Letter to the editor: Church-goers, please worship remotely

I sincerely hope the Victory Baptist parishioners — and those subsequently infected with COVID — will recover. And that the church (and any others tempted to do in-person services) will conduct only-online services until we achieve herd immunity through vaccinations. As we can see from this church’s reckless practices, in-person services endanger innocent Vermonters.
The church pastor is quoted as saying. “Corporate worship is part of the Christian faith. There is something lost in a Zoom service. We did it for three months.”
Religious freedom is a foundation of our nation. But it is not “faith” to engage in practices that spread a deadly disease.
