If He Wasn’t A Swamp Creature, Francis Collins Would Be Banned From YouTube For Covid Misinformation

It was December 2020. Francis Collins, then director of the National Institutes of Health, was just beginning his public push for the Covid-19 vaccines.  

Hoping to enlist support from evangelical Christians, Collins granted an extended YouTube interview to his friend Russell Moore, leader at the time of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.

During their interview, Collins tried to allay fears that mRNA vaccines might be unsafe because they inject foreign mRNA into the body that could linger there. Collins gave a comforting fact: “The RNA lives a very short time in your body. It is quickly degraded because RNA has a very short half-life. So there’s no residual of what you’ve been injected with beyond probably a few hours.”

Under the banner of fighting “misinformation,” the same message was spread by other health authorities. For example, the Centers for Disease Controls’s website still states that mRNA from the vaccines will disappear from the body “within a few days.”

oday 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?
