Covid-19 has created a new neo-morality and its corresponding self-righteous, puritanical sanctimony.
What is that, Fr. Allan, you many ask? Well, it is the morality of wearing masks. The neo-preachers of this neo-fundamentalist new religion, use guilt, guilt, guilt, plus manipulation, or is laying a guilt trip on a person, manipulation anyway to shame immoral, non compliant, evil non wearing mask individuals into submission and compliance to the dictators of this new neo-fundamentalist religion.
Apart from the requirement to wear a mask by states or municipalities, not all have made mask wearing a law or requirement. It is left up to the individual to wear the mask. The ones who wear them, should of course, wear masks that prevent them from contracting a contagion and then bringing it to vulnerable persons in their lives.
But that’s not enough, everyone has to wear a mask to make the insecure who go outside in public feel safe.
You would think if masks are effective, that the one wearing the mask would not contract Covid-19 from non mask wearers.
And of course there are a variety of opinions from rocket scientists to medical doctors concerning the effectiveness of masks that are not “medical masks.” Pointing this out gives a brain hemorrhage to those who are the dictators of the advice they have gotten from their favorite expert, contradicting experts notwithstanding.
What do you think of this new neo-fundamentalist religion which uses manipulation, guilt and the fires of hell to force you to wear a mask, whether or not you care about getting Covid-19 while the one wearing the mask willingly, should be protected from the neo-atheists who don’t believe in the new neo-fundamentalist religion whose only moral teaching is “you shall wear a mask”!
And now that the fear-mongers of this neo-religion have their dictators effectively using guilt and manipulation to get everyone to wear a mask, will we be required by these dictators in the future, once Covid-19 passes into the annals of pandemic history, to wear a mask each and every flu season? Wait and see!
