Maneuvering by the present secular Biden Administration continues by way of the U.S. Department of Justice regarding “vaccine” mandates even as many countries right around the world are locking down or even shooting anyone unvaccinated. Any win for the Administration from the Supreme Court will have immediate repercussions and strengthen attempts at further “vaccine” mandates already pushed by the Center for Disease Control.
In many places, religious exemptions are being rejected by secular authorities due to hierarchical religious authorities promoting or even requiring the “vaccine”, including Catholic bishops, archbishops and cardinals throughout the USA and right around the world, even to the point of rejecting seminarians or dismissing and even suspending priests if they do not go against their consciences so as to go along to get along.
My co-alumnus of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, Archbishop Mark Coleridge, rejected the conscience-rights of all his priests, that is, for everyone but himself:
- “I will not consider conscientious objection to receiving the vaccination as a valid exception set out here. I fully respect the rights of conscience, especially when formed in the Catholic understanding. But I too have a conscience, and it is not just legal obligation but conscience which has led to my decision.”
In other words, he has, with full knowledge and consent, gone against the rights of conscience when formed in the Catholic understanding and demanded that his priests commit this grave sin as well.
Pope Francis obviously condones this behavior as he makes highly emotional attacks on those who reject the mandates, calling out those priests and bishops and cardinals who reject reception of a “vaccine” as being suicidal and murderously careless about the lives of others. Not only is he not reprimanding those (arch)bishops who do such violence against the consciences of their own seminarians and priests, but the Holy Father is likely to mandate the “vaccine” for all priests just as he’s already done for all in Vatican City and for all bishops and priests he meets in his travels.
Thus, secular authorities already have precedents in abundance to reject any attempt by a Catholic priest to avoid the “vaccine” based on a religious exemption. It is imperative that the (arch)bishop of any (arch)diocese which has pushed the “vaccine” put his signature to a religious exemption specifically for his priests, and then another for the laity. Otherwise he has stolen and trampled upon everyone’s conscience.
- “But Father George! Father George! Why would you ever want a religious exemption?”
That’s what a priest asked me the other day. He admitted I was sincere when I said that the “vaccines” are from the living organs of babies purpose murdered for research, development and testing to get you that vaccine, and that Jesus said what you have done to the least of these you have done to me. It’s like taking a machete to Mary and Elizabeth to extract little Jesus and little John the Baptist for our own benefit. Time is not a moral criterion, making a directly wrought evil for some specious hope for good somehow irrelevant morally because it happened a while ago and we can attempt to “distance” ourselves from that. Really? How successful have we been in distancing ourselves from original sin? Not at all. Do we also say that our redemption wrought by the New Adam is irrelevant because of time going by?
Stupid bishops. This is not rocket science. What you promote is evil. And you know it. Why do you do it? Go to Confession. Do penance by writing exemptions for your priests and for Christ’s faithful.
Galatians 2:11, because Ezekiel 23:20 is about what you look like to God when you prostitute yourselves to the nations. It’s important for your eternal salvation. Hint: Ezekiel 23 is all about your political correctness. No, go ahead. Read it. Let’s go Brandon!
And if any bishop is offended by that innocent rap song… no, really, read Ezekiel 23:1-20. It’s all about you. It’s God inspired word telling you to F*** off. Yep.
- “But Father George! Father George! You’re so disrespectful! Stop it!”
That’s not me. You should be careful of calling Sacred Scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit disrespectful. You know what’s worse than that citation? It’s called being mocked unto scorn unto being ignored. Try this from those you refuse to lead:
When Archbishop Mark Coleridge says “F*** Catholic Conscience” and so many bishops join him right around the world, their collective Blah-Blah-Blah is simply rejected. They are all irrelevant. Entirely. The most obscure cancelled priest who is faithful to Jesus is more important to the salvation of the world than all those bishops put together. Those who “F*** Catholic Conscience” militate against the salvation of souls. I would not want to be them at the judgment.
But, again, this is the kind of rebellion that they want. They want people to become cynical. But this is what they do not understand. Clarity in the appraisal of their failure is an act of charity to them and the entire Little Flock of Jesus. It is not cynicism if I don’t care if their feelings are hurt. It’s called charity. I want them in all charity to go to heaven. But they need clarity in that charity. Clear enough for them? We pray they see the clarity in all its charity and themselves stop entrenching in their rigid cynicism. Hail Mary…
