David French: Get the Vaccine or You’re a Bad Christian

Techno Fog

I’m going to afford David French the grace he refuses to give others: I won’t criticize his faith based on his opinions on the COVID vaccines. I will, however, question his judgment.

The other day, French considered white Evangelical reluctance to take the COVID vaccine. He did so after the Washington Post and Religion News Service piled-on white Evangelicals for their skepticism, accusing them of partisanship and not trusting science.

Some of the accusations were low blows. Historian John Fea was quoted by Religion News as saying, “There’s a long history of anti-science within American evangelicalism. It goes back to the Scopes trial and evolution in the 1920s.” Of course, vaccine hesitancy isn’t anti-science (just as doubts about evolution isn’t anti-science), but some relish the opportunity to make accusations against Christians.

Needing to deliver a fresh perspective, French took those conclusions one step further, saying Evangelical vaccine hesitancy is a “spiritual problem.

That is a disgusting and dangerous statement by French, a Christian with a huge platform. What is it but a spiritual guilt-trip? His message: get the vaccine or you’re a bad Christian.

Broad commands to vaccinate miss the particulars, of course. What of those Christians hesitant to get a vaccine because of the side effects?

French doesn’t have an answer – he actually fails discuss side effects.  more

  1. It is still considered an experimental vaccine by the FDA you effn idiot.

    And I am not putting myself in harms way for a virus that 99.7% of people survive.

    I haven’t gotten a flu shot in over 25 years because every time I did previously, it was the most sick I had ever been in my life. And I haven’t had the flu either.

    I’ll pass, and you can go eff yourself.

  2. The real problem is those that lecture me on science have no idea the science themselves. They are parroting talking points.

    I know the science and that’s why I’m not taking an EXPERIMENTAL vaccine to be a walking GMO project with cell lines derived from dead babies. I also know the science well enough to know there is real risk for a cytokine storm later down the line. I also know that my own immune system has an almost 100% chance of fending off the china virus especially if I take supplements to ensure no deficiencies. Knowing what I know there is no way in hell I would ever even think about altering my DNA. I’d rather take my chances with infection to build immunity the way God intended. In fact, I welcome infection to get it over with, if I haven’t already been infected. So piss off and cast your judgement inward instead, I will allow only myself and God himself to judge me, thank you.

  3. David French advocating FOR something is one of the best possible arguments AGAINST it.

  4. Also, I haven’t tried the mezcal recipe yet. But I think I have kept my BAC high enough throughout this joke of a pandemic that I have been immune.

    Just a thought for those that don’t want to get stuck.

  5. Christians also believe the good Lord knows, & holds, the moment of your death. To pretend that getting the shot will change that is your delusional thinking.

  6. I have no idea who he is. But this Christian is not taking the experimental biological weapon. I believe that Abba supports my decision to not change the DNA and immune system that he gave me. And yes, I do believe it is laying the ground work for the beast system. I will not take it. EVER.

  7. Well, a questioning of his Christian faith is in order.

    He’s double minded. Someone not to be trusted according to God’s Word;

    James 1:5-8, The Holy Bible.
    “5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

    6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

    8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

    Here are French’s thoughts on critical race theory. He thinks it’s useful. Nevermind it’s Marxist origins. Not very Christian.
    From a long article – “interesting” read. https://frenchpress.thedispatch.com/p/on-the-use-and-abuse-of-critical

    “…In that construct, critical race theory can be an analytical tool (one of many) that can help us understand persistent inequality and injustice in the United States. To the extent, however, that it presents itself as a totalizing ideology—one that explains American history in full and prescribes an illiberal antidote to American injustice—it falters and ultimately fails. Moreover, as a totalizing ideology, it contradicts core scriptural truths….”

    Oh, and by the way he’s a staunch Never Trumper;

    BTW, Don’t get on my case about supporting Trump is a requirement of Christianity. I know that’s not true. Just providing a perspective on Mr. French’s political beliefs in his own words.

  8. I am most insulted when being assaulted by so-called ‘experts’ that know even less than myself about ‘scientific’ bullshit.

  9. “And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.”
    Exodus 23:25

    “Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.”
    Jeremiah 17:14

    “14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

    15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”

    16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
    James 5:14-16

    …hmm, all Christian, nothing about vaccines.

    …David FAIL.

  10. Science, I trust.
    Experimental vaccine pushers, not-so-much.

  11. God gave us immune systems which work great most of the time.
    But it’s nothing to do with being Christian.
    Unless Christians mostly think.
    A virus with a 99.8% survival rate if you get it requires no vaccine.

  12. There is simply no mathematical correlation between Christianity and Vaccination.

    It’s a false argument. The more important question, for those who GAF about this French fellow, is: Why is he pushing this false narrative?

    Cui bono?

    izlamo delenda est …

  13. “Opinions are like….”
    OTOH, it probably wouldn’t be hard to find an “evangelical” who suggests it’s the mark of the beast…

  14. Any Christian who actually believes in God is considered to be a bad Christian according to the left. But the good Christians are the social gospel type of church believers i.e., Presbyterians, Methodists, Jesuits, members of the Congregational churches, Anglicans etc. who are deeply invested in promoting the false gospel of social justice. And that the govt. should be the ones who provide for our every need and want and certainly not God nor Christian charity. The left are the real Pharisees who could care less about the plight of the poor and oppressed except to exploit them for their political and social gain. I hate everything about the left.

  15. I have the ultimate contempt for large Mega churches who promote the prosperity gospel like Joel Osteen who are in it to only enrich themselves at the expense of their gullible followers. It’s nothing but Scamway with a so called Christian perverted gospel.

  16. “Why are so many white Evangelicals reluctant to consider the health of their community?”
    That’s all you need to know about that fake Christian.
    A golden rule, anyone who tells you that you are a bad Christian for not falling in line and being a sheep to another human is not a Christian himself or herself, and they are projecting their problems on you.

    Leave faith out of this. It has has nothing to do with a choice of what you allow into your body. That person (I admit I never heard of him before, and don’t care) should focus on real issues Christians are facing, if he is truly a Christian. Christians in the middle east are facing extinction, are persecuted in most parts of the world, and here in America are being silenced, chased out of their churches, forced even to do stuff in their homes they disagree with, forced to serve those their conscious and faith disagrees with.
    Go help feed the hungry, attend to the sock and the poor and spare us the lecture over stuff you know zero about, and stop being a hypocrite.

  17. I’m not anti-vax, I’m anti-stupid.
    Vaccines do injure and kill x amount of people every year.
    I believe that there is a way to develop a test so that at the very least we have an idea of what negative health effects a vaccine might cause a person before blindly and willy-nilly injecting them with a death sentence.
    Libs constantly sell the “if it saves just one life” lie to justify anything and everything, so why isn’t that mantra being applied with vaccines.
    Yes vaccines are good and work; I’m all for an individuals decision to accept or reject at their LIBERTY.
    Until we can do vaccines smartly I refuse to receive them, not because I’m scared or paranoid but because I don’t want to support a government subsidized industry that doesn’t care about killing people for profit.

  18. Did Jesus go long with “conventional wisdom”?
    I recall he rebuked them & bodily threw them out of the temple grounds.
