“WALTHAM, Massachusetts, June 30, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A medical journal discovered that 82% of women who took an mRNA vaccine in the first 20 weeks of pregnancy had a miscarriage — and then it then buried the data. In mid-June the New England Journal of Medicine published a study called “Preliminary Findings of mRNA Covid-19 Vaccine Safety in Pregnant Persons” by Tom T. Shimabukuro and others from the Center of Disease Control’s “v-safe COVID-10 Pregnancy Registry Team.” The team wrote that there were “no obvious safety signals among pregnant [women] who received Covid-19 vaccines” even though it published a table which showed that 82% of women in the study who were injected with either the Pfizer or the Moderna vaccine during early pregnancy lost their babies. More prominent in their study was a claim that only 13.9% of all “completed pregnancies” had ended in miscarriage — but this figure included the women who were not vaccinated until they were in the second half of their pregnancies.”
[For the link and the rest of the scientific article, just google some of this text. I’m still struggling with pneumonia and I put bits and pieces of important articles into draft posts while flat on my back in bed. It is what it is. But just to say, these are not just miscarriages. These are the precise result of killing babies so as to research, develop and test the very vaccines that are causing more death. How very demonic.]
Two of those links (2 and 3) have reference to the same item, but have various ways to get to various internal links, as the cancel crowd are already removing from the internet your ability to get at the facts. Once you start digging to get the facts, the more you need to be fortified with prayer. We live in a very dark time.
I can pretty much guarantee that any bishop promoting vaccines will NOT read or listen to any of the above links. They don’t want to know the truth. They feel the power! They say: Pro-abortion homosexualist moral theologians told us that directly doing evil to achieve a good is to be praised. They say: The devil made me do it. Yep. They are correct on both counts about the pro-abortion homosexualist moral theologians and the devil. But they; are incorrect on assertion that doing evil to achieve a good is to be praised, and incorrect again that the devil forced them to be so evil: they have a choice. They have chosen to be Satanists. Jesus says that Satan is a liar and murderer from the beginning. Jesus is the Living unmanipulatable Truth.
Jesus laid down His life so that we would stop murdering each other.
Any bishop who says that – for health or money – we should purposely profit off the murder of babies in the womb for vaccines, thus murdering the image of God, thus tantamount to ripping out John the Baptist and Jesus from the wombs of their mothers, should be forthwith excommunicated. Jesus said: What you done to the least of these you have done to me.
And don’t give me the useless argument that pro-vaccine death mongers are not liable to excommunication because they have not themselves had hands-on participation in ripping a baby out of any womb. These moral heretics are excommunicated because of their moral heresy about how good it is, they say, to do evil to achieve good.
Does one need more than one hand to count those bishops who are truly pro-life, you know, in the entire world? I think not.
Jesus asked if there would be any faith when He returned. I’m guessing that those numbered with faith would be just above zero, at least among the filthy murderous priests and bishops. And yet, Jesus’ Church will remain until He comes again. Jesus will always have what He Himself calls a “little flock.”
Previously, limited populations have been required to choose between life and death (as with Moses and the Chosen people: I put before you life and death, choose life!), or between YHWH and Baal (as with Elijah on Mount Carmel: If Baal is god, follow him; if YHWH is God, follow Him!).
But it has never before happened in human history that, all things being equal, every human being in the entire world, all the many billions of us, have of a sudden and all at once been required to choose between eternal life and eternal death, between the God of Life and murderous Satan.
“Take the vaccine!” scream the Satanists, their voices gurgling with the blood of the children they have had executed for their sake. And now you have a choice. Every person in the world has a choice, of a sudden.
Don’t think you can say: “I have no choice; I’m required to take a vaccine.” That’s not true. You can lay down your life for the least among us. Yes. Choose eternal life.
Jesus said that He would come among us as a thief in the night. Apparently, almost no one has heeded His kind warning, having fallen away from love of God and love of neighbor before the time, so that when we are required to choose life or death, the weak and politically correct, the cowards, the go-along-to-get-along crowd, choose to turn their backs on Christ Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception.
