Some Churches got the PPE loans. Personally I think it's a push by congregation members who serve on the finance committees and people who are super lonely and miss fellowship and people who will push their social agendas that are like echo chambers away from Fox News.

Because some people don't actually worship a deity as much as they do corporate worship. The church building, culture, leadership, and groups ARE the religion. They can't see beyond their little microcosm, so they, in turn, believe it to be not just a drop in the bucket but the entire bucket. You cannot separate them from their church without essentially separating them from their entire belief system.

OH my gawd. So I saw a post on twitter about how people want things to open up and get their hairs done and nails did and be able to drink in bars because of the economy. We get that it's about economics. But they likened it to people leaving poorer countries to break the law to cross our border to get jobs in menial work to help support...economies. And not just the US but sending money home to family in other countries but that's not okay with the current administration. Close those borders. No one should get in to help support farmers and plants with slaughter and processing because all these other US citizens are lining up for those jobs and the right to be an earner. I think this is what bothers me the mostest. It's a carefully applied double standard and it's wrong. And dumb.

In every other instance that's called a cult. TOTALLY WEIRD how it's not for them. I can't possibly understand why!
It IS a cult. But from the outside it looks almost exactly like the religion that they profess to follow. The only times you'd notice a difference is if you're actually on the inside or when something highly disastrous (like a pandemic) forces them to show their true allegiances.
I have a whole rant about this, but I'll save it for now as it delves into deconstructing faith and stripping away literally thousands of years of bad theology, patriarchy, legalism, and shame.
