Silicon Valley's "Hidden Persecution" of the Catholic Church which it apparently Considers Lower in Priority than Dog Parks

The Catholic Monitor was informed of the Silicon Valley Santa Clara County's "hidden persecution" of  the Catholic Church this week.

The county is enforcing unconstitutional tyrannical guidelines for Catholic and all religious services which are apparently considered lower in priority than dog parks as can be seen below in its listing of activities:

Appendix C-2: Allowed Additional Activities - Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) - County of Santa Clara

(4) Use of Dog Parks

  1. Basis for Addition. Dog parks are outdoor locations that typically provide ample space for people to distance from one another.  Risks associated with this activity can be mitigated through measures that ensure adequate social distancing and limit intermixing between households. 
  2. Description and Conditions. Dog parks may open to the public subject to the following limitations in addition to those required elsewhere in the Order:
    1. No person shall enter a dog park if it is not possible to easily maintain at least six feet of separation from all other persons.
    2. Face coverings must be worn at all times, except by people who are exempted from the face covering requirement pursuant to the Health Officer’s Critical Guidance on Face Coverings.
(5) Small Outdoor Ceremonies and Religious Gatherings

  1. Basis for Addition. Although ceremonies and religious gatherings carry a substantial risk of transmission, they are vital to people’s social and spiritual well being.  The risk associated with these activities is mitigated when the activities occur outdoors, and when the total number of participants is limited.  Risks associated with these activities can be further mitigated through measures that decrease exposure, ensure adequate social distancing, and limit intermixing between households. 
  2. Description and Conditions. Outdoor ceremonies and religious gatherings, including but not limited to funerals and weddings, may occur subject to the following limitations in addition to those required elsewhere in the Order:
    1. Ceremonies and gatherings must occur entirely outdoors, except that participants may use restrooms, provided that the restrooms are frequently sanitized.
    2. No more than 25 persons may be present at any one time.
    3. A person or business, as that term is defined in the Order, must serve as the designated host for the ceremony or gathering, and must ensure compliance with all requirements in the Order and in this Appendix C-2.
    4. The host must maintain a list with the names and contact information of all participants. If a participant tests positive for COVID-19, the host shall assist the County Public Health Department in any case investigation and contact tracing associated with the gathering.
    5. Food, beverages, and other concessions may not be provided or sold for consumption at the ceremony or gathering, except as necessary for ceremonial purposes with maximization of all safety precautions and avoidance of sharing.
    6. No equipment or items may be shared amongst persons, except amongst members of the same household or living unit.
    7. No singing or shouting is allowed due to significantly increased risk of COVID-19 transmission.
    8. All participants must wear face coverings at all times, except people who are exempted from the face covering requirement pursuant to the Health Officer’s Critical Guidance on Face Coverings.
    9. Except for members of the same household or living unit, all participants must remain at least six feet from one another at all times. [https://www.sccgov.org/sites/covid19/Pages/health-order-appendix-c2-additional-activities.aspx

    Santa Clara County rule iv. is unconstitutional and tyrannical:

     "The host must maintain a list with the names and contact information of all participants. If a participant tests positive for COVID-19, the host [church] shall assist the County Public Health Department in any case investigation and contact tracing associated with the gathering."

    The Supreme Court judged such a rule unconstitutional:


    Freedom of Association

    NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF COLORED PEOPLE v. ALABAMA ex rel. PATTERSON, ATTORNEY GENERAL, 357 U.S. 449 (1958)

    Argued:
    January 15, 1958
    Decided:
    June 30, 1958
    Decided by:
    Warren Court, 1957
    Legal Principle at Issue:
    Did an Alabama law that required the NAACP to provide the names and addresses of all its members and agents in the state violate the First and Fourteenth Amendments?
    Action:
    The Court ruled that the NAACP could not be compelled to disclose the names and addresses of its members.

    Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b

Bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx "Exemption" Letter & Stated: "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary"

Today, the bishops of Colorado gave an apparent Vaxx " exemption" letter (21_8_Vaccine_Exemption_CCC_Fin...docx(20KB)) and stated that "Vaccination is Not Morally Obligatory and so Must Be Voluntary":  COLORADO CATHOLIC CONFERENCE 1535 Logan Street | Denver, CO 80203-1913 303-894-8808 | cocatholicconference.org   [Date]   To Whom It May Concern, [Name] is a baptized Catholic seeking a religious exemption from an immunization requirement. This letter explains how the Catholic Church’s teachings may lead individual Catholics, including [name], to decline certain vaccines. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may be required to refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience comes to this judgment. While the Catholic Church does not prohibit the use of most vaccines, and generally encourages them to safeguard personal and public health, the following authoritative Church teachings demonstrate the principled religious
