Well sure, but how's that going to make Fauci rich, and keep him on the airwaves?

Why would you be ok with this? Translate the important part into English:
If a male identifies as a female, the school may not require him to use male-designated restroom facilities. To do so would be inconsistent with his illness, er, gender identity. Where then would he be allowed to go? Smell the coffee, Jim?

Kings are such a weird lot. Henry Number 8 thinks the dead guy Becket was cool, then Henry changes and because Henry changes, he thinks the still dead guy Becket became a traitor. So who is the real arrogant fool?
Adriel wrote: Hey Mike; Question for you. You appear to be totally convinced about the annual flu epidemic and its mortality rates. But when it comes to coronavirus you seem to think that it is a figment of the political imaginations? Why is it you are convinced of non-existence or less-existence of corona?
Nothing I have said says that. Of course it‚Äôs real. Coronaviruses have been around forever. One of them can give you Covid-19. Others can give you the common cold. The difference between this ‚Äúnovel‚ÄĚ version and influenza is in the handling of them. It should be plain enough. When churches, small businesses, beaches and gyms are closed, but abortion clinics, liquor stores, casinos, and big box stores are open, then yes it is done for political, not medical reasons.
no panic, no lockdown, no "social distancing," no overwhelmed medical systems, no politically motivated fear mongering. Somehow we survived.
Questions: Of Covid deaths, how many due to Covid, and how many are Covid-related? (I'm sure there are others besides myself who know of incidents where totally non Covid connected deaths were officially labeled Covid)
Why are this seasons cases and deaths being added to last seasons? That isn't done with other viruses. They start over in the fall. Imagine what the numbers would be if every flu case was added to previous numbers.
Why do we never hear the recovery numbers?
The case count increases daily. Why are the number of new cases being added to cases that have recovered? Is anyone here who has had the flu in the past still considered a flu case today? Rhetorical questions. The only way to make the numbers more scary is to keep adding them to previous numbers, while ignoring the vast majority who recover, and are no longer rightly considered cases.

Their permission from the reprobate secular courts means that ‚Äėaltar‚Äô. Worship can be maintained. Sadly these religious organisations don‚Äôt know that according to GOD and His Son Jesus, the last altar was the cross used 2000 years ago. But that‚Äôs alright with this fallen world.

Would it be better for God‚Äôs people freely meeting if the court had decided otherwise? Big picture time, Adriel
If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, and hangs out with ducks, odds are it‚Äôs a duck. People might say the duck isn‚Äôt representative of real ducks, but when those real ducks say little or nothing about that which is said to be un-ducklike behavior of the duck, they are in some fashion in agreement with it.
I wonder if there would be fewer covid cases if Psalms were sung rather than hymns? I would suggest it is less important to know the answer when we haven‚Äôt figured out that there is no evidence that singing spreads disease more than talking or breathing. Opinions, even opinions of alleged experts, are not evidence.

For the sake of accuracy, Frum reference to the pandemic causing the economic problems is bogus. It was, and is the political response to it that solely is responsible.
