Who would have thought chanting towards a non-existent sky fairy would not protect them?

#1 - especially when the chanter was using 300 year old rituals.

And what's with Pence talking about being "6 days into a 15 day effort", like there's a date on the calendar where if we can just make it there alive, we're home free as a country?

Trump is an atheist and Pence a heretic at best.

If you want to see Christianity combating the coronavirus at the highest levels look at Francis Collins and the National Institute of Health.

I guess you could call it a staff infection.

Serious question here, and maybe this isn't the best thread for it, but your comment prompted me. Do you, or does anybody else here on the DR, know of some good online resources to help people who are gripped with fear and anxiety about this pandemic? These resources can be of a secular or spiritual nature. I'm writing an article for a large company in the healthcare industry, and I want to play some small role in softening the impact of this.

I'm afraid we're going to see a major downward spiral of our nation's mental health as this beast continues to grow, and I'd like to offer solace to people who are now confined to their homes and may be feeling lost and frightened. Frankly I feel that way myself at times, but I'm aiming this at other Americans who are starting to lose touch.

Because of the unique nature of this crisis, I'm looking for something that is specific to disease outbreaks if possible, or maybe other crises that grow worse over an extended period of time. The CDC actually has a page on its website that's pretty good in this regard, but I could always use more.

I was going to suggest an exercise regiment but snoofy picked some lovely passages.....I still recommend an exercise regiment thats high on cardio even if that means running laps in the back yard or mail ordering a treadmill.
