Governor Andrew Cuomo: “God Did Not Stop the Spread of the Virus,” Humans Did

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was on CNN yesterday and he said something that I found really bizarre and outrageous. The governor said that the progress being made in New York against the coronavirus has nothing to do with God.

“Our behavior has stopped the spread of the virus,” Cuomo said. “God did not stop the spread of the virus.”

Of course, the left is quick to blame any human tragedy on God, mockingly asking why He would allow it. But is the governor, who claims to be a faithful Catholic, really that clueless?

Does he not know that if God decided that New York was finished all the cable news commentators and talking heads in New York could not change His plans?

Is Cuomo so unaware of the role faith plays in leading countless doctors, nurses and first responders to risk their lives to save others?

Is he not aware of how many people, alone in their apartments, have sustained themselves through prayer and the knowledge of a loving God?

Does he not know that God is the source of all wisdom, without Whom there would be no life-saving medicines?

Of course, this is the same governor who once said that pro-life Americans weren’t welcome in his state. But if I were the governor of New York right now, I would be very careful in suggesting that God is not welcome in New York either.

Our founding fathers strongly believed that God had a central role in creating and sustaining this great country. And as Ronald Reagan once said, “If we ever forget that we’re one under God, then we will be a nation gone under.” Note: Gary Bauer is the president of American Values, a national pro-family organization and is the former president of the Family Research Council.
