It's the opposite here.  Public gatherings in parks, concert venues and restaurants are banned but religious folks get favoritism to spread the disease because of their religious freedom and that our governor didn't want to "act in due haste".  

This makes no sense.

What Kentucky is doing makes more sense.  Either you have social distancing in nonessential places or you don't.  

That is why I am so grateful that Andy Beshear is my governor.

Btw-we are talking about a small number of churches, whose congregants and leaders are so selfish, they are deplorable.

The majority, abide by the rules and SUPPORT the rules.

During his briefing on Friday, the governor played a video montage of rabbis, priests, imams, etc., supporting rules that are aimed at public safety.

I'm missing why you think Rand Paul agrees.  The tweet of his I saw clearly indicates he does not.

Why isnt a church allowed the opportinity to operate with mitigation measures in place while other entities are?  

I wonder if airplane travelers arriving in KY from NY are required to quarantine?  That seems like a much bigger threat.

Not to mention the issue of civil liberties and freedoms.  Does KY law enforcement go wherever they see groups of cars, take down plate numbers,  and then go quarantine the owners of those vehicles?

Whether purposeful or not, it looks like he is picking on religious folks.

Here is a direct quote from Beshear on the license plate information at mass gatherings:

"This is the only way that we can ensure that your decision doesn't kill somebody else," Beshear said. "What we are asking you to do is not to harm other people. It's to love your neighbor as yourself."

He can say this because he is religious.

And all these folks have to do, is STAY HOME, to be considered a hero.

But folks like McConnell and Paul, are making this a political issue.

It should be a common sense issue.

And the general public needs to be protected from those lacking common sense.

These so-called Christians, will go out to the pharmacy and grocery store. If they get sick, they go to the hospital.

How many people could they endanger, by their steadfast refusal to engage in common sense?

If it was directed only to churches, perhaps.  However, that doesn't seem to be the situation. 

Quote

[...]

The move does not include drive-in church services, and the enforcement is not exclusive to churches. The governor said the state will do the same for any mass gathering it is aware of.

Kentucky governor: Anyone at Easter mass gatherings required to quarantine for 14 days

And I'm sure law enforcement has been deployed to follow up on these travelers to Kentucky.

Why would anybody be traveling to Kentucky?

The governor has closed down race tracks, so no spring meet at Keeneland.

The horse farms aren't giving live tours.

The restaurants are closed to sit-down dining, so no fancy dinners prepared by award-winning chefs.

The bourbon distilleries are closed, so no Bourbon Trail tours.

The state parks are closed, so no rock climbing at Red River Gorge or events at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Shopping malls are closed.

There is nothing to do here.

That's what happens when you have a governor who understands the serious nature of a pandemic.

I'll take that as a no, the governor has not directed law enforcement to follow up on travelers to Kentucky to see if they are following his order to quarantine.

Based on what?

You have taken my comments and constructed your own meaning.

It seems to be a pattern.

YAWN and STRETCH.

I read in the Villages yesterday of people planning to drive out of Florida now to their summer homes...

Hopefully, none of them come to KY.

If they do, they will discover there is nothing to do.

Gas is $1.35 a gallon, but there is nowhere to drive to, so who cares?

My sole source of human face-toface contact is work.

Since we have to make appointments to see our horses, I don't see anybody at the barn.

Oops. I did see the veterinarian on Friday, when she came out to float Talli's teeth. But only to direct her to his stall. Then I waited in my car, while she worked.

Normally, I would stay with him through the process.

I read the Trump's real estate friend, who died from coronavirus, travelled from NY, to NJ, on the advice of Trump.

He was later rushed to NY hospital.

People need to STAY home!

You have an odd  burden of proof.

Trump bites the heads off baby bunnies for enjoyment, unless you can show me proof that he doesn't do that then clearly it's true.

You must not have followed the conversation.  I asked the question, and that person answered by telling me all the reasons why no one would be traveling to KY.

So, following that poster's logic, no one is traveling to KY.  Therefore, no reason law enforcement would be tracking travelers to Kentucky.  Correct?

Do you think travelers to Kentucky are being tracked down to be put on quarantine orders in the same manner Easter church goers are?  I'm going to go out on a limb and say you dont believe that either.  Let us know if I'm wrong.

Local and regional health and public safety officials certainly should be checking in with people who are supposed to be quarantined.
