So, the Pope has gone ahead and given the faithful express permission to engage in – *check notes* – to engage in cannibalism.
The Pope says cannibalism is fine.
The Vatican told Roman Catholics on Monday that it was morally acceptable to use COVID-19 vaccines even if their production employed cell lines drawn from tissues of aborted foetuses.
A note from the Vatican’s doctrinal congregation, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, said the use of such vaccines was permitted as long as there were no alternatives.
Both the Pfizer Inc and Moderna Inc vaccines have some connection to cell lines that originated with tissue from abortions in the last century, according to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which issued a separate note to American Catholics last week.
The Vatican note said the granting of moral legitimacy was related to the principle “differing degrees of responsibility of cooperation in evil.”
This meant that because the pandemic is such a grave danger, such vaccines “can be used in good conscience with the certain knowledge that (it) does not constitute formal cooperation with the abortion from which the cells used in production of the vaccines derive,” the note said.
In the absence of safe vaccines made from other sources, “it is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process.”
With regards to the Pope, I recently wrote about his demand that everyone on earth get injected with the vaccine. When I saw that headline, I started thinking about the fact that virtually all vaccines now contain the flesh of murdered infants (“fetal tissue”), and did some research on the coronavirus vaccine.
Pfizer is claiming that their vaccine does not contain infant flesh. However, the basis for that claim was unclear. They claim it is 100% synthetic, but they do not explain how they were able to produce synthetic cell lines. I speculated that Pfizer could well be in league with the government to lie about this issue, given that the government wants to push this vaccine on everyone, and if the vaccine contains infant flesh, that would give the people a grounds from which to push back.
The main resistance to aborted babies being in vaccines comes from Catholics, of course. But now, they’ve just gotten permission from the Pope to get injected with this fetal flesh.
So I guess there’s no problem then.
