A self-proclaimed “right-wing religious fanatic” radio host from Colorado has died of complications from Covid-19, according to reports.
Bob Enyart, 62, was both a pastor at Denver Bible Church and a radio host on Bob Enyart Live. During the pandemic, he stood out for his extreme anti-vaccination stance.
In his show, Enyart called for a boycott of vaccines “to further increase social tensions and put pressure on child killers.”
His anti-vaccine opinions were shared on his website, which read: “Bob and Cheryl Enyart have sworn not to take the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson vaccines because, as these companies admit, they tested all three products. on the cells of aborted babies. “
Enyart was for 28 years the spokesperson for the American Right to Life group, which describes itself as “the abolitionist wing of the pro-life movement”.
This claim is believed to stem from the use of cell lines from an aborted fetus in the 1970s. According to medical professionals, the connection to the original cells is distant. It is common practice in many medical procedures, such as vaccinations and cancer treatment.
In December 2020, the Vatican, which is also pro-life, said taking covid vaccines was “morally acceptable.”
His wife, Cheryl Enyart, has also contracted Covid, but no update has been provided on her condition. News of their diagnosis emerged in August after their son Dominic Enyart posted it online.
In addition to espousing anti-vaccination views, Enyart also said that “mitigation efforts appear to be worse than disease” on her May 2020 show.
In October 2020, Enyart, through his church, sued the state over its Covid rules, prompting the U.S. District Court to allow a temporary restraining order regarding wearing masks during religious services, among other social distancing rules, such as limits on gatherings.
At the time of the ruling, he said: “We were so grateful that a federal court recognized our God-given right to worship Him, our Creator, without government interference.”
Vaccinations were not the first topic he was controversial about. In the 1990s, friends and families of people who died of AIDS campaigned for his TV show Bob Enyart Live, which later became a radio show, which was taken off the air after calling victims of the disease “sodomites.”
On top of that, Enyart would recite their obituaries while Queen’s Another one who bites the dust played in the background. The frontman of the group, Freddie Mercury, has died of AIDS.
