The Archbishop of Canterbury has suggested that refusing to take the coronavirus vaccine goes against the Christian faith, claiming that turning down the jab violates the principle of loving thy neighbour.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby, the top bishop in the Church of England, said that getting vaccinated is a moral issue which should supersede personal desires or rights.
Its not about me and my rights to choose, its about how I love my neighbour. Vaccination reduces my chances doesnt eliminate but it reduces my chances of getting ill and reducing my chances of getting ill, reduces my chances of infecting others, Welby told ITV news on Tuesday evening.
Its very simple, so I would say yes, to love one another as Jesus said, get vaccinated, get boosted, he added.
The archbishop refused to comment on whether he believed not getting the vaccine without medical exemptions was a sin, however, he said that he agreed that it is a moral issue, saying: Im going to step out on thin ice here and say, yes, I think it is.
