When this is all over, I think there will be one demographic that will suffer far worse than others [View all]

and that is the Evangelicals and the sort of die-hard Christians. Like the types that would attend a mass service or that stupid "Woodstock" event the one pastor wants to do.

I had an interaction with a coworker the night before last, a guy who I like, great sense of humor and all, but when I told him he needs to get himself some sort of mask to wear when he is around other drivers, he told me the only mask he needed was Psalm 23; "The Lord is my shepherd"...etc.

I tried to explain to him a little bit about how this virus is transmitted, and he did listen to what I had to say, but at the end of it, his response was Psalm 23.

Now I realize there isn't likely to be any survey or research done on this specific question, but I am frankly convinced that the most severely affected groups will be Christians and other religions who are convinced their god will save them.

Note the major outbreak in Albany, GA was apparently started from folks gathering for a funeral or two.

This is a slow moving nightmare and religion is making it worse.
