Celebrating Kansas City Palm Sunday



This Holy Week will be remarkably different and historic. One of the most contentious debates of the pandemic struggles to balance religious freedom with public health concern and restrictive orders against gatherings of any sort. Thankfully, tech and social media livestream efforts allow the the faithful to consider these philosophical issues from the comfort and safety of their homes.

Here's a glimpse at how some faith communities are adjusting, enduring and opposing coronavirus edicts in Kansas City and across the nation:

KMBC: Places of worship in Kansas City offering livestreamed services this weekend

The Leaven: Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

KSHB: Churches adjusting on Palm Sunday

Crux: Opening Holy Week under quarantine, Pope tells suffering, ‘You are not alone’

Guardian: The US churches undermining coronavirus containment efforts

The Kansas City Atheist Coalition is calling for shutting Churches down. Of course, they wanted to do this long before the epidemic. They have simply weaponized this for their own political purposes.

Pandemic, part of gawd's mysterious ways and "plan", but have faith and pass the plate or call in your donations (before you get sick).

I pray to Joe Pesche and Sol.

10:03 asks why? Did you really think we could just sit back while 50 Million innocents were killed...and hundreds of thousands more every year...and simply get away with it? Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor?

All suffering is atonement for sin.

Periods of promiscuity and licentiousness are followed by wars and depressions.

Corruption of public officials will lead to community suffering.

"When the wicked are in authority, the people mourn."

Today is the day all Christians pray Herr Byron ends up in hell where he belongs with all the other Nazi lovers.

^^^When did you know you failed? I mean running ignorant on a blog for dying geriatrics all day is one thing, but to do it continuously in lieu of a meaningful existence is another.

Jesus holding a gun, thank you Jesus for an image that's bound to make Byron's head explode. You see Jesus knows guns are good and it's people that can be bad.

Byron is that hack semi retired lawyer living in Raytown. He is NOT who you think he is. But go ahead and pretend if you get off on it.
