BBC wrote: Dr Anthony Fauci has called this week's US vaccine rollout a "bittersweet" moment, as it coincided with the country's 300,000th Covid death.
Speaking to CBS This Morning, the top infectious diseases expert said it's "extraordinary" that science has rapidly delivered a vaccine, but urged Americans to continue following public health measures.

Just about 7 seconds over a minute long video.
The vaccine won't be delivered to most Americans for 6 months or more. The media was correct.
Well, I agree I was at fault and not reading the article from Christianity Today--which is good. ---especially if you took note of the following.
In it there was this reference:
Committee Members wrote: .... Q: One of the concerns raised over the resolution is the origin of these theories. Does the committee acknowledge this concern? Does the committee or the resolution endorse CRT/I?
A: Yes, we understand the concern, and have benefitted from discussion with individuals who have expressed it. We want to be clear that we acknowledge CRT/I originates from people who are not Christians and hold views that oppose the Gospel. No one is claiming that CRT/I is Christian or that all of its cultural applications are in line with Scripture.
At the same time, as with other secular theories, not every observation is wrong, sinful or unhelpful. But even insights that describe the social dynamics of our society accurately remain insufficient to address the sinful heart of man....

Well, it's good that Mississippi changed it's state flag to get rid of its Confederate emblem that was in it. I'm not sure if Governor Cuomo was inspired by that or the New York State legislature, but they may have a harder time getting rid of it than Mississippi did

31. Do not worry then, saying, ‚ÄėWhat will we eat?‚Äô or ‚ÄėWhat will we drink?‚Äô or ‚ÄėWhat will we wear for clothing?‚Äô 32. For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33.

Since the Democrats don't have control of the Senate, and I think that the possibility is remote, this article is making a big to-do about nothing! It might happen in the future, but perhaps the church is down in Georgia will decide that is time to do some evangelism and convert a lot of people to Christianity--then I'll be certain to get the people with the right views on abortion. Right now, unless this magazine thinks they're article is going to get to a lot of Georgians, something of a waste of effort.
It doesn't matter how pro-choice Biden and Harris are, (there's a link in the Atlantic article about Biden) as long as the woman can freely choose if she has an abortion or not then the responsibility is hers ‚Ěó
Both the SA and this article are interesting You can always avoid Church if you're worried about covid-19 ‚Ěó

The Democrats have become more pro-choice through the years.
Emma Green wrote: .... Democrats are not ready to fully take on the Hyde Amendment, at least not in Congress; Pressley‚Äôs recent revolt was mostly symbolic. But today‚Äôs Democratic Party is more Abzug than Carter: Its leaders have united around describing abortion using the language of discrimination in health care, rather than compromise on a morally challenging issue. The Democratic dream of 2020 is not just to take back the White House, which would allow party leaders to appoint a generation of judges and justices who will support abortion rights. Democrats want to maintain the House and reclaim the Senate as well. If that happens, the reluctant truce that‚Äôs held since 1976 may end. If Democrats have their way, taxpayers will fund abortion once again.

I'm --almost-- looking forward to getting to the shot, can't say I've been a big fan of needles or the after-effects of some of the vaccinations I've had.
