The quote in the OP is slightly misleading. Joe Carter has absolutely no idea when church buildings will reopen.

I was sitting here just now, all sad and low, until Joe told me about the medical, political and psychological factors at play. Now, with that context, I'm happy again.

Thanks, Joe!

He's crazy if he thinks the country can sustain a lockdown through May.

I know you'll probably chalk this up to conspiracy theory, but I deeply suspect that is the purpose! The coronavirus shut down, especially that promoted by the media and the Democrat party (I apologize for repeating myself there), is about 25% real concern, and about 75% a way to get rid of Trump by wrecking the county under his watch.

You know, I was thinking this morning, that abortion alone kills more than COVID-19 ever has and hopefully ever will....

I believe Hanlon's Razor is more applicable to the shutdown: "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

That is a great idea that I follow often. However, in this case the media is definitely full of malice for the president, and vice versa with respect to the media who are out to get him. The Democrats also would like nothing more than to report 24 hours a day about the "recession" so that Trump will lose reelection. There is no "recession." We turned off the economy ON PURPOSE to avoid a disease. Watch 15 minutes of MSNBC and you will conclude it is deliberate.
