The majority of church goers are conservative.  Conservative and humanity are mutually exclusive concepts.

If you want to be free of all those pesky restrictions aimed at keeping people alive, I hear there's a vacant little town in Guyana that likes your sort of "church".  Bonus: you don't have to spend the big bucks on Kool Aid, the cheaper-and-just-as-good Flavor Aid will take care of all your desires.

Sided with the virus and their coffers, instead of humanity.

It's blatantly obvious why any church would oppose Covid restrictions on capacity, lockdowns, and general public health restrictions:  They need asses in seats in order to rake in the tithing.

I've sat in a church before that you could probably call evangelical, but nothing like a megachurch (Wesleyan, if you must know).  I've heard sermons where a pastor, probably in his 70's, preaches with utter glee how he believes Jesus will return to earth (and presumably bring about the end of times) during his lifetime. And then I see people with small children applauding this with great adoration.

And I'm like, do you people understand that you're applauding a belief that the whole world will go up in a ball of hellfire before your own child graduates high school?  Like, do these people get that?  And do they care?  Do they not love their own children?

Jesus, maybe.  But it's hard to read Exodus and come away thinking God isn't pro-plague.  So as the son of God, Jesus may be conflicted on the subject.

Every one of them that is reunited with god while members of that church count as a win for that religion.

You really don't want to lose them to the Buddhists or Joel Osteen et al. because they join a different church.

It's like a carnival midway game. Every 20 souls that die on that pastors watch moves him up one prize shelf. I think they need 250,000 to win the rainbo unicorn for their girlfriends.

It's all in the manual "So You Want To Be A Pastor?"
under 'Prizes and Badges'.

They've been brainwashed into believing that it will be a moment of pain followed by an eternity of jubilant reunion with their master.
They are literally ecstatic over the possibility of being united with their god, and seeing those "other people" punished for failing to accept their "wisdom" and "good news". Their own scripture even says that the wise won't understand it because their god has hardened them to his wisdom. It goes on to say that anyone who denies their prophecies is cursed by god.
Seriously, the anti-philosophers of the period did a great job of covering all the bases necessary to lock in the weak-minded.

Had a college buddy in town last weekend.  One of the few people crazier and drunker than I was back then.  Hadn't talked to him in years up until a couple months ago.  Find out he is an evangelical with 6 kids.  Great...

The plan was we were gonna hang out a couple days, go fishing, etc.  But I had to bring up the whole religious thing beforehand, because I am very much not religious, and I know how most of those folks are.  I was as polite as I was able, but I firmly told him I would not be praying with him or going to his vacation church (of course he found a church to go to during his visit).

Yep, that was a problem.  We argued on the phone, I shut him down repeatedly, we ending up just meeting for lunch.  He actually brought his vacation pastor to lunch.  SMFH  I handled pretty well, I thought, but that was an awkward cup of coffee.  I was able to keep it polite (I was stoned)  Geezus.

SCOTUS cannot give advisory rulings.  It must decide an actual issue.  If there are no restrictions in place, then there is no issue.  You cannot demand SCOTUS decide if extraterrestrials are valid slaves because no such law exists.

Did you miss the part where theres 8 billion humans on this planet? COVID didnt even slow down population growth rate even with like 10 million dead worldwide.

Since humanity refuses to do something real against climate change, what other option is there? Either a virus wipes out half of humanity or humanity is farked within 100 years.

"The so-called Delta variant of the coronavirus and the threat of an unconstitutionally-motivated restriction," hangs over the Calvary Chapel of Bangor, Maine, "like a sword of Damocles," its lawyers argued in the petition.

The classical reference is quite apt given Damocles sat upon a throne surrounded by countless riches, not unlike the spoils of fleecing a bunch of religious nuts of their money.

The larger issue is lawyers know full well they can't sue without being able to show harm.  They certainly would have known this lawsuit would go nowhere all the while billing enough to buy a bigger boat.

Hey knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, schitt-eating, gibbering morans, the rights of the individual in respect of his liberty may at times, under the pressure of great, dangers, be subjected to such restraint, to be enforced by reasonable regulations, as the safety of the general public may demand. In other words, during a pandemic some restrictions to your personal freedom are Constitutional.

Depends on the church.  Mine requires you show the priest your CDC vaccination card if you want to be maskless.  Otherwise, you wear a mask.  Every one at the services I've been to is vaxed.  Last Sunday, he wore a mask during Communion, and welcomed us to if we wished.  Plus, plenty of social distancing anyway.  (We're not a big congregation).  I've been very pleased with their reaction; shut down for over a year, and reopened to in-person services back in June.  I can certainly see why people are distrustful of a lot of those jackass charlatans, though.  A lot of us would prefer you don't lump us in with them.

You do not consider an increase of 16.44% in the average annual number of deaths to be deadly?
You do not consider the equivalent of the entire State of Vermont being killed to be deadly?

People like him are still convinced that it is no deadlier than the flu, even though it is something like 10 times deadlier. And even if you point out the 1.7% mortality rate of those infected they are just to farking ignorant to understand the medical significance of that number.
