Fundamentalist Pandemics

Some of the loudest and foolish voices to re-open the country have come from the mental midgets within the evangelical community…..

I have written about these religious leaders that want their flocks to give them their checks from the government….and then there are the voices to return to “normal”…..

In the U.S., a variety of evangelical religious leaders have failed the test of reasoned public policy in outrageous ways. Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, railing at “tyrannical government,” refused to close his mega-church in Florida until the local police arrested him in March. He even insisted that church members in those services of 500 or more true believers should continue to shake hands with one another because “we’re raising up revivalists, not pansies.”

As he saw it, his River Tampa Bay Church was the “safest place” around because it was the site of “salvation.” Only in early April did he finally move his services online and it probably wasn’t to protect the health of his congregation either. His insurance company had cancelled on him after his arrest and his continued defiance of local regulation

These religious tools are only concerned about the loss of revenue not lives……

Not to worry for the fools have Donald the Orange in their corner and he has issued dire warnings if he is not obeyed…..

President Trump issued orders to the nation’s governors to allow houses of worship to open “right now,” saying he’ll “override” them if they don’t. The president made the unscheduled announcement Friday at the White House, taking no questions from reporters. He pronounced houses of worship “essential places that provide essential services,” Politico reports, and said the CDC is preparing pandemic guidance for them. Americans “are demanding to go to church, and synagogue, or to their mosque,” Trump said, adding that “ministers, pastors, rabbis, imams and other faith leaders will make sure that their congregations are safe” when they gather. Trump said that if governors have issues with his instructions, they’ll have to call him, “and they are not going to be successful in that call.”
The president lacks the legal power to override state orders, reports the Hill. But Justice Department lawyers have told Gov. Gavin Newsom that California’s plan to let schools and businesses reopen first makes for “unequal treatment of faith communities.” Health officials have said houses of worship are especially worrisome for spreading the coronavirus, and a blanket rule might be a bad idea. “You have to be careful,” Dr. Anthony Fauci said Friday. “If you’re in an area where there’s a relatively little infection, as there are in certain regions of the country, versus an area where there is still a high degree of infection, how you approach what you do in houses of worship really varies.”

This move is about the election and nothing else for the Orange man could care less if they are safe just how it looks to the spin doctors.  We are truly living in the most ignorant of times….this would give the Dark Ages a run for the ribbon of stupidity.

By The Way….you know all those sites that are calling for the re-open…….About half are bots!

As parts of the US have lifted shutdown orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s been a fierce argument online about the risks and benefits of reopening. New research suggests that bots have been dominating that debate.

Carnegie Mellon University researchers analyzed over 200 million tweets discussing COVID-19 and related issues since January and found that roughly half the accounts — including 62% of the 1,000 most influential retweeters — appeared to be bots, they said in a report published this week.

A Sucker Born Every Minute

I have written several times about the Green family, owners of Hobby Lobby, being conned in their endless search to prove the Bible is a historic document.

The family has scanned the world for artifacts that can prove the existence of everything in the Bible and in doing so has been caught with fakes and stolen artifacts…..read the story so far……https://lobotero.com/2020/03/19/theft-of-culture/

It looks like they were conned yet again…..

Dirk Obbink seemed eerily calm when a reporter knocked on his door near Oxford University last year. “I’d like to tell it,” the scholar said of his alleged role in a major antiquities scandal. “But I’m under a duty not to speak about the matter while it’s under investigation.” But that reporter, Ariel Sabar, has untangled the byzantine tale of how Obbink—a world-renowned classicist from Nebraska—allegedly made millions selling stolen papyri to US evangelicals, including a New Testament fragment that set the world of biblical studies on fire. In Sabar’s Atlantic piece, Obbink is portrayed as a legitimate papyrologist enticed by money. And in the Green family, who own the craft-store chain Hobby Lobby, he appears to have found the perfect mark.

The gospel fragment is one of several Obbink apparently sold to Hobby Lobby for the Green family’s Museum of the Bible and falsely dated to “circa 100 AD,” making them unique—the only New Testament fragments from the century in which Jesus is said to have lived and showing how his earliest chroniclers portrayed him. But those documents weren’t Obbink’s to sell. The scholar was arrested in April and accused of selling artifacts from Oxford’s Sackler Library, which was housing ancient texts on loan from the Egypt Exploration Society, per ArtNet. Now Obbink is out of an Oxford job and facing an uncertain future. But he maintains his innocence, saying that incriminating documents “have been fabricated in a malicious attempt to harm my reputation and career.” Click for Sabar’s full article.

