* 95 Theses to Jeffco: On today's program Bob Enyart reads a draft of DBC's 95 Theses to the Jefferson County Health Department. [Update: Click to see the high resolution final Feb. 28, 2021 version (or see them in plain text, below, or for printing, in even higher res here). These 95 Theses were (liquid) nailed to the (glass) doors of Denver Bible Church on this date.]
51. ¶ Whereas mask-mandating control-freak bureaucrats further harm the hearing impaired by covering up people's mouths making it all that much more difficult for the elderly and many others to understand those around them (and in this sense, mask mandates have made all of us hearing impaired), and
52. ¶ Whereas for healthy development newborns have a deep psychological need to connect with faces, not only of parents and other relatives but even passers-by, and
53. ¶ Whereas widespread mask wearing also harms babies by ignoring the common sense paper published in the Proceedings of the Nat'l Academy of Sciences showing that babies intently watch people's lips as they are learning how to speak (and that not being able to watch lips will disproportionately hinder children in bilingual environments), and
54. ¶ Whereas Cambridge University's peer-reviewed journal Disaster Medicine and Public Health published that Congress acted upon March 11, 2020 testimony by the fauci that presented for the covid "a 10-fold increased mortality overestimation...", and
55. ¶ Whereas God through Moses in Leviticus 3500 years ago gave practical diagnosis and treatment instructions for the kinds of infectious disease Israel was then experiencing: diagnosing from bodily discharges; quarantine infected people; 7-day observation; if symptoms persist extend observation another week; cleanse with water; wash, discard, or even burn clothing and personal items all because one object or one person can infect another; all revealed thousands of years before biblical creationist Joseph Lister, with these passages in his mind, discovered for the world the germ theory of disease to save hundreds of millions of lives, and
56. ¶ Whereas the covid brough renewed attention to the Bible's astounding wisdom including instruction to quarantine those with symptoms, not those without,
Therefore, by this posting in the year of our Lord 2021, Jefferson County Health Department, on covid restrictions we publicly announce that Denver Bible Church refuses your counsel, condemns your recklessness, and despises your lawlessness. We urge you to return to actual health concerns and to trust in Christ.
* Theses 22 and 57 - 95: Regarding thesis #22, see kgov.com/masks-nasa-and-co2. And as for a total of 95 theses, 56 is close enough to 95 for government work. But regardless, over time we'll add here additional arguments against the incompetent and immoral covid mitigation efforts and in the meantime, you can glean more such arguments at kgov.com/25 and kgov.com/covid.
* DBC in the News: The article in the above screenshot from Life Site's homepage, Church challenges health department, quotes the first ten of our theses and this: "We publicly announce that Denver Bible Church refuses your counsel, condemns your recklessness, and despises your lawlessness." We thank the reporter Doug Mainwaring and the whole Life Site team including their vice president Gualberto Garcia Jones (who we interviewed last week, Life Site cancelled by Google).
* Whiteness & Coca-Cola: On today's broadcast Bob Enyart says that to atone for his whiteness, while Bob doesn't know how to be less white, he does not how to drink less coke!
* Canada's Hero Pastor: Bob thanks Canada's pastor James Coates for having the courage even to be arrested to stand for the freedom to worship God even through the coviphobia.
* 2021 BEL Telethon: Our telethon has reached $21,521 of our $50,000 goal. If you can, please help by calling 1-800-8Enyart (836-9278) or clicking on the Telethon banner or heading over to kgov.com/store. Thank you all so very much!
* Luther's 95 Theses: As Protestants we are stuck with Martin Luther, a virulent anti-Semite (see kgov.com/luther) as admitted by the Lutheran World Federation. See our BEL comments on the 500th anniversary of Luther's 95 theses.
- ¶ Whereas fear is not without its victims, and
- ¶ Whereas concern for mental health and suicide has been eclipsed by concern over a life-threatening respiratory disease, and
- ¶ Whereas the number of years robbed by the covid are given all attention with the number of years lost to suicide among teenagers and others ignored, and
- ¶ Whereas concern for first-world lives has blotted out concern for third-world lives, and
- ¶ Whereas the coviphobia global recession has threatened to multiply the ten million annual starvation deaths, and
- ¶ Whereas the coviphobia global recession has brought debilitating stunting to half-a-million children monthly, and
- ¶ Whereas America's bureaucrats are self-absorbed control freaks who wreak destruction in the name of public health, and
- ¶ Whereas the health establishment has lost all credibility by conflating death from covid and death with covid, and
- ¶ Whereas after enjoying the full support of the bureaucracy, the fauci admitted he lied about masks, and
- ¶ Whereas when "hook-up" app use was exploding, the fauci said, "If you’re willing to take a risk — and you know, everybody has their own tolerance for risks — you could figure out if you want to meet somebody. If you want to go a little bit more intimate, well, then that's your choice regarding a risk", and
- ¶ Whereas in the beginning of covid the fauci said, "The one thing historically that people need to realize, that even if there is some asymptomatic transmission, in all the history of respiratory borne viruses of any type, asymptomatic transmission has never been the driver of outbreaks", and
- ¶ Whereas the fauci continued, "The driver of outbreaks is always a symptomatic person, even if there's a rare asymptomatic person that might transmit, an epidemic is not driven by asymptomatic carriers", and
- ¶ Whereas millions of people no longer trust health care "experts", and
- ¶ Mientras que el Sr. Joseph Biden les ha dicho a los inmigrantes que pueden ingresar sin máscaras, y [Biden has told immigrants they can enter without masks, and]
- ¶ Whereas members of our church have valid health exceptions to mask requirements, and
- ¶ Whereas the HIPAA Privacy Rule safeguards each person's health status, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia will not move us to ask our church members about their health status and their mask exceptions, and
