    Huh? The usual - if 93% of them survive, it's "PRAYZAH LOAD!"
    Y'know we're all called home anyhow.

    Evangelicals tend to flock together. They also tend to worship an orange demon, and if they wish to gather together to celebrate their common values I support them in that 100%.
    Except that they do not, after gathering together, follow this Biblical injunction: .2 Corinthians 6:17 "Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the LORD. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you."

    It USED to be a hoax, now it's bad.
    And it used to be bad to politicize the pandemic, but that's old news, too.

    My branch of the Church of Christ sometimes used cups, sometimes mini holders on a tray--to help prevent infects, I believe--actual wine was not considered uncanonical, but for prudence's sake it was only used in an emergency, when grape juice was not to be found.

    Lutheran, MS. We used the common cup quite often when I was young.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    I worked at a church camp about 80,000 years ago (long story.) We had a numb-nuts counselor who took pity on some inner city kids in his tent who had arrived with virtually nothing. Being Christian, he shared his toothbrush with them -- and they all got scarlet fever. Praise Him.

    Well, this was fucking obvious:

    A church revival that took place in mid-March has been linked to at least 28 cases of the novel coronavirus and two deaths in a small Kentucky community.
    Remember when the conspiracy was that Obama was bringing the US under Sharia Law? I think Christians are doing a fucking great job on their own making America less Christian.

    I love it that the trump supporters are actively trying to kill themselves.

    They'll gladly sacrifice 5-10% of themselves to prop up their oligarch overlords.

    Sadly, they will in the process infect many non-batshit people, who will also die.
