It's a long shot but maybe President Biden should approach church leaders.....

and say "folks, COVID is still killing your people and mine in droves and you're some of the few people that influences the public I can go to."

"Please do the righteous thing for our nation and be a strong advocate for vaccination, masking, testing and social distancing in your churches."

I think often of that photo of several church leaders gathered around tRump and supposedly offering their blessings. Maybe it's time they gathered around Joe if they're serious about their religion.

1. Announce $2k stimulus check to all vaxxed Americans

That would work faster

2. Probably right. It's sad we even have to think about paying people to do right thing.

3. In Ohio DeWine has offered money giveaways and scholarships to encourage vaccinations

And we are still at 59% vaccine *started*. Not that great.

5. Worth a shot. Have the meeting and blessing in a room near a shower

so Joe can wash off the slime.

6. I'm sure he knows that drill really well....

considering he has to deal with Rethug politicians quite a lot.

No one I can think of better to handle that task than President Joe!...

8. I'm prone to agree but....

it would be good international pandemic optics and it might have some impact on our youth involved in churches.

We need somehow to start poking some holes in the religious-right's very closed bubble.

10. They are too far gone I think

 

There simply needs to be a law that the unvaxxed cannot participate in society and starve them from existence. If money incentives, societal pressures and caring about public health haven't gotten it through their Neanderthal skulls yet, nothing will.
