COVID Outbreak Linked to Christians Trusting Jesus Over Masks

Martha’s Vineyard COVID Outbreak Linked to Christians Trusting Jesus Over Masks

There’s been a COVID outbreak in Martha’s Vineyard, the Massachusetts island, that involves 11 people, five of whom were members of a Bible study. The other six were either their family members or people living in their houses.

The outbreak itself isn’t surprising news at this point. They’ve happened across the country. But what’s really messed up is how COVID-ignorant the people in this Bible study group are.

Jim Osborn, a reporter who contributes to the MVTimes and happens to be in that study group, says that their leader, Rev. Dan Davey, hasn’t required masks at all… because he allegedly said Jesus would protect everyone.

Davey “never wore a mask,” Osborn said. “He sort of gave us the impression that because it was a Bible study, we were under God’s protection during the Bible study, and I guess we all made that same false assumption.”

He denied telling study group attendees that God would protect them.

“I don’t recall ever saying, ‘God’s going to protect you, don’t worry about it,’” Davey said. “But I live my life, frankly, that God’s going to take care of me regardless. There were a lot of other viruses before COVID-19 came along, and I’m sure there’s more to come.”

Jesus Christ, these people… Does he not realize that many of the 330,000 dead Americans were Christians who believed in his God? They died. Jesus didn’t help them. I guess he thinks none of them were truly devout.

Davey kept digging his own grave, saying that contact tracing was an “inexact science,” that masks are all about personal freedom and that their efficacy is suspect because “The science on mask wearing is very inexact,” and that the COVID death count needed to be “put in perspective” with the flu. He’s either flat-out wrong or missing the point on all of those claims.

If there’s any silver lining here, it’s that the Bible study group has ended its in-person gatherings due to the cold weather and holidays. But the number of positive COVID cases stemming from that Bible study remains large, and there’s no telling how many other people they’ll spread it to. On an island like Martha’s Vineyard, where senior citizens are all over the place, it’s possible strangers will suffer because of the irresponsibility of these Christians.

Religious Scamvangelist: A COVID Vaccine Will Alter Your DNA and “Remove the God Factor”

Lying Pastor: A COVID Vaccine Will Alter Your DNA and “Remove the God Factor”

Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne has spent the majority of this year trying to spread COVID. He held in-person church services as the pandemic was breaking, continued gathering in-person over the summer without social distancing or any kind of mask requirement, and said back in August that anyone who took a potential vaccine would “be dead within a couple of years.”

Even today, the head of The River church in Tampa, Florida continues putting other people’s lives at risk.

The vaccine they’re counting on is an RNA vaccine that actually changes your DNA. So they want to remove the God Factor out of people. They won’t feel God. They won’t… because a lot of the stuff was… really in the creation of the Super Soldier, which they wanted to bring about soldiers which had no emotions whatsoever. So a lot of the stuff, it’s all the End Time wicked plan of the Enemy to totally destroy humanity because he hates man

To state the obvious, the preacher doesn’t understand science.

As news is emerging of vaccine breakthroughs and the very real possibility that effective shots are finally within sight, Howard-Browne urging his followers to avoid it at all costs:

The vaccine will not “alter your DNA” because that’s just not how it works. Nor is there a God gene that can be manipulated, nor is a vaccine capable of damaging your faith. (Rodney Howard-Browne is doing that all by himself.)

As expected, this Christian is already blaming a vaccine for destroying humanity after he’s spent months creating an environment for the virus to spread. He doesn’t care about you. He doesn’t care about your family. He doesn’t care about his own congregation. He only cares about himself. Everyone else can suffer. That’s what he believes Jesus would want.