Apparently this family has never heard the saying “buyer beware”…..ignorance and greed work well together and the Green family is proof of how profitable ignorance can be.

Covid-19 “Can’t Fix Stupid” Files

I have heard a lot of stupid coming from the mouths of what use to be caring rational people…..(well that may be a stretch)…..

These days dumbass statements are nothing new……even Donald the Orange keeps popping his lips and lying his ass off…..but he is not alone these days.

We always have those religious slugs that try to blame everything on something that they try to champion….like anti-abortionist, Alveda King….her reason that Covid-19 hit New York hard was …you guessed it….abortion……

Anti-abortion activist Alveda King implied last week that New York has been hit so hard by the COVID-19 pandemic because it is “the home of abortion.” Religious-right leaders routinely portray the U.S. as deserving of God’s wrath for permitting legal abortion.

King made her comments on a Wednesday night online gathering called by POTUS Shield founder Frank Amedia to promote “The Return,” a religious-right pre-election rally being planned for Sept. 26 on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. King, who is a member of the POTUS Shield leadership council, said she would be attending “The Return.”

On the call, Amedia asked King to talk about the topic of abortion, saying that “too many children have died, and the blood is crying out to our Lord.” Amedia reminded listeners that he has prophesied that God would allow President Donald Trump to name three Supreme Court justices and enough lower court judges to change the law of the land. Trump has an “assignment of God” to do away with abortion, Amedia said, which is a reason that POTUS Shield supports Trump:

Alveda King Implies COVID-19 Hit New York So Hard Because It Is ‘The Home of Abortion’

Then there is the Ohio lawmaker and his reason for no mask…..

An Ohio state lawmaker is refusing to wear a mask because, well, it would cover his face. In a Monday Facebook post, GOP Rep. Nino Vitale cited his religious beliefs in refusing Republican Gov. Mike DeWine’s recommendation to wear a mask to limit the spread of COVID-19, per the Hill. “This is the greatest nation on earth founded on Judeo-Christian Principles,” Vitale wrote. “One of those principles is that we are all created in the image and likeness of God. That image is seen the most by our face.” Therefore, “I will not wear a mask.”

With the state moving to reopening certain nonessential businesses, DeWine announced April 27 that people in stores would be required to wear masks. However, he quickly reversed course, saying masks would be recommended but not mandated. Vitale’s post included video clips of DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton discussing the recommendation. He directed officials to “ignore the unelected Dr. Acton’s orders” and “open your counties now, before it’s too late.” He also asserted the virus was no worse than the flu, though research to date on COVID-19 shows it has a higher death rate and is more contagious, per Live Science.

Really?  I would think God is better looking than this whack-a-doole…..he is off his nut.

Then we have a failed conserv candidate and her racist rant…..

DeAnna Lorraine, a failed congressional candidate and conspiracy theorist, said in an online video Wednesday that she wasn’t “buying” the fact that the COVID-19 coronavirus is disproportionately affecting black Americans, but added that if it were, it may be because black people are ignoring social distancing guidelines to have big “house parties and barbecues and crawfish boils.”

DeAnna Lorraine Is Being Totally Not Racist When She Says Black People Get COVID-19 Because They Have ‘House Parties and Barbecues and Crawfish Boils’

She is a d/bag in more ways than one.

How much longer will the idiots inn the heartland listen to the babbling of morons like this douche…..

On Monday night’s episode of his “YourVoice America” program, ardent pro-Trump commentator and right-wing conspiracy theorist Bill Mitchell once again declared that President Trump is being guided by the hand of God.

“We are up against evil right now, but God is on our side,” Mitchell declared. “The media was against Trump. Never Trump was against Trump. The Democrats were against Trump. The Obama DOJ and FBI were against Trump. It was just up to God plus us and that was enough to get Donald Trump elected.”

“This is God’s country,” he continued. “God founded this country and he is not going to give it up to a bunch of America-last, manage-the-decline, Vichy-government Democrats. He is going to keep in charge of this country.”

Bill Mitchell: God Is ‘Guiding Donald Trump’s Hand’

Really?  So far I have seen NOTHING from Trump that would have me believe that God cares one way or the other about the spineless slug.

