I don't think a gov's mandate is a law.

Thank you Father Nolan for speaking out against this pandemic.
Those of us who have eyes to see know that Covid was perpetrated to usher in worldwide Marxism.
Priests back in my day once spoke like you Father because they and their Bishops were true Shepherds of Jesus Christ. You were willing to risk everything for the sake of your flock. This does not go unnoticed.
The world is looking for courageous priests like you, Father. We will support you with or without a Bishop.
Catholics need their churches reopened with no stipulations attached. We need to receive the sacraments openly and freely as God intended.
Rest assured to those who are at high risk, Our Lord will provide.
God bless you Father Nolan!

So, what happens if a medical doctor, nurse or surgeon follows Fr. Nolan' s advise? If you are in hospital and getting an operation, do you want the surgical team to mask, or do they have to follow the hospital ordinances? Are the medical practitioners who mask in health facilities fearful fools? Are they automatons under the control of Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation Globalist? …More

Seriously folks, let us not loose a grip on reality during the present time.

St. Thomas Aquinas and Blsd. Duns Scotus pray for us!

It's just an analogy, and in no way distorts his point that masks are not necessary.

I'll grant that he's referring to everywhere outside of a hospital, including churches and public spaces but if you are in an enclosed space, (I agree with him on open outdoor spaces), for example a college campus and there happens to be, perchance individuals who have the Wuhan virus, then you significantly …More

I'll grant that he's referring to everywhere outside of a hospital, including churches and public spaces but if you are in an enclosed space, (I agree with him on open outdoor spaces), for example a college campus and there happens to be, perchance individuals who have the Wuhan virus, then you significantly lower the risk of contracting it if you and the infected person are wearing a mask. There are no guarantees that I will not be in a auto accident, but wearing a seatbelt significantly lowers your risk of a fatal injury.

How is this precaution being senseless or useless.

"Obviously all laws are good and must be obeyed" @Derpy45

Your opinion of a law's goodness does not give you the legal right to break it. SMH indeed. Wal-Mart shoppers might hate the laws requiring them to pay for things they want, but that doesn't give them the right to shoplift.

Putting "emergency" in "scare quotes" doesn't invalidate the laws granting the governor such powers. Derpy45 …More

Putting "emergency" in "scare quotes" doesn't invalidate the laws granting the governor such powers. Derpy45 got his legal education watching The People's Court during the good old days of Judge Wapner.

"including "emergency" orders based on zero scientific evidence."

Disaster emergencies can be declared for entirely NON "scientific" causes. Riots, for example. Simply put, emergency orders don't need "scientific evidence", you moron.

In Colorado, where Fr. Nolan is located at the moment, the Governor has wide latitude for declaring an emergency and the powers granted to him once he does so.

In theory, there -is- legislative oversight.

A pity Wal-Mart doesn't have anything even approaching a legal section in the book aisle. That's assuming Derpy would ever bother tearing himself away from Sports Illustrated and Transworld Motocross. :P

Nolan added that they have "zero authority".Has Fr. Nolan has passed the bar in his state? If so, which legal precednts he's citing for disobeying an emergency order issued by the state governor?
