Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here.
We have been little homebodies in an attempt to reduce exposure to Covid. It is important to follow our leadership in wise counsel in relation to mandates.
I started out this epidemic wondering at the validity of it all until folks we knew started dying from it.
Protection of the at risk is important.
I can only speak of the world that I see around me and it is this I describe;
Our church congregation has worked very hard in protecting the at risk from exposure to COVID and at this time utilization of online services is our method of attending.
Many, if not all of the people I worship with carry the weight and burden of the souls that are lost from Covid and are prayerful day and night.
I do have a concern I will make public. A few of you have demonstrated in your blogs that the religious, having been reassured of their right to assemble, are the cause of Covid, we are cultists, and we should wear bands on our arms to identify us.
I was shocked to see these things written by those I have conversed with.
Some of those same people have liked my posts and commented here.
Shame on you for saying these things. That behaviour is not welcome here.
If you do not believe in God or a higher power, that is your choice, but I will not stand idly by and not address this.
It was nearly a century ago, so here is a little history reminder for those who need a refresher about armbands.
For those of you who may have not read the first amendment, I quote:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That is all I have at the moment. I sit disappointed and have doused the Campfire for the night.
