Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The most stupid will be eliminated, it's called selection of species 😉

Howard-Browne is not alone in refusing to curtail in-person worship services despite public health orders designed to stop the virus from spreading. Churches in Ohio, Kentucky and Louisiana have continued to invite worshippers in recent days because at least half a dozen states offer some degree of exemption for faith in their orders to shutter non-essential activity during the pandemic.

The county and governor's orders require gatherings, including those held by faith-based groups, to be fewer than 10 people to limit the spread of Covid-19. A livestream of Sunday's three-and-a-half-hour service showed scores of congregants. In a Facebook post, Howard-Browne said coronavirus "is blown totally way out of proportion".

On 18 March, the church called its ministry an essential service, just like police and firefighters, and said it would keep its doors open.

In a Facebook video Sunday, Howard-Browne said: "It looks like we're going to have to go to court over this because the church is encroached from every side."

Unfortunately intelligence is not always selected for. The physical attributes supporting intelligence take a lot of feeding and maintenance. Many creatures have demonstrated significant intellect over the millennia, but few have propagated reliably. Indeed, indiscriminate propagation is likely as good a way to cast progeny into the future as any, and I can't think of a religion which discourages rapid propagation. It's the easiest way to gain market share.

And his attorneys call themselves Liberty Counsel.  "We got us a KKKonstitooshunul rat to spread disease!"  No you don't, assholes.  You may practice the brain rot you call your religion, but that is the extent of the public health threat you may inflict.
