More than 1,200 UK church leaders have urged Boris Johnson not to introduce Covid vaccine certificates, saying they are an “unethical form of coercion”. In an open letter, the leaders – who include Anglican and Catholic ministers – warn that passports could create a “surveillance state”. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56781724
So, it seems that church leaders get what the supposedly freedom-loving Tory government doesn’t. Vaccine passports are one of the most dangerous policy proposals ever to be made in British politics, and would signal the end of tolerant democratic freedom.
Bullying people to take the Covid vaccine – whether through incentives or punishments – is not social solidarity or social responsibility. It is a smug liberal conceit masquerading as those things, and is dangerously misguided.
Vaccine passports are not necessary, and are deeply discriminatory.
