California pastors vow to defy Gov. Newsom and reopen: 'Churches are part of the answer not the prob

A network of 3,000 California churches, representing 2.5 million members, plans to defy Gov. Gavin Newsom by resuming in-person services, as pastors insist they've been left out of the process.

California Church United pastors announced Thursday in front of a Fontana megachurch that they plan to open May 31, instead of waiting until stage 3, when gyms, movie theaters, and other venues open, the San Bernardino County Sun reports.

May 31 was chosen because it is Pentecost, marking the birth of the Christian Church when the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles and followers of Jesus, according to Christian tradition, fitting for a "rebirth" of services.

“Our churches are part of the answer, not part of the problem,” said Danny Carroll, senior pastor at Water of Life Community Church. “We're an essential part of this whole journey and we've been bypassed ... kicked to the curb and deemed nonessential."

Sure just pray the virus away.

1. Let me see if I got this straight . . .

These snake charmers are peeved because they've been "left out of the process."

Hey, if you people want to be included in the political side of things, then waive your tax exempt status. Otherwise, STFU.

5. May 31st. Pentacost. When the Holy Spirit descended on believers.

Well, I suspect another invisible being will descend and tan their sorry asses.

9. Churches *ARE* the problem.

Literally - they are spreading this virus by not keeping to the lockdowns. The longer they keep this going the worse it's going to get.
