Church’s challenge a topic for spirited conversati­on


Re Toronto church challenges gathering limits, Dec. 9

If Doug Ford and company want to be taken seriously when they impose lockdowns they need to use some common sense. A 31,000square-foot church like Toronto Internatio­nal Celebratio­n Church is 54 per cent the size of an NFL football field which is 57,600 square feet. Imposing a 10-person maximum on the church is the sort of idiocy that diminishes the credibilit­y of the government which in turn leads to cynicism and disobedien­ce of the lockdown.

Lockdown measure violates right to freedom of religion? “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” — Matthew 18:20. I guess the Internatio­nal Celebratio­n Church in North York can’t count.
