In an article published last year, M.I.T.-trained scientist Fr. Nicanor Austriaco passed along speculation that the HEK-293 cell line may have been developed using tissue from a miscarriage. This cell line is in the news because it has played a role in the development and/or testing of the three vaccines currently authorized for emergency use for COVID-19.
The point of Fr. Austriaco’s conjecture, I presume, was to reduce worry that this cell line started with an abortion. But worry we should.
A Nonsense Claim: This conjecture seems to have become a full-fledged rumor. In recent months, many Catholics and other Christians have cited that rumor when defending these vaccines. But the rumor, to put it bluntly, is nonsense. There’s nothing in the scientific literature dealing with this claim, and for good reason.
No competent biologist would even try to establish a living cell line from dead tissue.
This fact becomes clear when we examine two things:
Number One: The biological process of miscarriage and stillbirth post-mortem changes at the cellular level.
A mother’s body tends to expel tissues related to pregnancy between four and twenty days following fetal demise. Most spontaneous abortions in early pregnancy (1st trimester) are caused by abnormalities in the chromosomes. In these cases, an embryo does not form. What tissue is expelled would be useless for establishing a cell line.
The other causes of miscarriage and stillbirth result in the death of the embryo or fetus. This demise happens several days to a few weeks before the expulsion of tissue.
Number Two: That time gap is critical, and bears on the second point: Cell Death.
When an embryo or fetus dies, its cells change fast. Autolysis begins within minutes after the vital functions of the brain, heart and lungs cease. This is a process of decomposition or “self-digestion,” where the cell membranes break down and release enzymes. Since oxygenated blood has ceased to circulate, the levels of carbon dioxide in the cells begin to rise and the pH within cells becomes ever more acidic. This rising acidity causes membranes within the cell to rupture. This includes the membrane of the lysosome, which contains a variety of enzymes for the digestion of nucleic acids, fats, proteins, and so forth.
In fact, even a run-of-the-mill abortion probably wouldn’t suffice. For research purposes, fetal tissue must be harvested and cooled within minutes of the abortion.
The rate of autolytic spread varies throughout the organism. Two of the main variables are the concentration of enzymes in the type of tissue and its temperature. Some organ tissues have relatively high concentrations of enzymes. The liver, kidneys and pancreas are examples, given their functions within the body. Smooth muscle tissue and lung tissue, in contrast, have relatively low levels of these enzymes. This is key, since researchers seek organ tissue as the source of cells for a cell line.
Scientists can’t reverse this process. As a result, they can’t establish a living cell line using the tissues expelled from a miscarriage or stillbirth.
Temperature: Temperature is also a major factor in miscarriage, since it has the greatest impact on the spread and progress of autolysis. The higher the temperature, the faster the autolytic reaction. Very low temperatures can slow the autolytic process dramatically, which explains how people have been revived after apparently drowning in very cold water, suffering no permanent ill effects.
In the case of a miscarriage or stillbirth, the temperature of the expired fetus remains at core body temperature inside its mother until it is expelled. This warm setting speeds up the progress and spread of autolysis.
Now, recall that the time between the fetal demise of a miscarriage and expulsion of the pregnancy tissues is measured in days. That means that by the time the tissue is expelled, there is no metabolic function anywhere in the fetal body. In fact, the expired fetus goes through a process of maceration (autolytic fermentation) prior to expulsion. This has the appearance of putrefaction: The skin separates and the tissue underneath becomes darkly discolored — though putrefaction is bacterial decomposition, whereas the amniotic sac is a sterile environment.
These are gory details of course. But they should make it clear why scientists would not use tissue from a miscarriage to establish a living cell line.
Carefully Coordinated Abortion: But what about perfectly-timed fetal death and then delivery in a hospital? Could that provide material for a living cell line? Almost certainly not. In fact, even a run-of-the-mill abortion probably wouldn’t suffice. For research purposes, fetal tissue must be harvested and cooled within minutes of the abortion. The scientific literature strongly implies that the abortions are carefully coordinated with tissue harvesting. One gets the clear sense that the abortion and the harvesting of the desired tissue were planned to preserve the integrity of the tissue.
In summary, establishing a living cell line from dead tissue is not possible. The cell lines used to test and/or develop the available COVID-19 vaccines came from abortion and deliberate planning, not spontaneous miscarriage or stillbirth. Resurrection of the dead requires far more than a medical degree or a PhD. It requires the direct power of God.
José L. Trasancos, Ph.D. is the President of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Children of God for Life. He is delighted and blessed to be working there alongside his wife, Stacy, advancing pro-life causes, advocating for the preservation of human dignity and fighting to end the use of aborted fetal tissue in science and commerce. José and Stacy live in Hideaway, Texas, surrounded by their five children, one granddaughter (one of six grandchildren), two German Shepherds and a Bassett Hound.
