…of the intelligence and responsibility of American citizens, including particularly Kentucky citizens.
Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (D) has said he’s going to identify, track, and isolate Kentucky citizens who dare go to their church’s Easter services. His excuse—and that’s all it is, a cynical rationalization—for his government’s surveillance of a broad swath of citizens is the present Wuhan Virus situation.
It’s for the greater good, you see.
I hear people say, “It’s my choice”. Well, it’s not the person next to you’s choice….
That’s plainly not true. It was the person next to you’s clear choice to be there, also, knowing full well the nature and the proximity of the company both of those individuals, and it was the clear choice of all of the rest of the congregation.
Neither is there anything in either the Free Exercise Clause or the Establishment Clause that says “except for when a State governor thinks better.” This is simply a confluence of two Progressive-Democrat ideologies: American citizens are too grindingly stupid to make their own decisions or to act intelligently (here, to govern their own post-service behavior), and religious freedom is just a phrase that’s gone out of vogue because, after all, the Constitution isn’t binding on anything.
Senator Rand Paul (R, KY) is on the right track:
Taking license plates at church? Quarantining someone for being Christian on Easter Sunday? Someone needs to take a step back here[.]
The Progressive-Democrat Beshear has no faith in the citizens of Kentucky or their ability to act intelligently, he wants Government to identify and surveil them and then control them, and he has no respect for Law.
Kentuckians might want to remember this at the next election for Governor, in three more years.