There are “next steps” to be taken. The instant I saw bishops and their affirmation yes-men in the Holy See, particularly Pope Francis, intimating that those who do not take the vaccine are tantamount to being murderers of their fellow man, that is the instant I understood that it will come about that priests will be required to take the vaccine, and booster vaccines and unending other vaccines OR ELSE they will be:
quietly reprimanded, but firmly, talked-over, brow-beaten, marginalized, you know, emotionally, because that’s the level where these tender snow-flake entitled-to-be-vaccine heroes are at…
publicly reprimanded, with all sorts of threats, even with chancery henchmen reading episcopal statements that are pro-vaccine from the pulpit at the Holy Mass that the reprimanded priest is offering…
removed from active ministry without reassignment…
provided no remuneration on which to live, having no insurance, having their housing entirely removed…
suspended a divinis, from divine things, so that, even cast aside already, the priest is further smacked down so as to remove him from any and all availability for the High Priest, Christ Jesus, you know, just to demonstrate all the more hatefulness…
put under, say, territorial interdict – an exercise in baiting – so that if such an entirely “rebellious” priest roams, say, out of a county even for a moment, even to get food or medicine or to fix a vehicle, he will state by such action, such a horrible “sin”, that he desires to be dismissed from the clerical state (laicized), even though that’s the last thing he wants to have happen…
excommunicated with a declaration about the same being published in the diocesan newspaper, calling the priest a murderer for not getting the murder-derived vaccine.
Of course, most filthy liberal bishops will move from a quiet reprimand right to a threat of slitting the throats of priests forthwith. That will prove to, say, Pope Francis, that they are nice bishops. Nice!
This is apocalyptic not only because of massive and generalized apostasy, loss of faith, but because in priests being smacked down, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will almost entirely disappear from the face of the earth. Yep.
Can you bishops read the signs of the times? No? Perhaps you ought to go to Confession. You have become dull of mind, heavy of heart, blind in sight, deaf in hearing, thinking that you yourself can save yourself under your own “power”, turning to the “lord” whom you have replaced with yourself, thinking you have salvation in doing this. When you are in hell in the jaws of Satan, no one will come to your rescue. Go to Confession. And let us know about it. Tell us about the conversion the Lord God has accomplished in you. Be a good example in repentance. Stop persecuting priests who want to respect the life of the image of Jesus in the womb.
As for me, I will be happy to stand in solidarity with these least of the brethren at the Last Judgment. They will be perfect adults at that time, bearing the life of the Most Holy Trinity in themselves, seeing God in the Face, gloriously, immensely happy, and they will let me know that it will be a joy for them to have me there are also in heaven with them for eternity.
I would rather be heaven with “aborted fetuses” for eternity than with tender snowflakes entitled only to meltdowns as they drop into hell.
I’ll tell you this, by the grace of God, I will not slash open the wombs of Elizabeth and Mary so as to rip out merely-a-fetus John the Baptist and merely a fetus Jesus so as to give those “products of conception” and “useless tissue” to “scientists” to make “vaccines.” Ain’t gonna happen.
And if I die “before my time” because of a Covid infection, I will let that stand as a witness to respect for life, a martyrdom. That’s what I think about it. And as I’ve always said with ironic reverse meaning:
Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.
///sarcasm: Oh! I forgot! The rationalization that the bishops use is the argument of coercion! My bad! Someone screams: “Commit murder!” and that means that you can now can go ahead and commit murder with praise from God! /// off sarcasm
No. You will personally answer for all the murder before the God of life. Go to Confession. You cannot directly do evil to achieve good.
To this USCCB: You remember your medical ethics guidelines back in the 1990s, the appendix about formal and material cooperation, about proximate and remote cooperation? You remember how the Holy See forced you to recant that appendix and the evil you have done with that appendix? That was me who put that reprimand through. But now you have gone back to that appendix, most dark and most evil, rationalizing that it’s all good because now we have a pope who doesn’t much care what you do. That’s not a good excuse before Jesus. No, it’s not.
It’s extremely rare that you will find a Catholic priest or bishop who could care less about the murder of children in the womb by way of abortion, or who are against partial birth abortion, or who are against infanticide.
“Why do I say that?” you ask.
It’s extremely rare that you will find a bishop, backed by some henchmen priests, who will NOT push for the removal of a Catholic priest from active ministry, you know, a priest who is non-compliant with the culture of death, particularly the Wuhan Joe culture of death.
