95% of Evangelical Leaders are Vaccinated, But Most Refuse to Encourage Their Followers to Get Vaccinated

According to a new survey from the National Association of Evangelicals almost all white evangelical leaders are vaccinated or plan to be vaccinated against COVID-19, and many of these evangelical ministers preside over churches where the congregants are anti-vaxxers.

These fearless men of God are too afraid to encourage their followers to get vaccinated, and they allow false conspiracy theories denying the efficacy of the vaccine to fester in their churches.

Most of these evangelical mega churches are in the Bible Belt where virus rates are surging, and where ignorant Bible thumpers need to hear the Good News that vaccines work.  

This manifest hypocrisy of white evangelicals leaders regarding COVID vaccines makes me wonder in what other aspects of their faith they are hypocrites.

I wonder how many evangelical ministers who rail against sodomy from the pulpit are engaging in homosexual acts in motels. I wonder how many televangelists who preach against porn from their pulpits are watching Pornhub.com in their laptops? I wonder how many pastors who thunder from the pulpit that the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, are secretly amazed how their followers can rely on Scripture as the ultimate moral authority when it endorses slavery and genocide?

I wonder at the extent of hypocrisy in the evangelical movement, is it so pervasive that it makes their faith meaningless?
