California says you CANT sing in church
Attack on Christianity, all religion–California bans singing in Church–mask or no mask
(INTELLIHUB) — In what can only be considered a communist-style state attack on our freedom as Americans, religion itself, and the God-given right to assemble, California has banned singing at all religious gatherings whether worshipers wear a mask or not.
The document claims to provide “guidance for places of worship and providers of religious services and cultural ceremonies (referred to collectively as “places of worship”) to support a safe, clean environment for workers, interns and trainees, volunteers, scholars, and all other types of workers as well as congregants, worshippers, visitors, etc. (referred to collectively as “visitors” or “congregants”).” However, a quick scan of the order reveals the true intention of those who seek to gain full control of the populace in the name of the invisible enemy a.k.a. COVID-19.
That’s right, “singing and chanting” are no longer allowed in California. Not to mention churches and other gatherings are being limited to 25% occupancy which means that virtually overnight religion in the State of California has been reduced by two-thirds. This is what the powers-that-be want and they are getting it.
“In particular, activities such as singing and chanting negate the risk- reduction achieved through six feet of physical distancing,” the document reads. “Places of worship must, therefore, discontinue singing and chanting activities and limit indoor attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, whichever is lower.”
“Local Health Officers are advised to consider appropriate limitations on outdoor attendance capacities, factoring their jurisdiction’s key COVID- 19 health indicators. At a minimum, outdoor attendance should be limited naturally through the implementation of strict physical distancing measures of a minimum of six feet between attendees from different households, in addition to other relevant protocols within this document.”
