Same as it ever was

I agree with much of what you say. I just think it would be irresponsible to put other people at risk by attending religious services too.I want to make one point about the supposed "importance" of attending an ASL tournament in these times. Several posters here have suggested that "it's just a GAME" etc etc, and therefore not "worth it".
When I attend an ASL tournament, I
I do not see any difference between this activity and attending a religious service in person.
- feel part of a community of people, with whom I share a passion and interest
- challenge myself mentally and spiritually
- break away from the day to day normalcy of life
- take part in an activity I consider valuable and interesting.
So if church services are able to operate under these conditions, why would an ASL tournament not be treated the same way? Why in a secular state would someone determine that my spiritual life is less valuable than that of others?
