(LifeSiteNews) – In the Post-Vatican II Church of Nice, in the stereotypically friendly country of Canada, it seems the only sin a Catholic can commit is remaining unvaccinated.
While the Canadian House of Commons and Senate were unanimously passing a radical pro-LGBTQ bill that seeks to criminalize sharing biblical teaching and moral guidance about transgenderism and homosexuality, the Church in various parts of Canada seemed more concerned with making sure the faces of the faithful were veiled, and ensuring that every congregant has rolled up his sleeves in the name of science.
“Public Masses are open to the public!” reads the website for St. Basil’s Catholic Parish in Toronto.
“ALL VISITORS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED AGAINST COVID-19,” it adds directly beneath, seemingly incapable of acknowledging the irony.
The world, of course, has always been at odds with the authentic Catholic faith, and those who seek to uphold it. It is nothing new to face discrimination or persecution for being Catholic. In fact, great Saints and Our Lord Himself have shown us that even having your blood shed in defense of the faith is both an honor and, at times, a necessity.
However, there exists a strange situation in Canada (and almost certainly other countries), where the Church is no longer a place of refuge from the fallen world but a place that turns faithful Catholics into spiritual refugees. The timeless words of Sacred Scripture imploring us to “Be not afraid,” or some variation of that sentiment, has been warped by the Canadian Church into “Wear your mask, get your shot, and social distance—unless you want your grandma to die.”
While the modern Church continues to emphasize the need for dialogue with everyone including apostates and blasphemers, there seem to be only two groups who should be tolerated under no circumstances whatsoever: the unvaccinated Catholics and the Traditional Catholics (many of whom are also unvaccinated).
As Church attendance plummets, the once predominately Christian nation of Canada has various Catholic parishes in Newfoundland and Labrador, and now St. Basil’s in Toronto, publicly telling the faithful that if they do not receive one of the experimental, abortion-tainted COVID-19 injections, well, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is just not for them.
Even worse, priests, men who have taken vows of celibacy, who have given up their entire lives to the service of Holy Mother Church, have been told in various jurisdictions, including the Archdiocese of Toronto, that they need to take the shot, or be “subject” to testing, to continue their ministry.
At the start of the pandemic here in Canada, many dioceses, including where I lived at the time, closed churches. Further, and sadly not surprisingly, once reopened, they kept many dictatorial and anti-Catholic measures, such as barring parishioners from receiving communion on the tongue.
The dangerous ideas of Critical Race Theory (CRT) are being forced on students in public schools around the country.
This is wrong and parents have had enough! It's time to join them in saying "STOP!" to this harmful and racist propaganda.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which says "No to CRT" in public schools, and "Yes to parents' right" to strongly protest CRT.
But, what is CRT anyway and why is it so dangerous?
Critical Race Theory is a hateful system of indoctrination which teaches that one race is either superior or inferior to another race, and that the United States is inherently racist.
CRT is dangerous and hateful precisely because it teaches children who are not white to despise and envy white children simply because of their skin color. And, as a result, it also teaches white children to despise themselves simply because of the color of their skin.
CRT also erroneously teaches that American society is inherently racist, and that different, detrimental policies (like reparations for slavery and race-based pay scales) should be imposed on the population to redistribute wealth from whites to non-whites.
This type of racist/marxist propaganda should have NO place in public, taxpayer-funded schools!
And, thankfully, American parents of EVERY COLOR are raising their voices and ballots against it!
Indeed, parents understand the destructive ramifications of CRT and, despite outrageous threats from Biden's Justice Department to prosecute them, they have been strongly protesting CRT at school board meetings across the country!
And now, in the first test of its kind, a candidate who was campaigning hard against CRT just won the governorship of Virginia in a huge upset victory.
That's great news, but we now need to contact every state legislature about this crucial educational issue.
And, we need to DEMAND that they BAN Critical Race Theory from every public school in their states - both primary and high schools, and colleges!
Whereas advocates of CRT seem more intent on vengence than on teaching children of every race to respect everybody, regardless of skin color, American parents of every race understand that it is not the color of one's skin that matters, but the content of one's character (to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr.).
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition asking all state legislatures to BAN Crititical Race Theory from public schools in their respective states.

I was cognizant of the fact that there was corruption in the Church, and I had varying degrees of faith in the men entrusted to shepherd my soul, but either way, it was depressing to have my suspicions vindicated. Whether intentional or not, the message I received from the Church here in Canada through this cowardice was this: the secular world values the body over the soul, so to avoid political blowback, we do, too.
Politicians who support abortion can receive communion, and are welcomed into the Church with open arms. But if one were to object to benefiting from the murder of an unborn child, not for “life and death” health reasons (look at COVID’s mortality rate), but for the social convenience of being allowed into a restaurant under the new medical apartheid in Canada, well, they can wait in the parking lot.
The Post-Vatican II Church of Nice has heralded ecumenism as the sole dogma of the faith. Every religion is accepted, so-called interfaith dialogue is encouraged, and the Ten Commandments are now the Ten Suggestions.
But if one wants to adhere to the perennial Catholic faith, if one wants to avoid cooperation with abortion via the COVID vaccines, if one wants to have their face uncovered when they are in the presence of the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist, and forgive me, but if one wants to attend the Traditional Latin Mass, well, that cannot be tolerated.
The easy objection to my point-of-view is that I am prideful, that I am full of self-righteous indignation, but the truth is, without access to the Sacraments, without a courageous clergy to uphold the faith in these trying times, to push back against the diabolical disorientation in the world, I, and many others, are at risk of being damned.
