AMC, Regal and Cinemark sue New Jersey for opening churches, but not cinemas

So if churches are getting payroll relief stimulus just like any other business, they should be subject to the same other times as any other business, right?

That’s the logic applied to this suit. Churches aren’t “special.” They are like concert halls and cinemas, businesses. Close one you have to close them all.

I’m not sure theaters in most places shouldn’t stay closed. But with all these pulpit-packed pandemic hot spots traced to the faithful, maybe this suit will shake a little common sense into political panderers letting religious cranks set policy.