“Why do I say that?” you ask.
For such bishops, a priest who is not willing to sacrifice children to the demonic god of “death-power” is the enemy of their self-congratulations, their ♬ feelings ♬ of “power” of the cowardly killing of the entirely defenseless, you know, so that they can look likes heroes, clever, sophisticated, a valued member of the club… the proud hellions of the culture of death.
“Why do I say that?” you ask.
Go ahead, try to give me names of of those bishops who will NOT dismiss a priest from active ministry who insists on respecting the lives of defenseless children, you know, any bishops who ARE promoting vaccines developed and/or tested by the usage unto death of defenseless children, vaccines like Johnson and Johnson, Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna, etc. Can you think of any besides Cardinal Bourke, Bishop Strickland, Bishop Schneider, or a few others anywhere in the world? Do you think the vast majority will tolerate the presence of a priest who speaks against taking such vaccines?
Their compromise, their subsequent bloodthirstiness, their consequent Judas-like death mongering, is threatened, they feel, by any priest who insists on respecting the lives of defenseless children in the womb. And I just bet you that these will be the same bishops who, year after year, for decades, insist on collections being made for Catholic Relief Services and Catholic Campaign for Human Development, both of which fund abortion right around the world.
Just guessing here, but would not these be the same bishops who have given themselves to homosexualist abuse of minors, who belong to the homosexualist club. I mean, I don’t know, but it’s all consistent, you know, treating children like fresh meat on which to foist their “power.” Many of those children will later commit suicide. It’s all the same. Sex for death. Yep. It’s just that in the case of murderously taking children out of the womb for the sake of self-congratulations uses euphemisms like “product of conception,” or useless “tissue.”
“Father George, you exaggerate, we haven’t heard of any priest getting forcibly aborted from his parish, uh… getting administratively removed from his parish for cautioning people against vaccines! You exaggerate!”
But what if a priest, having preached very many times about the taking of such vaccines, at length, with incisive clarity, with great passion, so that there is no mistake about what he has presented, is accosted publicly in front of his congregation by someone who proclaims that they have gotten, say, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, damned be the damned babies as long as they themselves think they are getting some profit, some expedient, convenient benefit from murdering those children for themselves, proclaiming that Johnson and Johnson is “better” because in their opinion, even though it is developed within the cells of the murdered-for-this-purpose human being, at least it’s not changing their DNA like the other vaccines. But that’s like saying a murder for money is better than a hate-crime murder. They are both murder.
What if that priest then immediately says just as publicly, right in front of his congregation, with calm and respectful but firm voice, that in conscience he, as Jesus’ priest, cannot administer Holy Communion, our Eucharistic King to such a person, stating that it is immoral to use others for ourselves, what with Jesus having laid down His own life for us so that we would STOP murdering others for our own self-congratulations, Jesus, who was himself in the womb of His Immaculate Mother for nine months, Jesus, who said that what you have done to the least of these you have done to me?
What bishop, publicly promoting that his priests take such vaccines, what bishop would, or humanly speaking could tolerate a priest who will refuse Holy Communion to those who publicly proclaim what they have done in getting such a vaccine developed from and/or tested upon the most defenseless, the weakest of the brethren? They cannot tolerate such a priest threatening their “power” over death in mockery of our God of Life.
Just guessing, but any such hellion bishop will forthwith remove such a priest form active ministry, right?
Headlines around the world:
“Catholic priest denies Communion to any church members disagreeing on Covid-19 vaccines.”
Yep, that would take a nanosecond, and the whole world would be putting pressure on such a bishop to do away with such a priest, to make an example of that priest, once again making himself the hero before men even while denying God to His face. What did Jesus say He would do before His Heavenly Father at the Judgement for those who have denied Him in the least of the brethren? He said that He Himself would deny them before His Heavenly Father. But hey! I’m preaching to the choir of hellions. Already on this earth they desire hotly to go to hell. Can you ♬ feel ♬ the “power”?
