I feel sorry for people like this. They believe the fake news that our president often perpetuates and they pay the ultimate price for it.

The New England Journal of Medicine published a set of recommendations for triage of COVID-19 patients this week: basically, medical ethical principles to use when deciding which people should get ventilators if there are not enough to go around.

(Bolding mine.) So I don't think Abbott and his cronies should assume there will be a ventilator ready and waiting for them if they become critically ill.

Don’t hospitals in the US have ethical guidelines already? I’m a nurse, and we have a national standard in Sweden for medical ethics and what that means for triaging patients.

I don't work in US hospitals, so I'm not an expert. My understanding is that the NEJM published these as guidance specifically for COVID-19, as most doctors currently don't have to make decisions like choosing which patient gets a ventilator when there aren't enough to go around.

It's such an awful situation...

I'm sorry (not sorry) but Pulpit and Pen is a IDIOT. He's welcome to gather all he wants with other idiots, but he is not free to go about possibly infecting other people because he's an IDIOT.

No clue where he lives, but the post office near me is open but empty, the UPS store is closed, there are very few people on the streets. The grocery stores are sparsely populated and people keep their social distance. The gov ordered the schools here closed until April 24; my office has mandatory WFH until April 30, and many churches are live streaming services from empty buildings with only the pastor/ priest and a few widely spaced out choir members/ musicians.

And I'm not sure I believe that Christians are the only ones keeping, hospitals and charities open with their 10% tithes and without them hospitals, food banks, charities, shelters and the like would all close.

Here's a winner. The commenters at The Wartburg Watch have been having fun with it:

Perhaps me being BEC, but I’m amused by the number of ads on pulpit & pen’s page. Ironic, especially on a post about “rendering unto Caesar.”

And I roll my eyes at Pulpit & Pen getting all upset at 'cancelling Sunday worship' as I don't see anything in my bible saying "thou shalt have Sunday worship in church buildings"

This is what’s been weird to me, too. The New Testament makes it clear church is the people not the building, and where does it even specify it has to be on a Sunday? The only (NT) verse I can think of that talks about church only refers to “don’t forsake fellowship.” It doesn’t spell out what that fellowship should look like or how often it should meet though. These people up in arms about online church not being legitimate are reading into verses in ways that are convenient for them but if the rest of us did the same thing in order to reach our preferred conclusion they’d call foul! The hypocrisy. It burns.

Thoughts n prayers Tony

Quote

A Louisiana pastor who has drawn criticism for holding in-person church services despite coronavirus guidelines is asking people to donate their stimulus checks to evangelists who “haven’t had an offering in a month.”

In a video posted to YouTube on Wednesday, the Rev. Tony Spell called on the public to get behind a new online challenge he is dubbing the #PastorSpellStimulusChallenge.

There are three rules to the challenge, Spell said in the video. The first rule is that it starts on Sunday. The second, he said, is for people to “donate your stimulus money.”

“Rule number three,” he continued, is to “donate it to evangelists, North American evangelists who haven’t had an offering in a month; missionaries, who haven’t had an offering in a month; music ministers, who haven’t had an offering in a month.”

All I have to say to assholes like Tony Spell is FUCK YOU!

We heard this morning from our safari guide in Tanzania.  The tourist industry has dried up.  If we were getting stimulus money (We make too much) ,  I'd rather give it to him.  Or some of it anyway.  Our kitchen needs a reno.  We are going to send him some money though.  We're not hurting, my husband has a steady job, and well, you can't take it with you.

PS: I hope Tony Spell doesn't get a dime!

CNN questions him on it here. https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2020/04/19/pastor-tony-spell-coronavirus-stimulus-check-donations-blackwell-newday-vpx.cnn  It's video only, which is always annoying. For those who dont want to play a video, the real kicker of a takeaway here, is that CNN confirmed his church is eligible for the paycheck protection act.  But Dim Tony won't take it because 'big gubmint."

Omg, that's such a great point.  Cognitive dissonance is being too kind to them, we all know greed is their motivation.

Yeah Tony went and got his ass arrested

Quote

A Louisiana pastor who defied state orders and repeatedly held large church services during the coronavirus pandemic has been charged again -- this time for allegedly assaulting a protester outside his church.

Tony Spell, pastor of Life Tabernacle Church in Baton Rouge, was taken into police custody Tuesday, according to the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office. A day earlier, the Central Police Department had issued a warrant for his arrest, accusing him of aggravated assault.

Spell was released later in the day. He told a cheering crowd of his parishioners that he's not guilty of the charges and will hold church services Tuesday night.

"I am not guilty of any charges that I have been accused of," Spell said. "I am not guilty of assault with a deadly weapon. I am not guilty of defying any orders. The only thing I am guilty of is practicing my faith, which was given to me by Jesus Christ himself."

Charlie Kirk really believes he 'destroyed' that rabbi, instead of being a sanctimonious twatwaddle...

@fraurosena,  what the hell?  That Charlie Kirk just showed he's a real asshole.  He would not let the rabbi get a word in edgewise.  Just like not all Christians believe that the Bible should be taken literally, not all Jews do either. Of course, this Charlie Kirk character probably doesn't believe that non-literalist, non-fundie Christians are actually Christians.  The one thing that Jews of all stripes are united in, though, is that Jesus is not the Messiah and that you can't be Jewish and Christian.  The beliefs are incompatible with each other.
