    Only if social distancing is followed and the location of the funeral can support this. Else the funeral should be the size the location can support.

    Bunch of idiots. (Those meeting). They probably are into the conspiracy theories. It's fine to break the law to meet when the ban on is on the church meeting as an attempt by the government to control believers, but simply as a matter of societal protection - I'm not convinced that meets the requirements of "appealing to a higher law".

    All the churches in my area have online services and abide by the rules.

    No. Church tax. Which I don't pay because I'm not a Catholic nor Calvinist. Although they do take collections for third parties. You can donate by paypal or direct bank payment.
