The governor is obliged to be constitutional, and that means to avoid giving preference for one religion over another (or for religion over not religion). Since that protects Christians as well, let's respect that requirement.

Swkh310 it does matter what God you pray too. Read II Kings 18:17-39 and see what happens when false gods come up against the true God.

To Skeptic and all skeptics: COVID-19 is not due to the judgment of God, but rather the wickedness of those who weaponized it in a laboratory and commissioned it to be released in order to bring about global governance thru martial law, mandated vaccines, surveillance, censorship, and cashless economy. Mankind has always been responsible for inhumanity to man; and most of the birth pangs ("signs of the times") listed by Jesus in Matthew 24 can be attributed to the heart of man, which is "deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked..." (Jeremiah 17:9). These birth pangs of the New World Disorder include spiritual deception; wars and rumors of wars, famine, and pestilence. These world-shaping events are not God's fault or doing, but rather the consequences of a planet plagued by death and disease (which came about as a result of disobedience to God) as well as sinful human beings struggling for power and control over the population. (Psalm 2, Revelation 17:12-14) God's judgment of the earth and those who rebel against him (in terms of plague and pestilence) is yet future, reserved for the Tribulation (a.k.a. the great and terrible day of the Lord—Joel 2:31). The good news is that "God is . . . longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9). So, as long as there is still air in the lungs of those in need of salvation who desire eternal life with God, there is opportunity to repent and call upon the name of the Lord (Romans 10:13). All who put their faith in Jesus Christ shall be saved; "but he (or she) who does not believe is condemned already, because he (or she) has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God" (John 3:18).

Please consider this...their are many belief systems about god or god,s or no god. But the simple fact is that they all can not all be true. Now they could all be wrong but then you have to deal with who Jesus said He is and His statements about Himself make all the other belief systems false. Jesus said that He is the Son of God (not a god or god`s). Which means praying to any god other than the one true God is symply idol worship and will not be heard because that god or god's do not exist. So it does matter which God we pray to who is the great I AM and He answers our prayers according to His perfect will through Jesus Christ His son. Humble yourself before Him and repent and believe and turn from your wicked ways and He will heal our nation!

So your true God "sends" us the virus and afterwards he decides whether to help us or not, depending on how many Christians pray to him, neglecting of course the prayers to the "wrong" gods...? It is not up to any elected official to determine which faith is true. Thank god for our constitution ;-)

Here it is straight from a trusted grammar source: https://www.lawprose.org/garners-usage-tip-of-the-day-superstitions-1/ I like the quotation at the end—that ending a sentence with a preposition is about as dangerous as stepping on a crack in a sidewalk. ;)

"I beg forgiveness of grammatically sensitive readers who will be distracted by the sentence-ending preposition. Please overlook this fault." LOL. Ending a sentence with a preposition is not "wrong." Some would say that doing so is just a little less formal, and some would not even say that. The most important thing is to sound *natural*, and that often means ending a sentence in that way. :)

Got some bad news for you, Dr. Brown. A virus doesn't "think." It doesn't stop to ask it you are a Lutheran, a Jew, a Muslim, or even a Democrat. The governor's comments were spot on. Yours, as a Christian, are a disgrace.
