News That Will Drive You to Drink

Happy Hour News

I just cannot say this loudly enough: if you think you know God’s ineffable plan, you will be disabused of this notion in the most public way possible:


Cardinal Burke is placed on ventilator days after testing positive for COVID-19

This asshole was preaching his anti-vaxxer message while on duty:

It is unclear whether Burke has received the vaccine, but speaking at the May 2020 Rome Life Forum, Burke said that “vaccination itself cannot be imposed, in a totalitarian manner, on citizens.” He also quoted groups that suggested that COVID-19 vaccines inject “a kind of microchip” that allow citizens to “be controlled by the state regarding health and about other matters which we can only imagine.”

The cardinal also said that “it is never morally justified to develop a vaccine through the use of the cell lines of aborted fetuses,” adding that the state “is not the ultimate provider of health. God is.”

I know I bang on this drum a lot, but it reminds me of the joke with the man on the roof during the flood who turns down all help waiting for Gawd to save him. We’ve got a miraculous vaccine, you’re on the roof: TAKE THE VACCINE, PUT ON THE MASKS.

      “…let us now pray the Rosary for him.”
      Ring around the rosary,
      A pocket full of posies
      Ashes, Ashes,
      We all fall down.

      And fuck him. Die, MoFo, die!

    God helps those who help themselves. God protected Noah and his family from the Great Flood, but THEY still had to build that big ass boat first. I have been vaccinated, I wear a mask and I social distance. That’s my ark. That is the ark we all need to get us through this.

    The weird thing here is that the Vatican is not anti-vaccine. It just goes to show you that the US Conference of Catholic Bishops is a subsidiary more of the GOP than of the Roman Catholic Church.

    God’s ineffable plan = God’s plan, which is immune from being effed.

    Burke is an established hero of the right-wingnut branch of Catholicism. I think it’s very likely he was never vaccinated.

    Ignorance all dressed up in god like robes is still ignorance.

    1) Pope Francis declares COVID vaccines morally acceptable.
    2) MAGA cardinals resist vaccination
    3) MAGA cardinals (nearly all of whom are over 65) earn martyrdom
    4) Pope Francis elevates new cardinals

    The Lord works in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform. Or maybe not so much.

    Given his attitude about the vaccine, I wonder if the cardinal is still pissed at Galileo figuring out the earth isn’t the center of the universe.

    Life begins at infection, and the coronavirus has a Right To Life. Burke is just being consistent. Or he was, until it began living in his body. Now he wants a vent like any other Republican.
