People Who Are Helping

These people are helping by thinning the herd.

Pastor says only “sissies” & “pansies” wash their hands to prevent coronavirus

I got to tell ya, anyone who takes advice from a pastor who uses terms like "sissies" and "pansies" well, I don't really think the world would miss them if they were to die from taking that advice.

“If you’re putting out pamphlets and telling everybody to use Purell before they come into the sanctuary and don’t greet anyone, you should just turn in your ministry credentials and burn your church down — turn it into a casino or something,” he said. “You’re a loser. Bunch of pansies. No balls. Got neutered somewhere along the line and don’t even realize it.”

Yes, only a "pansy" would use hand sanitizer to kill a deadly virus. Real men shoot the virus off od their hands with a .45!

He also said that coronavirus prevention measures are the work of the devil.
“Let me tell you if the devil doesn’t want there to be mass gatherings — it’s time to hold mass gatherings. If I lived in Italy I would call an open-air crusade to pray for the sick. If you have to go to jail, go to jail.”

Wow. Where to begin?
Okay, first of all, the Coronavirus protection measures have been endorsed by his Holiness Pope Francis, so I'm not really sure how you come up with this "work of the devil" nonsense. What are you basing that on? Oh, nothing! Right!

And to take this absurd premise that preventing disease and death is something that the devil came up with, and build on that shabby rickety foundation an argument for defying both the law and common sense, I'm guessing they didn't teach logic or critical thinking at wherever you got your divinity degree. Did they by any chance teach any science at that school?

While he rejects a science-based approach to coronavirus prevention, he did say last week that there is something that will protect America from the disease: Donald Trump’s policy towards Israel.

“They can say whatever they want, he honored Israel. Obama honored the enemies of Israel; Trump honors Israel, and it’s a massive difference,” Shuttlesworth said.

Oh yeah. That makes sense. That explains why there were so many more coronavirus deaths during the Obama administration than under Cheeto Mussolini. It all adds up.

Trump honors Israel, and it’s a massive difference. And because of that, I predict America will be minimally affected by coronavirus,” Shuttlesworth said.

Ah, okay. Well, let's see. This article was published on March 12. It is now March 31. Let's see how that prediction is holding up. . .

Okay, so that's who this Rev. Shuttlecock is. But how is he helping to thin the herd? Glad you asked!

Pastor: Despite COVID-19, I’m Planning a “Woodstock”-Like Easter Gathering

Let's see. Woodstock was "3Days of Peace and Music" with some of the finest musicians of that or any era. A weekend of peace, love, sex, drugs and rock&roll.
Your thing is going to be what, 3 Days of Praying and self-flagellation? A weekend of celibacy, sobriety and Christian Contemporary music?

I’m gonna announce it… We’re gonna hold an outdoor Easter blowout service. Not online. A national gathering. You come from all over, like Woodstock. And we’re gonna gather and lift up Jesus Christ.

Yeah, you're gonna lift up Jesus Christ. Why do these epeople think that Jesus Christ needs them to lift him up? Isn't he already in Heaven? Is there some higher level that he could get to? And it's not like he needs them to be his publicists. He's pretty much the most famous person in history no matter what John Lennon thinks.
But yeah, you're gonna be lifting up Jesus Christ. Anf you're gonna be sending a whole bunch of your gullible rube followers to meet him prematurely. And I gotta say, I have no objection.

Rev. Jonathon Shutter Island is helping to thin the herd with his brain-dead insane mania for defying basic safety procedures.
Tomorrow: More people who are helping to thin the herd.

A lot of fundamentalists believe the Catholic Church is Satanic. To a religious fanatic, the worst thing in the world is a fellow religious fanatic of slightly the wrong kind.

Your thing is going to be what, 3 Days of Praying and self-flagellation?

It will also be attended by several quintillion of the finest coronaviruses of this or any era.

With any luck, they'll draw thousands of the wingiest wingnuts, and do the country a favor.

Although we'll then be subjected to the fever dreams of the survivors: "Jesus saved me from the Obamavirus!"

Thinning the herd for sure. It will be interesting come November to see how many of them are left to vote.

This is so frustrating - Do they want to shut the economy until August?
