Across the country pastors revolted against stay-at-home orders, pitting public health concerns against claims of religious freedom. And we could have predicted that these grifters would encourage their rubes to show up. You can see how those deeply held religious beliefs —used to deny rights to women and LGBTQ Americans— eff’s us all over again.
Perhaps a visual aid will help. This little video was making the rounds yesterday:

You don’t have to be an epidemiologist to see that this Xristian Xrazie is not only delusional, she is a threat to public health. You can be assured that she is taking all of her exposure to Walmart, Home Depot, etc. She believes she (and she indicates the others in the cars pouring out of that megachurch parking lot) have a forcefield that will protect them from the virus, but discards the probability that they will be vectors for the rest of us.
It’s another kind of entitlement, really. Why should she (and her fellow true beliebers, er, believers) do anything for the common good when they know in their hearts that Baby Jeebus is going to protect them from something that they cannot even see. Why should she worry that she’s the modern equivalent of Mrs. O’Leary’s cow (in more ways than one).
Lady might be covered in the Blood of Christ, but she is also covered in the blood of her community. People will die who come in contact with her. But she’s fine with that. She’s saved.
