    Of course they arn't in relation to "disaster response" which this essentially is. It's the same like if you had say some flood or earthquake, afcourse things like police, fire department, hospitals etc are going to be deemed essential during any disaster that significantly disrupts daily life and work, but youre not going to consider youre church service absolutly nessecary during a flood or a erthquake either. And notably even religious doctrine tends to support that idea, faith starts with oneself and it's typically perfectly possible to remain fathfull withought having access to a church it's more important to consider the moral guidelines and adhere to the beliefs of the religion than to slavisly follow the lip service given to it even if certaintly the service of a church/temple would typicly be seen as added value to any flock of believers. Furthermore from a religious perspective there is actually very few added value in the building rather than the religious community itself, as such a remote church service aking to what teleevangelists do is technicly sufficient to provide such added value too. When we are all asked to consider how we can do our services more remotly and/or do our work from home, why should it be considered particulary hard for there to be church services by tv and online including priest consultation?

    If there is ever a time when people needed to churches this is one of them. Don't interfere with their religious rights and gatherings. Are big people they can make choices they will speak to their God and receive the answers. They do not need government to control their God

    American politics and organized religion. Both a bunch of BS and people still buy into it. People really do love drama and to be in full flight from reality. Both make for great entertainment.

    Trump urged churches to be open. What's the first thing he does after that announcement?

    nothing is the bill of rights says the government has the right to choose what rights you can have in the name of protecting you. There is no amendment that says the government is you daddy and must protect you from a virus

    Answer: No, you don't need churches to survive, but if your psyche is so fragile that you can't live without church, perhaps you should consider letting corona take you.

    Separation of church and state! If the state can shut the church the state is the church! I’m very saddened and disappointed that my church closed!

    Well, the Constitution of the United States says that they are in unequivocal terms(without even bothering with the term "essential"). So, that answers that. No one can make a valid argument otherwise. If they do try to argue it, they just prove that they are idiots.