Then there are the idiots like this one from Montana….

GOP Montana Rep. Rodney Garcia is refusing calls from his own party to resign over remarks that the U.S. Constitution says socialists can be shot.

The Billings Gazette reports: “Garcia rejected the call to resign Monday, saying that the ‘only way I would give my resignation is if God asked me to.’ The pressure to resign came after Garcia raised a question Friday during a Republican party organizing meeting in Helena. Garcia said he was concerned about socialists “entering our government” and socialists “everywhere” in Billings, before saying the Constitution says either to shoot socialists or to put them in jail.”

Montana Lawmaker Who Says Socialists Can Be Shot: The Only Way I Would Resign ‘is if God Asked Me To’

Then there is the conspiracy told by FUX News about Bill Gates creating this virus and why…..

Indeed, former Fox News and Fox Nation hosts Diamond and Silk — the stage names of Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richards — recently implied that Gates’ desire for a vaccine was linked to a “population control” agenda. (They were later fired from the network for saying this.) Florida pastor Adam Fannin argued that Gates supports vaccination so he can implant “digital certificates” into people that would send information about COVID-19 infectees to the United Nations, and that Gates wants to “depopulate” the world.

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……

Covid-19 Charlatans

Sorry for the redundancy but these types of people chap my ass!

We have heard the stories of those pigs that are price gouging…..and those that are hoarding stuff…..but the worse of the worse are those religious types that are pretending to care about their flocks.

Like that idiot pastor in Louisiana that defied the isolation rule and pack his so-called church……and that has lead to the death of a parishioner….

A parishioner at the Life Tabernacle Church in Central, Louisiana has reportedly died from the coronavirus weeks after the church’s pastor defied his state’s ban on large gatherings to hold packed church services.

Local news station KALB reports that a coroner’s report of a 78-year-old parishioner of the church revealed that he had died after being infected with COVID-19.

“The coroner’s report lists the man’s cause of death as acute respiratory distress syndrome, pneumonia, and COVID-19,” KALB reports. “Acute respiratory distress syndrome and pneumonia are frequently found in patients who die of coronavirus.”

(Raw Story)

By the way the pastor’s name is Tony Spell

Where have I heard that name?   Thinking…..thinking…..

Oh yeah…he is that religious clown that wants your stim check……

In a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday, the Rev. Tony Spell called on the public to get behind a new online challenge he is dubbing the #PastorSpellStimulusChallenge.

There are three rules to the challenge, Spell said in the video. The first rule is that it starts on Sunday. The second, he said, is for people to “donate your stimulus money.”

“Rule number three,” he continued, is to “donate it to evangelists, North American evangelists who haven’t had an offering in a month; missionaries, who haven’t had an offering in a month; music ministers, who haven’t had an offering in a month.”

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/493237-louisiana-pastor-donate-stimulus-checks-evangelists

These evangelists care more about cash than their flocks…and that goes for Falwell, Graham and any other money hungry religious leader.

First this fool can BITE ME!  Second…a man of GOD MY ASS!

These people are why Christianity gets a bad name…..they do not represent the teachings of Christ….only their individual GREED!

Stay away from charlatans like this “man” (I use the term “man” loosely) for the “flock” means nothing to them….they just see dollar signs not the faithful.

The die has been rolled and small business should get their stim money soon…..and now there are others that are trying to claim some of the cash…..religious groups.

WASHINGTON — Prominent US religious groups clashed Friday over an administrative rule that allows funds from the coronavirus stimulus bill passed last week to go to houses of worship reeling from the economic shock of the pandemic.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) unveiled its final interim rule Friday morning that said religious groups will be eligible for funding under the CARES Act, a $2.2 trillion emergency relief package that US President Donald Trump signed into law.

The Interfaith Alliance, a Washington-based nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom, criticized the move as crossing the boundaries between religion and state.

“This is a direct violation of the separation of religion and government,” said Katy Joseph, the group’s policy and legislation adviser. “Emergency assistance funding is supposed to help small businesses pay their employees during an economic crisis – not channel taxpayer dollars to private religious institutions.”

