Noting that the pandemic has led to people’s fears, frustrations, anger, and concerns overflowing onto the streets and the internet, Archbishop Beach is most disconcerted by the vitriol and lack of Christian character displayed among Christians on social media. He insists that, as followers of Jesus, we should be appalled by the broad labelling, assumptions, and condemning of whole groups of people, together with the mean and personal attacks on individuals.
