Democrat Governor Says God Wants You to Get Vaccinated and I've Got Thoughts

The push to get every American vaccinated from COVID-19, regardless of whether there’s an actual need to do so in every case, continues apace. On that front, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, who replaced the disgraced Andrew Cuomo following his resignation, wants you to know that God himself has strong feelings on the vaccine.

According to Hochul, Christians who aren’t vaccinated are disobeying the divine will of God.

Theocracy is good again, folks. Get a load of this creepy mix of church and state.

“Yes, I know you’re vaccinated, you’re the smart ones, but you know, there are people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants,” Hochul said at a Christian Cultural Center service. “You know, this, you know who they are.”

“I need you to be my apostles, I need you to go out and talk about it and say, we owe this to each other,” the Democrat continued. “We love each other. Jesus taught us to love one another. And how do you show that love, but to care about each other enough to say, please get vaccinated because I love you. I want you to live.”

COVID-19 is a religion and vaccines and masks are its holy sacraments. Go forth and spread the good news of Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson. All praise to the glorious coronavirus hysteria, forever and ever, amen.

Notice the lack of important caveats whenever any Democrat talks about vaccination. What about all the Christians who have had COVID and are naturally immune, protected at a higher level per studies than just having the vaccine? Does God also desire they get jabbed for no scientific reason whatsoever? Is the vaccine just a rite of passage for adults into salvation now?

All of this is so dumb, but it’s made dumber by the fact that Hochul’s newfound religious appreciation doesn’t extend to anything else. Being a liberal Democrat, she’s supportive of abortion until birth (and maybe shortly afterward if she were ever truly pushed on the issue). How does she think God feels about that? I’m pretty sure he’s against frying children in the womb and then sucking them out with a vacuum. Yet, Hochul doesn’t seem to care about God’s will in that case. It’s all very convenient, and it’s a pattern on the left where they embrace religion only when it suits them, mocking it in other instances.

I could offer more examples of why Hochul’s proclamation is wholly inconsistent with her party’s platform, but I think you get the point. These people see God as a prop. He’s only relevant when they feel can use him to push their political agenda. Otherwise, God and religion are something to be stuffed in a box, never to influence public policy. No one is buying what Hochul is selling, and it’s insulting that she thinks she can speak for God at all, much less regarding the COVID vaccines.