Well, all that would make it rather quickly to Pope Francis, himself a Covid-19 vaccine taker. Say that such a priest is a Missionary of Mercy of Pope Francis. What happens then? Will such a priest be held up as a murderer in that it is said he is putting people at risk of death? Will the Holy Father then have that priest’s bishop contacted to force that bishop to threaten such a priest with not only removal from his parish, but with suspension, interdict? That not working, will the priest be threatened with papally sanctioned forced dismissal from the clerical state (“laicization”)? That not working, will the priest be threatened with excommunication, so that not only can he not provide Sacraments, but neither can he receive sacraments such as an absolution, such as Holy Communion, such as the Last Rites? Cut off. Anathema.
As the great Girolamo Savonarola, O.P., responded to the one excommunicating him not only from Church on earth but, acting ultra vires, also pretended to excommunicate him from entering into heaven: “Questo non tocca a te” – “This isn’t within your capacities to do.”
I’ll tell you this: I, Father George David Byers, will consider it an honor to stand in solidarity with those children murdered in the womb who then stand before the throne of God, with Jesus, at the Judgment. I will consider it an honor to tell Jesus that I threw away, buried all my talents so as to exercise the talents He, Jesus, the High Priest, provides to His priests, His wounds, that it is His wounds that I proclaimed, that I didn’t back away from putting into action, His wounds of being spoken against, persecuted, marginalized beyond the peripheries, His wounds of thirsting for justice, righteousness, in mourning for those executed, desirous of mercy for those used and abused, His wounds of the greatest love in all truth, in all goodness and kindness, with no ill will toward anyone, desirous that all are turned to God by grace to be saved by Him.
“Remember then how you accepted and heard; keep it, and repent. If you are not watchful, I will come like a thief, and you will never know at what hour I will come upon you.” (Apocalypse 3:3)
And here we are. Seemingly, of a sudden, the entire world is being asked to make a decision. Are we willing to murder the image of God in the womb so as self-congratulate ourselves, or are we begging Jesus for His mercy and forgiveness so that we might love one another as He has loved us?
“I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the LORD, your God…” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20)
“Elijah appealed to all the people and said, ‘How long will you straddle the issue? If the LORD is God, follow him, if Baal, follow him.'” (1 Kings 18:21)
Those not watchful may get fooled into – or be purposeful in – choosing demonic violence with arrogant self-congratulatory sophistication and cleverness. They are all around us. They might be pillars of the community. They might be “nice” people. They might be people with money. Oooo!!! Money!!!
I remember a parish to which I was assigned as a deacon. The first thing the pastor said was that I was preaching all five weekend Masses so as to introduce myself. The second thing the pastor said was that I was never ever to even mention abortion or contraception because there is someone in the parish who supplies “the parish” with new cars every year. Always the same.
You cannot serve God and Mammon.
“Father George! You don’t understand! We have insurance to pay! Insurance companies have policies about Covid-19! You’ll throw a wrench in the kickbacks we get for parishes following the rules! Kill those babies! Everyone is doing it!”
Sigh. Anyone publicly, notoriously serving the death demons will be denied Holy Communion just as publicly, and that’s a favor to such a person, confirming to them that they have attacked the image of Jesus and need to repent of this with a firm purpose of amendment. That purpose of amendment would include not getting similar Covid-19 vaccines as “boosters” or as that which has the pretense to ward off “variants.”
“Whoever eats the Bread or drinks the Cup of the Lord unworthily will be guilty of the [murder of the] Body and Blood of the Lord. A person should examine himself, and so eat the Bread and drink the Cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the Body [of Christ], eats and drinks judgment on himself.” (1 Corinthians 11:27-29)
The reprimand from Jesus to a priest by a bishop or pope smashing down a priest of Jesus for that priest’s respect for Jesus’ image in the least of the brethren is surely to be severe. A reprimand from Jesus to browbeating priests smashing down another priest’s respect for Jesus’ image in the least of the brethren is surely to be severe.
Have you recognized the time of your visitation? Have you chosen death thinking to have gained life in this world? Fool!
Have you realized that Jesus wants you to choose life? Do it.
By the way, this is not virtue signaling. I can’t clarify more than I have. I can’t retract. This is my conscience before the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception while He is yet unborn in the womb of His Virginal Mother. This is me saying against the hellions:
“Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.”
