    More than 1,000 vicars have indicated they will defy vaccine passport rules if they are implemented in churches, describing them as a “fundamental betrayal” of Christian belief. In an open letter to the Prime Minister concerning vaccine passport proposals, the church leaders said: “To deny people entry to hear this life-giving message and to receive this life-giving ministry would be a fundamental betrayal of Christ and the Gospel. “Sincere Christian churches and organisations could not do this, and as Christian leaders we would be compelled to resist any such Act of Parliament vigorously.” “For the Church of Jesus Christ to...

The services are being held in the Chapel of St. Macarius in the southeastern tower, which was restored...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday that the "horrifying" spate of mass shootings in the U.S. shows why gun violence is a public health issue. "As a public health person, I think you can't run away from that," Fauci said on CNN's "State of the Union" when host Dana Bash asked if gun violence is a "public health emergency." "I mean, in this last month, it's just been horrifying," replied Fauci, the U.S. government's foremost infectious disease expert. "How can you say that's not a public health issue?" The question came in the aftermath of Thursday's mass shooting at an Indianapolis...

The series kicks off today in Zandvoort, Netherlands, and the fuel will power the race cars through the whole season to test its performance and efficiency.
