President Trump announces new guidelines for the American people and Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib walks back her expletive-laced attack on prayer.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live we discussed President Trump announcing new guidelines on the Coronavirus.
You can view the full guidelines at this link, but here is a sample of what we read on the air:
15 Days to Slow the spread.
Listen and follow the directions of your state and local authorities.
If you feel sick, stay home. Do not go to work. Contact your medical provider.
If your children are sick, keep them at home. Do not send them to school. Contact your medical provider.
Again, you can view the full guidelines at this link. It is important to read them in order to understand how to best behave during this situation.
My dad, Jay Sekulow, made the following point:
Let me just say this, we are getting a lot of questions on the church restrictions. Those are constitutional. In other words the court would uphold the restriction. So what I’m seeing a lot of churches do is utilize social media, and other platforms to get the message out. I think, again, if we want to flatten the curve, all systems and all approaches should be utilized. But I don’t want you to think there’s a great constitutional case if, for instance, your church of fifteen hundred was told we prefer you not to meet and rather you do it in different ways, that that’s somehow a great constitutional case to challenge. We don’t believe it is.
At yesterday’s announcement, Dr. Antony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said the following:
What we’re mentioning now, the guidelines, when you look at them carefully, I believe if the people in the United States take them seriously because they were based on some rather serious consideration back and forth. Some may look at them and say they’re going to be really inconvenient for people, some will look and say well maybe we’ve gone a little too far. They were well thought out.
And the thing that I want to reemphasize and I’ll say it over and over again; when you’re dealing with an emerging infectious diseases outbreak, you are always behind where you think you are if you think that today reflects where you really are. That is not word-speak. Therefore, it will always seem that the best way to address it would to be doing something that looks like it might be an overreaction. It isn’t an overreaction.
We at the ACLJ are doing our best to keep you informed about the latest developments with the COVID-19 situation. Please join us in prayer for our country and the safety of our citizens. God will get our country through this if we rely on Him.
We also discussed how Rep. Tlaib is now walking back her comments attacking prayer. She re-tweeted an obscene reference to the National Day of Prayer using an expletive to identify this special day of prayer. Yesterday we activated you, and you responded. Today, she’s walking back her comments addressing her “attack on prayer” – using the same language we did yesterday. That’s no coincidence. She’s walking it back because you spoke out.
You can listen to the entire episode with more discussion about what the Administration is doing to combat this crisis here.
