Speaking on his livestream broadcast this Monday, right-wing pastor Shane Vaughn claimed that the COVID-19 vaccines are “not working” because the United States is being punished by God for allowing abortion and LGBT people to have equal rights.
“I’m going to tell you what God told me to tell you,” Vaughn said. “They’ve got variants coming that ain’t no vaccine going to work for. This nation is under the judgment of God. And I want to tell you something right now: They’re already admitting that the vaccine is alarmingly not working. Alarmingly! They’re alarmed at what they’re seeing. Do you know why? Because America, you’re making a huge mistake.”
“Why would you go begging them for their help?” he continued. “They have nothing that’s gonna help [God’s] judgment that is coming upon this nation. The only help for the child of God in this hour is the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, Yeshua the Messiah.
Vaughn said that as long as people ignore his warning, they’re going to “chase vaccines until there ain’t no vaccines left.”
“I don’t care if you got one. Go for it. God bless you if that’s your choice,” he said. “But I’m telling you if that’s where your faith is, you’re going to be in for a big disappointment. God is going to force you to look to him. These vaccines are gonna quit working on every corner until this nation falls to her knees and repents for dead babies and repents for the sodomy of this nation!”
Vaughn’s claim about vaccines not working is patently false. While there have been breakthrough infections for people who’ve been vaccinated, the incidences are rare and those who do experience breakthrough infections have an astronomically low chance of severe illness.
