It’s not going away. We may wish for peace, wish to live peaceably with our governments and societies, but desiring it so does not make it so. We need to have our eyes open to where we are living, not where we want to live. We need to be making decisions based on what we are actually dealing with not decisions based upon idealistic motives. Rather than going away the restrictions continued, becoming even more long term in nature, more permanently built into our societal and cultural structures. In some places and areas of life they have gotten better, but in others worse.
“That includes private indoor gatherings, which will be restricted to two households if any person at the gathering has chosen not to get vaccinated.
Only 10 people will be allowed to gather outdoors on private property if someone is attending who’s eligible for vaccination but hasn’t gotten their shots. In indoor public spaces, only 25 people or 25 per cent capacity, whichever is lower, will be allowed in such a situation.
For indoor faith-based gatherings that don’t require proof of vaccination, capacity will be reduced to 25 people or 33 per cent capacity, whichever is greater. Fully immunized people and those under 12, who aren’t yet eligible for vaccination, will be allowed to gather in these settings without capacity limits.”
Manitoba Churches that do not discriminate against second class citizens will themselves be discriminated against by the Government. What will shepherds of Gods flock do now? Will they bar the unvaccinated? Or will they limit who can come to worship by following these directives? Or will they allow their congregation to gather together as one people again. The temperature is warming up lobsters, but slow enough so nothing jolts us into doing something. Get off the shifty ground. Do not enforce practices that are designed to create resentment towards second class citizens. Stand up for your people rather than execute and follow discriminatory practices. It’s time to go underground and evade their vain conspiring.
And if you think you can get away with going along with this discrimination because its just a short while, take it from the horses mouth.
“Roussin said for now Manitoba’s public health orders amount to “a very significant lockdown on the unvaccinated.” “If you are waiting until the proof of vaccine requirement ends, you will be waiting for a long time,” he said”
Some of your people will be second class citizens, dangerous denizens, for a while. The Feds have booster shots booked for 2-3 years, which may or may not be needed, but either way the discrimination will likely last as long. It’s not going away, yet.
