CATHOLIC NEWSPAPER: The newspaper for the Diocese of Richmond issued an apology following the publication of a satirical cartoon mocking an unvaccinated patient sick with COVID-19, admitting it “lacked the love of Christ that we, as Catholics, are taught to preach and to live.”

It also ignored the fact that the Bible clearly teaches that karma is anti-Christian and that schadenfreude is a sin. “Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth.” – 1 Corinthians 13:6

CHILD PORN: CLICK [:41] to hear the mayor of Hudson, Ohio, announce to the school board members that any of them who do not resign immediately will be charged with promoting child pornography. It’s not clear whether the board can be held criminally liable for curriculum material, but the stuff was pulled out of the school immediately anyway.

(The graphic has nothing to do with the story. I used it because it’s funny, school-related, and not about porn, which turns my stomach.)

CONFORMITY: If we are to be GOD’S people, we must be filled with the Holy Spirit and live steeped in prayer, so the opinions of others cannot push us into making bad choices.

CORNELL UNIVERSITY: During the first week of classes, 322 people tested positive for the coronavirus during the opening “surveillance testing”, despite a 95% vaccination rate. “Surveillance testing” at Cornell involves testing healthy individuals without symptoms for COVID-19 in order to quarantine them and stop them from spreading the coronavirus.

Does it strike anyone else as whacked out that healthy, most likely vaccinated students have to lock themselves in their dorm rooms to “protect” other vaccinated students from catching a mild case that would grant them broad, durable immunity?

N.b., I chose the postcard above, because this building – Anabel Taylor Hall – is where Dearest and I first met and where we had our wedding and reception. Our 42d anniversary is next month. 🙂

FAUCI: CLICK [:38] to hear the 2019 version of St. Fauci sneer at the “paranoid” idea that masks can help keep anyone from catching an infectious disease.

OOPS: When Detroit’s ABC station asked Facebook users to share stories of unvaccinated people who have passed away from COVID-19, an overwhelming number of the people who responded talked about death and injury that followed soon after the COVID-19 shot. Below is a brief list of some of the responses:

I know a 37 year old who got the vaccine and died of brain aneurysm 8 days later.”

I know 3 people personally that died shortly after being fully vaxxed.”

My Aunt died a week after the shot.”

My mother had a heart attack 4 days after receiving her first vaccine. She now has a blood clot in her lung.”

My neighbor died from the vax, the funeral is next week.”

My mom can’t feel her arms and legs.”

My BFF has been in ER several times with debilitating headaches.”

NEW YORK: Cuomo’s replacement, Gov. Kathy Hochul, recently sent a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg requesting that the social media giant increase efforts to censor pro-lifers.

NOKO: North Korea said it successfully launched ballistic missiles from a train for the first time on Wednesday.

PERSONAL CHOICE: A new national poll by the Trafalgar Group shows American’s overwhelming reject vaccine mandates.

PRO-ABORTION: Google has banned all pro-life ads from Live Action, including ads for the Abortion Pill Reversal hotline, which is managed by a team of medical professionals.

They aren’t hiding their bias anymore. Google’s censorship baldly reveals that the corporation is in the pocket of the abortion industry.” – Lila Rose, president of Live Action

RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS: CLICK [1:03:33] to hear John-Henry Westen’s December 2020 interview of Bishop Athanasius Schneider about the morality of Catholics receiving vaccines and drugs that were developed with or tested on cells derived from aborted human fetuses. This applies to all the COVID-19 vaccines, as well as to the Regeneron-COV treatment.

At the Fairview Baptist Church link (last one below), there is a good article from a non-Catholic-Christian point of view about religious exemptions. It covers informed consent, sanctity of life for the unborn, the body as a temple, and conscience. It’s worth reading.

TRANS BISHOP: The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) just installed its first openly transgender bishop on Saturday during a ceremony at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco with 65 bishops and more than 150 pastors in attendance.

Bishop Megan Rohrer will lead the Sacramento-based Sierra Pacific Synod, which includes almost 200 congregations in California and Nevada. The 41-year-old biological female uses the pronouns “he” and “they” and is married to “his” wife, Laurel. The couple has two children.

TRUMP: Heads up to my fellow Trump supporters … beware of giving your email to any Trump group. I’m now on multiple lists, all of which send me nearly daily “Donate Now” begging emails. I wouldn’t mind it so much, but their “unsubscribe” functions do not work. So EVERY DAY, I have 4 or 5 of these “DONATE NOW” things in my spam folder!

P.S., I also had a bad experience with the Trump 2020 campaign store. They took my money immediately, but didn’t ship for 6 weeks! When I complained, they said, “That’s what everybody does.” No, it isn’t. I do the majority of my shopping on-line. Almost NOBODY charges UNTIL THEY SHIP.
