Secular Americans Less Likely Than Evangelicals to be Vaccinated: Poll
Well, well, well. This is sure to throw a wrench into the arguments or beliefs of liberals, leftists, certain classes of atheist, and Democrats, or anyone who hates Trump, Trump voters, evangelicals, or anyone who is a YEC (“Young Earth Creationist,” or just “Creationist.”)
The left, liberals, and those who oppose a belief in a six day, literal creation of the world (something believed by some Christians) love to ridicule anyone who expresses vaccine hesitancy, or who may believe in Creationism – the vaccine hesitant or Creationists are said to be unscientific, barely literate, red necks.
I don’t care one way or another if others choose to get the vaccine or not. Nor do I care if people believe the earth is millions of years old or only six days old.
But if you’re one of those people who is quick to assume that any one who is Republican, evangelical, a Creationist, a global warming skeptic, or a vaccination hold-out is an idiot, anti science, or a hillbilly from the backwoods, note what this poll is showing.
If you’re measuring “getting vaccinated” to mean “someone who believes in science!,” you’re going to be disappointed by this.
