Churches in WI did not have to be closed today

No photo description available.

Basically all places of worship in WI were not open to the public on this blessed Easter Sunday with exceptions being those that chose to live stream their services.A few days ago Gov. Tony Evers reiterated that church services and religious gatherings for Easter must still comply with his “safer at home” order. The order was issued March 25 and is in effect until April 24, unless, the office says, a superseding order is issued.

Under the governor’s order, churches and religious entities are considered essential. However, the same rules must apply with any gathering — only allowing at most 10 people at a time — if it occurs in a room or confined space.

I have no problem with using this site as a polling place. Good for those who turned out on Tuesday. But suddenly today, the building was off limits, a danger, a risk, possibly subject to a police raid.

No logic here. If it was appropriate for people to gather to cast their ballots Tuesday, then it should have been okay for churches to open their doors to the faithful today, the holiest day of the year.
