Let’s Please Keep Religion Out of Covid

I was shocked to see a post on Facebook tonight along the lines of  “If I get Covid, I’ll pass it along to all the atheists.”

That’s very Christian of you. Or whatever your religion is.

I’ve known lots of wonderful Christians, lots of wonderful Jews, lots of wonderful Muslims, and yes, lots of wonderful atheists.

I lived in Japan for 14 years where folks have an easygoing attitude. about religion. There’s a saying there that you’re born Shinto, marry Christian, and die Buddhist. (Not to mention that Buddhist sects there had religious wars. . . )

Anyway, in my on-the-ground experience, folks of all of the above persuasions have stepped up to volunteer in our Canadian communities, serving on volunteer boards, helping with neighbourhood cleanups. . .

To even imply anything other is shameful.
