'Snitch Police': Virginia Asks Citizens to Report Churches Not Following COVID orders
A new Virginia Department of Health webpage that allows citizens to report churches and businesses in violation of the governor’s coronavirus orders has sparked pushback from lawmakers, who say it’s a form of “police snitch” government overreach that could be abused.

The portal on the Department of Health website allows citizens to file a complaint if they “have observed violations of Executive [Order] 63 or Executive Order 65.”

It asks the public to list the establishment’s name and address, along with the date of the alleged violation. A toggle allows the complainant to list the type of establishment, such as “religious service,” “restaurant,” “grocery/convenience store” or “indoor gun range.” ...

Is it illegal or unscrupulous to ask citizens to carry out this instruction by way of governors orders??

Is this a means of dividing the community for unscrupulous ends?

Will this establish a precedent in the minds of the people and the bureaucrats?

Psalm 94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?"

Prov 16:28 A froward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends."

You are very correct. I was stationed in Berlin during the DDR days. And, I have visited other communist countries to include East Germany. They all spied on each other and reported violators to the authorities. They were given financial incentive. In some communist countries a church had to have their weekly sermons approved by the authorities. The real churches didn't comply.

I remember the main roads through those countries looked okay, but turn off and all you saw was poverty. People always were looking for food, etc. The communist/socialist societies were a failure. They actually had stores that only tourists or communist party members could shop in.

You made excellent points.

Didn’t read the article, but it sounds like the early stages of what will happen below.

Luke 21:16 “And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.”

Tragically, it seems that in the USA, where demonstrators can loot, riot, and even seize areas of cities at will, and create no go zones, where police, if they are not dissolved and defunded that is, are not allowed to go, and where by the way, these folks are not observing “social” distancing, or any Covid 19 emergency order, and egged on by the local leftist Marxist politicians, yet churches, and synagogues, (though mosques are strangely exempt), and small local businesses, if they have survived being shut down in the lockdown, or being burnt down or looted by the rioters, are now to be spied on.

It seems that Marxism is showing its true colours, and certain states in the USA have become echoes of the old USSR, Cuba, Venezuela, Albania of old, and of course the current successful model of Communist China, or even North Korea.

From "know all" Wikipedia: Virginia is a feminine given name derived from the Ancient Roman family name Virginius,..
According to Wikipedia, Virginia was originally named after Wingina, possibly a local ruler's name. The Elizabeth I, being modest as she was, changed its name to suggest her title "Virgin Queen."

It was Elizabeth who was responsible for the compromised, "Something for Everybody" Church of England which so annoyed many Puritans and Separatists. Ever since, it has been a political animal subject to the whims of kings and Parliaments.

Virginia has been corrupted. She is now a harlot who is persecuting the saints.

""citizens to report churches and businesses in violation of the governor’s coronavirus orders""

Isn't this communist style governing?

Wonder if she will send her KGB round to sort the problem?

Obviously not the real Jim Linkin, Mike. As you pointed out, there are no links to inane, inept, and inappropriate articles. Besides, JL 2.0 can spell, something J.L. 1.0 could never do. I say we deport both of them to Venezuela.

There are over the top restrictions and too weak restrictions. I’d say that this looks okay.
Of course you thinks it looks ok. Churches should stay out of politics, but politics should control churches. Got it. That is, if you are actually Jim/Lincoln. The lack of a link is suspect.

Does the executive order make provision for gatherings to tear down statues? Essential service, you know. The worthless and useless governor of the Old Dominion should be recalled.
