St. Paul’s Anglican vs. COVID

Is it really all the same to church leaders, when 100 people stay away because they haven’t vaccinated versus when 100 stay away because they don’t want themselves and others to get sick? Among the first 100, I suppose some number of them will be of an ideological sort of opposition, such that just adopting the POV the policy could alienate and antagonize them from the church. (50 of them? 10 of them? ) I don’t think the church can view the two 100 as just equivalent numbers of butts in pews. I think it might occur to them that it will be harder to reestablish closeness with the ideologues in the second group, if it opts to exclude them versus the 100 who are just concerned for safety and already distancing in every other possible way.

“Among the second 100, I suppose” is what I meant to type. Whoops
