Father Edward Beck announced on Christmas Eve on CNN that “the unvaccinated” should not be permitted to attend church services.
“Their is no supply chain shortage of love and compassion. I think that what we’re trying to say to people is they you have a social responsibility if you do gather, you know Christian churches many are gathering this evening and some are still not requiring vaccination, which I disagree with,” Beck said.
“I think part of caring for one another, the dictum of Jesus who we celebrate his birthday, is love one another. Show compassion. Show mercy to each other. So I think the lesson is that if we want to act like Jesus in these kind of times we take care of each other and if we’re going to gather in celebration we have to do so safely, comfortably and we have to give to one another that gift of peace and part of that is health and feeling like we’re gathering in a healthy environment.”
“I don’t think there’s a reason to say I’m not going to get vaccinated, maybe for a health reason, then you can’t come to church,” he continued, failing to mention vaccinated individuals also spread Wuhan coronavirus.
