Coronavirus Thread

FYI for anyone hesitating, I would argue that voting is considered an essential service.

The government can't hold an election, even for health and safety reasons, without providing means to participate and it's far, far too late to get more absentee ballets. I also wouldn't want to be the cop that told a Texan that they couldn't vote.

El Paso has a HUGE Hispanic population - 82.8% in 2017. This is EXACTLY the type of people they want to suppress or stop from voting, Texan or not.
 
If you took every American death from covid 19 and dropped them from a helicopter like a turkey on the White House every 30 seconds, 24/7, you would be dropping corspes from a helicopter like turkeys for 3 months straight.

It would be amazing if someone interviewed trump, told him that, and then for the remainder of the interview, someone off camera dropped a wet sack of flour to the ground every 30 seconds to simulate the bodies falling.

Someone on my Facebook posted about how they think there's a COVID-19 cure ready to go, but it's being held back until after the elections, and multiple people have posted in agreement.
 
These are people who don't acknowledge the existence of the rest of the world.
No, no, no. It already exists in the rest of the world. That's why their numbers are so much lower than ours. Socialist Europe is just keeping the cure from us to try to make President Trump look bad because they're jealous of all the winning we've been doing.

Look, sticking it to those damn Americans is worth it to have so many actors engaged in a long con, really, they're not even getting paid much because we all agree.

And someone at work also told me that they thought this whole mask thing was going to go away on the 4th, too. Teh dum, it's everywhere.

Kenneth Copeland has declared that, since Trump has recovered from COVID, that makes Christians immune to the disease...

I sense a lot of "Well, if you got sick that just proves you didn't have the Holy Spirit in you..." coming on.

Tell your friends and family. If your loved one or their loved one died of Covid, it's because they weren't real christians.

As someone who has been told, about my chronic illness, "you're sick because you love Satan more than you love God", and other variations on my lack of faith or sinfullness, I'm pretty sure a lot of people are already saying exactly that. Far too many "christians" will push their friends and family under a bus if it means they get to proclaim their piety.

Saw this passage quoted today,
Revelation 13:3
One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast.

I'm not saying that Trump is the antichrist, but this passage should be a warning to Christians about claiming that surviving something deadly is proof of God's favor.
 
I would argue these piety assertions actually have nothing to do with whether or not the other person is pious. These are just insecure people eager for another excuse to reaffirm their “holier-than-thou” status. It’s literally no different than the person who considers themself wealthy and so never misses a chance to say, “I don’t worry about maintenance because if I have to I will just buy a new one” without actually stopping to consider how that might affect their future.

Well, he IS mentioned in REM's song "It's The End Of The World As We Know It".

Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
Breathing down your neck
Team by team, reporters baffled, Trump, tethered crop
Look at that low plane, fine then
 
My daughters friend goes to a baptist church, and wants her to go to youth group with her, which is fine. Whatever I believe I want her to know she can explore whatever beliefs she wants. The problem is they have a no questions asked policy with regards to face masks. When we asked their youth pastor about their policy, he said they “don’t mask shame”. You’re baptists. Shaming is what you do best. :Leyla:

Sorry kid, if they change their policy it would be different. I did have to explain how I question their commitment to their teachings when they allow things like this. I can’t think of a more selfish and greedy thing than saying “I don’t care who it kills, masks are uncomfortable and I don’t want to wear them.”

Also, the first horseman wears a crown (a corona).
 
The sad thing there are some people that connect the same dots but still vote for him, because they believe they will be Raptured while the rest suffer in Hell on Earth. A defeat to Trump would be another defeat to the prophecy of the End Times.
