Since way back in the 1970s I got to know a certain priest in my parish, Father Paul Marx. He’s the guy who founded The Human Life Center, which, elsewhere, became Human Life International. While I was doing some studies across the pond, he retired and made it known, without however, having any executive power, that he wanted me to be his successor. Meetings were set up at which I made it clear that I simply won’t compromise. That attitude was intolerable to the new weakness. That was decades ago. Things haven’t changed.
At that time I made an analysis of the appendix to the medical ethics policy of the US Bishops Conference at the time and sent it to a major conservative Catholic publication, trashing the Bishops presentation of cooperation in evil, which was to define sophistically what is forbidden formal cooperation as permissible remote cooperation. The famous editor wouldn’t publish it, however, saying that his friend, a Catholic priest, with whom he went to the same university was presently rationalizing abortion in Catholic hospitals, and my article would effectively contradict his friend’s policy for the Catholic hospital systems in his diocese. So, protecting friendship so as to promote murder.
I sent my own analysis of the Bishops’ policy permitting formal cooperation in murder to the Ratzinger’s CDF. It was passed on the moral theologian who then passed it up the ladder. The result was that the Holy See (it had to be Pope John Paul II) forced the USCCB to reverse their own ethical guidelines for the combination of state and church hospitals, forcing the USCCB, furthermore, to publish their recant, to the point of condemning bishops who followed previous guidelines and commanding those bishops to reverse everything they have done in view of the older guidelines.
That was all under John Paul II and, of course, Benedict XVI kept up the new status quo. The new more reasonable status quo continued up to the time of Bergoglio. Then all hell broke out. It was now all back to calling evil as good, formal cooperation with evil as permissible material remote cooperation.
The moral criterion that is used by the clever murderers is a lie. The bishops say that if only one tries to minimize the perception of anyone that they, the bishops, are doing evil, well, that minimization will make the actual murder into something permissible, indeed, laudable. “Did anyone notice our murder of babies in the womb? No? Great, we’re good to go!”
I was directed to speak to a certain moral theologian about all this, and he told me, Catholic priest that he was, about babies in the womb being murdered by chemical morning-after-pills. He cynically asked me: “It’s so small, so who’s going to notice anyway? So, whatever.”
At that point, I decided to speak to the icon of orthodoxy moral theologian in the USA at the time, Monsignor that he was, and he cynically asked me: “What do you want us to do, George, close the doors of all the Catholic hospitals? We need government money.”
Decades later, HLI is now rationalizing the mass murder of babies in the womb with all the clever sophistry that turns evil into good:
“Oooo! Let’s use multisyllabic words like formal and material, proximate and remote, and add some others like mediate and immediate, and, like, stuff, you know, and confuse people so that they go ahead and get the “vaccine”, because, like, that’s politically correct right now.”
Well, I’m not confused, not yesterday, not today. Murderers and liars from the beginning don’t fool me at all. I’ve written ad nauseam on this. Here’s just a couple of posts which attack some of HLI’s rubbish even when I wasn’t at all following anything HLI was doing whatsoever. When they went weak, I lost interest.
///[[Just thought I would re-post this. I wouldn’t want any readers in the Holy See and in other ecclesiastical provinces to have missed it. I’m not judging the souls of those mentioned herein. I am judging what any (Cardinal) (Arch)bishops and priests objectively vomit out against the least of the brethren in the womb.]]///
Here’s something from Christine Niles on a news report the other day, my summary: Victoria, Australia, is 95 percent “vaccinated” against Covid-19, one of most vaccinated places in the world, but also right now reporting their highest death rate in more than a decade. There were nearly 5,000 deaths in August alone, and so far this year 32,000 deaths total, which is 20 percent higher in the same time period since 2017, long before Wuhan’s Covid 19 the world. More than two thirds of Covid deaths have taken place this year.
This is proportional to what is happening in other super-“vaxed” locations.
In other words, the “vaccine”, which has zero effect on the Coronavirus, only making you weakened and more susceptible until you have no immune system – even worse with successive boosters – was and is calculated to cull “excess” humanity. That’s the science. And that’s the Green New Deal. “Kill ’em all!” the greenies command.
But people will cover their ears and shriek in denial and get their 5th “booster” as I bid them to go to instead go to Confession and prepare for death as the death rates hyperbolically sky-rocket right around the world because of immune systems weakened continuously by the “vaccine” and “boosters”.
