After almost 10 months in isolation, there are more and more stories appearing about people opting to come together, especially for faith-based events.
Personally, I think it’s about time. Millions of people died to give Americans religious freedom and the ability to assemble. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say those freedoms can be obliterated, especially for an illness with a documented recovery rate of 99.6%.
If it is okay to gather for political and social protests, then surely singing Christmas songs should be acceptable as well.
That’s why I was proud of Hollywood actor Kirk Cameron’s decision to host a second Christmas caroling protest against California rules that restrict religious gatherings.
Cameron’s statement very effectively sums up the feelings of many people of faith:
“All I can tell you is that I’m looking around in my community and I’m seeing the devastation and the suffering of people whose businesses have been bankrupted, people dealing with anxiety, depression, suicide is spiking, the abused being quarantined with their abusers, and I can’t just ignore that,” Cameron said.
“Thousands of people in our community…would rather not suffer in isolation [but] come out to sing and express their gratitude because we believe that there is immunity in community, but there is desolation in isolation,” he added.
