(LifeSiteNews) — Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro said he will not get vaccinated because he already has the “highest immunization” after recovering from COVID-19 in July 2020.
Speaking to Jovem Pan Radio on Tuesday night, Bolsonaro told listeners he had looked at new studies and has decided against getting the shot. He had previously stated he would be “the last Brazilian” to get the abortion-tainted vaccine.
“I decided not to take the vaccine anymore. I’m seeing new studies … I already have the highest immunization. I am going to get the vaccine for what?” he asked. “It would be the same thing as playing $10 in the lottery to win $2. It doesn’t make sense.”
The president’s sentiments mirror those already expressed by medical experts like Dr. Peter McCullough, who told LifeSiteNews in August that “natural immunity is the best of all forms of immunity” and “under no circumstances” should a recovered patient get a COVID jab.
66-year-old Bolsonaro also mentioned vaccine passports during the interview, insisting freedom should be prioritized in cities that had introduced the coercive measure.
“For me, freedom comes before everything else. If a citizen doesn’t want to get vaccinated, that’s his right and that’s the end of it,” Bolsonaro said.
The Knights of Columbus in Quebec have apparently begun to pressurize and bully unvaccinated council members and officers who decline to take the COVID jab.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to the Quebec Knights of Columbus, urging the Catholic men's fraternal organization to reverse course and stop penalizing Knights who refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
According to a letter obtained by LifeSiteNews, the leaders of the Quebec State Council of the Knights have seemingly implemented the following restrictions on unvaccinated members: 1) Effective immediately, unvaccinated knights shall be refused access to meeting and social venues; and, 2) Effective November 15th, any officer not "fully vaccinated" shall be relieved of his duties.
If true (and, there is no reason to believe it is not accurate), this Quebec Knights' policy is not only deeply flawed, but also deeply disturbing.
Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that a Catholic may use his or her conscience to decide to licitly refuse vaccination.
And, while the Church is allowing Catholics to take these unethical vaccines because of the lack of an ethically produced and tested vaccine, it must noted that the Church IS AGAINST FORCED VACCINATION and vaccine mandates.
Therefore, it is difficult to fathom how a Catholic organization can penalize (and, in effect, try to coerce) Catholics to accept vaccines which have many morally and medically troubling aspects.
To start with, all COVID vaccines available to Knights Quebecois were either developed or tested using aborted fetal cell lines! This very fact should militate against penalizing Knights who cannot accept these jabs, in good conscience, as morally repugnant per se.
And, there are at least three other serious issues with the vaccines, namely:
- The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
- The vaccines do not effectively stop transmission, and, in fact, probably facilitate transmission by allowing a vaccinated person to carry a large viral load which they can then spread to vaccinated and unvaccinated, alike.
- It is unwise to take and promote vaccines which have not undergone sufficient testing (animal, and otherwise), and which have no track record for possible long-term negative complications. Whereas most vaccines have taken between six and ten years to be fully tested and approved, these COVID jabs have only been given for less than a year -- and so, we do not know what the long-term effects will be.
With these issues in mind, please SIGN and SHARE this petition which calls on the Quebec Knights of Columbus State Council to reverse the draconian restrictions being placed against unvaccinated Knights.
The Quebec Knights of Columbus should be prepared to make reasonable accommodations for those members and officers who have decided to refuse these unethical, untested and unsafe vaccines.
After signing, please take a few minutes to contact the Quebec Knights of Columbus to politely, but firmly, ask them to reverse this decision which could seriously impinge on their fellow Knights' ability to follow their consciences in relation to taking a COVID vaccine.

The president of Brazil, who ate pizza on a New York street last month after being turned away from a restaurant, was also refused entry to a Santos FC soccer match last week because he is not vaccinated, and pointed out during Tuesday’s interview that while he isn’t entirely against the shots, the demand that everyone get vaccinated seems to be financially motivated.
“I’m not against immunization. In December last year I signed a provisional decree for BRL 20 billion to buy it [vaccines] and now practically everyone has had at least the first dose,” he explained. “Now, demanding the vaccine, this feels like a market thing.”
