Vaccines and religious rights?

Right-wing pastor Robert Jeffress came to the Sofa’s attention in the past due to his fanboy behaviour around Donald Trump, and what can be described as a wrong opinion around climate change, but Sofa has found himself being thankful for Robert Jeffress clearly coming out against religious exemptions for taking a covid vaccine.

Yes religious, not medical, but people are trying to say that taking a vaccine that helps protect against a harsher illness, and decreases the chance of passing that illness onto another is against their religious rights.

“There is no credible religious argument against the vaccines,” Jeffress told The Associated Press for a report last Friday.

Jeffress, a prominent evangelical supporter of former President Donald Trump, who has been fully vaccinated since early March, said he and his staff “are neither offering nor encouraging members to seek religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates.”

Christian Post

Which.

Has attracted some anger from those from what I guess would be called the political and religious right.

“We all know the chemicals, the different things that are in there that are designed to literally take life away from people.”

That would be the worst vaccine ever right?

Alternative Christmas Talks

It’s Christmas time, and let’s face it. Online or not online there are many many sermons out there to be be given. And in some cases, there are Christmas sermons still to be written. If you are looking for Christmas sermon inspiration, here are our list of Alternative Christmas Talks that SOMEONE needs to give…

  1. Mary, Joseph and Family Bubbles.
  2. The Shepherds and Social Distancing.
  3. The Angels. Why they sang facing away form each other.
  4. Worship without singing: The Stable Boy.
  5. Safer outside. The nativity as a Covid safe model.
  6. Masks: Lets embrace wearing real ones in church.
  7. Are we socially distanced from Jesus?
  8. Trust: King Herod, Boris, and Jesus.
  9. Would Angels wear masks?
  10. Don’t be afraid. I bring good news: Vaccines, hope, Jesus.

Any more ideas?

The Christian T Shirt of The Week

Remember back in the day, DC Talk kinda tried to claim the term “Jesus Freak”? I wonder if the same sort of thought process took place here?

Welcome to the Jesus Christ Super Spreader T Shirt

Made after the guy that is hosting massive outdoor worship events in America was called a Super Spreader by Rolling Stone Magazine. Events that look a bit like this…

Sofa is not sure if being a super spreader is something to be proud of.

And yes. Perhaps he is trying to say he is “spreading the name of Jesus”? Now is not the time to try and claim that term.

Plus. Lets face it. There is a risk that events like this could well spread covid, and that, is probably not something to be proud of.

Maybe, being an idiot isn’t something to be proud of?
