Fascinating.

This is a good WSJ article. However, it doesn't explain why (not only) white evangelicals resist being vaccinated.

An interesting comment in the article:

"Some evangelical leaders are afraid their churches will lose members or donations if they openly support vaccination, said Curtis Chang, a former evangelical pastor who co-founded Christians and the Vaccine, a project designed to increase vaccine acceptance."

Telling.

    West Virginia Doctor Makes Her Office A Vaccine Judgement-Free Zone
    NOEL KING, NPR HOST: When people say they don't want to take it [Covid vaccine] for religious reasons, what are the religious reasons?

    DR. BROWN: You know, you hear things like, oh, I hear it's the mark of the beast. That's a big common one. You know, in biblical terms, that's heralding the end of the world. And they think that that makes them less of a Christian.

    As you know, Curt, I was very involved with the "White" "Evangelical" gang.

    This "mark of the beast" thing strikes me as something that:

    1. Few real evangelicals really think and
    2. Something that secular woke people like to say about evangelicals so they can sneer at them.

    Do you actually consider NPR to still be a reliable source of news?

    HtS,
    It's not just my opinion, NPR is rated highly for accuracy with minimal bias by multiple sources and measures.

    Regarding that particular interview which I quoted, if you doubt it, then your gripe isn't with NPR. You don't believe that doctor who practices in South Charleston, West Virginia, population 13,450.

    (Wapo) Some churches and Christian ministries with large online followings — as well as Christian influencers on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and YouTube — are making false claims that vaccines contain fetal tissue or microchips, or are construing associations between vaccine ingredients and the devil. Others talk about how coronavirus vaccines and masks contain or herald the “mark of the beast,” a reference to an apocalyptic passage from the Book of Revelation that suggests that the Antichrist will test Christians by asking them to put a mark on their bodies.

    “In the summertime, I thought, these are just fringe beliefs. But the further we got into the pandemic, I realized, these are very widely held, and I was surprised by how many Christians and churches subscribe to this,” said Emily Smith, an epidemiologist at Baylor University, a private Christian university in Waco, Tex. She runs a large Facebook page dedicated to discussing covid-19.

    Smith, who is Christian and married to a Baptist pastor, said her posts trying to disavow anti-vaccine sentiment have been met with hostile responses and threats.

    While I don't consider myself an evangelical Christian, nearly all of my friends and acquaintances are evangelicals. I have tons of existential knowledge of evangelicalism that is current and is of people from several parts of the country.

    NPR and WaPo reporting notwithstanding, based on experience, I don't buy it!

    Curt,

    It strikes me that the way you can make your point is to link to articles in which evangelicals say they're not getting vaxed is because to do so would be to accept the mark of the beast.
