    Re: the Canadian pastor

    In truth we Canucks do have trouble with some pastors, and some who attended those services were not even church goers but attended services out of defiance of orders to the contrary – and were infected with Covid. On the other hand our Roman Catholic bishops mandate what the church can do — aka obey the law. If the law says no services, the bishop says no services and there are no Masses for parishioners (the priest can still say them). At this moment where I am in BC the priest is allowing 100 people who MUST be masked and the 101st person etc gain no entry. There is also a dispensation for those of us who wish to ride out the Covid storm.

    Stupidity in the form of defiance is universal.
