    Recently, the new New York Governor, Governor Kathy Hochul, gave a speech/sermon at a church about the relationship of God and the vaccines.
    https://www.governor.ny.gov/news/ru...hul-attends-service-christian-cultural-center

    An exerpt from the sermon:

    Read what she says carefully, atheists. The Governor of New York believes that the vaccine was a product of God, through divine inspiration. This makes the scientists and doctors are a sort of priest or prophet class. She says that God wants everyone to get vaccinated, and that to go unvaccinated is to sin against God. She then calls on the vaccinated to become her apostles, and to go out and vaccinated others, as though the act of vaccination is some sort of Baptism.

    How do atheists or satanists on this board feel about this? Is it right for the Governor of New York to mandate what she sees as a religious ceremony? Can people be forced to into baptisms?

    They collect tokens off mountain dew wrappers and send them off for a free politician by the looks of it.

    I bet there were more aetheist scientists involved in developing the vaccine than Christian ones.

    She doesn't really see it that way, she's just playing a role in order to try and break down the resistance of the religious who seek exemption.

    This is just another nefarious coercion method being employed by those in power, to pressure vaxx acceptance from those in religious circles who aren't already taking the bait.

    Listen to the Governor of New York. God created them and inspired them to make the vaccine. According to Governor Hochul "God did answer our prayers. He made the smartest men and women, the scientists, the doctors, the researchers - he made them come up with a vaccine. That is from God to us and we must say, thank you, God. Thank you!"

    Don't tell me that you don't believe this woman!!!! Believe all women or something something........

    Conservatives say God created America. Do you have a problem with that?

    It might be a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

    One party rules a city for decades. They enact laws that keep the voting public poor, undereducated, victims of crime, and reliant on the services that the Government provides.

    That same party says "I know there are no jobs, I know you've dealt with violence, poverty, white flight, and now deal with gentrification. We will continue to take care of you. We love you!"

    The victims of this one party rule now love their captors and are loyal. Makes as much sense as anything else when you consider reliably voting for the same failed policies and useless politicians.

    If believing that the scientist invented vaccine with divine aid (after they prayed) gets the theists to take the vaccine, then that is better than them praying instead of taking the vaccine like most on the religious right.
    It is nothing new! Theist frequently claims a lot was done by prayer -after the scientist and doctors put the actual work in.


    As for believing vaccine is a kind of baptism. Lol!
    And Im not seeing anything about atheists or satanist being exempt from vaccine -except in the clickbait title. On the contrary, if they really think vaccine is a baptism, they should WANT to vaccinate atheists and satanists to save their souls. And the Atheists and satanists certainly do not share the delusion about vaccine somehow imposing religious belief.

    Which Conservatives say that and which God are we talking about?

    Jews and Elohim? Muslims and Allah? Christians and Yahweh?

    I highly doubt that. A lot of scientists historically and currently were and are Christians. There are scientists of all faiths.
