Depends on which IFB or Catholic church you're talk about.

There's no such as thing as a tattoo artist who can tattoo remotely. That's the point he was making. And he's talking about church services/assemblies, not what church people do outside of church (perverted things).

A some things in the bible are somewhat subjective but God chose to emphasize the importance of church attendence.

Hebrews 10:25 - Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some [is]; but exhorting [one another]: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Our founding fathers also chose to emphasize and protect church assembly in our Constitution.

Many state constitutions also specifically protect the right to assemble.

True, but "forsake" doesn't mean "never miss" -- it means to give up something with the intent of never returning". A brother in our church has had his work schedule changed to Sun night - Thu nights (from the normal Mon-Fri 8-5 kind of work), so he is missing Sun night and Wed night... but his desire is to get this over with so that he can be back in all the services again. He is missing, but not forsaking.

I'm fine with the elderly and at-risk people deciding for themselves if they want to attend church in person or not. That's freedom.
