“A now-deleted video from the church’s Facebook page showed hundreds of worshipers singing, dancing, and jumping around during a service on May 24, when faith communities were not allowed to convene in large groups under Gov. Kate Brown’s reopening guidelines.”
We’re not surprised. We know that bible thumpers are not the sharpest knives in the drawer. Their stupidity is built into the Pentecostal liturgy. They consider themselves elite and superior. They see the world as insular to their own group and reject outside information. Pentecostalism often sets the spiritual over and against the intellectual and devalues academic study and argument. You can delve deeper if you want but there is no defending their outrageous attitude.
Stupid morons. They collectively stuck their hands in the fire, voluntarily, and now they are burned.
Should we feel bad? It’s sad that we don’t, but when all the arrows say one way street and they choose to go the other way . . .June 16, 2020 at 7:14 pm #46851lastdayParticipant
But… It has to all be part of God’s plan, right? He or she or they must have had a plan in mind for those worshipers. Otherwise nothing makes sense.June 16, 2020 at 7:19 pm #46852
I am certain that most, if not all worshippers were aware this was dangerous but their belief in their religion would overcome any bad outcomes. Too bad, because the virus doesn’t know any religion.June 16, 2020 at 7:22 pm #46853VitalogyParticipant
I’d love to see the virus take out religion. Keep on meeting and meet often!June 16, 2020 at 7:39 pm #46854
This is near LaGrande. Enough said.June 16, 2020 at 8:20 pm #46855ChicoParticipant
So what you are saying, Paul, is that this is all a “part of God’s LaGrande plan”?June 16, 2020 at 8:36 pm #46856

How many non-believers will they take with them? That’s the problem.June 18, 2020 at 8:36 pm #46890lastdayParticipant
Union County, the rural northeastern Oregon county home to the state’s largest coronavirus outbreak, voluntarily returned to Phase 1 of Gov. Kate Brown’s coronavirus reopening plan Wednesday.
The county is the first in Oregon to step backward under the governor’s gradual reopening guidelines. The move came after the county recorded a giant spike in coronavirus cases, from 22 on Sunday to 242 as of Wednesday.
Union County had entered Phase 2 of Brown’s reopening plan June 5. Under stricter Phase 1 regulations, gatherings are limited to 25 people or fewer, and churches are not allowed to meet in large groups.
State public health officials have linked the county’s outbreak to Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Island City, next to La Grande.
