Default Churches open, Movie Theaters closed

I'm angry at the Supreme Court ruling that Churches should be treated like grocery stores because to not do so is "singling out religious groups" The entire argument is predicated on ignoring the fact they were under the same restrictions as movie theaters.

You arrive at the same scheduled time, you all congregate in close proximity for hours watching what's in front of you. You leave at the same scheduled time. Anyone want to guess what you don't do at a grocery store?

They argued apples and oranges with the Supreme Court falling over themselves to say that equal treatment is discrimination. What's next if they murder someone in the name of their faith we can't prosecute them? I know that's a ridiculous point but I'm angry. It's spitting on the First Amendment.

The key is they argued they were being discriminated against by comparing themselves to business that have a completely different operational situation.

The closest thing to Churches and how they operate is quite simply theaters. Which were the rules they have to follow.

This isn't letting your kid die because it's against your beliefs to let them have the life saving medication or medical procedure.

This is deciding it's okay to KILL other people because you want to attend church in person rather than turn on any of the numerous church programs that fill the airwaves on a Sunday.

Someone's going to try and say "well don't go to church" I'm not but they will come into my store. I've already had people who were supposed to be quarantining due to possible exposure in my store.

I'm pissed. This is BS. Can anyone give me a good reason this isn't a bunch of BS?
