Conservative activist and conspiracy theorist DeAnna Lorraine, last seen on this site explaining why Hillary Clinton is “coming in for your babies,” is now all in against face masks… and vaccines.
And she defends her indefensible positions by saying it’s what God wants.
“Biblically, God does not want us wearing masks,” Lorraine added. “Masks are a symbol of hiding yourself, of doing bad deeds, inappropriate deeds, or malicious things that you need to hide from. And it is also a symbol of stripping us of our unique identity because [when] we’re wearing a mask, we’re not unique anymore, we’re all the same. And God doesn’t see us that way.”
“He also sees us as being good, and anyone who is doing good deeds should not be living and hiding in the shadows behind a mask,” she continued. “A mask is a symbol of fear. You’re living in fear. If you have a mask on, it means you actually don’t trust God. You don’t have faith. You’re living in fear instead of faith. And of course, the Marxist globalist Satanists that are pushing all this, they are trying to invert reality and pervert God and Christians, and they want to isolate us from God, isolate us from other humans, and deprive us of that faith so that we rely on the government, the media, telling us what to do and telling us whether to be fearful or not instead of God.”“I prefer to have faith,” Lorraine declared. “I will live by faith instead of by fear.”
Weird how those “Marxist globalist Satanists” want to save Christians’ lives more than she does…
Besides the obvious insanity, Lorraine’s premise doesn’t even make sense. Christians go to hospitals. Christians take medicine. Christians wear sunglasses and use suntan lotion. Christians routinely take steps to protect themselves because why wouldn’t they. But masks have become politicized because of right-wing zealots like her who think this time the protection is a tool for persecution.
This has nothing to do with faith. The question is whether conservative Christians can bring themselves to listen to scientists more than random idiots who spew conspiracy theories from the safety of their homes.
