How about an all out effort to protect the unborn, starting with excommunicating the heretical politicians who champion abortion? Or an all out effort to uphold the sanctity of marriage? Or an all out effort rid the clergy of pedophiles?

FTA: "But the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said in December that it was “morally acceptable” to take vaccines using cell lines from aborted fetuses when other ones aren’t available." Sorry, but products tainted by abortion in never “morally acceptable.” I cannot think of saving my own life at the expense of a little girl who was conceived and born for the sole purpose of experimentation. I can't reconcile this one, and, if the German's were involved with the decisions, I doubt that Church teaching and ethics were considered much at all. Right now I'll take my chances with the therapeutics that have been very successful. Something is not right with this vaccine. Since when can ANY medication be universal? Totally safe for all ages and medical histories? I'm very afraid what the future will hold. We spent our entire Junior year in high school religion class on "Does the end ever justify the means?" Fr. Fidelis would have had fun dealing with us on "Do you take the vaccine promises to save the world, or not take it because it exploits aborted children?"

They don't get it. There was no need for "An all out effort to combat vaccine hesitancy" when it came to smallpox and polio. So, this effort makes people suspicious that something more is going on here.

It’s really suicide hesitancy. My friends brother, wife, and son all got the jab a few weeks ago and now they are all dead. Dead. Gone. You think the jab will “save” you from catching the flu and dying from it?! Go ahead and line up like sheep at the slaughter house and obey the government and the Pope. Or trust God and go away as far as you can in faith that the immune system he has created will protect you.

I see it as Mob Rule. The Government, the Media, and now the Church all pressuring us to COMPLY! I'm with Northcross (#1).... I would have a lot more 'faith' in the Church IF they had made an all-out effort to get rid of the Homosexual Pedophiles..... but instead they hid them and moved them around so that the Perps could abuse more kids. It's one thing to have some bad people in your organization, but when the organization hides them and hides how they abused kids, THAT is a crooked, corrupt, EVIL organization! As far as I am concerned, whatever 'moral high ground' the Church once had, they DESTROYED it through their own Weakness and Evil!

WELLINGTON — The Ohio Republican Party estimates 20,000 to 25,000 people attended the “Save America” rally Saturday. Lorain County Republican Party Chairman David Arredondo said he'd personally estimated about 20,000 people were in attendance at former President Donald Trump’s first rally since leaving office. Arredondo said state Party Chair Bob Paduchik confirmed 20,000 to 25,000 attended the event held near the Lorain County Fairgrounds. He said it was a significant number of people, given the nine day notice attendees had for the event. What other personality--former president, rock star or actor--could pull this kind of crowd together on a short notice?” Arredondo said.

They came from near and far--from New York to California, Michigan to Tennessee, Pennsylvania to Indiana--for the chance to see former President Donald Trump.

With the creation of June 19th ("Juneteenth") as a federal holiday, Democrats have one more claim to be the party of civil rights and equal opportunity for African Americans, though most Republicans also voted for the holiday. That claim has been promoted for decades by a compliant media, academia and high-profile politicians, but the facts say otherwise. From Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 to the mid-20th century, members of the Democratic Party, dominant in the South due to its opposition to civil and political rights for African Americans, were on the wrong side of civil rights.

Also, workers could not be fired as a result of refusing. The measure before the Republican-controlled House Health Committee has attracted multiple opponents of COVID-19 vaccines but goes further in addressing mandatory requirements for all vaccines, such as for the flu. "I believe in vaccines and scientific research. I also recognize that vaccination is a personal choice and that, for a variety of reasons, not all Ohioans can or want to receive vaccines," said Rep.

Those of Joe Biden’s public behaviors that align with classic dementia symptoms are escalating. In the past few days, he strongly exhibited two symptoms: A type of belligerence that’s a cover-up for confusion and memory loss and a paranoid fear of those in charge of him. I used to spend a lot of time in the company of doctors. What always fascinated me were the tales they told of dealing with patients with early-stage dementia. The most interesting point they made was that elderly people, so as not to lose face or admit their own fears, are superb at deflecting the questions aimed at assessing their cognitive skills and memory.

President Joe Biden asked federal agencies to work on “welcoming strategies that promote integration, inclusion, and citizenship,” through an executive order. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced Friday the agency’s plan to “breaking down barriers to U.S. citizenship” and promote naturalization for immigrants who are eligible. The federal campaign will actively recruit eligible immigrants and eliminate many naturalization rules that the Trump administration put in place so more people can apply.
