Religious-exemption only policies reveal the need for religion

You will read in the annals of our history that our fore-bearers from all lands on the earth came to the United States to practice their religions freely without undue interference from government. While true that people in chains could not have made that journey for religious freedom, nevertheless, the record shows that many people of African descent living in America today are the progeny of brave souls who fled oppression in their homelands and arrived at our shores intentionally seeking the refuge that lady Liberty has promised the suffering for the past two hundred years.

But we find ourselves at a time in America’s own history when lady Liberty’s arm is straining under the weight of freedom’s torch. While the torch itself is not heavy, her arms now bear an undue burden that has been piled upon her, ounce after ounce, by misfeasance and malfeasance of the people sworn to uphold her and by the multitudinous lies emanating from the press which has betrayed its sole duty to serve as scaffolding which props up her arm and ensures her flame continues to burn bright.

By constant lies, obfuscations, fearmongering and distractions, our press has climbed onto her arm and at this very moment is throwing buckets of water onto her flame, doing its best to serve its masters of the World Economic Forum, who in 2020 alone earned trillions of dollars by keeping the people locked up at home enslaved to fear of a virus that is in fact no deadlier than the flu.

One of our formerly great publications has the motto, “Democracy dies in darkness.” With the year 2020 in hindsight, we now have 2020 vision. We now see clearly that such is the goal of our press: the death of our democracy. Their well-documented lies and misrepresentations attest to the fact that their purpose now is to benight the world so that our beloved Republic will die, and we will all live in the darkness that the oligarchic collectivists behind the scenes of power love.

We can interpret the events of 2020 in no other way. America’s democracy is on life support due to the proliferation of Covid-19 propaganda. Lady Liberty now gasps under the weight we have heaved upon her by ignoring the original reason we came to America’s shores in the first place: to worship God as our consciences command us!

To do otherwise is to live in slavery.

The current administration–which entered into power under such suspicious circumstances that anyone who had grown up under the light of freedom’s torch and whose eyes were adjusted to the light of truth would scoff at conferring on the one who now occupies the White House the title of President–does not seem to think we should have that right anymore. Instead, the one now called president believes that chains are freedom and that freedom is slavery.

Every action this administration has taken since January proves this to be true. Particularly these two actions:

  • Biden has removed the Hyde Amendment, thereby turning the formerly patriotic duty of paying ones taxes into an example of what the Catholic church might call “material cooperation with evil.”
  • By pushing local governments to shut down and to mandate masks and vaccines, Biden has pushed the Federal government into areas of influence where the federal government has no rightful place, thereby offending an important social teaching of my church called the “principal of subsidiarity.”

It is on these two doctrines that one can build a case for a religious exemption to the poisonous death shots, although I feel no religious exemption should be required and that non-believers of good will deserve the right to object solely based on rights of conscience guaranteed to them by our Constitution. The blatant abuse of power on full display should be enough justification for any free-thinking individual to simply say no to this act of governmental interference in our God-given rights to autonomy. By allowing for only religious and medical exemptions from the vaccine mandates, those in power are admitting that they do not care about reason, science, and dialogue. They care only about their own reasons and their own religion, called scienceism. Their mantra is “listen to the science…as long as it’s the science we declare is valid.” If you listen to any expert that contradicts the dogma of the tyrants, you will be censored.

Given this situation, it would be wise for every conscientious objector who is left without a defense from the poison death shots, to become religious again. Here is a religious argument:

Material cooperation with evil

It is not possible for me to take any of the shots now available for Covid without going against my conscience in at least two ways.

First, by getting any of the three shots, I would be assenting to the lie that these shots are safe, effective and necessary. When there are readily available treatments to combat a disease in an effective, safe and cost effective way, it is morally reprehensible to treat that disease via ineffective, dangerous and costly methods just so that we may better line the pockets of the pharmaceutical company executives who have deep ties to the multi-billion-dollar abortion industry and who kowtow, along with our press, to the demands of their WEF masters.

Secondly, both the Moderna and Pfizer experimental shots, which have already killed an estimated 50,000 people in the United States alone1, are tainted with the death of babies torn from their mothers’ wombs.

I offer here an explanation of what that means:

“The most prominent cell line, [used for testing] called HEK 293, comes from an abortion performed in the 1970’s…HEK stands for human embryonic kidney. To harvest a viable embryonic kidney for this purpose, sufficiently healthy children old enough to have adequately-developed kidneys must be removed from the womb, alive, typically by cesarean section, and have their kidneys cut out. This must take place without anesthesia for the child, which would lessen the viability of the organs. Instead of being held, rocked, and comforted in the time intervening between their birth and their death, they have organs cut out of them alive.” 2 The Johnson and Johnson vaccine is, according to certain Bishops of the Catholic church, even more closely related to abortion because Johnson & Johnson used aborted fetal cells to grow the virus that is used in its creation.3

Even if the Covid vaccines were safe and effective, the theoretical benefit that our lying press attributes to them would not make up for the deaths of the babies whose lives were lost and whose cells were stolen. It is my deeply held religious belief backed up by consistent Catholic teaching that we cannot kill others simply because we think we might be able to make others well or improve the quality of life for others. We are all about the common good, NOT the greater good. The ends do not justify the means.

And in this case it is abundantly clear that the abortion-tainted vaccines are nowhere near justifying the deaths they are dependent upon. These so-called vaccines are proven to be only 39% effective against the Delta Variant. Cheap well-known medicines free of any stain of abortion have a higher success rate. I am talking about HCQ, Ivermectin, Vitamin D, Zinc, Budesinide, etc. Even the costly monoclonal antibodies that the morally compromised pharmaceutical companies have created are probably effective and less entwined with the issue of abortion.

Principle of Subsidiarity

“One of the key principles of Catholic social thought is known as the principle of subsidiarity. This tenet holds that nothing should be done by a larger and more complex organization which can be done as well by a smaller and simpler organization. In other words, any activity which can be performed by a more decentralized entity should be.”

At no time in history has this principle proven to be more prescient than during the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet at no time in American history have we seen this principle more challenged and neglected. The scientific community, the medical community, the government, the press, and the oligarchs who fund and manipulate these organizations have conspired together to misinform and to force all peoples to respond to the Covid virus in exactly the same way: Mask up. Social distance. Get an experimental Vaccine that could present serious health consequences months to years after injection.

Many state and local governments do not want to subject their citizens to this form of tyranny. They may believe in scientific research that contradicts the CDC and the aforementioned organizations. I believe it is their right derived from “Nature’s God” to administer their own dictates at a local level. And in the end, the world will be better off because it will be able to learn from the diversity of reactions and responses to the virus which response was the best.

Our fore-bearers came to this country to practice their religion. My religion, Catholicism, demands of me that I offer my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God. It is for this reason I continually fight my lusts and natural inclinations towards laziness and debauchery. For God, I endeavor to take care of my body. I do not put into my body things that my conscience tells me are unholy. And with every fiber of my being, I feel that these vaccines, tainted as they are with the sin of abortion and avarice, are unholy.
