Our friend Jerry over at Grumpy’s Grumblings has another post out today letting us all know once again, that snake oil salesmen/evangelical pastors are continuing to divide us on COVID, all while raking in the big bucks from their gullible flock. I’ve included a link to his site at the end to continue reading. Thanks Jerry!
Prior to 2016 I couldn’t have imagined a second civil war coming to the USA during my lifetime. Five years later, in late 2021, I can’t foresee this nation avoiding a civil war within the next few years. Melodramatic hyperbole, you say? Well, here’s some of my evidence pointing to America’s imminent civil war.
The most prominent current point of conflict is the debate over the COVID virus. Conspiracy theorists have questioned and/or openly denounced easily verifiable facts about the virus’s origins, its threat, and the standard, science-based mitigation protocols. And then, those conspiracy cranks have taken direct aim at the most important weapon in the fight against a mindless-but-relentless virus that has killed at least 635,000 Americans—vaccines.
God Told Me, So No Room for Debate
Leading the fight against COVID vaccines are evangelical pastors and leaders, particularly white evangelical leaders. This morning I watched a YouTube “sermon”—in truth more of a rant—by a “pastor” named Hank Kunneman.
The title for the Kunneman video is “Watch What God Said About the Vaccine.” Well, there you have it: God said it, so any debate over the matter is over before it can begin. Who dares to argue against God? Certainly not me. But I will argue against Hank Kunneman. The man is, like so many of the current crop of evangelical “pastors,” a shyster getting rich by declaring himself God’s confidential conduit to common folks. Once these snake-oil salesmen convince their gullible flock that they have that special connection to God, they can declare day to be night and night day, and their followers will rearrange their entire lives to align with God’s word as spoken through His “anointed” mouthpiece.
This war we’re about to start is not just about a virus or vaccines; it’s about protecting our freedoms as Americans.
