Pastor: California’s COVID Restrictions Are Like How “Hitler Used False Science”

Sep 17, 2020

Pastor John MacArthur is now comparing California Gov. Gavin Newsom to Hitler… because the governor is trying to save lives during the pandemic.

MacArthur has been in the news lately because of his constant refusals to stop holding massive indoor church services or even take the virus seriously. He’s celebrated the lack of social distancing and face masks in his congregation. A couple of weeks ago, he falsely claimed, “There is no pandemic.” And he continues to defy local regulations about indoor gatherings.

But yesterday, during an interview on The Eric Metaxas Show — Metaxas being the violent evangelical Christian who recently sucker punched a protester outside the White House — MacArthur went full Godwin.

… Hitler used false science. Hitler used false science about race as a people, about Black people and about Jewish people. He tried to basically use that false science to lock down the Reichstag in Nazi power. That is essentially what’s happening in California, and even across the country. The false science of this virus is being used again as a club by the governor of California and others across the country to affect the political change they want to see.

  • @OP – A couple of weeks ago, he falsely claimed, “There is no pandemic.” And he continues to defy local regulations about indoor gatherings.

    Some wonder why secular people regard god-delusions as dangerous, and challenge them when their faith-programmed delusional host humans, demand “respect” for their know-it-all dogmatic stupidity!

  • What saddens me about this is not that MacArthur makes such a statement, it is only what people expect from him and should come as no surprise. No, it is seeing the thousands of people who flock to his church and realize that these people have children who will end up being infected with the same virus of willful stupidity and ignorance spread by MacArthur and his ilk. That is what I find so sad.

    A cure for covid-19 will be found, but a cure for willful stupidity and ignorance? Don’t hold your breath.
