Be the Same’ After Colon Operation

Original Article

ROME — Luis Badilla, editor of the semi-official Vatican news aggregator Il Sismografo, said Wednesday that Pope Francis’ health situation is “severe” and when he returns from hospital he “will never be the same again.” In his sobering blog post, Badilla declares that journalists and commentators are not doing the pope any favors when they downplay the seriousness of his illness. There is a very significant detail that many “underestimate, ignore, or manipulate,” he writes, namely that “the disease that has affected Pope Francis is severe and degenerative” and “could also be chronic.”

So...Is the Truth the Pope had Colon Cancer and had most of his Colon removed? Why can't they just say so? Maybe they didn't get all the Cancer, or it has spread. I don't understand why they can't tell their people what is going on. Is it time to get a new Pope? Maybe someone from Sweden this time?

Depending on how much of the colon they removed, there won't be much left of the false pope. Absolutely, BBB (bring back Benedict).

I will continue to pray for him - for his salvation and that the confusion he's brought to the papacy will not survive him. Rome is in terrible disarray. Only a return to the primordial message of Christ and His sacrifice will save even a remnant. Long ago Benedict predicted a smaller church. Pray that you are included.

Marine Corps General David H.

Dr. Kobi Haviv is not just any doctor. He’s world-renowned for his work on Covid-19 treatments, particularly aiding patients who have acute respiratory ailments as a result.

OBERLIN — Investors bought $80 million in bonds last week to finance Oberlin College’s four-year geothermal energy conversion project. Following Stanford University, the Lorain County-based college is now the second higher education institution in the United States and third in the world to make use of Certified Climate Bonds for campus construction projects. The green financing avenue can only be used for projects that align with the Paris Climate Agreement’s goal of limiting global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius compared to temperatures before the age of industrialization.

If Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost gets his way, abortion rights will disappear in the Buckeye State and beyond. Yost didn’t specify his intention when he announced last week that he was joining 23 other Republican attorneys general in asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade when it decides a case challenging a Mississippi abortion law.(Snip) That could leave women without access to care they need or tempt them to risk potentially dangerous back-alley abortions. Abortion should be safe. It should be legal. And the decision to have one should be up to the pregnant women involved.

President Joe Biden is weighing vaccines mandates for interstate travel, according to the Associated Press (AP) on Thursday. “Still, while more severe [coronavirus] measures — such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 — have been discussed,” the AP writes, “the administration worried that they would be too polarizing for the moment.” For the time being, the White House seems content with shaming those who are unvaccinated, while demanding private companies mandate vaccinations for their employees. For instance, Biden told churchgoers April 1, they were being ungodly if they did not become vaccinated.

What are Biden’s CDC and FDA doing about it? Jack at the moment, to all appearances. I have no sense of how the catastrophic lightning fall of Afghanistan’s government will play with voters.
