God Complex

“President Donald Trump on Friday demanded that governors reopen churches, synagogues and mosques ‘right now,’ and threatened to ‘override’ state leaders’ restrictions if they do not do so by the weekend.”

+ “After receiving a formal warning from the United States Justice Department over church closures, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said his state is ‘weeks away’ from allowing in-person religious services to resume.”

+ Mississippi church fighting coronavirus restrictions burned to the ground. (This is all so crazy. Even in this divided, hateful era, we can’t see that, when it comes to fighting the pandemic, we’re all on the exact same side.)

+ In other news at the intersection of politics and God, Joe Biden told interviewer Charlamagne Tha God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” (This is a pretty bad gaffe. Biden meant to say, “then you ain’t American.”)
