LYON, France (LifeSiteNews) — Two Capuchin friars were arrested by police last month after attempting to set fire to two 5G antennas.

The two men later claimed they acted to protect the population from the harmful effects of 5G. 

In the night of September 15 to September 16, two friars from St. Francis, the friary of the Franciscans in Villié-Morgon near Lyon, France, were apprehended by police as they tried to set fire to a relay 5G antenna near the town of Ancy. Their names have not been published by the French media. 

The two men, aged 39 and 40, did not resist arrest and were immediately placed into police custody. They had also attempted to set fire to another antenna, this one near the town of Saint-Forgeux, the night before and, according to an eyewitness, managed to destroy the antennas’ electric meters, both of which were subsequently replaced. 

The two monks later appeared in front of a judge and were indicted for “vandalism and attempted arson”. According to the prosecutor, while acknowledging the facts, they confided in the judge that they had acted in order to “protect the population from the harmful effects of 5G.” The two men were placed under judicial supervision whilst awaiting their sentence.   

Gilles Dubessy, the mayor of Saint-Forgeux, found their actions strange. 

“It’s a little sad,” he said.

“Monks going after 5G like this really isn’t normal. I was surprised, especially considering the beauty of this location, with a chapel next door. It’s a pity,” he continued.

“This also caused momentary disruptions of the Orange and SFR networks.”

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:

  1. The vaccines are, themselves, unsafe. The WHO has already reported over 2.1M injuries related to COVID jabs, worldwide.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 superior of the friary said he was “astounded and saddened by the two fathers’ mistake.” 

However,  a spokesperson from the same friary who described the affair as “an isolated incident and a youthful mistake,” also agreed with the motives saying, “these [5G] waves are very detrimental to people’s health, and they wanted to act for the good of mankind.” 

Many suspect 5G could potentially be harmful and some scientists have expressed serious concerns regarding increasing exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs).  They fear that its long-term effects will include an increased cancer risk, cellular stress, genetic damages, and neurological disorders. 

However, the French Agency for Health & Safety recently indicated that “there is no proof of adverse health effects from exposure to sources of EMFs within the scope of current digital uses.”

The traditionalist Capuchin convent of Saint Francis in the town of Villié-Morgon is affiliated to the Society of Saint Pius X.  It is also home to Father Régis de Cacqueray, the former French District Superior of the Society of Saint Pius X, who recently called on Catholics to reject “criminal” COVID jabs in “courageous refusal” in a statement published in French Catholic review Civitas
