In Oklahoma pork packing town, Covid 19 spurs faith and fear.
...Still, some people in Guymon are dismissive of the COVID-19 risk, calling mask wearers “sheep” or suggesting God will protect those who have faith.“Being country people, it seems like our immunity is a lot higher, and we have Jesus,” says Kalye Griffin, 42, owner of the Top Hand Western Store.I honestly think Jesus can do a lot of wonderful things for people but I don't think protecting ignorant rednecks taking needless risks from Covid 19 is real high on his current "to do" list. I think self inflicted wounds rank a bit lower on the divine triage docket. But what do I know?
I saw this interesting comment on a Fox page I was trolling today, from Shoriyuken:
I mean as morbid as it sounds I would agree that liquor stores are more essential than churches. You don't want to simultaneously cut alcoholics off from their source and confine them to their homes; the physical and mental ramifications for them and those around them would be devastating. Also God is everywhere, booze is not.
