Nothing like threats of violence coming from the pulpit, from a man who claims to be proselytizing the same religion as the Prince of Peace. “Pastor” Jackson Lahmeyer has done exactly that. Seems the good Christian has taken umbrage to a rumor of a “national lockdown,” first we’ve heard of it, which he describes as a time period where people would be forced to wear masks and presumably stay home unless absolutely necessary. Lahmeyer isn’t having any of that COVID-19 restriction nonsense. No Sir, you try to shut down his weekly sermon he will simply have a nightly sermon, until the last man, woman or child in his flock keels over dead, we assume.

What’s that you say? Isn’t “thou shalt not kill” one of the ten commandments? We guess that somebody rewrote the Republican bible. Maybe go ask Mike Pence?
Here’s what Republican Jesus used to teach. Ask Mike if this is current.
Lucifer was supposedly cast out from Heaven because he was telling the other angels that they could live free from the law of God. Lahmeyer is now telling his flock that they can live free from the CDC, which technically, yes they can. If they don’t want to get vaccinated they can live — or die — with the consequences. I guess that is an exercise of free will. A rather stupid one, but don’t let anybody force a life preserving cure on you when you can retain the choice of a painful death. No, you stand up for your rights like Lahmeyer is telling you to do.
Just what we need in the Senate, this guy and a hole in the head.
You thought David Koresh and his Branch Davidians were bonkers. Now you’ve got Lahmeyer and his Branch Covidians. Or Covidiots, more appropriately.
Let’s see where we are by the end of the year and if the Delta variant has wreaked havoc in the south. I don’t wish harm on these people but if they are so willfully stupid as to ignore a plague and refuse to get vaccinated, in the face of people who used to believe like them testifying from their death beds that they were wrong, then maybe this is evolutions’ way of thinning out the population. The smart shall inherit the earth because the idiots decided to commit suicide over “principles” associated with a fabric rectangle and a couple of injections. Fine. Maybe that’s how it will go down.