Not everyone agrees. The Orthodox Union advocated heavily for provisions that would help religious nonprofits stay afloat amid the pandemic.

https://www.timesofisrael.com/religious-groups-clash-over-us-government-giving-virus-aid-to-houses-of-worship/

These groups do not pay taxes so they should not expect the government to bail them out…..they whine at the thought that they might have to pay taxes….yet they want free money to keep themselves going…..screw them!

I agree it would be a violation of the separation of church and state……

Will Those That Pray Together Die Together?

In this time of need and this time of separation there are a few states that are letting their residents meet and pass their germs from one to another.

I know what the Hell am I going on about, right?

I am talking about the irresponsibility of religious leaders…..like these…..

Then there is Franklin Graham….a slug from the get-go…..

Franklin Graham blamed sinners for the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic during a Saturday night appearance on Fox News.

Host Jeanine Pirro noted the growing death toll and wondered how God could let that happen.

“Well, I don’t think it’s God’s plan for this to happen,” Graham said.

“It’s because of the sin that’s in the world, judge,” he argued.

I have NO use for parasites such as these “leaders”……These fools should be charged with Criminal Endangerment….

There are a few states that exempt religious gatherings from the separation orders that all of us are suppose to be honoring…..

Florida is among several states issuing orders for people to avoid leaving their homes but granting certain exemptions for religious services over concerns that forcing houses of worship to close would violate the constitutional right to religious freedom.

Michigan, New Mexico, Delaware, Ohio, Texas and West Virginia have also allowed some exemption for religious services.

Other states with stay-at-home orders, such as Virginia and Maryland, are requiring places of worship to limit in-person services to 10 people to comply with bans on large gatherings while adhering to physical distancing measures. Many houses of worship across the country have voluntarily ceased holding public services.

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/490908-florida-other-states-allowing-church-services-during-coronavirus

I have no problem with people needing spiritual help….but not at the expense of the health of us all……

Personally, anyone that ignored the separation orders that tests positive should be fined heavily and those religious leaders that promoted these people to violate the order should be fined heavily as well and a mandatory prison term of 1 year…..no exceptions….no excuses…..

People that need others to pray with them have NO spiritual connection….they just need to be around others not that the religion has a whole lot to do with it.

This is another one of those WTF moments that I go on about…..no accounting for stupid…..you just cannot fix stupid.

These types of opportunists make me ill.

First…there was the idiot that wanted to put hands on a faith healing for those with Covid-19….

A pastor in Alabama this week invited people who have been infected with coronavirus into his church so that they could be treated with the power of prayer, despite guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control to avoid large gatherings.

Patheos reports that Chris Bartlett, pastor of the Boaz Church of God in Boaz, Alabama, wrote a now-deleted Facebook post in which he criticized other churches for temporarily closing to help slow the spread of the disease.

Second there is a Florida pastor packs a megachurch because he can defeat Covid-19……

While scientists and doctors are urging people to social-distance to stop the spread of the coronavirus, one Florida megachurch bucked the trend to host their own service on Sunday that packed people in with a dangerous crowd.

The River Church in Tampa was packed with people looking for hope, TMZ reported Sunday. Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has denounced the social distancing claiming that he can cure the coronavirus just like he did with the Zika virus (which still exists).

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/03/florida-residents-pack-into-megachurch-after-pastor-promises-he-can-cure-coronavirus/

BTW…this idiot was arrested…..

Florida officials have arrested the pastor of a megachurch after detectives say he held two Sunday services with hundreds of people and violated a safer-at-home order in place to limit the spread of the coronavirus. According to jail records, Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne turned himself in to authorities Monday in Hernando County, where he lives. He was charged with unlawful assembly and violation of a public health emergency order, the AP reports. Bail was set at $500, according to the jail’s website. Hillsborough Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a news conference that he negotiated with the attorney of Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne to turn himself in. His church is located in Tampa.

Chronister said his command staff met with The River at Tampa Bay Church leaders about the danger they are putting themselves—and their congregation—in by not maintaining appropriate social distancing, but Howard-Browne held the services anyway. The Sheriff’s Office also placed a digital sign near the church driveway that said to practice social distancing. “Shame on this pastor, their legal staff and the leaders of this staff for forcing us to do our job,” Chronister said, adding, “We are hopeful that this will be a wakeup call.” The church has said it sanitized the building, and the pastor said on Twitter that the church is an essential business. He also attacked the media for “religious bigotry and hate.” The county and governor’s orders require gatherings, including those held by faith-based groups, be fewer than 10 people to limit the spread of the coronavirus. A livestream of Sunday’s 3½-hour service showed scores of congregants.

