U.S. Military Archbishop Says Troops Should Be Allowed to Reject COVID-19 Vaccine

(U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Delano Scott)

The Archbishop for the Military Services says that troops should be able to refuse the Covid-19 vaccine on religious grounds. In a memo, Timothy P. Broglio said that troops that view the Covid-19 vaccine as a direct conflict with their religious beliefs due to how it is produced should be able to refuse the shot.

Townhall reports:

“The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines were tested using an abortion derived cell line,” the statement reads. “The Johnson & Johnson vaccine was developed, tested, and is produced, with abortion-derived cell lines. That vaccine is, therefore, more problematic. If it were the only vaccine available, it would be morally permissible, but the faithful Catholic is to make known his or her preference for a more morally acceptable treatment.”

Later on in the statement, Broglio added that “no one should be forced to receive a COVID-19 vaccine if it would violate the sanctity of his or her conscience,” and emphasized that choosing not to get the vaccine is a religious freedom that is protected by the First Amendment.

“The denial of religious accommodations, or punitive or adverse personnel actions taken against those who raise earnest, conscience-based objections, would be contrary to federal law and morally reprehensible,” Broglio continued in his statement. However, he notes that those who choose not to get vaccinated must “continue to act in charity for their neighbors and for the common good by undertaking means to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 through wearing face coverings, social distancing, undergoing routine testing, quarantining, and remaining open to receiving a treatment should one become available that is not derived from, or tested with abortion-derived cell lines.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced in August that the Covid-19 vaccine will be mandatory for all U.S. military members, the decision drew sharp criticism from Americans and lawmakers.

Anyone who thinks White Supremacy is bad, has not experienced Black Supremacy.
Try read White Girl Bleed A Lot. And Don’t Make the Black Boys Mad.
Today, however, White Americans, Asians, Hispanics are now experiencing BLM Supremacy in all its gory violence, is a Beginners’ introduction to Black Supremacy 101. It will get much worse if we do not define our too tolerant White Nation, and enforce it as such against all threats. USA is a White and Christian Nation shared by good Christian POC’s. As a Nation, all Americans are self governed to keep USA as a Constitutional Republic under our Christian God, with Freedom and Liberty for All American Citizens, that is, if we can keep it from the Mob-gansters!

It’s not about the vax. It’s all about control. Here’s what Kissinger said: “Once the herd accepts mandatory vaccinations it’s game over. They will accept anything – forcible blood or organ donation – “for the greater good.” We can genetically modify children and sterilize them – “for the greater good.” Control sheep minds and you control the herd. Vaccine makers stand to make billions. And many of you in this room are investors. It’s a big win-win. We thin out the herd and the herd pays us for extermination services…” – Henry Kissinger, speech to WHO Council on Eugenics, 02-25-09 The words of Brzezinski ring true: ‘It is now easier to kill 1 million People than to control them.’

I am surprised that people do not figure out what this administration is doing. The Congress, postal service, and others have been exempt so what does that tell you? They WANT to destroy this country and turn it all blue and socialirsm to keep power forever! Lies lies lies is all you hear. They want global power which means socialism. Look at what they have done which is absolutely nothing to help the US. All for illegals and foreign powers. Hmm, there is a word for that and we all know it.

This administration is probably the worst this country has ever had. However, that has absolutely nothing to do with this awful pandemic that hit the world. The timing sucked but when is it a good time for a pandemic. Although the vax wasn’t ready to go on Pres. Trump’s watch, he did order it to be done and even won the challenge as to when it would be ready. Shoot, they’ve been working on the vax since 2002 since SARS. As soon as available for him, he took the jab. Why can’t everyone else understand that this is necessary to overcome this pandemic QUICKLY. We’ve almost crossed the hump naturally since so many ignorant people did not wear their masks nor get the vax. Many have been exposed and are immune without even realizing it which is, of course, a good thing. However, this all could have been handled in the beginning of the year where everything could have been back to normal.

The vital necessity of the vaccinations should be critically examined, and not just religious objections. Compared to typical childhood diseases, which were nearly eliminated by vaccinations, COVID-19 has a very low mortality rate. Also, it also is not a prevention against getting the COVID.

But the most important reason for not having mandates is the very successful treatment by hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and some other drugs, that are effective. HCQ has been very successfully used by many doctors in treating COVID here, and some other countries have been using HCQ to greatly reduce the virus’ death toll, which is moderate at worst. There’s no reason why it wouldn’t do the same in the USA, except for His Medical Highness Fauci giving it a bad reputation by mis-stating its performance. We have learned that HCQ is too cheap for the huge profits gained from new processes, and Fauci has undermined himself so that should change. But the need for MANDATES is not supported by the facts.

Why do cell lines from aborted babies have to be used for developing and testing vaccines? Why can’t hens’ eggs or other non-human animal(or plant)sources, be used for this purpose?

Aborted chicken fetuses are a good choice for a chicken vaccine.
Humans ain’t no chickens.
If there were non-human animal(or plant)sources they would be be used for this purpose.
There will never be shortage aborted fetuses.
Spontaneous abortions will fill the need.

This particular Archbishop is correct that Religious Liberty is part of our Constitution. There are people who don’t believe in pharmaceuticals at all. There are naturopathic doctors who can treat patients with a whole diet and supplements without need of pharmaceuticals. This isn’t about protection because the mRNA vaccines are NOT true vaccines and not safe for a very large number who have suffered injury or death. It should be pulled off the market entirely. They have monoclonal vaccines which are safe and effective without the Death results or life injury from side effects. They’re draconian fascist demons who impose tainted vaccines on the general public. We didn’t fight a Revolutionary War for this kind of crappy imposition on our God given freedom of medicines to take whether a true vaccine or a therapeutic. Big Government is married to Big Pharma and they’re killing us.

As always, the Catholics can’t take a stand. Because there are fetal lines in those “vaccines” it is not moral to take them, and I agree with that among other reasons. But if there was only one “vaccine” then it would be moral. Hypocrisy at its finest. Not moral and then magically moral. Never mind they are bio weapons, not vaccines and that they are killing people….
