Posted on 03/28/2020 11:29:51 PM PDT by bitt
The New York Times published an op-ed Friday that blamed evangelical Christians for the coronavirus pandemic.
The argument, by journalist and author Katherine Stewart, is that because religious voters supported Trump, that means he governs without regard for science.
Stewart also claims that Republicans, more than Democrats, are likely to deny science.
In her op-ed, titled The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals, she writes:
Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.
At least since the 19th century, when the proslavery theologian Robert Lewis Dabney attacked the physical sciences as theories of unbelief, hostility to science has characterized the more extreme forms of religious nationalism in the United States.
She then goes on to provide several quotes from pastors who pushed back against the idea of closing their churches.

I didn’t know Evangelical Christians were in control of Red China and Wuhan.
Got any mustard for that pretzel logic?
How many genders does science say there are? I thought that would shut you up, honey.
Do you think the NYT realizes how idiotic they sound? I mean it’s got to be either an epic case of reality disconnect or they know it and they just dont care. Checkout line tabloids sound more plausible than they do.
Brilliant. Another “deplorables / rubes” moment.
Nothing galvanizes a voter base like being insulted by elitoids.
Democrats believe in science except for when it comes to history, economics, genetics, gender, sexuality, cultural studies etc.
You win the internet 👍.
And 80 years ago how many more Jews were murdered in the holocaust because the birdcage liner covered it up. They just are the atheist paper of no record
If saying China virus = you want violence against Asians, blaming CV19 coming to America on Christians = you want to see violence against Christians.
Hmm, op-ed rearranged spells dope.
He won the majority of the Catholic vote. I guess we don’t believe in science either.
Being called out by the times or Washington Post is a badge of honor
