“Health experts and politicians can pretend protesters and congregations spread the virus differently. The media can spin choirs as cesspools of infection and Christians as grandma-killers, and churches can continue to cower in fear of government power and the possibility of being misunderstood by anti-religious bigots.

(Kylee Zemple – The Federalist) The coronavirus pandemic has made little liars out of our Sunday school selves. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine,” we sang. “Hide it under a bushel? No! I’m gonna let it shine. Don’t let Satan blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.”
Instead of shining amid fear and uncertainty, churches have closed their doors, trading cowering under a bushel for hiding behind a mask, and allowing anti-religious government tyrants and their petty orders to blow out the lights. For a time, compliance was warranted as we learned more about whether coronavirus is as lethal as some feared, but not anymore. Some churches have decided it’s time to shine again, and they’re right. It’s time to open the doors.