6MWE = Six Million Wasn’t Enough, which means 6MIE = Six Million Isn’t Enough.
6MWE is an academic opinion as far as the law is concerned, but it may hide an active threat of a serial killer.
Proud Boys can’t see anything wrong with 6MWE. They think to say 6MWE is good.
I checked out what Proud Boys say of themselves. How very filthy, disgusting. Anyone belonging to the Proud Boys who was Catholic has taken himself out of the Church.
I’m not virtue signaling here. Catholics who should know better and vaunt themselves as “leaders”, say, some bishops in Texas, seem to have the idea that it’s no good to lobby against procured abortion claiming that “no political issues” can be mentioned in church regardless of also being moral issues belonging to the Ten Commandments, indeed, to natural law (without which there is no moral life). Religion does have something to do with the moral life!Simultaneous to this is what seems to be the opinion of some of them that nuances regarding the 2nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution can be politically lobbied about, as long as what one says politically militates against the 2nd amendment. Because defense of the innocent against mortal aggression already being delivered threats is evil? Have these bishops taken themselves out of the Church?
Some years ago you said: “What have I learned from dad? Just be faithful to what you need to do in the circumstances right before you, step by step. Just do it. Do it fiercely. No apologies. No compromise. Ever.”
Your father was doing his duty during wartime with a Catholic mind and in accord with his state in life; and that way of thinking and doing, learnt from him, is how you live and we are grateful because it means you guide us well through our troubled times. [[ I hope I can live up to that by the grace of God. ]]
We are in a war – not a war so called, though. This time around our military is not engaged in a just war against enemy combatants trying to destroy us. Our war is demonic because it pits all peoples against their most innocent members – their unborn children. More than ever before we need good fathers: holy men teaching and protecting their families, holy priests teaching and protecting their flocks, holy bishops, and a holy pope governing the whole Church. And we need to implore St Joseph, guardian of the Church, for help!
Many in the Church and the public at large appear to have embraced what Father Pokorsky calls the “Caiaphas principle” – that is, “… it is better for you that one man die for the people than that the whole nation perish” (John 11:50), the “one man” in this case being the unborn chosen to die for a vaccine for the many.
Why? “With the wonderful advances in medical technology it becomes easy for us to presume ourselves to be the ‘masters of life’ rather than the ‘ministers of life’ (cf. Humanae vitae 13). Hence the contraceptive mentality, at its root, is a sin against faith. And as Chesterton says, ‘It’s the first effect of not believing in God that you lose your common sense’.”
Loss of Faith to loss of common sense; loss of common sense to mass contraception; mass contraception to a flourishing abortion industry, the unborn becoming disposable or a commodity – a raw material – to be bought and sold for the benefit of others. Horrible!
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.
Kodi Lee has done more to bring people to respect life than all politicians of this dark, sorry world put together. The culture of death freakoids want that such as these not have the chance to live. But good on you, Kodi. It took you just two minutes to have Simon Cowell say, with an audience in the many tens of millions:
“We would be nothing without you. God bless you.”
We rejoice in Kodi’s verified perfect pitch.
We rejoice that he is one of the more or less 25 musical savants that we know about in the world.
I bet there are millions with such talent among the differently gifted in whatever direction but who instead are written off as disposable, not worthy of respect.
What I know is that Every Single Human Being is the image of God, whereas the fallen conditions we plow through in this world, with all of our sickness and death, have nothing to do with the glorious vocation that we have to be the children of God, to be on our way to heaven, where the tables will be turned, and all limitations of this life will be what is cancelled.
Yes, blessings upon those who respect the differently gifted, who take care of those with special needs knowing little of the great Treasure all creatures of God carry. Blessings upon those who suffer the anti-life mockery and icy scorn of this dark fallen world, from neighbors, at the supermarket, from the culture of death warriors who feel entitled to murder the differently gifted in the womb and on the street, in “camps”.
Yes, blessing upon those who respect the differently gifted, for they are warriors of respect and love carrying the brunt of such arrogance and haughtiness coming not only fallen human society, but from some supposed members of the church. Just to see the differently gifted, just to see the respect and love from carers, is enough to send the self-absorbed parasitical Prometheans into apoplectic fits of denial, blinding themselves to the fact that we all have severe limitations after original sin and must be on our to heaven, or else. God is Love, and that’s the Truth. And that sends them around the bend. They are anything but love and truth. This is sooo very difficult for carers, who get little encouragement when encouragement should be forthcoming.
It’s so good, everything is right, when seeing the vulnerable respected, welcomed.
