Prai$e the Lord & Pa$$ the Collection Plate$?

In our above clip, The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian expose greed driven holy rollers, who care more about their bank savings accounts than saving souls / saving humanity, itself. Yes indeed, the survival of our entire global community has been imperiled by the Coronavirus Pandemic. And THAT doth make church attendance dicey… a crapshoot.

And on this Palm Sunday, I, too, would like to weigh in, thusly…

Every ethical, enlightened religious leader, worldwide (purely in the interest of public health), has opted to cancel all church services until it’ll be safe, once more, to go outside (in this case inside). To do otherwise would be tantamount to clergymen meting out death sentences… not only to their parishioners, themselves, but, potentially, to everyone they’d come into contact with subsequently.

Under such dire circumstance, the spreading of this contagion might go unchecked until the very last human being has dropped dead.

If that grim scenario doesn’t scare the bejesus out of the devout… what, pray tell, will?’

OK, perhaps giving it another try might be helpful?

If even a handful of worshipers insist on public masses, then… to quote songwriter P. F. Sloan… “there’ll be no one to save with the world in a grave.”

Or, how about making this bumper sticker length wisdom the phrase that pays?

Freedom of Religion “issues” no one a License to Kill!

If your pastor is flat-out defying the federal, state and local authorities’ recommendations to avoid congregating in large groups, your one and only recourse is to DEFY HIM!

Need anyone even remind that God is omnipresent?

To stay safe, healthy and alive, the advice to follow… uh… religiously… is [1] stay at home, [2] serve up some bread and wine, [3] “park it” in a comfy chair and [4] crack open / curl up with a good book… uh… The Good Book?

 

 

My best wishes that you stay well! If you are ailing, you have my hopes and prayers for a full, speedy recovery. Wherever / whenever we discover a leadership vacuum, it’ll be incumbent on us to do everything we can to save humanity. Please stay safe by continuing to heed the following common sense, disease fighting advice…

[1] Practice good hygiene (scrub hands often at least 20 seconds), [2] Cover coughs and sneezes, [3] Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, [4] observe social distancing protocols (remain at least 2 meters / 6 feet apart [5] avoid large crowds or (ideally) just stay at home and [6] if ill, self-quarantine.

 

 

 

 

 

I can’t post my originally planned Vid of the Day…

Why not? While I can handle the distressing, frank, Coronavirus commentary, courtesy of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, not everyone else will be able to say the same.

But, what I can do is moderate / CliffsNotes™ his content, thusly…

In defiance of all the legitimate, medical professionals’ best advice, by early April, the impatient, impetuous Donald J. Trump intends to reopen America / prematurely usher in business-as-usual. That’s his politically motivated, reckless, insane timeline designed to celebrate his NON-victory over the Coronavirus, which, at present, keeps raging on and on. Most assuredly, this is a pandemic, that will not… REPEAT… WILL NOT… by any stretch of the imagination… be contained / conquered by then.

To that end… THE END… Trump, the Grim Reaper’s protégé, wants the spectacle of packed to the rafters churches on April 12th… Easter Sunday… which means there’ll be dead bodies stacked all the way up to Heaven before THE END of the not so merry, merry month of May.

Worse yet is the power of suggestion. There are oodles of Trump supporters who WILL follow their leader… off the cliff… when they DO show up for Easter mass. Expect SRO, non-socially distanced throngs numbered in the thousands.

To wrap up this post, I’ll cut and paste a quote from MSNBC’s YouTube Channel (the very words that didn’t set up our original Vid of the Day…

“Lawrence O’Donnell explains why governors and doctors are in charge of combating the coronavirus pandemic and not listening to Donald Trump’s timeline for opening businesses again in the United States.”

Folks, it’s that commendable, flat out, gubernatorial defiance, that can and will rescue humanity from Trumpian insanity. Beyond that…

The U.S. Constitution does include the 25th Amendment, which formally outlines the transition of power if the President is unable or unfit to serve. Section IV, in particular, allows the Vice President and a majority of the Cabinet to remove the President from office.

The remaining key question…

Who amongst Trumps toadies will finally grow a pair and do his Constitutional and moral duty to remove the fake prez before he sends millions of us to an early grave?
