  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Have you cut ties with your unvaccinated friends?

    Yeah, and it still is more dangerous than getting Covid.

    Doesn't protect the pedestrian you accidently run over. Maybe driving cars isn't worth the cost in lives it kills every year world wide.

    Ok, let me say it a different way. "What is your point in asking if I wear a seatbelt etc."

    Oh? I would prefer driving to work every day to having COVID. I wish some of the nut job road rangers could get vaccinated against stupidity.

    Driving a car does have certain risk associated with it. Hence there are various precautions put in place to minimize injury and death, as I mentioned.

    Similarly one can take precautions against contracting and/or spreading COVID-19. E.g. vaccines, masks, social distancing, etc.

    In the end, it's about reducing relative risk of harm to ourselves and others.

    That doesn't do anything to save the lives that are at risk now from the dangers of driving and motor vehicles. Should we not value life more than any other concern?

    Seeing the handfull of fruits to date, though without citation, I am very much inclined to agree.

    Why didn't they title the piece
    Half of vaccinated Canadians say they’re ‘likely’ to spend time around those who remain unvaccinated.

    Would there be an agenda in choosing the half that they did and ignoring the other half?

    Most of my friends are vaccinated. The chief exceptions are two toddlers and an infant at church, because they're too young. I wear a mask when I'm near them and try to stay six feet away, to help keep them safe.

    Can you draw any line at all? If the amount of deaths per year as a result of cars and other motor vehicles on the road is an acceptable loss, that must give us some indication of the amount of deaths we as a society are willing to tolerate. For what reason are we willing to then tolerate those deaths by car crashes or pedestrian collisions? Likely because we want to maintain a modern economy.

    If the percentage of deaths due to Corona is less than a percent of the population and even then you need to factor in things like age, weight and autoimmune diseases, is it at least understandable why people might not feel the need to get a vaccine?

    I would rather take a bullet in the head than take the vaccine. That is what I told my governor.

    Funny. From where I’m sitting, the vaccinated are the normal ones. Of most everyone I know well, only a handful are still holding out on getting their shots.

    No one, out of all the people I know who’ve had the vaccine, not one has had any adverse reaction outside of the normal sore arm and fatigue or mild fever for about a day.

    No one suddenly wanted to switch to windows 11 or pay a carbon tax?
