Family Research Council doing its part to undermine Biden Administration's vaccination programs

It's hard to believe but in the middle of the country's attempt to beat this COVID pandemic, the GOP and their conservative operatives have been undermining the need for vaccinations by both raising unfounded fears and making the absurd case that getting vaccinated is an affront to our "freedoms." 

Luckily, a lot of people recognize this as a political attempt to in actuality undermine the Biden Administration's fight against COVID. You may think that it's too farfetched to contemplate that some elected officials and their cohorts are willing to sacrifice the public health for political power,  but in today's world of politics, it's not as much of an off-the-wall theory as one would think. Nor is the fact that some of these same people comparing vaccination programs to 'Nazism' today would turn around and feign sadness while pointing the accusing finger at Biden should their fear tactics reap unfortunate success.

And in the middle of it all is, of course, the religious right. One organization, the Family Research Council, seems to be devoting a considerable amount of time and energy in exploiting fears about vaccines in the same manner it continues to  push fears and ignorance about LGBTQ people. It's an easy blueprint the group is following. When your game plan is scapegoating, you can change targets but you never have to alter your methodology.