I say that with a different sense than Martin Luther heretic freakoid that he is. I mean that in the sense of being ecclesial, remaining with Jesus and His Church, the only true Church, the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. That individuals in the Church like once Catholic priest Father Martin Luther lose their way and want others to lose their faith does not – by the grace of God – influence me one bit. Jesus wants me in heaven, and I’m good with that.
P.S. I’ve been doing this a long time – being at the ready to deny people Holy Communion – so much so, and to such effect, that the viability of Code of Canon Law 915 was confirmed and solidified at a General Wednesday Congregation of Cardinals at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in the early-mid 2000s based on the total hell that I was suffering for this. Yep. That was me. ;-) I’m not going to stop now that I’m a “senior priest,” as I’ve been called. I’m not going to get along just for the sake of getting along. I want to go to heaven. Don’t credit that to me. It’s Jesus doing that. He want’s all of us in heaven.
Let’s use the example of the saints, this time from the Second Book of Maccabees, 6:18-31:
Eleazar, one of the foremost scribes, a man of advanced age and noble appearance, was being forced to open his mouth to eat pork. But preferring a glorious death to a life of defilement, he spat out the meat, and went forward of his own accord to the instrument of torture, as men ought to do who have the courage to reject the food which it is unlawful to taste even for love of life. Those in charge of that unlawful ritual meal took the man aside privately, because of their long acquaintance with him, and urged him to bring meat of his own providing, such as he could legitimately eat, and to pretend to be eating some of the meat of the sacrifice prescribed by the king; in this way he would escape the death penalty, and be treated kindly because of their old friendship with him. But he made up his mind in a noble manner, worthy of his years, the dignity of his advanced age, the merited distinction of his gray hair, and of the admirable life he had lived from childhood; and so he declared that above all he would be loyal to the holy laws given by God. He told them to send him at once to the abode of the dead, explaining: “At our age it would be unbecoming to make such a pretense; many young men would think the ninety-year-old Eleazar had gone over to an alien religion. Should I thus dissimulate for the sake of a brief moment of life, they would be led astray by me, while I would bring shame and dishonor on my old age. Even if, for the time being, I avoid the punishment of men, I shall never, whether alive or dead, escape the hands of the Almighty. Therefore, by manfully giving up my life now, I will prove myself worthy of my old age, and I will leave to the young a noble example of how to die willingly and generously for the revered and holy laws.” He spoke thus, and went immediately to the instrument of torture. Those who shortly before had been kindly disposed, now became hostile toward him because what he had said seemed to them utter madness. When he was about to die under the blows, he groaned and said: “The Lord in his holy knowledge knows full well that, although I could have escaped death, I am not only enduring terrible pain in my body from this scourging, but also suffering it with joy in my soul because of my devotion to him.” This is how he died, leaving in his death a model of courage and an unforgettable example of virtue not only for the young but for the whole nation.
Go to Confession.
P.S. I’d like to recommend for the salvation of souls that I not be smacked down, but rather that I be given a chance to help bring people back to the sacraments in the proper manner, I mean, you know, if it’s thought that the above is not a merely hypothetical example. But, you know, just writing about hypotheticals can be met with all the fires of hell, right? So, here we are.
Otherwise, are we priests to say that there is no doctrine, no morals, no sin, therefore no forgiveness, no need for the very Son of the Living God?
Listen up! Christ Jesus, Christ our God, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.
Amen to that.
Oh, and the Missionary of Mercy thing. I would love to remain as a Missionary of Mercy. But I cannot give up on being in solidarity with those thrown beyond the darkest of existential peripheries, those littlies, so defenseless, so horrifically murdered. I will continue to stand by them with no apologies, come hell or high water.
Take a look at both of these, one being more recent with candidates you’ll be more likely see around and about, and the other being more complete.
Don’t think that if healthy viable babies in the womb are dissected to death so as to “harvest” wonderfully formed organs for “mere” testing that the “mere” part makes it all better, you know, better than developing “vaccines” from the start and not “only” for testing. They are all babies, human beings, made in the image and likeness of God.
AstraZeneca and Janssen/Johnson and Johnson “vaccines” are both developed from and tested on super-healthy viable babies in the womb that they have tested and executed by procured abortion precisely for the purpose.
Both Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna test their “vaccines” on super-healthy viable babies in the womb that they have tested and executed by procured abortion precisely for the purpose.
