Kathy Hochul, the sitting New York governor who took office after Andrew Cuomo was ousted for sexual harassment charges with multiple women, recently preached a sermon at the Christian Cultural Center in New York stating that she wears her “I’m Vaccinated” necklace all the time because she’s smart. Conversely, she states, those who aren’t getting vaccinated aren’t listening to what God wants.
Of course, she’s right–her “god” does absolutely want everyone to be vaccinated. And she does listen, very well, to her god. That is, because, her god is the state. Her god is the government. And there is no higher authority for her than the government–particularly, the one she now runs. And her god issued a decree that everyone must be vaccinated–whether or not it bears weight against your conscience to do so.
“[The vaccine] is from God to us. And we must say ‘Thank you God’…There are people out there who aren’t listening to God + what God wants…I need you to be my apostles, I need you to go out and…say: We owe this to each other.”
