Some good news to report from the Undiapered Underground. Live – and let live is beginning to reassert itself in pockets around the country.
A sign of this being the sign on the door of a local business – which I will not name because of the possibility that an outraged Sickness Psychotic might make it their business to engage in none-of-their-business.
The sign reads: Everyone Welcome.
And, below the bold-faced type: If you do not want to wear a mask you are still WELCOME HERE. Due to HIPAA and the Fourth Amendment, we cannot ask why you are not wearing masks.
Can you conceive of it? No Papal Bull affixed to the door requiring the effacing of the face for the sake of the Faith, the store not being a church as well as a place that people are free to not enter, if the sight of apostasy troubles them.
There being other stores that cater to the Faithful, which they are also free to enter.
Is this not how it ought to be in a country allegedly free and without a state church that everyone must pay homage to?
People who choose to belong to any given faith have the right to wear the vestments of their faith, such as orthodox Jews who wear a yarmulke. Most people – who aren’t vicious people – have no problem with an orthodox Jew wearing his yarmulke in public, in stores and so on. It is a vestment of their faith and no one else’s business – unless the observant individual stops respecting live – and let live – by insisting they observe his faith, by wearing the yarmulke, too.
They generally do not so insist – except within their holy places, which is fine because these are their holy places. It is disrespectful in that case to enter and not wear what is expected – since you chose to enter. But no one is forcing you to enter.
Stores are not holy places.
Outdoors is everyone’s church.
No one should be coerced or pressured or gaslit to pretend they believe in something they do not believe in – such as pretending to be sick perpetually because possibly in spite of their being actually healthy – outside the boundaries of holy places, such as churches and synagogues and so on.
Join if you like and if not, go in peace.
Imagine the outrage – rightly so – if apostates forced their way into a church or synagogue and hectored the faithful within to take off their yarmulke and pour the sacramental wine down the drain.
There should be equal outrage about the Faithful – those who believe in the power of the Holy Rag to prevent people who aren’t sick from transmitting sickness – doing exactly that to those who do not share their faith outside their Holy Places.
If you own a store and believe in the power of the Holy Rag, it is your right to wear one and even to insist that those who enter your store do, as well – with the proviso that you are not being coerced to so require by people who do not own your business – i.e., government gesundheitsfuhrers and the busybodies who attend them like lampreys on a shark – and thus have no right to tell you your business.
If you own a store – like this store – and are not a believer, or believe in the right of your customers to make their own decisions as regards their faith – then you (and they) have just as much right to not wear the Holy Rag, without being pressured either way.
Live – and let live. As opposed to live as everyone is ordered to live by the Faithful.
Which of the two options seems preferable to you? Shouldn’t it be preferable even to the Faithful as well? No one is abridging their freedom to practice their Faith by not sharing their Faith. If the Rag has power, then its power protects them, amen – and that should be enough.
The threat arises – to all – when orthodoxy is insisted upon.
The Faithful, for example, are free to wear their Holy Rag – and free to not wear goggles and gloves. But when orthodoxy is omnipresent – and the Faith enforced – it is inevitable more will be expected of everyone, including the Faithful.
Who may not like it much – as Baptists don’t like the idea of being made to perform the rituals of Anglicans or Catholics and vice-versa.
Imagine what life would be life if any religion became mandatory. This should cause any thinking person to question the wisdom of making this religion mandatory. Popes, Mullahs and Grand Inquisitors tend to get intolerant of anything less than zealous adherence to the One True Faith. As defined and decreed by them.
There’s more – and better:
There are many cures for coronavirus that are being ignored because there is no money in them. Your immune system is 99.9 percent effective against the virus . . .
PLEASE DO A FACT CHECK ON WHAT YOU HEAR!
This is the cure for what ails us. And them, the weaponized hypochondriacs of the Sickness Cult.
Tolerance of difference. Come – or go – without being forced to do either.
Live – and let live.
That’s a faith everyone can subscribe to – without anyone infringing on anyone else’s right to believe and practice their faith.
