Two hospitals have backtracked on hundreds rejected religious exemption requests for COVID vaccination requirements, in the wake of lawsuit threats and a recent legal victory for New York health care workers.
After originally protesting the abortion link in the COVID-19 vaccines, the US bishops have actually spun around to make themselves enforcers of coercive vaccination, using vaccines they were denouncing as immoral not even two years ago.
His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider has decided to offer a personalized affidavit affirming membership in the Confraternity of Our Lady of Fatima, which will help members to avoid abortion-tainted COVID-19 injections.
To decide imperiously that the conscience conflicted by the cooperation in ethically compromised vaccines is necessarily in error and opposed to authoritative teaching – in other words, to suppress the faculty of reason in others and replace it with own’s own – is the worst form of clericalism. It is spiritual abuse.
