Via email from hate group leader Tony Perkins:
To add to the absurdity of it all, the Left is blaming evangelicals for creating distrust about the vaccine — when it’s the Democrats’ own optics that make everyone wonder: what’s the point? People get vaccinated and the ridiculous government restrictions remain unchanged. Now, let me just say up front — I’m not opposed to the vaccine.
I think if you’re in an at-risk category, you should strongly consider getting one of the ethical shots (Moderna or Pfizer). I’m not opposed to the science either.
What I am opposed to is any government forcing people to get the vaccine — or shaming them into getting it, which is what the New York Times, MSNBC, and others are trying to do by claiming Christians are putting the entire nation at risk. That’s just another attempt to marginalize believers in the eyes of the broader community.
Truth is truth. It doesn’t change with whatever crisis we’re facing, or which party is in office. That’s why as Christians, we can’t shrink back in silence or hide in the shadows. We have to stand up and speak up when our faith is challenged.
