I can sort of wrap my head around evangelical's total disregard of science, but what I can't understand is their total disregard of other's safety and health.

In two weeks when coronavirus infections explodes in the Tampa area I'm sure Howard-Browne will claim "But my Freedom of Religion!"

I also think two misdemeanor charges for this maybe a little light, but that's just me.

From the article:

Sheriff Chad Chronister and State Attorney Andrew Warren on Monday announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for Pastor Howard-Browne. He faces misdemeanor charges of unlawful assembly and violation of public health emergency order.

The River at Tampa Bay Church held two services Sunday, Chronister said, and even offered bus transportation for those services. The chuch's livestream showed a packed crowd cheering and applauding.

"They have access to technology allowing them to livestream their services over the internet and broadcast to their 400 members from the safety of their own homes, but instead they chose to gather at church," Chronister said during a press conference.
