WARNING: The opinions I am about to express are my own, and do not reflect the opinions of the Administrators, Moderators, and other members of this website.  I know the topic is inflammatory and may trigger some people, but I also believe that what I am about to post needs to be posted.

[rant=mine] :evil:

There are Evangelist / Fundamentalist churches that falsely teach HIV / AIDS is a "Gay Disease".  The most visible of these churches may arguably be the Westboro* Baptist church, which will even stage protests against LGBTQ+ people at the funerals of deceased military veterans.

Many of these same churches also falsely teach that Coronavirus / COVID is a political hoax, and have staged mask-less protests that have turned into super-spreader events leading to illness and death.  Many of their leaders also deny the effectiveness of the covid vaccines in preventing the spread of the coronavirus; that is, until their last words before being intubated are "Get the vaccine!"

I hereby assert these two ideas:

1. Evangelist / Fundamentalist churches are more obsessed with judging "sinners" than with keeping people healthy.

2. If Evangelist / Fundamentalist church leaders could somehow be convinced that covid is somehow connected with or caused by their "Gay Community" bogey-man, there would be a massive vaccination effort in places where Evangelist / Fundamentalist churches have the greatest influence, and the coronavirus would be eliminated as a threat.

No, I AM NOT SAYING THIS SHOULD HAPPEN!!

I am saying that Evangelist / Fundamentalist churches are so effed up in their priorities that it would take an even bigger lie than the ones they already believe to get them to accept -- no, DEMAND -- receipt of the coronavirus vaccines.  Lies and false rumors about the coronavirus are being spread in Evangelist / Fundamentalist churches, and it needs to stop!

Now, all of you Evangelist / Fundamentalist Christian types can whine and cry all you want about how I am picking on you, and you can try to get me banned; but I have not typed one word in this post that is not valid.

Well, I have said my say, and now the moderators can deal with this post as they see fit.

Thank you, and have a nice day!

*Corrected.

Actually I agree --
but your views are pretty tame.
It remains on the surface - which is surprising, coming from ye, whom I greatly esteem.

I maintain the fundamental struggle today is between the Age of Enlightenment and the thousand years preceding it -- referred to as the Dark Ages.

But being not a Tallibunny nor an Evangelical, I still have a sense of humor :lol:

Don't be so quick to judge people because their sense of humor doesn't meet your approval. Humor is an excellent tool for dealing with the nasty world we're living in. We all have different sensibilities were that is concerned.

I agree with your sentiments. I don't see how they are that controversial.

I anticipate at least one long, disjointed post on the topic of religion, and at least one post falsely accusing me of blaming covid on members of the LGBTQ+ community.

I don't see how anyone could accuse you of blaming Covid on the LGBTQ community. What am I missing?

Only the behavior of certain other members who will twist the meaning of whatever is posted, either because they think it is "funny", because English is not their primary language, or because they just want to stir up trouble.

I still don't see how they could twist it in the direction you mentioned.

Are You Okay?

THere is NOTHING
'CONTROVERSIAL'
ABOUT 'THIS POST'

(At least not on the
'Wrong Planet', Overall,
Strangely, And Ironically So)

'The Church' As Whole

Is Responsible For

Both Trump's

Rise And The

Continued 'Evolution'

Of the Covid-19 'Original
Coke Pandemic' in the United States...

Of Course, Not Everyone in 'The Church', 'The Bride' of 'Frankenstein', is

Responsible Now For This Destructive 'State' of Affairs; Some of Us Are Going

Masked And Double Vaccinated And At Least Providing A

Healthier Example

Where

Human

Kind

is Currently,

Miserably Failing,

Overall, aS iGNORANCE DOES
HARM, RAPE, MAiM KILL MOST

Through All of Human HiSToRY

Separated From Both ReaSoN And LoVE...

Other That That THere Are Bigger 'Fish' to 'Fry' than Me, HeHe..;)

Thanks For 'The Coffee';

Yet, i am Way Too Naturally High to Drink
Caffeine Or Ingest Any Other Stimulant; God Yes,

Even 'Weed', Would Only Bring me Down Hehe; And A Beer too;

Anyway, Never the Less, MissLizard, 'Quiet' 'Hospitable', indeed...

Before i Ramble Any Further; Back on Topic As Less Than 500 Miles
From my Home, in Jacksonville, Florida, A Bit Away From 'the Trump Panhandle';

6 People Are Dead of Covid-19 FROM the 'IMPACT CHURCH', AND 4 OF THE 6 WERE
ASSESSED AS BOTH HEALTHY AND UNDER THE AGE OF 35; THIS OCCURRED IN JUST
THE LAST 10 DAYS; WHAT DO THEY ALL HAVE IN COMMON; THEY ARE ALL UNVACCINATED OF COURSE.

AnYWaY, Give the Pastor Credit Now as He is Attempting to Explain to His Congregation that

Prayers And Faith Are Not Enough; It's Just Like When You Have Heart Disease; You Get

Treated

Or Your

Heart Stops

Beating Thump, Thump, Thump...

And to Be Clear in This Case, no 'Trump' Stronghold...

True, Not Everyone Who Goes to 'Church' BelieveS in 'TRumP';

Never the less, Ignorance Still Harms, Rapes, Maims, And Kills

And in the Case of Pandemics, No One Gets A Free Ticket 'Out of Hospital' From 'Jesus'

Unless they

Are Vaccinated
As Latest Statistics

From Latest Reviews; Studies

Show That 99.99 Percent of

Folks Who Contract Covid-19
And End Up in the Hospital or Dead

Are UNVACCINATED; THE PASTOR OF
'IMPACT' IS Holding Vaccination Drives;

Sadly, The Congregation i Visit, Are Mostly
Trump Supporters and Even Though He Took
The Vaccination; They Are Afraid of Most Anything

Government Associated Now By The 'Reality' Sadly of
The 'Gaslit' Reality, Trump Sponsors Now For 5 or So Years...

Anyway, When You Are Dead, You Are Dead; Don't Be one of the
Ones Begging for the Vaccination, Before Intubation; And told Sorry Pal,

Too Late...

This is the

'Real Rapture';

Where 'Goats' Really

Get 'Burned on 5th Avenue' Now...
By The Promise of their Continued
Support Still of Their 'Dear Leader', Now...

Other Than That 'Tropical Storm Fred' is Soon
To Come From The Atlantic in the General Direction of Florida too...

Just Breezing

By With Another

Storm Warning from

my Personal Way of Forecasting
Stormy Disturbances Still On Their

Way for 'Twas A Dark And Stormy Night' of Course too...

Yes, Yes, Salty Lad; i Suggest Humor to Quell Any And All
Disturbances of Soul

my FRiEnD...

Other than

That

Remember

'Fred' Is Coming
to Florida it seems too...

Yet WiNTeR, iS STiLL A WayS AWaY...

And This Again, Is Just Another 'Storm Warning'
As True DeSaTaNiS is BReWinG 'Pure Evil Pandemic Storms' in Florida NoCeBO BLacK MaGicK NoW...

All For the Selfish Influence to Gain Additional Personal Material Status, and Power GainS in Politics too...

(Something About Creatures in 'Revelations'; Beasts Sprouting New TaLKinG Heads From THeir 'TRumP' ProGenitors)
