Monday, May 04, 2020

Republican Ohio State Rep. Nino Vitale, who has been a vociferous critic of Republican Gov. Mike DeWine's stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, believes wearing a mask to slow the spread of the disease would violate his "Judeo-Christian Principles."

I'll send flowers.

Or at least one.

Now, I'm not implying that all religious folks are idiots, but this one definitely is.

So shouldn't Vitale be growing a big beard? Are Christian doctors and nurses who wear masks not good Christians?

He should be struck by lightning for using God as a pathetic excuse.

Can we nail him to a cross?

Seems like he'd want that.

Yet again, how are we wrong to sneer at the idiots who elected this tool?

" in God's image and likeness..." Why would God want to look like Nino V., or me for that matter? I prefer that if/when I show up at the Pearly Gates that if I get a glimpse that God look like Elvis in his comeback special, Muhammad Ali at 22, Michelle Obama, The Dalai Lama, Ravi Shankar, Mother Teresa or Cary Grant. Please, anyone but Nino V...

This, uh, logic, why does it stop with masks?

He needs to be buck naked if he's gonna play this game.

What an attention wh@re.

Jesus said no taking stupid risks.

What he's doing is unChristian.

Don't laugh at Mr. Vitali. He's not the craziest one around.

I know a very serious born-again Christian lady who believes that when Jesus returns, it's going to be right in her driveway. She can hardly wait.

He must've missed The Parable of the Talents. Accordingly, God will curse his wanton stupidity and damn him to hell.

Did anyone even question which party this idiot belongs to?

Seriously, did the thought even cross your mind that he might be Democrat?

Me neither.

Republicans really are this stupid.

Hell's bells, It is his own risk. I figured y'all would be cheering him on. Maybe he will infect his family and prevent another generation of conservatives fouling up your Utopian dreams. Something needs to be done, lefties generally don't have near as many children.

That's where you are wrong. Since most people aren't weaning surgical or N95 masks, my wearing a mask protects you. Your wearing a mask protects me.

You're correct, of course, but I wouldn't bother. No one could at this point make a good-faith claim to be unaware of this. Doc is only pretending to have a point.

There once was a time when all people believed in God and the church ruled. This time was called the Dark Ages.

No, it's really not.

You're thinking of seatbelts or something.
Which you don't seem to consider Communist.
Maybe you forgot how Communist seatbelts are.

News flash for this guy: if God does exist, you won't even begin to understand WTF you are looking at.

Wear the damn mask.

"Hell's bells, It is his own risk."

The Real Reason to Wear a Mask

Much of the confusion around masks stems from the conflation of two very different uses.

Masks can be worn to protect the wearer from getting infected or masks can be worn to protect others from being infected by the wearer. Protecting the wearer is difficult: It requires medical-grade respirator masks, a proper fit, and careful putting on and taking off. But masks can also be worn to prevent transmission to others, and this is their most important use for society. If we lower the likelihood of one person's infecting another, the impact is exponential, so even a small reduction in those odds results in a huge decrease in deaths. Luckily, blocking transmission outward at the source is much easier. It can be accomplished with something as simple as a cloth mask.

How does he know his God doesn't wear a mask?

Has he met his God?

God also doesn't get a paycheck or a vote.

Time to give those up too.

Does anything say "deeply religious person" more than invoking your God's name to justify a blatant political gesture?

Or is the word I'm looking for hypocrite?
