One can feel the existential anguish oozing off every page and pixel at The New York Times. That's not because the coronavirus is approaching apocalyptic proportions, with mass die-offs comparable to the year 1348, when the Black Death was at its apex. Instead, the Times is confronting a different problem: President Donald Trump's poll numbers are doing very well. His recent town hall was the most watched town hall in cable history. His daily press conferences enthrall so many people that the media are desperate to stop televising them.
Clearly, the Times had to bring out the big guns to ensure that Americans understand that not only is Trump the ultimate "Orange Man Bad," but also that his supporters must continue to be recognized as the "Deplorables" they are. To that end, the Times published one of the most vicious opinion pieces ever seen in its pages, and that's saying a lot.
Katherine Stewart has a bee in her bonnet, and that bee is her hatred for Christianity. She's written a book with the giveaway title The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism. That makes her the perfect person to write an opinion piece stating that "The Religious Right's Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response: Trump's response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies."
With that title, one would think the opinion piece has specific and detailed information about the many times that Donald Trump ignored the advice coming from Dr. Anthony Fauci or Dr. Deborah Birx. Or perhaps Stewart would write about the faith-healing sessions Trump was hosting in the Oval Office. Or maybe we'd hear that Trump, instead of closing borders and mobilizing America to provide health care providers with masks and ventilators, was, instead, broadcasting daily evangelical prayers from the White House.

Definitely picking on the wrong group....but hey, stupid is as stupid does.
When this is over, Trump needs to use their coverage against them. Point out the over-the-top predictions of millions of cases and 2.2 million deaths versus the actual, and take credit for saving all those lives.
Of course, it must have been those bad Chinese Christians that let this virus get out of hand.
No one purchases a tape video recorder any more.
Pretty soon, no one will purchase NYT excrement.
Remember Nero blaming the Christians for the burning of Rome? Today, it is an op-ed writer for The New York Times who blames evangelicals for the spread of the coronavirus in America and that would mean white evangelicals, to be sure.
Stewart has no support whatsoever that science-denying evangelicals are influencing the presidents decisions. To the contrary, wherever his gut and his optimism might lead, it appears that he is following scientific guidelines in order to save as many lives as possible.
This hatred is already spreading across America.
Just state you do not believe a man can be woman at work, or you do not believe in same sex marriage; watch what happens to your job.
I already hear people talking bad about Trump supports.
Partisan Media Shills update.
I knew they would take exception to PDJT saying Easter. . .not realizing this is how normal people think and talk. . .because normal people do not work in media.
She never presented proof that an evangelical had given him religious instruction.
Add the to the Two Minute Hate
So the New York Times is fighting against God today. Guess who is going to win that battle?
Stewart left out one horrendous detail: Snake handling. Drs. Fauci and Birx juggling rattlesnakes in the background, while POTUS Trump assured his TV audience that we’d conquer coronavirus./S
Why does ANYONE even mention the decrepit, rotting from the head down NYT, anymore?!
Meanwhile, Christ is STILL Lord over all.
The US has the most fake news media in the world!
It would make a great dissertation for some Ph.D. candidate to try to get a hold on when liberals learned to hate the way they do, who taught them to so hate, and why they are such sponges for such an education.
New York Times publishing the mad ragings of a proto-Nazi on their OpEd page. So disgusting.
Please dont forget that the NYT heavily minimized the anti-Jewish violence in Germany under Hitler. They have a record of very bad and erratic behavior when it comes to religious bigotry. They have an enemies list, in their heads if not on paper.
...Then zoom, Stewart is on to the next target, and this is where the meat gets on the bones: Trump and his Cabinet oppose abortion. How in the world can people who oppose baby-killing be sufficiently scientific to fight an epidemic disease?
If the fetus is the mothers body, why does it have unique and different DNA from the mother?
Its the pro-lifers that understand DNA and the fact that the child feels pain and reacts against it.
Have you ever had a reasoned discussion with a pro-choicer about these things? Neither have I ......
, bring it up and they run away like scared rabbits.
