Evangelicals have been in the forefront of the anti-sheltering protests…they have even tried to hold services against the law from local rules….
Sadly there is a downside to these idiots that are helping the virus spread among the faithful…..
Countless non-fundamentalist churches in the United States, from Catholic to Lutheran and Episcopalian, have embraced social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic and temporarily moved their activities online. But many Christian fundamentalists and evangelicals have been irresponsibly downplaying the dangers of COVID-19 and doing so with deadly results: journalist Alex Woodward, in the U.K.-based Independent, reports that the pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 30 pastors in the Bible Belt.
“Dozens of pastors across the Bible Belt have succumbed to coronavirus after churches and televangelists played down the pandemic and actively encouraged churchgoers to flout self-distancing guidelines,” Woodward reports. “As many as 30 church leaders from the nation’s largest African-American Pentecostal denomination have now been confirmed to have died in the outbreak, as members defied public health warnings to avoid large gatherings to prevent transmitting the virus.”
I am a cynic….and there is so much I could say about this turn of events….but I choose to not rub in the idiocy it took to bring this upon the faithful.
Then there is that idiot that makes My Pillow…..a born again crackhead that got his inspirational book out just in time for the pandemic….when people are looking for something to help them in this time of need.
I do not believe in coincidences….it is all about the cash not the faith……
