As of this morning, the United States has had 590,733 deaths. Despite the success of mass vaccinations, we still had 1641 new cases yesterday - and some of those were in Aizona.
India, of course, is the new hot spot, with 65,000 new cases YESTERDAY.
Not everyone in America is concerned about the virus.
LA CROSSE, WIS. — A priest in La Crosse has been ignoring COVID-19 gathering restrictions at his masses while warning people that vaccines are useless and anyone who imposes virus-related protocols will burn in the "lowest, hottest levels" of hell.
The La Crosse Tribune reported April 25 that it had obtained a photo of Fr. James Altman presiding over a crowded Easter service at St. James the Less Catholic Church. The picture shows at least 50 people crowded into the first five rows of pews. They don't appear to be wearing masks.
The photo was a screenshot from a video of the service that shows about 170 parishioners walking up to receive communion, many of whom accepted the wafer by mouth. Few wore masks.
The Tribune also obtained a page from a St. James church bulletin calling vaccines "an experimental use of a genetic altering substance that modifies your body — your temple of the Holy Spirit." The bulletin goes on to warn readers that it's "diabolical" for anyone to shame or compel someone into getting a shot and making "you nothing other than a guinea pig."
"If the Injection actually worked, no one who actually took it would have cause for fearing anyone who did not. They would be 'safe' even if you coughed in their face. Therefore, their use of peer pressure to force you into Godless conformity is damnable," the bulletin said. "God is still the best doctor and prayer is still the best medicine," the bulletin said.
The Tribune noted that another video of a Palm Sunday Mass earlier this year shows Altman railing about COVID-19 protocols, calling them "godless" and "Nazi-esque controls."
Altman came under fire last fall for calling Democrats godless and warning they would go to hell if they don't repent.
People like Fr. Altman is one of the reasons that the Catholic church is losing membership.
