Today’s highly interesting read (11/14/21): The Left is OK with gov’t-sponsored religion so long as it pushes vaccines

On this Sunday today’s read is from John G. West, Ph.D., vice president of the Discovery Institute. Here’s an excerpt:

Across the United States, government officials are using God to sell the public on more COVID vaccinations. Nobody seems to mind… But since when are leftists fine with having the government use tax dollars to promote a state-sponsored Bible lesson? They’ve cried “separation of church and state!” at far less overt connections to religion.

Simply put, the government has no right to tell people what God’s view of vaccination is — or isn’t.

From Elizabeth Felicetti, the rector of St. David’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia.

After fielding back-to-back complaints about masks in church—one regarding a fellow parishioner who had shirked a mask during a recent service and the other wondering whether our congregation had changed its policy from “strongly recommended” to “required,” because “everyone” was wearing them—I realized something surprising: Leading a church is harder now, in 2021, than it was in 2020, during the worst of the coronavirus pandemic. Last year, state and diocesan mandates meant I could throw up my hands and respond, “Sorry, not up to me.” And anyway, the answer was, for the most part, a straightforward “no”—no, we can’t gather for services, and no, we can’t sing. Now it is up to me, the rector of St. David’s Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia, and I am struggling to find a way forward.
