Religious right silence during pandemic proves they favor Donald Trump over integrity, common decency

Here's something we are missing in regards to the Trump Administration and the coronavirus - the voice of the evangelical conservative leaders, i.e. the religious right. 

Remember all of this:

As conspicuous as Trump's fumbling coronavirus response has been the absence/silence of religious right leaders.  Franklin Graham, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, James Dobson, and the rest have in the past had no problem bragging about their access to the White House, namedropping the policies they are supporting, or conveniently appearing in pictures with Trump while either in prayer or dramatic repose.

As America has been in chaos and the Trump Administration has been in even more chaos during this pandemic, why are they so silent?
