Reacting to Charlie Kirk criticizing those who want to keep churches closed while allowing protests, CNN’s Chris Cuomo made the claim that not allowing protests by some form of “martial law” would lead to “chaos.”
Cuomo said “I feel badly for him that he believes that that’s the world he lives in, that he’s being kept from going to church. Why? Because of a pandemic. I want to go to church. I miss going to church. I understand there’s a pandemic. You know who else does? My priest understands it.”
He continued “Oh, but you can protest. One has nothing to do with the other. You are dealing with people who are responding in this country to outrageous acts of social injustice. To say, well, it’s the same as going to church, no, it isn’t.”
“If you told people they couldn’t protest, if you invoked martial law about these types of situations, you would have chaos.” Cuomo added.
