Ep 560 | How Tim Keller & Russell Moore Became Mouthpieces for Masks & Vaccines | Guest: Megan Basham Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey

    • News Commentary

Today we're talking with Megan Basham, a reporter for the Daily Wire who recently wrote an article exposing how Francis Collins and the NIH co-opted evangelical leaders like Tim Keller and Russell Moore, influencing them to support the establishment narrative on masks and the COVID vaccines. Interestingly, everything these people claimed was a "fringe conspiracy theory," like lab-leak theory or that masking isn't actually very effective at slowing the spread of COVID, turned out to be correct. So why were Francis Collins, the CDC, and others so adamant about their own unverified ideas and so dismissive of anything the Right had to say about having church in person or freedom to choose whether or not to be vaccinated?
