Police issue notices to worshipers of Kentucky church on Easter service

On Easter Sunday, inside the Maryville Baptist Church, ~50 worshipers ignored Gov. Beshear’s order against mass gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic and attended services together. Owing to this, two Kentucky State troopers placed quarantine notices on such parishioners’ cars and noted down their license numbers. However most of them have said that they had no intention to follow the notices.

Grown adults can make their own risk assessment. If you want to suggest that they do a certain thing (or not do something) that is fine, but we are not children and we have a right to move freely. Anyone who see criminal or even civil penalties as a result of exercising their rights should absolutely sue any entities that restrict their rights.

Civil disobedience becomes duty when the most basic right to live and associate freely is considered to be against the law. We then need to consider those that make and enforce the laws to be the true threat.

Good. This is America dammit! Freedom comes with responsibility that goes for the citizens and the law enforcement. These people are making a foolish decision but they have every right to. The law enforcement are taking up draconian measures to police people. They don't have a right to do that.

I couldn't find any info on how big the church building is, but just having 50 people in association doesn't mean they were crowded. My tiny church can easily fit 25-30 even with social distancing guidelines. I'm hopeful that people will recognize the risks, take appropriate precautions, and attempt to keep as much normalcy as possible.

Don't be selfish, think of others and stay home if possible. You know it's bad when anarchists are telling people to stay home and obey the state.
