Inspired Kansas Church Lockdown Loophole



A glimpse at faith community creativity . . .

Raw Story: Kansas pastor finds ‘loophole’ in order limiting church services by saying all guests are ‘part of the choir’

Deets:

"But Risen Savior Lutheran Church, in Basehor, Kansas, a suburb outside of Kansas City, Rev. Robert Weinkauf found a loophole, saying that in the executive order, it doesn’t count choir members, church pastors or readers. So, the pastor said that every member of his church are members of the choir or “musical performers,” so they can have as large a group as they want."

You decide . . .

Because one of the commandments actually read, Thou shall not lie, except cheating and loopholes are fine.

Because there is LOTS of unconstitutional basis for an anti-religious governor’s edict.

"Congress shall make no law ..."

It doesn't mention governors or bloggers.

Byron, you fail at constitutional law. The 14th Amendment incorporated the Bill of Rights to the States.

Just because you call it a choir that doesn't make it so.

A very stable genius can outsmart God.

Then why aren't the grifter preachers whining about the law that lets them suck at the nanny state teet tax-free?

Why do Republicans want to kill religious people???

I'd expect these kinds of shenanigans from hardcore Baptists or other 'fringe' religious groups but I always thought the Lutherans were pretty pragmatic. Sigh....SMDH.

Lunatic Fringes are endemic to any "Religious Domination", it takes a modest amount of lunacy to accept the basic concepts, so thee are always those who will push the outside of the envelope.

^^^^^ (Sorry, should have been "there", not "thee" - guess its a result of "losing my "Rs" in the Market!)

I'm going to keep preaching unless I'm in jail or the hospital.

I'm dead now.
