Prznint Stupid, who sometimes refers to hisself as “The Chosen One” and regularly calls in Vanilla ISIS to lay hands on him and avails hisself of the POTUS Shield and other self-declared prophets to intercede on his behalf, has decided that the return of white shoes, er, Memorial Day Weekend is now Holy (and trust me: that’s not scriptural) and therefore is demanding a separation of Church and State (which ought to really confuse the Xristian Xrazies), per Axios’ afternoon email thingie:
President Trump announced Friday that he was declaring churches and places of worship as “essential places that provide essential services,” and said that he would override governors to allow them to open “right now.”
What he’s saying: “Some governors have deemed liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential, but have left out churches and other houses of worship. It’s not right,” Trump said from the White House podium.
- “The governors need to do the right thing and allow these very important essential places of faith to open right now. For this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors,” he added.
Lots’a luck, buddy. There is no way to do that that I am aware of. I mean you can mean-tweet at them, but I think that’s all you got. And besides: since you washed your hands
of the blood of Christ, er, any responsibility to manage the Trump-Virus and turned that over to the states, it seems unlikely you REALLY wanna take responsibility now, you know, that infections are sparking after two weeks of Possum Hollar breaking curfew.
So, no: this is just another Jump for Jeebus attempt to grift the fetus-fondling Gawd Botherers that you are one of ’em. Send donations now!
UPDATE 1 (Another Axios Alert thingie):
- A CDC case study out this week said 35 of the 92 people who attended services at a rural Arkansas church in March tested positive for COVID-19, killing three.
