Re: Coronavirus COVID-19 precautionary measures?

Actually I have heard stricter minded christens call agnostics cowards and as those who can't make up their mind far more often the any sort of Atheist. No, you haven't. Oh yes I have, in addiction to Atheists deny God because they are Mad at God or Hate God. Not God, just those who believe in Him.
