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:
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.
