We most certainly are living in coronavirus hell, but Christians aren't the ones who got us here.
If Murphys Law promises that anything that can go wrong will go wrong, what well call the law of religion which could rightly be attributed to Jesus himself assures that if Christians can be blamed for something, they will be. It has become abundantly clear the coronavirus is no exception.
Heroic nurses, doctors, and first responders are risking their safety to save others. Many private businesses are doing everything they can to preserve their payrolls, with some even stepping up in innovative ways to provide desperately needed materials.
Meanwhile, politicians, pundits, and other Twitter blue-checks are having a field day from behind their screens and press podiums, praising the likes of communist China while ridiculing not only the Trump administration, but also conservative Christians in one broad swipe.
Take your pick from the smorgasbord of anti-religious offerings. Just Monday, the media attacked American success-story Mike Lindell, the MyPillow guy, for his faith and simply his appearance at a White House press conference after the CEO announced he would be converting 75 percent of his company’s production from pillows to masks. The gall.
Lindell, who encouraged Americans “to use this time at home to get back in the Word. Read our Bibles and spend time with our families,” received endless flak from journalists, who were too busy promoting themselves as the big story of the day to applaud an addict-turned-businessman for aiming to produce 50,000 much-needed masks per day.
Are you f cking kidding me, HE HAS THE MY PILLOW GUY ON TO SELL HIS GARBAGE PRODUCT DURING A PANDEMIC BRIEFING???!!!

So my Tiger King binge was interrupted by a text saying the CEO of MyPillow is now part of the presidential briefings on COVID19 … please tell me this is a prank.

Let’s not forget about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who, while his city is in shambles, went out of his way at a press conference to flex his tyrannical muscles at churches and synagogues.
After noting that most religious leaders had heeded social distancing warnings and disbanded regular gatherings, de Blasio went after “a small number of religious communities,” saying, “Everyone has been instructed that if they see worship services going on, they will go to the officials of that congregation, they’ll inform them they need to stop the services and disperse. If that does not happen, they will take additional action up to the point of fines” adding in a particularly unconstitutional swing “and potentially closing the building permanently.”

Never mind that any human interactions, including outdoor meetups or ride-sharing, or even encounters at essential businesses such as grocery stores, could result in COVID-19 transmission. Did de Blasio threaten to “permanently” close Kroger too if people are caught standing closer than six feet apart in the deli line? No, grocery shoppers and reckless spring breakers aren’t the primary culprits. It’s those pesky religious folks. Shut ’em down.
The bigotry didnt get much clearer than a glaring New York Times headline: The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals. The March 27 article, the title of which was later changed to The Religious Rights Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response, blames so-called Christian nationalism for its major role in Americas incompetent response to the pandemic, saying, Trumps response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies.
Coronavirus hell couldnt have been paved by the authoritarian regime of the Chinese Communist Party, which silenced whistleblowers and covered up the truth about the virus, ensuring its spread throughout the Western world. The World Health Organization cant be faulted, despite its kowtowing to the same propaganda machine, perpetuating lies that the Wuhan virus couldnt be transmitted between humans and that Chinas handling of the pandemic was exemplary.
American media, peddling false information and launching partisan smear campaigns, bear no responsibility for our spiral into coronavirus Hades. Nor do House Democrats, who withheld aid from ailing American families while trying to pork-barrel their leftist pipe dreams into an urgent relief package. No, for anti-religious writer Katherine Stewart, religiously conservative Republicans, or Christian nationalists as Stewart terms them, are the drivers of the deadly virus.
Luckily, Stewart defines this provocative Christian nationalist label, saying:
Religious nationalism has brought to American politics the conviction that our political differences are a battle between absolute evil and absolute good. When youre engaged in a struggle between the ‘party of life’ and the ‘party of death,’ as some religious nationalists now frame our political divisions, you dont need to worry about crafting careful policy based on expert opinion and analysis. Fealty to the cause is everything; fidelity to the facts means nothing.
Instead of strengthening her argument, Stewarts description of the rights alleged disregard for facts in favor of religious or Trumpian fanaticism exposes glaring leftist hypocrisy, to the point of even strengthening the suspicions from conservatives that progressivism is a surrogate religious credo.
By party of death and party of life, Stewart is referring to the religious rights commitment to eradicating abortion as the gravest human rights abuse of this era, and in lockstep with the rest of leftists, she regards concern for human life within the womb to be science denialism because womens rights or whatever. She seems to be forgetting about or ignoring life and death rhetoric from her side.
Dont mess with our future.
When it comes to climate, its all our lives at stake. The younger you are, the more consequences youll see.
Its life and death for us.
And we will fight like it. https://t.co/jlyFGkzCUW

