    Florida police arrest pastor Rodney Howard-Browne - CNN

    It is good to at least some action being taken against people who deliberately and openly violate the law and put people’s lives at risk. He is doing no good for his congregation that he pretends to serve, he is endangering them, and then all the people they then have contact with.

    If he continues this behaviour much stronger measures should be taken.

    It still has not occurred to many Americans that this isn't the Old West anymore, they are not isolated mountain men, and their actions can spell life or death for other people -- Hence, they need to suck it in and take some personal responsibility for their behavior.

    The lawyer should really watch the live streamed video before putting his foot further down his throat.

    Setting examples like that guy will probably influence some folks to disregard isolation and lock-down rules, thus spreading this sickness much further.

    I notice that extreme Christians are talking down this coronavirus as of little consequence, and one is actually telling that it is God's work and therefore good .......... is this an 'anti-science' thing, similar to that attached to global-warming denial and creationism?

    If your infection rate and fatality graphs soar above other western countries, then it might be down to irresponsible nutcases (criminals?) like the guy named in the OP.

    But I think the Chinese graph is a deception......

    So do I. I have several friends in Hong Kong and almost all of them are telling me the rumors coming out of China is that the situation is far and away worse than anything the Chinese Government is reporting. One person said, "If only ten percent of what I'm hearing is true, the Government is covering up an embarrassment the size of Tienanmen Square every week."

    Fools like this need to learn about the internet. Over the weekend I setup my mother's ipad and notebook so she could get services, be part of meetings and take part in her study groups online without security issues or hassle. She is 65 and not computer savvy. Over the week I am setting up a similar system for my grandfather and his ipad, he is 91, so he can video chat with family and friends. Rodney can do the same.

    Fools like this is why I do not put stock in religious professions. Having an expertise in religion (nonsense) becomes equated with intelligence.

    OK ...... Right........ well, at least the West is not focusing upon Chinese stats now.

    In an argument about face-masks (elsewhere) a writer has mentioned that since this virus can be transmitted in coughs and sneezes, that it could be drawn in to air ducts and transmit through air-conditioning systems. When others scorned this idea he mentioned the many instances of cruise ships carrying multiple cases on board. Now that really did catch my attention since no specialist has mentioned anything like that. What do you think?

    I'm no expert, old friend, but better safe than sorry, eh? For what it's worth, I just this evening read a report in WIRED that stated face masks work. I guess they can't hurt.