I recall a sight I frequently witnessed as a permanent chaplain in Lourdes officiating over the afternoon Blessed Sacrament Procession, when, inside the Lower Basilica of Saint Pius X, after the Blessed Sacrament was enthroned upon the altar, the procession would enter, come down the ramps, and make its way to our Eucharistic Lord, first a river of wheelchairs, then of “chariots”, then of rolling hospital beds, then the rank and file of all the rest of us with all of our brokenness in this world.
It very much seemed to me – ever so strongly – that this is an analogy of the scene to be witnessed at the very gates of heaven, when we make our way to the Lord, and, may it please Him, we are admitted before His presence so as to offer Him humble thanksgiving, even as all the limitations of this world are taken away, both in body and in soul, so that, standing up and jumping for joy, we immediately fall to our knees in joyful reverence before Him and our Blessed Mother. Yes. This sight brought me profound joy, already thanking our Lord while in this world.
The “Common Good” citation isn’t in that clip, but in the Gospel of John 11:41-53 we read:
“Father, I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me.” And when he had said this, he cried out in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!” The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, “Untie him and let him go.” Now many of the Jews who had come to Mary and seen what he had done began to believe in him. But some of them went to the Pharisees and told them what Jesus had done. So the chief priests and the Pharisees convened the Sanhedrin and said, “What are we going to do? This man is performing many signs. If we leave him alone, all will believe in him, and the Romans will come and take away both our land and our nation.” But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing, nor do you consider that it is better for you that one man should die instead of the people, so that the whole nation may not perish.” He did not say this on his own, but since he was high priest for that year, he prophesied that Jesus was going to die for the nation, and not only for the nation, but also to gather into one the dispersed children of God. So from that day on they planned to kill him.”
Yes, I’m very happy that Jesus laid down His life for us, the Innocent for the guilty, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, but for Caiaphas to abuse his office and condemn the Innocent for the guilty was a great sin.
Caiaphas wanted to achieve a good end – civil peace in the country – but at the cost of doing something evil. That will actually only make things worse, the good end never being obtained. Witness the disintegration of all things and the destruction of Jerusalem like none other.
Saint Paul condemns doing something evil so as to achieve a good end (Romans 3:8):
“And why not do evil that good may come? — as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.”
People think that sophistries claiming that we are distanced from an evil action so that we may rightly partake of the good end, but ignoring that that good end was wrought by an evil means are rightly condemned.
Covid 19 vaccines like Johnson and Johnson / Janssen, AstraZeneca, Pfizer / BioNTech, Moderna have directly, purposely aborted healthy children so as to obtain a good end, whether developing or testing their vaccines or both on human beings executed exactly for this purpose, tested to be healthy, tested to make sure all their organs were fully developed.
To enjoy the good end of the vaccine is to mock these human beings for your convenience.
And don’t think that this is all expedient for the common good. Society will disintegrate all the more into hell.
HERE’S THE POINT: Doing something that will hurt someone so as to benefit the common good refers to things pertaining to individuals, not to those persons themselves. Thus, an airport might be built even if a particular farmer doesn’t like it, as long as he is compensated justly. But the farmer himself cannot be directly executed in order for some project to benefit you.
Those pro-life people who promote the common good to be brought about by any vaccines obtained by the direct execution of individuals are actually pro-abortion, pro-death, anti-God, anti-neighbor.
Jesus says: “What you have done to the least of these you have done to me.” Are you going to slash Mary open and experiment on Jesus? No? But you glibly think you are clever in getting yours, murdering the image of God for your own benefit?
THE SITUATION: If an employee of Vatican City refuses to be “vaccinated” against Covid-19 without provable health reasons for that refusal, penalties might well include “the interruption of the work relationship.” In other words, they might well be terminated. To be consistent, Pope Francis would have to have “vaccination” imposed on bishops and priests throughout the world, and if they refuse, they should to be dismissed from the clerical state, that is, terminated. After all, it’s too easy to harass the laity. So, clergy should be the first to be sent into the darkest of existential peripheries.
Yours truly is one priest who will not be “vaccinated”. There’s no way anyone can force me to do this. Over my dead body. This is a moral issue, but one which is based on one’s knowledge about the “science” involved, on one’s knowledge about the assassinations of human beings in utero for the convenience of someone else. Or didn’t you know that these “medical devices” as they are more properly called were started from or tested on aborted human beings?
ADDRESSING POPE FRANCIS PERSONALLY:
Go ahead, Pope Francis! Show your worst! I would rather go to heaven than submit to your bullying.
You say, “It’s better for one person to die than that a whole nation perish.”
Jesus says, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world only to lose or forfeit his soul?”
You say, “It’s better for one person to die than that a whole nation perish.”
But Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ and the little ones in the womb are also the members of the Body of Christ, and Jesus says, “What you done to the least of these you have done to me.”
And, in solidarity, I am that aborted baby, Pope Francis. That’s how I am your Missionary of Mercy.
Herod wanted all the children to die in Bethlehem because that would give him a feeling of power. What are you doing, Pope Francis? Are you distancing yourself from those human beings that were aborted for your convenience. “It happened before today!” You won’t be able to avoid them at the Judgment. They will be there to accuse you of their murder. All of eternity will be right in front of you. Are you saying that you would run up to Mary with a machete and have Jesus ripped out of her womb for development or testing of a “vaccine” for your convenience?
Oh, I forgot, you got the vaccine already, so, I guess we know the answer to that question.
This world is no longer our home. We are in exile here. We must look to the things of heaven, true love of God AND love of neighbor, also the little ones in the womb.
All you really going to countenance that people working in Vatican City will be terminated because they want to follow their informed conscience and NOT get the “vaccine”? Why don’t you do it right? Start with the clergy. Start with me. Go ahead and forcibly dismiss me from the clerical state against my will. Be the Promethean self-absorbed neo-Pelagian! It will be a badge of honor that I will be happy to wear to the gates of heaven, you know, out of respect for the little ones of Jesus’ little flock.
And I will still be a priest forever.
I will not compromise. I love Jesus and His little flock.
Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir. Amen.
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.
“What you have done to the least of these, you’ve done to me” – Jesus.
Witnessing to Jesus by respecting the least among us, children in the womb, from conception until natural death, demonstrating the goodness and kindness of Jesus by protecting them as best we can according to our circumstances, is witness in which we must all participate if we are to make it to heaven.
Jesus hesitated not for a nanosecond to be so entirely in solidarity with the least of His little flock that He Himself was murdered.
The U.S. Constitution has been trashed in practice. Our Law Enforcement and Military are trashed. There are double standards, one for the bully State, the atheistic Marxist Dems, another for “the people”, “the proletariat”, who jobs are taken away, whose wages are gutted by demographics, by violence and arson and looting that is encouraged. In the midst of this, the ongoing slaughter of millions of innocents in the wombs of their “mothers” continues not only unabated, but now funded.
The great Father Altman once studied the percentages of Catholics who voted for the most pro-abortion administration ever over against the most pro-life administration ever. After weeks of study and agonizing over math, he reported his answer: Zero. There is no Catholic who voted for the most pro-abortion administration ever because anyone voting for unlimited death mongering is NOT Catholic.
Of course, anyone standing up for life, for the least among us, for Jesus, makes him- or herself a target for the new Marxist death squads. If you’ve been watching the legislation being proposed in the all-Dem Congress you know what I mean. If you’ve been watching the Executive Orders being signed by Wuhan Joe, you know what I mean.
So many of my fellow (Arch)Bishops and priests are playing friends with this world game, friends with the prince of this world (Satan) mind-game: “We’re nice! We think you’re nice! Be nice to us!” That never works. You just go straight to hell.
I remember the account provided by Archbishop Fulton Sheen, when the American soldiers were liberating the death camps. It would be quite impossible to face the evil rendered in those camps, the horrid scene of bulldozed mountains of corpses, but then a soldier saw one of those corpses moving at the very top of such a heap of corpses. It was a young lady who was relatively healthy. The soldier asked her what she was doing there. In incisive Jewish fashion, she answered with a question: “How can I live when so many of my people are dying?”
How can we keep silent when so many of the least among us are being murdered?
“You’re playing politics, Father George! You need to be cancelled!” Yep. That would be right in the eyes of this demonic world from which our Lord has come to save us.
No, really, you gotta watch the whole thing. Follow into the crescendo. Just a few minutes. It’s like you can see the fiery Holy Spirit. YES!!!
This priest IS the prophet Nathan thundering against King David (Biden):
“YOU ARE THE MAN!”
Who is this guy and where? I so want to reach out to him to thank him, bless him, encourage him.
Update: whenever I myself want a bit of encouragement, I’ll listen to this.
PS: As Father said, we want Joe to convert.
PS: I’m listening to this again… ;-)
PS: Full confession: I’m listening to this yet again! I love it! Thank you, Father.
The following was King David’s response. We pray that Joe Biden will follow.
[Psalm 51:1 For the leader. A psalm of David, 2 when Nathan the prophet came to him after his affair with Bathsheba.]
Have mercy on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant compassion blot out my offense. Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me. For I know my offense; my sin is always before me. Against you alone have I sinned; I have done such evil in your sight That you are just in your sentence, blameless when you condemn. True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother conceived me. Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my inmost being teach me wisdom. Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me whiter than snow. Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt. A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit. Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your holy spirit. Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing spirit. I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return to you….
