As Easter weekend approaches, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) released a lengthy guide with practices people should follow while worshiping God at church.
At the beginning of March, Gov. Tate Reeves lifted all state-imposed mask mandates, but the state’s health department isn’t done issuing guidance for the public.
While they can’t officially force churchgoers to follow their rules, the MSDH releasing a public statement like this shows how the government still wants to control public life, even after mask mandates are lifted by governors.
One of the more absurd points in the list is that the MSDH calls singing a “high-risk activity that can quickly spread viral particles.”
I guess singing ‘Amazing Grace’ is dangerous now?
Also, the list talks about taking communion. It says “alternatives to shared cups for communion should be pursued.”
What’s most frustrating is that the government doesn’t trust individuals or churches to make their own decisions. Instead, many state health departments want to be involved in every aspect of your life.
