If Trump’s National Day of prayer doesn’t work, then . . .

To fight COVID-19 and appease his evangelical followers, Donald Trump has declared today a “National Day of Prayer.” That’s fine—as long as the rules regarding the results are consistent. If COVID-19 suddenly stops in America, Trump’s right-wing Christian followers will rightfully claim that prayer works and God swooped in to help. On the other hand, if COVID-19 continues to rise in America, Trump and his followers must admit that God either doesn’t exist, doesn’t have the power, or doesn’t give a shit—and it’s time for America to be the secular nation our founding fathers intended it to be.
