Hemant Mehta reports at The Friendly Atheist:
What are politicians doing to help people in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak? Republican State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz of Pennsylvania is doing her part by filing a bill, House Resolution 835, calling on everyone to pray and not eat.
Because that’s how you defeat a virus in crazytown. This is theocratic wish fulfillment. Just read through the language for “A State Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer.”
Borowicz literally says that God sent this pandemic as a “punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins.” The resolution isn’t about the pandemic. Borowicz is just using the virus as an excuse to shove her Christian faith upon everyone else.
Borowicz last appeared on JMG when she delivered a House invocation that cited Jesus 13 times just before the swearing-in of Pennsylvania’s first female Muslim lawmaker. Hit the link and read her utterly bonkers resolution.
Pennsylvania State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R., Clinton) has introduced a resolution calling for A State Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer because the coronavirus pandemic “may be but a punishment inflicted upon us for our presumptuous sins”:https://t.co/qlxZn47lXS pic.twitter.com/gRacY2iHX6
