Congregants Fine $500 Each At Drive In Service

This is ridiculous!

These people were separated in cars with their windows rolled up, listening to the service broadcasted on an FM station.

Mayor Errick Simmons has expressly prohibited both congregational services and drive-in services. His executive order actually states that churches must be closed.

This goes well beyond the CDC guidelines and even beyond the MS Governor's state guidelines. This is a tyrannical act against churches in MS.

I read an update on the city's FB page that the Mayor held a meeting with city church Pastors and leaders, claimed little Greenville was having too many cases from people gathering for church, funerals, and celebrations. To date, there's been 1 death linked to COVID there.

Re: Congregants Fine $500 Each At Drive In Service

Drive in church getting tickets for gathering....so much for the bowing, complying, liberal Christian's arguing that its wisdom to give up right to assemble and find other alternatives....next stop >>>online services wont last much longer.....it would surprise me if they make it another couple years. Oh they probably will just suggest toning down the content of the sermons....to which the sheeple will say "this is wisdom, it gives us an opportunity to think outside the box as to how we hold services" lol rofl,......outside the box in this manner leads out of the will of God.

I saw this yesterday! I agree with you. Absolutely ridiculous for them to give 500 tickets to everyone. They will fight and most likely win!

They are just trying to save lives why would you condemn then for giving out tickets. If you were alive in 1917-18 you probably wound not even have a car or a radio.

Ridiculous? Tyranny? Nonsense. They can just Facebook live-stream it, everyone can stay home, and avoid getting a fine.

Right?

This is actually the diference between the early 1900's pandemic and now. In those pandemics you walk outside and you witness it first hand.
In this pandemic you watch unreliable sources through electronic media. I gurantee noone in the 1900's went into quarantine based upon an unverified newspaper article. Especially reading about it in say...Memphis Tn newspaper and it be an article about New York.....the people in Memphis would continue life as normal.
