With so many places either requiring that everyone who enters wear the Holy Rag or at least pressuring them to wear it, you’d think the wearers of the rag would be content to leave the handful of places that don’t require it or enforce it alone.
But because they are religious fanatics they cannot abide apostasy anywhere.
Try not wearing a Burqa at Mecca – the difference being everywhere is Mecca now.
I observed one of the Faithful hector the woman behind the counter at my gym today. She was wearing the Holy Rag desultorily – as all employees are forced to do – but that was not good enough for the double-Diapered man at the counter, who turgidly pointed out to her all the apostates working out without showing faith.
“But there is a pandemic and these people should be wearing masks all the time!” His eyes bulged above his bandana – which suffices as the religious token it is.
The woman tried to explain that people are free to choose and that anyway the gym staff isn’t empowered to determine a member’s health status or medical condition, which entitles them under the law to not wear the Holy Rag.
This did not satisfy the Jehovah’s Witness of Sickness – who probably phoned in a “tip” about the gym.
I know the owner of the gym and she has told me that several of these Holy Rollers have done just that. She is doing her best to not become a Diaper Priestess but faces the prospect of what amounts almost literally to the prospect of conversion by the sword – especially now that Pope Fauci XVII is guaranteed a lifetime appointment by the side of the putative head of the Sickness Cult – courtesy of CNN and Dominion – for as long as he may live.
Come a week or so from now, once formerly enthroned, these people will do exactly as Henry VIII did to the Catholic Church, except to us. It’s what they voted for, after all.
If they weren’t fanatics, there wouldn’t be a war in the making. The Sickness Witness at my gym could go literally 2 miles down the street to another gym where Holiness prevails. Why can’t there be different churches?
Or at least, no demand that everyone must pray. And to the same god?
Whatever happened to religious freedom in this country? It went the way of freedom of speech and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. Now there is only One True Faith – and all must genuflect.
The faith is so strong it hardly needs to be enforced – though enforcement is coming, because any show of heresy cannot be tolerated as it might cause heresy to spread. New faiths are like this, which is part of their attraction. They aren’t milquetoast social rituals but righteous causes and so many haven’t felt passion in so long that this diseased variant of the healthy thing has infected their hearts and sickened their minds.
Jim Jones didn’t allow backtalk in the line for the Kool-Aid, either.
But that doesn’t mean we should just stand in line and await our turn to have a drink.
I’ve urged my friend the gm owner to simply tell these Holy Rollers that perhaps this gym isn’t the gym for them. That they might find the one down the road more to their liking – and there’s the door, which you’re just as free to use as an exit as an entrance.
It works the same as telling a Witness no thanks – and if he persists – to get the hell off your property.
Business owners need to remind themselves of this. And act accordingly.
