Yesterday, 17 December 2021, the 6th circuit court of appeals got the case by lottery, and overturned the previous stay of execution, so to speak, for the vax mandate for companies of 100+ employees, a minimum including all (arch)dioceses in the USA. The mandate and it’s draconian penalties are now fully back in force.
Just moments after that decision, yesterday, 17 December 2021, a coalition of dozens of companies made an emergency appeal to the Supreme Court of these United States. Finally. But given the recent track record of new “Justices” of SCOTUS, there is little hope, but we will pray. The problem is the the history of SCOTUS going way back is extremely pro-vaccine. Yep. If SCOTUS refuses to hear the appeal, the mandate and country-ending penalties remain in place.
- “Penalties for noncompliance with the ETS [Emergency Temporary Standard] are consistent with existing OSHA violation penalties. OSHA may issue a penalty for violating or failing to follow the ETS up to $13,653 per violation. Penalty for failure to abate an OSHA citation may be up to $13,653 per day beyond the abatement date. For willful or repeated violations, the penalty may be up to $136,532 per violation.” (National Law Review)
As of this very moment, the first deadline of the mandate, 5 December 2021, is already past. The more draconian mandate deadline of 4 January 2022 (the 30th anniversary of my priestly ordination) is just a couple of weeks away.
I won’t comply with any abortion-tainted murderous fake-vaccine. Nor can I afford $13,653.00 dollars every single day, nor – when it is found out I’m obstinate – $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day.

There is zero chance that any (arch)diocese is going to pay $136,532.00 per violation, that is, per day, per priest who is not vaxed, and let’s just say that that’s for the reason that any (arch)diocese would be bankrupt before the projected end of the first tentative mandate period: 4 May, 2022. That date will, at any rate, likely be pushed forward beyond Super Tuesday, November, 2024. Right? That’s the best case scenario for motivations, bankruptcy.
If SCOTUS lets the mandate stand, I have to wonder what will happen to tens of millions of people, many of them sheep of the Lord’s Little Flock. Loss of jobs, loss of residence, total loss. Their being thrown into a dumpster will have a knock-on effect for hundreds of millions of people nationally and then, of course, on the rest of the world.
- “But Father George! Father George! You’re so dramatic! The SCOTUS will take up the case and will rule the way YOU want them to rule, Father George! The world does revolve around you and your little desires! Don’t worry! Just get the vaccine! We did!”
So say the top shepherds of the Lord’s Little Flock, from the Pope on down, increasingly sarcastic, increasingly vicious.
For myself, I couldn’t care less about being thrown into a dumpster. I am concerned about the Lord’s Little Flock: what about the provision of the Sacraments for the lambs who want the Sacraments?
And the answer from the Pope on down… is…
I mentioned this post to Father Gordon this morning, and his response was:
- “Let’s go, Brandon!”
If I were to get the testing every week ($139.00 per test) it would amount to $7,228.00 per year.
OSHA already realizes that there may be unavailability of tests and those surveilling tests but have not offered a work-around for that.
Many (arch)bishops around the world, already mandating the vaccine for their priests and workers and all volunteers in parishes, etc., mock those who ask for a religious exemption. Yep.
Lemme get this right: priests who offer Mary’s Son at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are being required to be complicit in the murder of babies, the littlest of the brethren, by getting a vax that was researched on the organs ripped from those babies, was developed with the organs ripped from those babies, or was tested on organs ripped from those babies? Yep. That’s the case. I will not comply.
Please, share this post… Maybe another priest will see it and be encouraged…
