    (Some) city Mayors stated publicly that church services were gatherings of people where the virus could spread to other church members. So, services were either banned or they were strongly encouraged not to be held, especially during the first 3 months of the virus outbreak.

    The purpose was they can't stand God because they don't like anyone who has more power than them.

    And yes, it violates the 1st Amendment.

    its to instill a feeling of lack of freedom in the religious.

    plus its big daddy oil baron exercising his muscles on the percieved passive weak religious population.

    its also those "ex-$laves" trying to instill "obiedence" so they can live for "free" off the backs of the US taxpayer thru "reperations" because its the united states not the confederate states that freed them and forced them to live without "massa" guiding hand!

    They've had to work!

    It’s funny how many try to interpret freedom of religion as meaning churches should get special privileges and be exempt from the rule of law.    That’s not at all what was behind religious freedom.   The idea behind freedom of religion is people not be persecuted for their religious beliefs.  Expecting churches to obey the same laws the rest of us must follow is not persecution.

    The purpose of forbidding large gatherings, including large church gatherings was to reduce virus spread.

    With 167,000 Americans dead or 15000 thousand people who die every day this question benefits who? Not the church goers, not the congregation or the area they came from. As usual it benefits (1) the leadership.

    No.

    of course the purpose was to slow down the spread and in my opinion it does not violate freedom of religion.
