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.
Right vs Wrong, Good vs Evil appear to be muddied, ambiguous - or are they? As Christians, we are obligated to do our homework, to seek Truth always, and encourage one another, especially our young people, to do the same.
The Catholic university, home to prominent Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, decreed that abortion-tainted COVID-19 injections are required for undergraduate students and seminarians before returning to campus this month.
