CDC director Robert Redfield and other important public health officials are Pence-approved evangelical Christians
Now I understand why the most prominent talking heads at the press conferences ogle and defend Donald Trump. They are Evangelical Christian political activists. .. And why alt-right go after Dr. Fauci. He might not be the same type of “true believer.”
“U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, for instance, is a Mike Pence crony who previously served as the Indiana state health commissioner. He was intimately involved in the horrific HIV outbreak in that state, where Pence refused to authorize a needle exchange program until a number of people had died unnecessarily. Naturally, Trump appointed him surgeon general.
Redfield and Birx are both evangelical Christians who have been associated with HIV research for many years, going back to the 1980s. Birx runs PEPFAR, George W. Bush’s global AIDS initiative, and both she and Redfield have been involved with Children’s AIDS Fund International, which lobbies for abstinence-only sex education around the world.”
