The Godly Dragon Show: California Bans Singing in Places of Worship

Hi everybody. Happy 4th of July. I'd hate to be the bearer of bad news on a special occasion like this, but I feel this is so urgent that I really need to make a video about this today. I found out from a Christian news source that the state of California is banning singing in places of worship, and the source took me to this KTLA article, which I will read right now.

While you can still attend in-person church services in California, you can’t sing.
The state, to curb a rapidly worsening pandemic, has temporarily banned singing and chanting in places of worship.
“Practices and performances present an increased likelihood for transmission of COVID-19 through contaminated exhaled droplets and should occur through alternative methods like internet streaming,” the state’s Department of Public Health announced in an order Wednesday.
The health department had previously only asked places of worship to “strongly consider” halting singing, but an updated guidance document issued Wednesday says they must discontinue all singing and chanting activities, in addition to limiting capacity to 25% or a maximum of 100 guests.
California has had more than 24,000 coronavirus cases. On Tuesday, it announced 6,367 cases, the second highest total for the state since the pandemic began. This has prompted Gov. Gavin Newsom to tighten restrictions.
COVID-19 patients make up for about 30% of all hospitalizations, according to state data.
Singing at services has proven to be one way to spread a virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The act of singing, itself, might have contributed to transmission through emission of aerosols, which is affected by loudness of vocalization.”

Other changes

While the California Department of Public Health strongly recommends places of worship should continue to facilitate remote serves, in-person services are currently permitted in California if proper measures are followed.
Among the existing protocols, all houses of worship are required limit their attendance to 25% of building capacity or a maximum of 100 attendees, the order says.
“Places of worship must take reasonable measures to remind congregants and visitors that they must use face coverings and practice physical distancing and should frequently wash their hands with soap for at least 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer, and not touch their face,” the order says.
Offering plates and similar items that move between people at places of worship have also been temporarily discontinued.
This doesn't really make sense, because what about just talking? That also expels droplets. Are they going to tell us we can't even preach anymore pretty soon? This is very bad, and here's why. 
Here in America, we are supposed to have separation of church and state, and what that means is that the government is supposed to stay out of church business. That's not what's happening anymore. Now the government is trying to tell all the Christians how they can do church, and they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to do that. You might think, well we're in a pandemic, so this is understandable, but just you wait. As we get closer to the end times, there will come a day where Christians could be arrested just for practicing their faith, and during the time of evil, Christians who don't take the mark of the beast will get rounded up. Mark my words, this is only the beginning. I don't want to scare anyone, but I don't want anyone to be left in the dark about what's going on. Prepare yourselves. This may just be in California for now, but it could spread across the country too. That's a very real possibility. 
Thanks for tuning in to this episode of the Godly Dragon show. I hope that this video was informative to you. God bless.