Biden wants to get rid of conscience protections and free exercise of religion exceptions to the Department of Health and Human Services abortifacient insurance mandate. Not only will groups like the Little Sisters of the Poor be obliged to provide coverage for contraception, abortifacient drugs, and sterilizations under their health care plans, but also celibate Catholic priests.
Imagine that. Say I don’t comply by forcing ecclesiastical superiors to remove me from their insurance provision which will very likely comply with the HHS mandate that was stripped of conscience protections. The response might perhaps be that I would then be judged to be a liability for them if I didn’t have insurance. They would encourage me to go get my own insurance if I could find one that wouldn’t sponsor immoral practices hahaha.
Every human life is a gift to the world. Whether born or unborn, young or old, healthy or sick, every person is made in the holy image of God. The Almighty Creator gives unique talents, beautiful dreams, and a great purpose to every person. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we celebrate the wonder of human existence and renew our resolve to build a culture of life where every person of every age is protected, valued, and cherished. This month, we mark nearly 50 years since the United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. This constitutionally flawed ruling overturned State laws that banned abortion, and has resulted in the loss of more than 50 million innocent lives. But strong mothers, courageous students, and incredible community members and people of faith are leading a powerful movement to awaken America’s conscience and restore the belief that every life is worthy of respect, protection, and care. Because of the devotion of countless pro-life pioneers, the call for every person to recognize the sanctity of life is resounding more loudly in America than ever before. Over the last decade, the rate of abortions has steadily decreased, and today, more than three out of every four Americans support restrictions on abortion.
Since my first day in office, I have taken historic action to protect innocent lives at home and abroad. I reinstituted and strengthened President Ronald Reagan’s Mexico City Policy, issued a landmark pro-life rule to govern the use of Title Ten taxpayer funding, and took action to protect the conscience rights of doctors, nurses, and organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor. My Administration has protected the vital role of faith-based adoption. At the United Nations, I made clear that global bureaucrats have no business attacking the sovereignty of nations that protect innocent life. Just a few months ago, our Nation also joined 32 other countries in signing the Geneva Consensus Declaration, which bolsters global efforts to provide better healthcare to women, protect all human life, and strengthen families.
As a Nation, restoring a culture of respect for the sacredness of life is fundamental to solving our country’s most pressing problems. When each person is treated as a beloved child of God, individuals can reach their full potential, communities will flourish, and America will be a place of even greater hope and freedom. That is why it was my profound privilege to be the first President in history to attend the March for Life, and it is what motives my actions to improve our Nation’s adoption and foster care system, secure more funding for Down syndrome research, and expand health services for single mothers. Over the past 4 years, I have appointed more than 200 Federal judges who apply the Constitution as written, including three Supreme Court Justices — Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett. I also increased the child tax credit, so that mothers are financially supported as they take on the noble task of raising strong and healthy children. And, recently, I signed an Executive Order on Protecting Vulnerable Newborn and Infant Children, which defends the truth that every newborn baby has the same rights as all other individuals to receive life-saving care.
The United States is a shining example of human rights for the world. However, some in Washington are fighting to keep the United States among a small handful of nations — including North Korea and China — that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks. I join with countless others who believe this is morally and fundamentally wrong, and today, I renew my call on the Congress to pass legislation prohibiting late-term abortion.
Since the beginning, my Administration has been dedicated to lifting up every American, and that starts with protecting the rights of the most vulnerable in our society — the unborn. On National Sanctity of Human Life Day, we promise to continue speaking out for those who have no voice. We vow to celebrate and support every heroic mother who chooses life. And we resolve to defend the lives of every innocent and unborn child, each of whom can bring unbelievable love, joy, beauty, and grace into our Nation and the entire world.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 22, 2021, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. Today, I call on the Congress to join me in protecting and defending the dignity of every human life, including those not yet born. I call on the American people to continue to care for women in unexpected pregnancies and to support adoption and foster care in a more meaningful way, so every child can have a loving home. And finally, I ask every citizen of this great Nation to listen to the sound of silence caused by a generation lost to us, and then to raise their voices for all affected by abortion, both seen and unseen.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-one, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fifth.
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.
Below is a screen shot of Google’s totally dishonest YouTube presentation, claiming, falsely, that the Associated Press is supreme judge certifying election results with a “SHOW ME” button, which only presents deep-state mass media idiocy:
Google’s proclamation of “robust safeguards” do not refer to the integrity of elections and results but to the instantaneously manipulatable Dominion voting machines (which were manufactured to be easily manipulatable imnsho), the relegating of observers in back of boarded up windows, the commanded ignoring of diverse signatures, of no signatures, of dead people voting, of non-citizens voting, the counting of tranches of thousands of mail-in ballots appearing out of nowhere long after the election even 100% of which were for Joe Biden, the even violent intimidation, on and on, and on and on, and on and on…
Dear President Trump, I agree with you. The 2020 presidential election was rigged and rigged against you, against the country, against me, for I voted for you (and I can say that as a priest as it is after the election, right?).
