Kansas Coronavirus Constitutional Debate

Another worthwhile roundup of this controversy that has raised tempers . . . But hopefully not temperatures. Checkit:

Republican Lawmakers in Kansas Revoke Governor's Stay at Home Order Ahead of Easter Services

Republican lawmakers in the Kansas House and Senate voted Wednesday to revoke the governor's executive order limiting gatherings to fewer than 10 people. Republicans in the state had denounced the order by governor Laura Kelly, a Democrat, as an unconstitutional infringement on religious liberty due to the anticipated damper it would put on Easter Sunday services.

If we can have Walmart and Target open with certain rules then churches should be allowed open with rules.

If the Bill of Rights can be suspended, then we don’t have any rights

No effing rules. Does this gigantic hoax not yet clearly demonstrate it was primarily fearmongering more than ANYTHING else? Let the Church lemmings shut down their own crap if they want to. I don't know a single Church not shut down, but that is THEIR choice, not some prog anti-Christian zealot guv. I know several Churches that, like many other small biz, won't open again. They're done.

The GOP is the pro-death party.

Trump's getting his wish. Get to your local death panel meeting on Easter Sunday.

Wait 'til they're all inside, then block the exits. Drill holes in the roof and drop in crackers and wine for the duration.
