They deny pandemics.
They deny climate science.
They deny life sciences (evolution, stem cell therapies).
A pandemic wreaks devastation and death, and they demand their “right” to join with others in close-knit orgies of worship, protest, ad hoc Trump rallies and the sharing of infections.
The evangelical megachurches — the dinosaurs of the 21st Century — that are still holding massive, densely-crowded services are death cults every bit as much as Jim Jones (Jonestown Kool Aid massacre) and David Koresh (Waco). These Branch Covidians can use grape flavored Kool Aid for their communion.
And these death-cult Grim Reapers know exactly what they are doing. One “pastor” even came right out and said, “Christians should be willing to die for their faith.”
Anti-science superstitionists will be the ones disproportionately impacted, because those who respect science and heed its warnings and recommendations will be the ones to survive.
The deniers and hoaxers self-select for evolutionary elimination as they compete for the next round of Darwin awards.
They can deny Darwin but they cannot escape Darwin.