Dear President Trump, you are my president now, and whatever happens in future, you’re still my president. Oh, and just to say, if the AG is going to be Kamala’s relative, I had better say this, just in case he tries to throw me in prison for sedition: When I say that Trump will still be my president, I could be referring to an endearing emotion, right?
I could be referring to 2024, right? I’m guessing if Harris-Biden gets in, there will be an introduction of the guillotine for the 74 million+ who voted for Trump, you know, because it is all about being enlightened like the low information people proclaiming liberté, égalité, fraternité. They are right about all that liberté, égalité, fraternité, but exclusively only for the children of hell. Recall the assault, rape, murder, arson, looting and violence against innocent citizens, against law enforcement and firefighters and emergency medical responders in Democrat controlled cities. Get it?
Having said that – and I’m no attorney – I’ll add that while it is felony for an individual to commit voter fraud I believe (not a legal term) that it is traitorous to arrange massive voter fraud. A coup d’état, violent or not, even just attempted, is an act of treason is it not? And we know what the penalty is for that, right?
Having said that, I add that I myself publicly challenged the “American Community Survey” of the “U.S. Census Bureau” of the “Department of Commerce”, and that public challenge, because public, could be considered sedition, right? And we know what the penalty is for that, right? Touché. But I do go on…
There is an honest Judge who is not under control of the traitors of these United States of America, an honest Judge, God Himself, in whom we trust: He will come judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, including those who think they are presently powerful in their lack of honesty, their lack of integrity, their lack of patriotism.
Let me spell all that out:
Election fraud is an act of hate against God. These fraudsters voted God out of their party, and they will lie, cheat and do whatever they have to do to get their party “in” so as to make sure God is “out,” so as to make sure there that the unalienable right to the free exercise of religion is removed from the Constitution.
Election fraud is an act of hate against neighbor. It cancels individuals in their tens of millions.
Election fraud is an act of hate against the military who have served and have given their lives that we might be free to have free and fair elections for a government which is to be of, for and by the people.
Election fraud is an act of hate against law enforcement in this election, as one side supports a Constitutional Republic and the Rule of Law while the other wants to defund and even eliminate police, and even endanger them, mortally, because of policies designed to bring harm to them.
Election fraud is an act of hate against children in this election, as one side is all about protecting life from conception while the other side is all about death for all, all the time: kill the children they scream, both inside and just outside the womb.
Election fraud is an act of hate against the elderly, as is proven by the promise of these fraudsters to once again kill off the Little Sisters of the Poor who care for the elderly, just because the Little Sisters won’t assist in killing off the littlest of Jesus’ brethren, just conceived in the womb, with abortifacient chemicals: they won’t provide “insurance” coverage to their workers that would ensure this type of murder. And thus the elderly and the dying would be thrown out onto the street to die of exposure just like aborted children who survive. This election fraud is about the willful murder of millions of Americans.
Election fraud is an act of hate against me because I voted for POTUS Trump and I don’t like that I have been cancelled as a citizen in good standing by those who committed and are still committing election fraud in their destruction of evidence, in judging that tranches of thousands of votes mostly for Trump enough to sway an election are irrelevant, in judging that tranches of votes received after the election even 100% of which are for Biden are relevant, etc. and so forth and so on.
This guy is as big as the palm of your hand. People get scared of such large spiders which can jump you from a distance and give you a very painful bit. They are called Hunter Spiders. But this is a distraction, of course, so as not to recognize that there is another beast round about, also called Hunter. I’ve seen him on my phone as a feature news story on FoxNews. No one else much is covering that story much.
This fellow is also as big as the palm of your hand. His visage was already published in these pages. Happy he’s sticking around. Some are also scared of such beasts as they also can give you a fierce bite, like they are chomping your fingertips right off. But they are fun to watch and eat nasties. But people are afraid so that they can be distracted from other beasts who are preying on us, those politicos who want to encourage abortion and infanticide in numbers in these USA of 20,000 a week, half of those on any given Saturday alone.
It’s like the lust to find life in the universe outside of ourselves when we can’t even find life in the womb of a human mother. Sigh. People who vote for such death, letting themselves be distracted by the benevolent beasts of nature so as not to see the real beasts in the political world. I see them on my phone as well, all featured as news stories on FoxNews. Sigh.
Early machine voting is at the county electoral office across from the court house and police station in Murphy NC. The workers and many volunteers there (always friendly, always competent, always well organized) were all so very friendly.
