A church-sponsored Covid party?

Apparently, there’s a church in Florida that sponsored a Covid party — a get-together for the specific purpose of exposing attendees to Covid-19.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated the teen’s last two week in the medical examiner’s report, which Jones said shows her mother, Carole Brunton Davis, had taken her June 10 to a church-sponsored event to intentionally expose her immunocompromised daughter, who had survived cancer at 2, to the potentially deadly coronavirus.

Does the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of religion protect the mother? I don’t know — but I’m hoping some enterprising prosecutor turns the next few years of her life into hell and figures-out a way to close that church.

The pandemic has taught me two things:

  1. There are a lot more idiots in America than I thought. W-a-a-a-y more.

  2. Nietzsche was right: you can’t protect fools from natural selection, and there’s no good reason to try.

    I do wish I could think of a way to prevent them from harming innocent bystanders, however.
