UK government funds security at places of worship

first_img Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Hopkinsville, KY Featured Jobs & Calls Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 [Anglican Communion News Service] The U.K. government have announced a £2.4 million ($3.1 million) fund to help secure places of worship in England and Wales.Churches, mosques and temples have been invited to bid for grants if they can show that they are at risk of attack from religious hate crimes. Synagogues are excluded from the program because the government has provided a separate grant to the Community Security Trust, a charity that provides protection services to Britain’s Jewish communities.The scheme was launched June 26 by Britain’s senior home affairs minister, Amber Rudd, as she outlined a Hate Crime Action Plan. This will include a study into how the different police forces in the country understand and respond to hate crimes; and a commitment from the government to “give young people and teachers the tools they need to tackle hatred and prejudice, including through a new program to equip teachers to facilitate conversations around international events and the impact they have on communities here in the UK.”The action plan was launched following a rise in racist incidents since the UK voted to withdraw from the European Union. This has led in particular to an increase in anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic incidents.Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has frequently spoken out against the rise in racist incidents since the EU referendum. Earlier this month, at the Church of England’s General Synod in York, he said: “It is perfectly clear that the result and the referendum campaign had “exposed deep divisions in our society, of which we were aware already” and he called on the Church to “respond with a fresh effort in integration.”“The result [of the referendum] has released a latent racism and xenophobia in all sectors, and challenges the prevailing consensus of tolerance and acceptance, thus threatening other areas of welcome liberalization,” he said.Speaking at the launch of the Hate Crime Action Plan, Rudd said that “Those who practice hatred send out a message that it’s okay to abuse and attack others because of their nationality, ethnicity or religious background; that it’s okay to disregard our shared values and promote the intolerance that causes enormous harm to communities and individuals.“Well, I have a very clear message for them. We will not stand for it. Hatred has no place whatsoever in a 21st century Great Britain that works for everyone.“We are Great Britain because we are united by values such as democracy, free speech, mutual respect and opportunity for all. We are the sum of all our parts – a proud, diverse society. Hatred does not get a seat at the table, and we will do everything we can to stamp it out.”A government spokesperson added that its commitment to tackling hate crime was “underpinned by some of the strongest legislation in the world”, including “specific offenses for racially and religiously aggravated activity and offenses of stirring up hatred on the grounds of race, religion and sexual orientation.“The government has worked with the police to improve our collective response to hate crime including ensuring the recording of religious based hate crime now includes the faith of the victim, a measure which came into effect this year.” Featured Events Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Submit an Event Listing Rector Knoxville, TN This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Washington, DC Rector Shreveport, LA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Cathedral Dean Boise, ID New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Why COVID-19 immunity passports may violate US law

Other scenarios envision a more limited use, such as screening which hospital employees should be exposed to vulnerable patients.As a law professor who has written about legal issues raised by new biotechnologies, I’m concerned about the potential legal and ethical ramifications of immunity passports that aren’t based on vaccinations. Not only could their use violate U.S. disability protections, they could also enable discrimination and foster a two-tiered society in which many are left behind.Passport precedenceThe concept of immunity passports is not novel. Vaccination cards, for example, demonstrate immunity to specific diseases and aren’t necessarily problematic.For example, yellow fever vaccination cards are required to travel to certain countries. And university students in Florida and Colorado must have meningococcal vaccinations.But in those cases, there is a readily available vaccine that allows anyone who gets one access to a country or college campus. If a vaccination eventually establishes immunity from COVID-19, I believe such certification would be legally and ethically permissible. Courts have said that employers can require employees to be vaccinated as a prerequisite to work in certain circumstances.Absent a vaccine for COVID-19, however, some countries and companies are already looking for ways to establish immunity through antibody testing.This is problematic because it’s unclear if there is immunity from subsequent infection. And if there is immunity, it’s uncertain how long it lasts.Legal issuesThe Americans with Disabilities Act protects those who have a disability, which is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, and those perceived by others as having such an impairment, from discrimination in the workplace.Although courts have never considered lack of immunity to a disease as such an impairment, the legislative history of the ADA is broad enough to allow such an interpretation. This means that employers can’t discriminate against workers based on whether they have or don’t have immunity.The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency that enforces workplace protections, however, has classified COVID-19 as a “direct threat” to the workplace. So, despite ADA protections, employers can test employees for infection before letting them return to work. And someone who tests positive for COVID-19 could be excluded from the workplace until they recover.But employers cannot go one step further and require employees to show that they are immune to COVID-19 in order to work. Since the lack of immunity is not a direct threat to the workplace, employers have to follow ADA guidance.The ADA also protects people who do not have a disability but are “regarded as” having a disability. For example, if a cab company fires a driver because of a mistaken belief that she has epilepsy, the action would violate the ADA. That’s because it treated the non-disabled driver as disabled.A growing list of U.S. companies – Amazon and General Motors, among them – are exploring ways to test employees for infection or immunity. Current Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidance only allows screening and testing for COVID-19 infection, not antibody testing.But allowing only people with immunity – or evidence of past infection – to work would disadvantage those who haven’t gotten sick or those without the antibodies to prove it. It’s as if, in the eyes of their employer, their lack of infection constitutes a disability. The inequality that immunity passports could foster in these situations may be illegal under the ADA.As long as an employee is able to perform the essential functions of his or her job, those without immunity are most likely protected under the ADA.State and local laws may also produce stumbling blocks for immunity passports, especially in states like New York and California, which have broad civil rights protections against discrimination. Similarly, local laws like New York City’s human rights law may pose problems for immunity passports due to extensive protections against discrimination granted to employees and the public.Ethical concernsBeyond the legal problems, immunity passports also raise many ethical concerns.Some observers worry that immunity passports may encourage harmful behavior like intentional infection, similar to what happened during a yellow fever outbreak in the southern U.S. in the late 19th century. Poor immigrants sought out infection in order prove immunity and find work, despite high fatality rates.And there’s concern that the policing of immunity passports would harm people of color, just as uneven enforcement of social distancing rules in cities like New York City have targeted a higher percentage of African Americans and Latinos.Finally, it might encourage fraud, resulting in a black market for fake immunity passports.As states reopen, immunity passports may be tempting. But their use will create an underclass and a societal rift between those who are immune to COVID-19 and those who are not. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license.