I had a sample ballot with me (which was exact, by the way), and, when I entered, I received a baggy with an “I VOTED 2020” sticker in it. I taped that to the back window of the vehicle. I once made the mistake of peeling off the backing and sticking that to Sassy the Subaru. It’s almost impossible to remove. So, just packing tape.
The baggy also had a really nice pen, with which I signed an affidavit that I’m me and do live at my address. The other “pen” you see above is actually a stylus to use on the touch screen on the voting machine itself. I just used my knuckle since I’m a knucklehead. The screens are cleaned before and after every single vote. A mask is also provided. Great! Now I have an extra one for visits to the aged and infirm. Yay!
In other words, it’s all made super easy.
Sometimes the line to vote goes around the building and down the parking lot of the bank nearby. I was lucky and was next up inside the election office. I only had to wait in the lobby 30 seconds or so. The machines were all busy inside and by the time I got out the line was forming once again.
The election officials love it. They are averaging about 900 votes a day in that one early voting office. This is many times over all other elections ever. It’s historic participation in this county already weeks before election day.
Voting in this most important election made me happy. You might say that secular things like this shouldn’t be a source of happiness for me, but I’ll tell you this: voting in this election in these USA is a moral imperative before God in that the moral issues are absolutes. We have to stop pro-abort maniacs. We have to stop the promised persecution of the Catholic Church. Etc. So, yes, I did my part in this small but extremely important way and I placed this action before God. I was very happy before God. Yes.
Oh, I guess the littlies in the womb were forgotten about in “Fratelli tutti”, you know, that “paper” put out by Pope Francis. I guess the littlies are not our brothers and sisters. I guess we can ignore them, or, I know, just to show we are all friends and everything, I guess we can just take a chainsaw and have them ripped out of their mothers’ wombs, you know, because women, like my mom, who had four kids, are just “rabbits” anyway. Remember that? /// Off sarcasm.
Something like 1,500,000,000 of our little brothers and sisters have been ripped to shreds around the world in the last 50 years.
But I exaggerate! Abortion is mentioned in “Fratelli tutti!”
“24. We should also recognize that “even though the international community has adopted numerous agreements aimed at ending slavery in all its forms, and has launched various strategies to combat this phenomenon, millions of people today – children, women and men of all ages – are deprived of freedom and forced to live in conditions akin to slavery… Today, as in the past, slavery is rooted in a notion of the human person that allows him or her to be treated as an object… Whether by coercion, or deception, or by physical or psychological duress, human persons created in the image and likeness of God are deprived of their freedom, sold and reduced to being the property of others. They are treated as means to an end… [Criminal networks] are skilled in using modern means of communication as a way of luring young men and women in various parts of the world”. [[ Slavery is… ]] A perversion that exceeds all limits when it subjugates women and then forces them to abort. [[ Slavery is… ]] An abomination that goes to the length of kidnapping persons for the sake of selling their organs. Trafficking in persons and other contemporary forms of enslavement are a worldwide problem that needs to be taken seriously by humanity as a whole: “since criminal organizations employ global networks to achieve their goals, efforts to eliminate this phenomenon also demand a common and, indeed, a global effort on the part of various sectors of society”.
So, what is condemned is not abortion freely chosen, which is pretty much 100% of abortions. What is condemned is anecdotal abortion in conditions of slavery, which amount to about 0.00001% of abortions. And that is only condemned, I guess, because, it is thought, I guess, in context, that the woman’s “right-to-choose” isn’t being respected, and that’s sacred, I guess, so that if she decides to abort, it’s all good. Bull shit.
To call all this “Fratelli tutti” (brothers and sisters all) is a load of bull shit. It is hurtful to the Church, to humanity.
Outrageous: Biden said there should be a total lockdown, which also and in the very first place means no worship of God in church, not now, not – perhaps – until nearing 2022. But, by the way, all places that have done this have suffered crippling “second waves” which are not second waves, but that which has exaggeratedly put off the inevitable. It is a given that Covid-19 is so contagious that everyone in the world will get it. It’s but a matter of sooner or later, flattening the curve over time, not getting rid of the curve. Graham County in my parish had a horrific total lockdown enforced, ironically, with someone actively with Covid. Now they have a zillion cases. Almost all those are no-symptoms-cases. What’s the point of the no-worship policy, whether Joey, given his mental status, knows it or not? Just that: Damned be all who worship God. This is anti-Catholic, anti-God.
Outrageous: Joe Biden said police should be trained to shoot the legs of perps. This is entirely ignorant because you’re actually very likely to survive a hit to the torso, even multiple hits, but a hit to the leg will more than likely hit a major artery and you will bleed out immediately. Also, you’re extremely likely to miss the often toothpick sized legs of druggy perps, causing risk of ricochets and risk to the officer who has now lost the time he needed to end the threat. And every second can save lives. This whole thing is anti-human.
