Opinion 73% of Democrats are wearing masks to fight coronavirus. 59% of Republicans are.
As several states across the nation relax strict stay-at-home requirements, imposed to slow the spread of covid-19, and begin allowing more businesses to open, the question of whether the government can require people to wear masks has become explosive.
This was most apparent in Oklahoma, where on May 1, Stillwater officials were forced to revoke a mandate requiring businesses to ensure that anyone who entered was wearing a face mask. Within a few hours, store employees had been threatened with violence, including in one case with a firearm. That same day, a Flint, Mich., store security guard was shot and killed after turning away a customer whose child was not wearing a mask.
We looked into who does and does not wear masks, and why. Here's what we found....
I will add hope this is not taken as being zealous. It came to me that just as in Miller's experiments he and they lying world thought he produced life in reality its still dead. And suppose that arminianism believe dead things live so too in the medical world. After God deals immune system with poison in your body He spews its out of some oriphus in us. And its dead. If you think its alive because some one makes 1 antibody. Well... anyway i have loved ones who say they are christian yet will gladly take a vaccine with microchip. I trust and hope that in time that just as Issac was delivered at the last second so too they also. As a passing point its hard to find Christians talking about this world religion of medicine as the savior, i supposed that movie expelled tell me why.. Its interesting the devil is fearing more of the anti vaxxers than they of christians in my view. Just some extra thoughts. Enjoy your Lords Day.

Thankyou brother for just saying iron harpenth iron no a viris is dead even Biology will tell you this. Unless you talkingabout a retrovirus. Then is is different. Research exosome theory verse virus theory, Koch postulates and live. Happy to help.Just remember when you study search offen its non Christian's that have.to teach us ABC of life but with the mind of Christ we can sniff through the rubbish. Just like Richard A docos he can some Glorifing things to our God then the poison..

The religious medical gods have lied to us. a virus is the end product not the start the end product is its dead not living. I was able to witness to lost people in a shopping centre who wore masks and said that is doing more harm than good. And low and behold the msm said wearing mask COULD be doing more harm... God made exosomes trillions of them a mask wont help. Sickness comes from our environment even our words.. Harsh words = exosome.We are all appointmed to die and one cannot die unless God appointments it. Witness to the lost democratics and Republicans and christian make sure they have true faith in Christ not like a Pharisee nor lawlessness. But Love the brethren even when they seem to be an enemy. How many Corinthian members do you have in your church. Read 1cor 1-11 then read the rest in light of it. Paul knew a true profession can only lead to THE GLORIES OF THE CROSS. YES HIS CHURCH IS SICK BUT ITS STILL HIS BRIDE AND HE IS ABLE TO MAKE EACH ONE STAND OR FALL. Lying wonders are every where but if we dont know where they are or who they are how can any use the sheild of faith. None of he wicked shall understand but the wise shall undedstand.
The Quiet Christian wrote: Very profitable, Brother John. Well written. The concept of men's accountability groups has become popular on this side of the Atlantic, in part, I believe, as an attempt to deal with this issue. If we're all fine, why do we need the covering for sin that Jesus offers?
Quite so, Quiet Brother.
I've only ever come across this discipleship style in a Baptist cult in the UK, which I believe was partly modelled on Wesley's Methodism and partly on the pentecostal and charismatic phenomena in the 60's and 70's. A mish-mash in other words.
You can imagine though the intense desire to live a daily holiness of life, simply for the fact that if you didn't, you would need to confess your faults in the Meeting and perhaps experience intense embarrassment.
Maybe the fact of appearing before the judgment seat of Christ one day does not have the same effect, but having one's sins paraded in front of peers is too much to bear. So that either one is going to wear a mask again, or one is going to get embarrassed when one speaks the truth about one's daily life.
But then those who are living righteously, may be tempted to pride, thinking, "I am doing sooooooo well, look at me, folks."

Do you think so, Quiet Brother? Well, if you think it may be profitable.
I believe that several things have been lost, in regard to a church fellowship. One thing is actual fellowship, real fellowship, caring, edifying, supporting, bearing burdens type fellowship. Knowing one another and helping one another. Instead, Christians live separated, private lives, which leads to Sunday Christians.
[In 1738 John Wesley wrote a four page Rules for the Band Societies. In this he states, "The design of our meeting is, to obey that command of God, 'Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed.'" As well Wesley gives a list of suggested questions to search the soul of those in attendance, but there were five mandatory questions that had to be asked to each person in attendance:
1. What sin have you committed since our last Meeting? 2. What temptations have you met with? 3. How were you delivered? 4. What have you thought, said, or done, of which you doubt whether it be Sin or not? 5. Have you nothing you desire to keep secret?]
Brother John, you have struck a very deep & valuable topic, sir. Would you expound?
But regarding the masks from this item, advocated by the "experts" and enforced by the governance, i think this also shows the falacy of believing everything we are told if for no other reason than it will undoubtedly change. Man's falability is completely on display. A tiny virus has made a mockery of our sophisticated technological societies. Our idols of the medical industry are powerless against it.
Who reigns? Not man and not Satan. It's the Lord. And He will not share His glory with another.
Raison D'etre: "A recent Ipsos/Reuters poll found that 14% of Democrats said they were infected with COVID-19 or knew someone who was infected. For Republicans, this number was only 10%.
While not a huge difference, it‚Äôs enough to raise an eyebrow. Why might this number be higher for Democrats? And what political implications might follow? Answers to these questions are explored below.
It shouldn‚Äôt come as a surprise that more Democrats are infected than Republicans. Looking at the areas that have been hardest hit by Coronavirus, it is the coastal regions of the country (New York, California, Washington, New Jersey, etc.) ‚ÄĒ areas where Democrats outnumber Republicans. If the disease were centered in the South or the Midwest, it would be a different story.
But there‚Äôs another factor at play, and that has to do with the demography of income. Wealthy people, who tend to vote Republican, maintain smaller social networks than lower income people." (forbes.com/sites)

The goalposts do certainly move, don't they Jim? What hoops will be required to jump through next?
Jan 24, Dr Fauci: : "We don't want the American public to be worried about this because the risk is low."
Feb 29, US Surgeon General says Americans should not buy face masks because "they are not effective in preventing the general public from catching coronavirus."
What could the Surgeon General possibly know about true effectiveness? Oh well, a shift began, and at some point in the process, political considerations were added, and the science behind decision making set aside.
April 4, CDC says wear face masks.
If you were willing to deal in facts, Jim, you might detect a pattern.
I wear a homemade one in public, so as to make people feel better, and because our governor/mother Cuomo says we have to, not to "fight coronavirus" which they are not actually able to do. It is simply a visual prop necessary to maintain the notion that death is lurking behind every bush, therefore we must continue the hide-in-place orders.
