The CDC’s recent flip flop over the use of masks for those already immunized for Covid-19 tells you how so many in politics and elsewhere have used the Religion of Science to hood wink, manipulate and cast fear into people’s lives. This happens in religious fundamentalism too.
What do both have in common, religion without reason. Science without reason is dangerous!
So much of what politicians (usually progressives since that is the case) have touted as science when it comes to Covid-19 has been theory and not even scientific theory like the theory of evolution.
They promulgate this theory as defined, dogmatic science and progressives bow to it in worship. I hate to say this, but democrats who tout themselves as progressive and enlightened are most susceptible because they are gullible.
You have to hand it to President Trump, with all his other disorders, he did not bow to science as religion or scientific theory as dogmatic and infallible. President Biden certainly has until yesterday when it was not politically expedient for him to do so as it concerns wearing masks no matter how ineffective.
I received this comment on the post about opened churches and anxiety disorders and people with them running the asylum:
As for the "anxiety disorders" jab, what do you expect when you post a notice at door disowning liability for illness/death traceable to attending Mass, tell people they really ought to wear an ineffective mask because it is so dangerous, enforce distance between people, yank fonts, hymnals, baskets, forbid physical contact, forbid even singing, etc etc etc.? Beat a dog and it will develop a flinch.
Yes, bishops freaked out too and developed serious anxiety disorders but also lawyer disorders in our litigious society. They did not want to get sued, thus mandated wearing signs placed on our churches warning people of the toxicity of those attending that might kill you; ordering you to wear masks that no science has said is effective on Covid-19 (a placebo); removing hymnals, Holy Water, collection baskets and six feet spacing, not five, or four or ten but exactly six feet spacing! No physical contact, no singing, no anything and based on what? science! HELL NO! It was based on flimsy theory and rank anxiety disorders and fear of lawyers and Catholic laity who don’t mind suing their parishioner who have contributed to the Church’s coffers.
As for me and my household? We are following Jesus as Catholics and faith and reason combined.
We are not following Science as a religion or lawyers who sue your pants off and wear diamond studded jeans. Real diamonds too!