Outrageous: Joe Biden said that if an 8 year old boy says that wants to be a girl that should not be questioned and he should be given the “medical” treatment needed to bring that about. This attacks the rights of parents. This attacks the rights of the child as it is a denial that the child is a minor, meaning, specifically, that the child is defenseless against the unjust aggression of societal brainwashing regarding matters of sex. Activists will go after religious families first, as always. The parents will pay the bills. The children will simply be removed if they are “denied” “treatment.” This should preclude his election to the presidency.
But mostly outrageous: Joe Biden and his “running mate” hotly, hotly desire the status quo, that 2,000 kids every weekday are ripped to shreds in their mothers’ wombs (10,000) and another 10,000 every Saturday (20,000 a week) by way of procured abortion. Joe Biden wants you to pay for it. Joe Biden wants you to pay for abortion right across the world. I’d like to take the faces of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and every single person who votes for them and mash their faces into the corpses of – what is it? – something like 63,000,000 procured abortions in these USA since 1973. Abortion has always been pushed among the black and brown, putting clinics in their neighborhoods, reducing, mind you, non-white populations by something like 25%. This is racist genocide. Yep. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. This is all a direct attack on the image of God. It is anti-God, anti-human.
Meanwhile: The Cyrus of our own day is the most pro-free-exercise-of-religion non-Catholic politician in the history of the world. The Cyrus of our own day is the most pro-life non-Catholic politician in the history of the world. Et cetera on a thousand points.
So, who is this priest going to endorse do you think? Oh, right, I forgot. I can’t go there. I won’t tell you who to vote for. I’ll just tell you, as a priest, that if you vote for one you risk going straight to hell. If you vote for the other, you vote against that hell.
I can’t wait to get threatened canonical litigation from… from… I think it’s a Catholic… I think it’s a Religious… in Charlotte… As it is, I didn’t endorse anyone, did I? No.
I can’t wait to get threatened canonical litigation from… from… an ex-Catholic, an attorney of some kind, out in crazy California. He actually dropped a comment a while back. But, as it is, I didn’t endorse anyone, did I? No.
On behalf of Joe Biden: I think he suffering elder-abuse, that he is manipulated by others. Is that what you are voting for in voting for Joe Biden? Yes. Yes, it is. Joe Biden voters and dismissive of God and dismissive of neighbor. And who is your neighbor? Also that little guy and little gal in the womb. Save them. You must.
Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that seemed to be pro-Trump, and so she was forthwith fired from her job.
Apparently, some USCCB staffer made a remark that was pro-Kamala Harris and nothing happened whatsoever.
The USCCB is just a bunch of pro-abortion fanatics, bullying others with their blatant partisan pro-death politics into making sure that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are elected.
That’s all to be expected. Jesus picked Judas also because He wanted to make sure that we knew that He understood. He suffered this kind of betrayal of Life.
Still, what surprises me is that there are apparently good Catholics who insist that the hypocritical policies of the USCCB are to be followed. Count me out. This priest is not going to be politically correct with those who promote the killing of the image of God in the womb. Ain’t gonna happen.
Some wimps say: “I was forced into compromise, betrayal, sin.” That is simply never true. What do any of us have to lose for continuing to do all that is righteous and just and merciful? Our lives? Pfft! We will gain our lives in heaven because of our witness to Jesus who is Life.
“Father Byers, you don’t understand! You’re supposed to hold your own life in this world as precious, to be protected at any cost! Don’t witness to Jesus! Bow down to the pro-aborts! We do!”
Yuck. I would rather be tortured to death.
“Father Byers, you don’t understand! We have power! We can have you shut down, silenced. We’ll call you an apostate, a schismatic, an excommunicate – splutter splutter – unless you promote our pro-abort candidates, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. We’ll make sure you are removed from you parish, thrown on the street, a wanderer, accursed. We’ll make sure to make your life HELL!”
Pfft! Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn said that he was not afraid of any torture to which he was subjected. Rather, he was afraid that, while looking into the eyes of his torturer he saw no conscience. But I say that we are not to fear even such as that – and I have seen that in the eyes of pro-abort politician-torturers of the unborn that zero-conscience thing. Instead, we are to look into the eyes of Christ Jesus and see that He has seen the zero-conscience thing in all, from Adam until the last man is conceived, and we are to see that Jesus was not afraid even of that. Better, when Jesus’ eyes close in death (like the Master, so the disciple), let’s look into the eyes of Jesus’ Immaculate Mother so as to see that she also was not afraid:
