Podcast Extra - Vaccine Passports: Christian Leaders in Conversation
Show Notes

In this special episode, Rev Dr Jamie Franklin speaks with some of the co-authors and principal signatories of the Open Letter from Christian Leaders to the Prime Minister Concerning Vaccine Passport Proposals from April 2020. In light of the announcements in July that Vaccine Passports are set to become a reality in nightclubs and other crowded venues, we discuss the three main points of our original letter, which has now been reopened for signatures and will be resent to the PM and all MPs. We contend that these proposals are illogical and irrelevant from a medical and scientific standpoint, that they are immoral from a societal standpoint and that they are unacceptable to the Church and impossible theologically.

If you are a Christian leader in a church or a Christian organisation, we ask that you consider signing this letter. Whoever you are, please share it far and wide on your social media channels and in any other appropriate way. Thank you!

Joining Rev Jamie were Rev Dr William Philip of the Tron Church in Glasgow, Rev David Johnson of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland and Rev Paul Levy of the Ealing International Presbyterian Church in London.