- ¶ Whereas we will therefore assume that anyone unmasked is the possessor of a mask exception (which to us is nothing but using bureaucrats' own rules against them), and
- ¶ Whereas the entire medical establishment has gone along with testing that amplifies even harmless specks of the virus to where up to 90% of positive cases barely carry any virus, are hardly infectious and, with divorcing clinical symptoms from diagnosis, and with conflating antibodies with viral load, the health industry undermines the confidence that millions previously had in medical testing, and
- ¶ Whereas bureaucrats everywhere including locally have been caught on video violating their own rules even while causing others to stop treating people like people and instead treat them like an infectious disease, and
- ¶ Whereas NASA cares more for the health of its astronauts than bureaucrats do the more tenuous health of the general public, and
- ¶ Whereas a study for NASA has found that the doubling of carbon dioxide intake doubles headaches for astronauts who have world-class cardiac and respiratory health and causes other serious problems, and
- ¶ Whereas a latest mask study showed that 500 ppm of CO2 outdoors becomes 1000 ppm indoors and 2000 ppm while wearing any of the common masks and 3000 ppm while walking indoors masked, and
- ¶ Whereas the difference between being HIV positive and having AIDS was everything, but today the entire bureaucracy and fake news pretend that being coronavirus positive is a "case" as though the person suffered from the covid, and
- ¶ Whereas stress is a major factor in increased disease, depression, and directly, death itself, the social and economic stress produced by excuse-laden control-obsessed bureaucrats suggests that coviphobia mitigation efforts may destroy more years of life than they could possibly save, and
- ¶ Whereas stress has multiplied through business failures and extended educational and career disappointment, including the devastation brought to countless thousands as bureaucrat-induced coviphobia destroyed their life's dream, and
- ¶ Whereas pre-coviphobia research shows that unemployment stress and other unemployment factors increase the death rate by 50%, and
- ¶ Whereas charitable giving sharply declines during any recession (yet for 2020 DBC supporters increased giving by 30%), the lockdown and fear instilled by bureaucrats who don't know how to follow the science is preventing countless people in need from getting help from their neighbors, and
- ¶ Whereas bureaucrat-induced coviphobia leads millions here and globally to forego routine healthcare and early diagnosis, government control-freaks are killing 1.4 million victims with Tuberculosis alone, above those who normally succumb, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia has resulted in hundreds of thousands of missed cancer diagnoses, and
- ¶ Whereas the coviphobia-induced recession has led to reductions of billions of dollars in the public's medical spending, and
- ¶ Whereas Democrat bureaucrats are finally turning against New York Gov. Cuomo, but not because of the thousand unnecessary deaths caused by his recklessness, but to preemptively stop him from challenging Kamala Harris in a 2024 primary, and
- ¶ Whereas our own seniors, like others in Colorado, have said that they would rather die from covid than from loneliness, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia has resulted in 25,000 more people dying from dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and
- ¶ Whereas the government-induced economic harm of bureaucrats undermining families' financial well-being will result in foreseeable injury and death for years to come from reduced spending on vehicle maintenance, etc., and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia economic harm has made it more difficult for our church members to eat healthy foods and more likely to eat less nutritiously, and
- ¶ Whereas the Jeffco Health Department's own fear mongering has led many to forego the very recreational exertion and work-related physical exercise that strengthens the body so folks could survive the covid, and
- ¶ Whereas bureaucrats everywhere, whose souls we pray for but whom we nonetheless despise, prove by their extended school closures that they care nothing for following the science, and nothing for kids, but revel in their newfound outlet for control, and
- ¶ Whereas, notwithstanding, we thank God the public schools have been closed as much as they have because they have become the enemy of the family, the church, and of God, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia-induced global recession will increase the kind of air and water pollution not tolerated by more prosperous societies, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia-induced recession will lead farmers and manufacturers to cut corners and produce less safe and satisfactory products, and
- ¶ Whereas the fear-based recession will bring families to reduce spending on security and safety measures other than that spent on the covid obsession, and
- ¶ Whereas bureaucrats showed their hand with their knee-jerk reaction to an epidemic by doing what they could to close churches while keeping pot shops open, and
- ¶ Whereas coviphobia-induced recession increases the economic stress that tends to increase substance abuse and tear apart marriages and families and leaves children in broken homes, and
- ¶ Whereas children raised by a mom alone is the primary indicator of kids ending up on welfare as criminals, addicts, and early death, and
- ¶ Whereas government leaders who use the covid to create problems then pretend to solve those problems with socialist measures which over time lead to increased societal dysfunction, depression, and death, and
- ¶ Whereas our government leaders have not the least awareness of what godly principles of governance even means, and
- ¶ Whereas government leaders have become the boy who cried wolf, expending whatever good will was left among millions for the next time, God forbid, that we face a true pandemic such as the 1918 flu, which by today's numbers would have killed 2.2 million people at the average age of 28, and
- ¶ Whereas vape particulates are enormous compared to a virus and a mask-clad physician vaping looks like he's an erupting Mount Vesuvius, regardless of which type of mask he demonstrates, and
- ¶ Whereas whatever few errors we may have made above would pale in comparison to the colossal catastrophe brought about by the health establishment's egomaniacal control-freak incompetence (etc., see kgov.com/95 for more)