“But Father George! Father George! That death isn’t from Covid! That’s just, like, multiple other viruses and stuff that people get all at once soon after their jab and boosters! So what! That’s just a zillion coincidences! But we’re all set! We can conquer anything! We got the ‘vaccine’ and, like, ‘boosters’ and stuff.”
Anyway. Go to Confession!
“But Father George! Father George! Experimenting, doing research, development and testing of ‘vaccines’ on embryos isn’t a sin! ‘It’s just an embryo!’ [That’s an actual direct quote from a ‘Catholic’ ‘health official’ to me].”
The purposed murdering of the least of the brethren in the womb so that big pharma might experiment on their organs is a sin. Jesus, the Son of the Living God, was “just an embryo”. Saint John the Baptist, the greatest prophet, sanctified in the womb was “just an embryo”. These purpose-murdered babies are the image of God, of Jesus, who identifies with the least of the brethren. Make no mistake, these youngsters, the tables having been turned,
What did Parolin say, that the babies self-donated themselves? Here’s a reprint of a post I wrote back on 14 January 2022, absolutely worth a re-read:
If you know the Jack Bauer 24 Hours series, you will remember this scene when Jack rips out a “chip” from the stomach of an adversary while the guy is alive, without anesthesia, hastening that guy’s death.
The analogy, of course, is that big-Pharma gets a pregnant woman whose baby has been tested for maturity and perfect health into an ultra-sterile pharmaceutical laboratory to extract that baby and then, immediately, alive and now breathing, extracting organs from that healthy fully developed baby to use for research, testing, development of “vaccines.”
In the article below I make some objectively stated commentary on the words of Cardinal Pietro Parolin. I do not subjectively judge his soul. I know nothing about that. That’s for the Lord to judge, but if someone presents something, communicates something it can be objectively judged. When I call him a liar and murderer from the beginning I’m referring to his words. Just so we’re clear:
Murderer and Liar in Chief, the Cardinal Secretary of State, Archbishop Pietro Parolin, says that the purposed murder of these babies for our own selfish “benefit”, is, well, you know, if it’s just murder for testing instead of also for research and development, then that murder merely for testing is all good, even though testing is intrinsic to any research and development, is one and the same with research and development.
“But Father George! Father George! You have to be wrong! Pope Francis says it’s a moral obligation to get the murder-the-baby-jab, and he’s, like, the Pope and everything! So, like, there! Take that! Both the Pope and the Cardinal Secretary of State! Two against one. And they’re, like, big, and you’re, like, not! You’re in big trouble, Father George! Be afraid! Be very afraid!”
Cardinal Parolin Appears to Deny Conscience Right Exemption [= he totally rejects religious exemptions] from Vatican’s Pfizer Vaccine
Responding to a query about his Dec. 23 ruling mandating vaccination for all Vatican employees and visitors who haven’t recently recovered from COVID-19, the Vatican secretary of state indicated religious exemptions are not ‘justified’ with respect to mRNA vaccines. [Because, the commandment not to murder the innocent has no place in religion?! Cardinal Parolin is a liar and murderer from the beginning.]
VATICAN CITY — Cardinal Pietro Parolin has said Vatican employees seeking to be exempt from the Vatican’s new vaccine mandate because they oppose the vaccine’s link to abortion “seems not to be justified” as it was only tested rather than produced using the cell lines of aborted fetuses. [Testing requires the same murder, Cardinal Parolin, you liar and murderer from the beginning.]
On Dec. 23, Cardinal Parolin, who is the most senior Vatican official after Pope Francis, ruled that entry to the Vatican now was only to be permitted to those who were vaccinated [a demonic irony] or had recently recovered from COVID-19.
