So, with Holy Communion still on her tongue, the pastor of the Catholic parish had the police harass a pregnant mom with a one-year-old baby in her arms, threatening to handcuff her. She was trespassed for not having worn a mask. In that state it’s not against the law not to wear a mask. It’s the policy of that pastor. The police enforce the policy under trespassing laws. I’m not going to fault the police on this. The pastor chose that time. Wow.
In that video, you’ll also see how another parish is segregating parishioners according to some sort of Covid-Vaccine Passports or whatever verification of reception of a vaccine. Even with the relaxed rules of HIPAA regarding Covid-19, I’m guessing it’s a violation of HIPAA to force people to self-report their status in a public forum. Of course, the answer is that attendance at a religious event is voluntary. Good answer for HIPAA. But this should not be for the church.
There’s also demonstrably verifiable news of a pastor of a parish forbidding anyone to approach the Sacrament of Confession if they have not submitted to the Covid-Vaccine.
This is not right on a number of levels, first of all because getting a vaccine whose development and/or testing has depended on the murder of children is not to be a gateway for someone to be forgiven of sin. A sin used as a gateway to be forgiven of sin? Forbidding Confession can have eternal ramifications for either going to heaven or hell. What’s this priest doing with this bullying?
All of this happened in just the last few days. Guaranteed there will be much more of this and in a church near you.
And then it will come about that any priest not presenting such anti-Christ activities will be removed from the priesthood. Guaranteed.
“If they do this when the wood is green, what will they do when it is dry?”
UPDATE: the priest got vaccinated and so he’s offering face to face in the sanctuary for non-vaxers while vaxers can go privately. Which still makes no sense. There’s a shaming aspect to this. At any rate, I can’t see how it is that he’s not suspended for having forbade Confession for non-vaxers.
