Christian pastor who thought COVID-19 is just ‘mass hysteria’ is among the first in Virginia to die from virus

Published 50 mins ago on March 26, 2020


One of the first deaths in Virginia from coronavirus was a 66-year-old Christian “musical evangelist” who fell ill while on a trip to New Orleans with his wife. As the Friendly Atheist’s Hemant Mehta points out, Landon Spradlin had previously shared opinions that the pandemic was the result of “mass hysteria” from the media.

On March 13, Spradlin shared a misleading meme that compared coronavirus deaths to swine flu deaths and suggested the media is using the pandemic to hurt Trump. In the comments, Spradlin acknowledged that the outbreak is a “real issue,” but added that he believes “the media is pumping out fear and doing more harm than good”


“It will come and it will go,” he wrote.

That same say, he shared a post from another pastor that told the story of a missionary in South Africa who “protected” himself from the bubonic plague with the “Spirit of God.”.......................

3. "It will come and it will go," For Spradlin it went very fast. But what should his followers care?


After all, he is supposedly nearer to his gad.

Or is their concern because good chance he is nearer to satan?

4. These idiots remind me of the story

http://billjohnsononline.com/the-parable-of-the-flood/

"The Parable of the Flood

A terrible storm came into a town and local officials sent out an emergency warning that the riverbanks would soon overflow and flood the nearby homes. They ordered everyone in the town to evacuate immediately.

A very religious man heard the warning and decided to stay, saying to himself, “I will trust God and if I am in danger, then God will send a divine miracle to save me.”"

7. And God had something to say to him...

...upon arriving at the pearly gates, our religious zealot began to complain, "Why didn't you save me?"

(and in the somewhat longer version I heard) God says, "Idiot! I SENT the weather forecasters first, then the town officials giving warnings and later the police went to remove people; eventually the last rescue boat was sent and you declined. It is a miracle I didn't strike you dead with lightning sooner."

13. They have already signed on to be in the cult of stupid. Hard to rid oneself of that.

Needs an open mind and knowledge.

They don't have the first and don't want the second.
