    There's always been a certain amount of tension between religion and science; mainly because people on both sides of the issue often tend to be people of faith, believing in totally different things, for totally different reasons.

    There is no conflict between true religion and true science. Truth cannot conflict with truth. Jesus Christ founded one Church, said it was to remain one, and promised that one Church the fullness of God's truth until the end of time. As a result of that divine guarantee of truth, the teaching of that one Church (which includes well over half of all Christians) never conflicts with natural truths revealed by science.

    Well, you obviously flunked Logic.  Out of the 2.2 billion Christians, that group was stupid.   And you think that means all of us are.  Sad.

      So -- in your crazy head -- the sun going around the earth, the earth sitting atop pillars, and other such crap you find in the BuyBull - that all sounds great to you, eh?

      How could a god who created the universe and all its physical laws, inspire a cult book that is SO WRONG in SO MANY WAYS?

    Because they cannot co-exist.

    Science exposes the truth and when they are wrong Scientists can admit it. Also Science discredits religion. People used to think the world is flat. Science proved that wrong. Even though the bible doesn't give the earth's age, some religious folk think it's only thousands of years old. Dating bones, rocks and artifacts have proven that wrong. They think Gods created the world and humans. We now know have other possibilities that show religion to be wrong. People are stubborn and religion is blinding. They don't like hearing they're wrong.

    Religion gave birth to science after forming the first system of 'higher education.' Science continues to use Biblical Greek Koine as the basis of its terminiology.

    'Atheistic science' is just its highly self-destructive, woefully misguided, delusional, demented Christian resource and genius 'piggybacking' autistic flash-in-the-pan twin. 

    People have the right to practice their religion as they please. They also have the right to suffer the social consequences for it and learn how to show GOD reverence and other people respect. Thanks to them, you have the right to hypocritically complain about it. 

    Your sophistry is showing.

    That's not a case of "enemy of science".

    That's a case of "enemy of good sense".

    The guy doesn't seem to be preaching anything like, "If you go to my church you can't get the virus" or "I'll pray the virus away" or anything like that.

    Some people feel attending church is worth the risk

    and that pastor is catering to those people.

    I thought it interesting that the article mentioned one protestor with a sign that reads:

    - God don't like stupid.

    Well, science is the accidental enemy of religion. Science destroys the religious, cult crap you get out of the more ancient cult books - crap that is proven impossible, like:

    stars set in a firmament, a flat earth, the sun going around the earth, the earth sitting atop pillars, and other such crap you find in the BuyBull -- which proves the BuyBull is false, which then pisses off believers and makes them science-haters..

    Because science has the goal of exposing truth at any cost.

    Religion has as it's mission, to bury the truth at all costs.

    That's why.
