer false-negative results,” the CDC determined.

The Republicans of Iowa are showing the backbone that is needed to prevented America from permanently losing all of her liberties due to COVID-19 mass hysteria.
