I have read about how 45% of evangelicals are refusing to take the COVID vaccine. We are described as the largest demographic of non-vaccinators. You can read one such report from the New York Times here.
Of course the world cannot distinguish between various versions of Chrsitianity, much less the distinctions between evangelicals, conservative (doctrinally oriented) evangelicals, and fundamentalists.
I will be getting my second shot this Friday, and could not wait until I was could get my vaccine. One relative, who is not an evangelical believer, discussed how he was glad to get the vaccine -- not for his own safety -- but to help society get over this thing by doing his part. It seems to me that mentality is lacking in the evangelical world. And I think that is a shame.
So what do you think? Is this an earned black eye? Or are others wrong to look down up us because we are primarily concerned about ourselves and our families only, and not our society?
Feel free to opine: a lot of worthwhile rabbit trails possible here!
