There has been significant grumbling on social media regarding Gov. Andy Beshear’s suggestion that churches consider canceling services due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The implication was that the governor wanted to burden churches and tell them what to do because he is a Democrat who does not like churchgoing people.

First, Mr. Beshear is a deacon in his church and likely made his statement out of Christian concern for the health of Kentuckians. Second, those who ignore this threat to public health should heed the lesson from Italy, where the lack of response has caused hospitals to be overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients and has led to needless deaths.

Enough Already

His "church" is heretical and refuses to acknowledge and call out sin including abortion and homosexual marriage.

So the question is: if you are a deacon in an organization full of heretics how does that make you noble?

Answer: It doesn't. It just makes you a leader in an organization full of heretics who have mislabeled themselves a church.

Don't even go there pal. What does your theology say about liars and hypocrites. You are in no position to cast stones.

"First, Mr. Beshear is a deacon in his church and likely made his statement out of Christian concern for the health of Kentuckians."

One never sets that logic to management's prerogatives and the prerogatives of the employees. Odd that people want to do that with the creator's perogatives.
