Celebrating Palm Sunday Via the Internet

Really? Is this really happening?  I'm sitting at home waiting for the Palm Sunday Service to be live-streamed from the Church I attend.  Every other year I attended in person, but not this year thanks to the Government!  I realize that this virus can be deadly to some people but seriously, people should use their common sense if they are not feeling well or have a cough, then you stay home of your own decision, not Big Government telling you to stay home.

I realize that some people are actually dumb as a rock and will still go out and about but still, they ought to know better and should take every precaution not to infect anyone else.  There is a small bunch that thinks that it is fun to go around infecting others, those people ought to be arrested and locked up in solitary confinement instead of everyone in the country being forced to stay at home.

Now our illustrious Socialist Governor here is Michigan wants to enforce her stay at home order. Using the power of Government to persecute masses of people by using the threat of arrest and detainment goes over the top.  To her, this is an experiment in forced socialism, a test to see if they can get away with forcing every Church to close while the State of Florida's Governor added Churches to the essential list which is what should have happened in the first place.

We can distance ourselves, wear masks, and use hand sanitizer all by ourselves, we are big people, we are not stupid, are we?  Obviously, Big Government thinks we are stupid and feels the need to order us to stay at home and orders all Churches to close. So here I am waiting at home to celebrate Palm Sunday via the internet, our sincere thanks to YouTube for being a good sport and allowing us to use their service.

 Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

In other words, we all went right along with Big Governments orders meant to keep us safe and healthy from this mystery virus but on the other hand, in doing so we gave up essential liberty in order to play it safe and in so doing we deserve neither liberty or safety.  

I want to end by wishing everyone a safe and blessed Palm Sunday and next, we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord from the dead and I hope we can do that life and in person at our local Churches not on the internet.