Are we to believe it is “fidelity to the facts” that prompts Democrats, the media, and radical environmentalists to reject “expert opinion and analysis” in favor of a Swedish teen on the autism spectrum or a freshman New York Democrat’s preposterous and unscientific Green New Deal resolution? Is it not a “conviction that our political differences are a battle between absolute evil and absolute good” that leads a 17-year-old gun control activist to proclaim that his opponents are “on the wrong side” of history? Or has the left succumbed to “fealty to the cause”?
Stewart spends much of her remaining space cherry-picking fringe religious figureheads completely unrepresentative of evangelicals as straw men, railing against Trump’s cabinet members she doesn’t like, and shaming Christians for not sharing her affinity for big government, while failing to demonstrate that evangelicals paved the road to Wuhan virus hell. She even states, “President Trumps tendency to trust his gut over the experts on issues like vaccines and climate change does not come from any deep-seated religious conviction.”
While it’s worth noting the sheer volume of Bible-bashing that occurs with each new crisis or social issue, this latest list is hardly surprising. Leftists have found a way to fault Christians for most everything, it seems.
Most remarkable is the left’s ability to fall at the feet of the dubious Communist Party of China singing its praises and defending its honor while its leaders cover up the truth and infect the globe while at the same time dragging churchgoers into the mud, scoffing at their charity and threatening to close their doors. We most certainly are living in coronavirus hell, but Christians aren’t the ones who got us here.
Why Blame Communists For The Wuhan Virus When You Can Blame Christians?
racist! you failed to blame jews and muslims!
Ack! Please, Joy. Nobody wants to hear about you and your sex toy.
Or is Tiger King something else?
I blame communists because they are in truth responsible and they have supported their acts with lies and false accusations.
Blaming Christians pays a lot better!
Christianity...the original hate speech!
And they deserve it.
Imagine the world's response if this pandemic had started in the U.S. The UN would be in emergency session to see how much money they could extract from us and how much they could bring us down...
People like Joy Reid just prove the Bible to be true. The Bible says Christians will always be persecuted and they are.
Amen. But The Good News is, God does our fighting for us! Woo hoo! Errrrrr... Wu hu!
There is a good book from St. Augustine. It is the response to those that blamed Christians for the fall of the Roman Empire—apologetics. I wish I could have read it all, but the lingo was above my edumication level, and that’s saying a lot since it was written so long ago.
In a gist, soon after Rome converted to Chrisianity, the empire crumbled. They had a lot more to go on than the current crisis we face. My personal opinion is that we face just the opposite...the decline in submission to our Creator combined with immorality (i.e., homosexual marriage).
Hopefully, people’s eye open up and put God back in charge with a desire to make ammends.
St. Augustine’s book is, “City of God.”
Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus call your office.
Marxist/commie leftard loons believe in the delusion of the dialectic. The dialectic is always progressive by causing a constant and continuous battle between the thesis and the antithesis to produce the synthesis. They welcome this battle. They are the cause of divisiveness in America.
Or we could just acknowledge that this is how things go. Every century gets one. The lucky centuries ONLY get one. Bound to happen eventually. Especially with air travel. And honestly, we’re gonna be OK. It’s gonna go down as the easy one.
All communists and socialists of any kind and sort are enemy of The Constitution because their ideology demands the fedgov denies and transgresses against the restrictions placed on the fedgov by The Constitution.
They are enemy. Nothing else. And until treated as such, they will continue to infest and infect the body politic, spreading their gangrenous idiocies.