All those babies are babies, human beings, made in the image and likeness of God and because you think they are vulnerable to your monstrous actions – such power! – you think you’re good?! Power! Power! POWER!
Babies are put to death, executed for you, and you think that’s all good because you’re not the one cutting them to pieces?! They will judge you in front of Christ our God, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. And don’t think that because they are babies that they not going to take vengeance upon you in the life to come at that judgment. The martyrs in heaven beg for vengeance in the Apocalypse, and Jesus does not reprimand them, but tells them to wait just another little while. And then it will happen. Jesus will make sure that those who so proud of sacrificing children go to hell. Yep.
The Israeli version uses only hampsters and monkeys.
Anyway, viable, better, ubiquitous, cheap alternatives are available at your local animal feed store, such as Ivermectin. Yes. That means that the stupid argument about duress is straight out of hell. It always was. There is never any kind of duress to commit mortal sin, the murder of the innocent just for your own selfish self. Will you be imprisoned? Maybe. Will you die of Covid? Maybe. People are regularly getting Covid even after TWO shots of the murder of others. This is about destroying consciences and sending people to hell.
In a trial of 1,200 nurses treating Covid-19 patients, 800 were given Ivermectin, the other 400 were given a placebo. In the placebo group 50% got Covid. In the Ivermectin group there were zero cases of Covid. Get it?
If you know what you’re doing, getting abortion tainted vaccines is a mortal sin. It’s like you saying that everyone should die for you, you damn entitled hell-child. The littlies of Jesus’ little flock will go to hell, but you make of yourself a hell-child.
Jesus died for us that we wouldn’t put others to death for ourselves. Get it? Are there no believers?
You’ve already gotten AstraZeneca or Janssen/Johnson and Johnson? You’ve already gotten Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna? Afraid of going to hell? Repent. Go to Confession. But don’t think that you can know all this before getting a shot, while presuming on getting absolved by the Holy Spirit in Confession, and actually be forgiven with the sanctifying grace of the absolution. You really have to repent, not do it in the first place, or if you’ve already done it, repenting by promising never to do it again, you know, in the present circumstances when it is said that you may well have to get a yearly Covid vaccine. You can trick the priest, but you can’t pull one over on the Holy Spirit. Presumption is actually a sin of despair, a sin against the Holy Spirit. I mean, go ahead and try to justify yourself to the Holy Spirit and see if that works (hint: it will not work):
“Holy Spirit, I’m going to go back in time and rip Jesus out of Mary’s womb so that Jesus can be cut up for me so I can get a vaccine that, if it doesn’t kill me within minutes, won’t give me more than relatively just a few more minutes to live in this world, you know, if I don’t get in a traffic accident or something that I’ll just blame you for anyway, O Holy Spirit! And so, to hell with your damned eternity Holy Spirit. I want my few extra minutes here. To hell with eternity. Let them die! Let all the healthy babies die for MEEEEeeee! for MEEEEeeee!” (falling into hell).
That won’t help you.
You think I’m an ol’ meanie? No, no. Jesus says about these times: “Let the wicked still act wickedly and the filthy still be filthy.” That’s their choice, after all. But Jesus also says, “The righteous must still do right, and the holy still be holy.” (Revelation 22:11) Let’s see this in context with the ending of the Book of Revelation:
Let the wicked still act wickedly, and the filthy still be filthy. The righteous must still do right, and the holy still be holy. Behold, I am coming soon. I bring with me the recompense I will give to each according to his deeds. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Blessed are they who wash their robes [in the Blood of the Lamb] so as to have the right to the tree of life and enter the city through its gates. Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the unchaste, the murderers, the idol-worshipers, and all who love and practice deceit. I, Jesus, sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let the hearer say, “Come.” Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water. I warn everyone who hears the prophetic words in this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone takes away from the words in this prophetic book, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city described in this book. The one who gives this testimony says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all.
I have no way of verifying the following article that came out on the Archdiocese of Philly site, but it looks to be well researched. Has the USCCB actually done something helpful? Any comments on all this from anyone with better internet skills than mine?
