Dismal theology-related applause of the day

I pointed yesterday to a story that explains why John MacArthur has decided to ignore a shutdown order:

“Government officials have no right to interfere in ecclesiastical matters in a way that undermines or disregards the God-given authority of pastors and elders,” MacArthur wrote.

Services went forward yesterday as promised, and at least one attendee was grateful that MacArthur didn’t surrender his “God-given authority”:

Stop and think about that for a moment: MacArthur is being applauded for breaking the law in a way that endangers their lives. Granted, they have the right to expose themselves to the risk of Covid-19 if that’s what they wish to do — but they have no right whatever to make such a decision on behalf of their children, your children, their co-workers, your parents, the pizza delivery kid or the drive-through attendee at the dry cleaner or McDonald’s.

Let’s be straight about this: those people have sewage where they ought to have brains and character, and MacArthur (like The Donald) is running a cult of personality.

At least one tweet got it right:

There is no defense against these morons but to put them out of your life and let natural selection have them. None.
