New York Times Blames Christians for U.S. Coronavirus Outbreak

The New York Times recently blasted Evangelical Christians in an article titled: “The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals.” The article was quickly retitled: “The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science Is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response.” The author, Katherine Stewart, insists that science-denying Evangelical Christians have convinced President Donald Trump and other leaders to ignore hard scientific evidence in responding to Coronavirus. Does Stewart have a case that “science denialism” is “crippling our Coronavirus response, or is the New York Times publishing more conspiracy-laden fake news? Can a recent poll on social distancing shed some light here? David Wood (Acts 17 Apologetics) discusses the issue.