In Jan. 9 written comments to the Register [obviously a cynical political timing to influence SCOTUS], the Vatican Secretary of State said that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine administered at the Vatican [“at the Vatican” – All of Vatican City needs an exorcism.] does not use such “cell cultures” in its composition or production but “only in the preliminary stages of vaccine testing in the laboratory.” [As if murdering a baby for testing is any less a murder. What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]
“On the other hand, other vaccines (Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson) are actually produced from cell cultures that were donated [=purpose-murdered] about 40 years ago [time, for Parolin, is not morally relevant, and therefore original sin, Redemption, a murder of someone more than 40 years ago is not relevant in regard to judgment for heaven or hell, for Parolin. But Jesus holds all of time in His hands as a creation…] for scientific purposes” [as if “science” is a license to murder], he added. [This freak Cardinal Parolin says that the baby donates himself or herself to be murdered and therefore it’s all good. What a freak demon. There has been many evil things said by Pope Francis and others in recent years, but this cynical statement about “donation” has to go down as the most evil statement in the entire history of the world, truly. What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]
“Therefore, it seems that not wanting to undergo vaccination with this motivation [of objecting to the vaccine’s abortion link] cannot be justified, since the vaccine that is currently used is precisely the Pfizer one that uses the mRNA method,” he said. [What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]
The Dec. 23 decree mandated vaccines for most employees and visitors, stating that staff without a valid “Green Pass” attesting to vaccination or recovery from the virus would be unable to access the workplace. Those lacking this documentation would be “considered a case of unjustified absence” and effectively suspended without pay.
Cardinal Parolin also decreed that, from Jan. 31, all Vatican employees who serve in contact with the public would be obliged to provide official documentation proving they had received the full anti-COVID vaccine, including the third booster dose. [So, he’s aware it doesn’t work at all.]
Vatican City State was one of the first territories to offer the Pfizer vaccine to its employees, back in December 2020, and both Pope Francis and Benedict XVI reportedly received both shots and the booster jab. [That’s not morally relevant to us. That’s on them only.]
The cardinal, who was relaying information to the Register from “competent persons in these matters” whom he had consulted for his response, also briefly explained the messenger RNA (mRNA) technology that teaches cells how to make a protein that will trigger an immune response inside the body.
Cardinal Parolin said these “mRNA vaccines (the best known of which is Pfizer, the one we use) are produced with a technique that does not involve the use of cell cultures but are synthesized through a method that involves the insertion of fragments of genetic information into the bacteria belonging to the type of Escherichia Coli [bacteria that normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals, but some strains cause illness].”
“These are subsequently left to multiply for several days in crops which are rich in nutrients,” the cardinal added. “In this way it is possible to extract numerous copies of the DNA sequence from which then the mRNA sequences used for vaccination are produced.” [Meanwhile, there are murdered babies in abundance. These guys are liars and murderers from the beginning.]
Vatican Document References
To buttress his position, the cardinal also made reference to a note “on the morality of using some anti-COVID-19 vaccines” published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Dec. 21, 2020. The note declared it was “morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process. [I know the CDF well, so well, when I was in Rome, that I did my famous “Day Off” with them, once going to climb the Gran Sasso d’Italia with the whole crowd. None of these guys are infallible. None of them will speak for anyone at the judgement. They’re just weak human beings. Nothing more, nothing less. To cite them as an authority as if they were infallible is something that’s done by liars and murderers from the beginning.]
“The fundamental reason for considering the use of these vaccines morally licit is that the kind of cooperation in evil (passive material cooperation) in the procured abortion from which these cell lines originate is, on the part of those making use of the resulting vaccines, remote,” it added. [Oh, really? Remote by way of time? Time is irrelevant. You are accountable to God for any murder you commit, no matter how long ago. By way of place? Place is irrelevant. You are accountable to God for any murder you commit or willingly benefit from even if the murder was in a sterile big-pharma laboratory. By way of number of people involved? That’s also irrelevant. It’s purposed-murder of the least of the brethren, of Jesus, by big-pharma precisely for research, development and testing of “vaccines”. Is it truly better to murder one Innocent Man than that a whole nation perish? That murder is a sin. It’s all in one direct continuous line of complicit behavior, from the guy with the scalpel to the guy who receives the product of the purposed murder for his own selfish benefit. One Knight of Columbus told me that he was happy to have a baby be murdered for himself. Yep. This is risking the unforgivable sin.]
The CDF note stated that using such vaccines does not in itself legitimize, even indirectly, the practice of abortion [Of course it does. It is abortion. What liars and murderers from the beginning. This is the biggest promotion of abortion since Roe v Wade.], nor does it amount to a moral endorsement of the use of cell lines proceeding from aborted fetuses. [But that’s exactly, precisely and in great particularity what it does. Testing is essential to these procedures. These people have to ask themselves as to whether they themselves are malicious.] It also added that pharmaceutical companies and state health agencies are encouraged to produce alternatives “that do not create problems of conscience for either health care providers or the people to be vaccinated.” [So they admit there is a problem of conscience. So they just “encourage” alternatives as big pharma rakes in trillions of dollars. I wonder if and how much “encouragement” big pharma gave the Vatican.]
