“Citing various Bible references, the clergy said, for Christians to wear any type of mask or face shield to church, is to reintroduce the veil which was torn the moment Jesus died on the cross. With the tearing of the veil, there is no longer separation between God and his people.

When a man is standing before God in church wearing a shield or mask, he is denying the finished work of the cross.” he said
