Commentary: If there was a point to last week’s County Commission meeting, it has escaped me.
The commission violated the state’s social distancing guidelines in order to pass a resolution in support of the state’s social distancing guidelines.
Sort of. It’s complicated. Or, as Commission Chairman Lynn Ellens put it, “whether or not we pass this is relatively irrelevant.”
The meeting started with a political argument during the invocation, which was given by Pastor Doug Cowan of the Cornerstone Baptist Church.
“Lord, there are some that are suffering, in many cases almost needlessly, because in some cases they can’t get some medical treatments because of things being shut down across the country,” Cowan argued in a debate disguised as a prayer.
People need hope and encouragement, Cowan insisted.
