A quote from The Blasphemous Bible, a satirical rewrite of the KJV Bible. Available in most book stores, Amazon, eBay or direct through my publisher, who is having a sale, at https://8thhousepublishing.com/books/non-fiction/389-blasphemous-bible A link to my page below. 7:21 I asked him, "Why then are they denied salvation? Why do you cast stones upon them, so that their flesh be torn?" 7:22 And I was told, "Because the lord wills it." https://www.facebook.com/TheBlasphemousBible/

They are 6% of the world’s confirmed case total. At the current rate, global deaths will reach 400,000 in two days. Total COVID-19 confirmed cases in the United States have reached 1,911,339, which is 29% of the world’s total. Active cases in America numbered 1,362,788, a rise of 13,078.