O.C. Ecumenical Council Gives Thanks

Posted on by

first_imgDottie Cianci, coordinator of the Ecumenical Council’s Food Cupboard, and Dave Carter, former president of the Ocean City Board of Realtors, inspect donated items during a food drive. By MADDY VITALEThere is a room tucked inside St. Peter’s United Methodist Church that is often filled with food donated by the public.The room is used by the Ocean City Ecumenical Council, an association of local churches that helps families in need.Each year, the Ecumenical Council provides food and clothing to people in the community, with the help of local groups, organizations, residents and volunteers.In 2019, the Ecumenical Council Food Cupboard distributed food to 1,725 clients, including home delivery to the homebound. The Clothes Closet helped 2,924 clients with 25,000 articles of clothing, shoes and linens, according to statistics from the Ecumenical Council.More than 2,300 Acme supermarket gift cards were distributed throughout the year and 12,000 pounds of food was collected as a result of the Ecumenical Council’s partnership with two Ocean City Post Office food drives.Regina Ralston, who is in charge of public relations for the Ecumenical Council, explained that all of this is possible in part because of three people who continue to be instrumental in the Ecumenical Council’s success.They are Carol Piechoski, president of the Council, Rissa Trofa, coordinator of the Clothes Closet, and Dottie Cianci, coordinator of the Food Cupboard.“These three women have been involved with this for many years and work tirelessly to make things happen,” Ralston said.The Clothes Closet distributes 25,000 articles of clothing, linens and shoes to those in need each year. (Photo Ecumenical Council Facebook page)Cianci began her journey at the Ecumenical Council about 17 years ago. As a member of Holy Trinity Church, her fellow parishioners and friends started the program.“They encouraged me to get involved and I did. I enjoy it. I think every little bit helps. We want people to know that,” she said.While the Ecumenical Council members and volunteers work hard to help those less fortunate, they are always looking for more people to give a hand, Cianci noted.She said this year, the Council wants to reach more people to let them know what it does and how they could give assistance.“We encourage people to help,” Cianci said. “Anyone can join in. We are really trying to get more people involved and tell more people what we do.”Specifically, she said, the Council is looking for more businesses to partner with for the food and clothing drives.The Council already works well in several partnerships, including with real estate offices in town, civic groups and organizations.The partnerships have been monumental in the Council’s mission to help as many people in need as possible, Cianci explained.Each year, the Ocean City Board of Realtors teams up with the Ecumenical Council for clothing and food drives that have been very successful.American Legion Post 524 in Ocean City also works with the Ecumenical Council. The Ocean City High School Student Council also helps out during the food drives, Cianci said.Making sure everyone has food and clothing are the goals, not just during the clothing and food drives several times a year, but all year, she pointed out.“We have quite a few people to help with the food drives. We are always happy when the kids come. We get the Boy Scouts, Key Club and Student Council. We need the help,” Cianci said.Hoping to recruit more volunteers, Cianci stressed that more men are needed to assist the Council during food deliveries. The Council delivers food and other necessities to housing complexes in town and also to residents who are homebound.In a thank you note sent to all of the participating churches to be published in their bulletins, the Council wrote, “Because of the generosity of your contributions, time and talent, the Ocean City Ecumenical Council has helped so many in our community this past year.”The Ecumenical Council food drive gets some help from volunteers in December 2019.
