A quick one. First, sorry I completely disappeared this last few days and some of last week. I was felled by a stomach virus so awful I had to be rehydrated several times at the hospital, and I kept ending up on the floor of the kitchen wailing because I could neither cook or eat. Then my husband Jim had to have follow up surgery on his shoulder to remove the screws from the original shoulder break surgery. You could literally say he had “screws loose.” We are both literally much better today.
So I’m back with a short one this morning. Saw this everywhere literally and it’s from Sean Feucht of Bethel Redding’s social media. Remember all those crazy plague ratting actions of Sean’s, leading these huge outdoor worship events where people are packed in shoulder to shoulder without masking? Yes, he’s still at it, but now he’s apparently patting himself on the back about holding one right on the steps of the California Capitol.
Here’s my question. Not even talking of the fact that a supposedly committed Christian is going around deliberately causing others to be exposed to a deadly virus, and encouraging law breaking. Here it is. Sean, who the heck is trying to stop you from worshiping? No one.
The thing going on here is that Sean is deliberately indulging in that popular sport in the Evangelical church – good Christian martyrbating. They love to do this! No one is stopping him, he’s outside which does not violate the rules against indoor church services. He could be worshiping at home, or anywhere and there is not a law in California against it. Railing against a machine that does not even exist.
The closest Sean can make the claim he’s being discriminated against is that today’s planned worship concert in Seattle cannot happen due to the park making the decision to close the park to stop it. They are rightly concerned for the safety of their citizens, it’s not some leftist pinko move by a socialist government, no matter what a right wing rag newspaper tries to claim.
Is it foolish and likely dangerous? Oh yes, but no one is making any attempt to stop him. It’s not at all like the legal scrimmages going on between Grace’s John MacArthur, Los Angeles county and the state of California where MacArthur is in open rebellion against the established health dept. regulations of the state.
Sean says God’s not finished with California yet? That’s true, He’s clearly not done allowing a virus that spreads through close contact from spreading to more people through Feucht’s actions.
On a side ramble, those vainglorious ignoramuses at Pulpit and Pen are moving. Apparently they are upset that Facebook and other social media marks their stories as ‘Fake News’ and will not allow them much of a share. They are moving to Protestia instead. Here’s the thing, they could just report things factually and this would not even be a problem for them instead of some big vile vast left wing conspiracy. They’ve had so many recent strikes against the site for their fake news and content thievery that they have been stricken by Google. Good. Here’s hoping the same thing happens quickly to the new site. They are avoiding FB and other places that caused problems for P&P. How courageous. Someone calls you out for virtual cow piling so you run away and set up shop elsewhere.
