Disdain towards the medical field is a pretty clean break from Christian tradition which for a long time has cherished and honored medical treatment and the medical field - most hospitals bear saint names - Christ literally healed people - early christian communities founded the first public hospitals
A Church that put’s it’s own “rights” over the health and well-being of it’s parishoners and the broader community is not a church at all. You cannot claim to love God and flagrantly claim to be acting on his behalf when you do evil

One of the more disturbing trends of the anti-mask cult is their appropriation of religion to push their agenda.

And they too typically couched their arguments from religious standpoint.