Finally, A pastor is threatening Satan…….

elevangelist Kenneth Copeland, who said last week that God told him the coronavirus would “be over much sooner than you think” (but still wants you to tithe even if you’ve lost your job), offered up what I can only assume is a magic spell this morning in order to destroy COVID-19.

And that’s why the pandemic is now over.

(It’s not over.)

Copeland screamed out at Satan to “get off this nation” and “crawl on your belly,” before declaring the crisis to be “over.”

That will no doubt scare the virus into submission.

Then to add to the stupidity is as always ……social media…..

In times of a viral outbreak, why not make a viral video? That was the thought process of TikTok user Ava Louise, who once appeared on Dr. Phil’s show as a rebellious teen and confessed, “I want to have purpose and meaning.” The self-proclaimed Instagram influencer tried to give herself just that by making a TikTok video showing her licking an airplane toilet seat, with the words “coronavirus challenge” overlaying the clip. “Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane,” Louise posted. As of Wednesday, the video had more than 460,000 views on Twitter. Per Louise herself, she’d hoped the TikTok would catch on. “I’m looking for a record deal and a reality show about my messy life,” she tells People, which notes she’d posted inflammatory tweets about the virus previously, including one that read “coronavirus is for poor people and poor people only.”

Many weren’t happy with Louise’s stunt. “Put her ass in jail!” tweeted The View‘s Meghan McCain—to which Louise responded with an Instagram post showing her posing in a bikini, noting, “Meghan McCain could NEVER.” Business Insider—which notes Louise said she created the video to “trick boomers into giving her attention,” thanking media outlets for calling attention to it all—reports on a follow-up video by Louise that went up after the TikTok. In it, the 21-year-old, who says she’s a public relations major at Rutgers University, drinks a White Claw and reads from a scripted response, per Heavy.com. “You’re all so f—king stupid,” she says. “There’s a reason coronavirus is taking out people over 50, because you’re all idiots who ruined our country … Darwinism’s doing its job by knocking you out with this virus.” Response from the internet? “I’m sure her parents are proud,” tweets one observer.

The bitch that issued this challenge has seen a man go to the hospital for licking….

A man who filmed himself licking a toilet bowl in the ‘coronavirus challenge’ is now reportedly ill in hospital with the deadly disease.

In bizarre footage posted on TikTok, the man can be seen placing his mouth around the bowl and extending his tongue.

According to Piers Morgan on GMB, the same man is now receiving treatment.

The presenter said: “You may remember also the other idiot, this is also in America, as part of the coronavirus challenge some morons are doing, went into  his local toilet cubicle and licked the bowl.

“I think this called karma – he’s got coronavirus.”

Does anyone remember Jim Bakker and the Praise The Lord (PTL) club……if not then a quick update for you…..

Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker were among the most famous televangelists in America, living a life of luxury with multiple houses, expensive cars and more money than God, when their empire all came crashing down amid sex and financial scandals.

By the mid-’70s, the Bakkers were becoming household names through their TV show, “The PTL Club” — PTL stood for “Praise the Lord” or “People That Love.” Initially it aired on a small North Carolina station owned by media mogul Ted Turner.

“What [Bakker] really wanted to do… was create a Christian version of ‘The Tonight Show’,” said John Wigger, author of “PTL: The Rise and Fall of Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker’s Evangelical Empire.” “Which was really the first of Bakker’s big innovations, the Christian talk show.”

https://abcnews.go.com/US/scandals-brought-bakkers-uss-famous-televangelists/story

Prison and financial ruin could not stop Bakker….and thanx to the new virus he is back…..

Right Wing Watch reported that televangelist Jim Bakker is urging his followers to drink a solution of colloidal silver to protect themselves from coronavirus — and a guest who was selling it promised that a dose will cure them and strengthen their immune system within 12 hours.

“Well, let’s say it hasn’t been tested on this strain of the coronavirus,” said his guest. “But it’s been tested on other strains of the coronavirus and has been able to eliminate it within 12 hours. Totally eliminate it, kills it, deactivates it. And then it boosts your immune system, so then you can support the recovery, because when you kill the virus, then the immune system comes into action to clear it out. So you want a vibrant immune system as well as an ability to deactivate these viruses.”
