Evangelicals Lose Their Minds After Franklin Graham Says Jesus Would Have Taken the Vaccine
Millions of Americans have decided to protect themselves and others by getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Many more, though, especially supporters of Donald Trump, have decided against getting inoculated. And Trump has shown little to no interest in telling his followers that they should do so.
So convincing right-wingers to get the vaccine has fallen on others. Top Evangelical leader Franklin Graham tried to convince his followers to get vaccinated. Graham’s plea, though, created an angry reaction among his followers.
The Evangelical leader wrote on his Facebook page, “I have been asked my opinion about the vaccine by the media and others. I have even been asked if Jesus were physically walking on earth now, would He be an advocate for vaccines. My answer was that based on the parable of the Good Samaritan in the Bible, I would have to say—yes, I think Jesus Christ would advocate for people using vaccines and medicines to treat suffering and save lives. So, my own personal opinion is that from what we know, a vaccine can help save lives and prevent suffering.”
Some followers praised the post, most were incredibly angered by it. Jennifer Matthews responded, “This vaccine has aborted Baby cells in it; Jesus would NOT advocate for anything such as that!”
A user named Luticia Brooks replied, “The faux vaccine doesn’t prevent ANYONE from contracting or spreading the virus! People are still advised to wear 2 masks and social distance! What a joke! How do you know what Jesus would do in this situation? Jesus was wise and would see this farce for what it is; brainwashing the weaklings of the world!”