Furthermore, it stated that “vaccination is not, as a rule, a moral obligation and that, therefore, it must be voluntary.” [So how is it that these liars and murderers from the beginning are forcing “vaccines”?]
Cardinal Parolin also referred to a 2017 document from the Pontifical Academy for Life [the most pro-abortion freakoids on the planet] that used similar arguments to the CDF note, namely that the cell lines used are “very distant from the original abortions and no longer imply that bond of moral cooperation indispensable for an ethically negative evaluation of their use.” [“Distant”… in what? Perception? You freakoid liars and murderers from the beginning. Again, time and place and numbers of people make no difference in a directly committed murder with which one is complicit, from which one benefits in a direct continuum from the guy with the scalpel to the guy or gal receiving a jab. The moral cooperation is as formal and proximate as that murdered individual glaring at you with Jesus, asking Jesus how long it will be before He takes vengeance on their murderers (see Rev. 6:9). Jesus doesn’t scold them; He just instructs them to wait a bit longer. And then He will take vengeance, even against those who protest with their misused words.]
Catholic leaders have taken varying positions on receiving the vaccine, with some such as Bishop Athanasius Schneider and other pro-life Catholics rejecting the use of a vaccine with any link to abortion, and other pro-life faithful, including Princeton Professor Robert George, asserting it is morally acceptable to receive any of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available [which means he’s not pro-life at all].
Cardinal Parolin’s differentiation between what he attests is the moral acceptability of using the Pfizer vaccine as opposed to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the Astra Zeneca vaccine, is somewhat similar to guidance issued by the USCCB last March, which stated that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine raised “additional moral concerns” and that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines consequently should be preferred. However, the USCCB guidance did not indicate there were no moral problems at all associated with the mRNA vaccines, and it also stressed the importance of continuing to “insist that pharmaceutical companies stop using abortion-derived cell lines.” [There are problems, but – ah, the hell with it – go ahead and use them but just say you object. Go along to get along. $$$ All liars, all murderers from the beginning.]
The Register asked Cardinal Parolin about his new decree regarding anti-COVID restrictions: “Until now, personnel could self-exempt themselves from taking the vaccines against COVID by obtaining a negative test. Now those tests are no longer accepted, will exemptions be made for those personnel who cannot, in good conscience, take the vaccine on grounds of the vaccine having been derived (tested or produced) from aborted foetal stem cells?” [Great question, Edward.]
The full text of Cardinal Parolin’s Jan. 9 response to the Register follows:
mRNA vaccines (the best known of which is Pfizer, the one we use) are produced with a technique that does not involve the use of cell cultures but are synthesized through a method that involves the insertion of fragments of genetic information into the bacteria belonging to the type of Escherichia Coli. These are subsequently left to multiply for several days in crops which are rich in nutrients. In this way it is possible to extract numerous copies of the DNA sequence from which then the mRNA sequences used for vaccination are produced. In the case of mRNA vaccines, cell lines from aborted fetuses were used only in the preliminary stages of vaccine testing in the laboratory, but no cell lines from aborted fetuses are included in either the composition or production. On the other hand, other vaccines (Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson) are actually produced from cell cultures that were donated about forty years ago for scientific purposes. Therefore, it seems that not wanting to undergo vaccination with this motivation cannot be justified, since the vaccine that is currently used is precisely the Pfizer that uses the mRNA method. Concluding, I would refer you to the Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith on 20 December 2020, as well as the document of the Pontifical Academy for Life issued on 31 July 2017. [In other words, a non-answer by which you know you’ve already been axed from your job. Such a liar and murderer from the beginning.]
“But Father George! Father George! You can’t say things like that! They won’t like you!”
My answer to that? Sigh. There’s no escape. These guys are not only unbelievers, they want to crush believers. What am I going to do? Be silent? They would still know that I’m a believer. I’m already dead. Thanks be to God and Immaculate Mary and my guardian angel. I’m already dead.