Covid-19 Vaccines Explained: Eric Failing from the Pennsylvania Catholic Conferences has received the following updates and clarifications from the USCCB regarding developing Covid-19 vaccines:
First, regarding the progress toward a vaccine, while there are more than a hundred proposals underway, perhaps the most relevant list of proposals is the one the Trump Administration has chosen to focus on with its Operation Warp Speed (OWS) vaccine project. Here we have some good news regarding concerns about proposals connected to aborted fetal cell lines. Among the current list (it could continue to grow), 5 of the 8 proposals are considered to be “ethical” based on expert scientific analysis concluding that they did not rely upon aborted fetal cells for their design, nor do they use such cells in their production. The other three are deemed “unethical” because they utilize aborted fetal cell lines in their production. The expert analysis comes from Dr. David Prentice and his fellow scholars at the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) and can be seen in this excellent document: An Ethics Assessment of COVID-19 Vaccine Programs. Another excellent and helpful CLI document is A Visual Aid to Viral Infection and Vaccine Production.
What follows is the OWS list of proposals with the funding each has received so far from the government. As you can see, the “ethical” proposals are currently getting almost 4 times more funding than the “unethical” proposals (Vaxart is the most recent addition and hasn’t yet received funding). Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that an ethical vaccine will be the first across the finish line, but our advocacy is focused on pushing for at least one ethical vaccine to be made available.
Ethical (6.5 Billion):
Unethical (1.65 Billion):
Second, some of you noted following Lauren’s presentation that you had heard some controversy regarding categorizing Moderna’s proposal as ethical. Dr. Prentice and other science experts have reviewed the Moderna proposal and concluded that: 1) its design did not rely upon aborted fetal cells; 2) its production does not utilize aborted fetal cells. Below is my simplified explanation of Moderna’s COVID vaccine proposal that is based on information from Dr. Prentice and has been reviewed by him for accuracy. In addition, ethicists have examined the explanation below and have found it satisfactory.
Explanation of Moderna’s COVID vaccine proposal: The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine candidate is composed of a lipid particle (oil droplet) containing genetic instructions (mRNA) that merge with a person’s cells to deliver the instructions inside the cell. Those instructions tell the cell how to make a viral spike protein (a “flag”) which is either displayed on the outside of the cell or secreted into the blood and body fluids. Our immune cells see this viral protein, recognize it as foreign, and create antibodies against it. These antibodies are then stockpiled and ready to attack an actual virus should it invade our body.
The supposed connection to aborted fetal cell lines in patents does not cite the correct Moderna patent related to its vaccines, and the cites in the incorrect patent are to research concept examples unrelated to the actual vaccine production. Some Moderna collaborators (NIAID/UT) did use abortion-derived HEK293 cells to produce viral spike protein to test its shape and antibody binding, but their test did not determine the design or production of the nucleic acid sequence, and in fact was done only after Moderna had already determined the genetic sequence needed, developed their mRNA sequence vaccine, and begun production of the mRNA vaccine. Moderna is not producing a spike protein for its vaccine, nor does it use cell lines (aborted fetal cell or otherwise) in the production of this mRNA vaccine. Moderna’s vaccine is mRNA (instructions) that tells the body how to produce its own spike protein. Bottom line, Moderna vaccine production does not utilize aborted fetal cells and its design did not rely upon aborted fetal cells.
My statements, questions about all this:
(1) Again, does anyone have any scientific reason why I should not give the green light for the morally established vaccines listed above? I mean, if the procedures have always respected proper morality I myself wouldn’t mind taking one of these if it meant that that was the only way I would be allowed, as a priest, to give Last Rites to a dying patient in a hospital or nursing home. Otherwise I wouldn’t. There can be side-effects, right. But I don’t care, as long as it’s moral and I have to do it so as to give Last Rights.
(2) Among the ethical vaccines listed above, which one has the best results, time-frame, least side-effects, and longest lasting benefits?
So, in speaking my smackdown advisor, I have forthwith smacked down. None of the above article is correct as the testing was on baby parts and that testing was required to proceed though the development had nothing physically to do with baby fetal line cells.
The above arguments claiming morality all fall apart because of the availability of, say, Ivermectin, extremely common, tested, safe, ethical, moral, meant to kill off parasitic worms in animals. No human babies were harmed in the testing and production of Ivermectin. It has worked so far 100% of the time.
