San Diego Roman Catholic Bishop Robert McElroy has sent a letter instructing priests in his diocese that there is no basis in Catholic teaching to offer a religious exemption for COVID-19 vaccinations as more employers and schools enact vaccine mandates.
In his letter dated August 11, McElroy reiterated the Catholic Church’s support for COVID-19 vaccinations and asked pastors to “caringly decline” requests from parishioners seeking a religious exemption endorsement to justify their decision against being inoculated with the COVID-19 vaccine.
The directive comes after McElroy said several pastors wrote him saying they had received requests from parishioners to sign a form written by the Colorado Catholic Conference suggesting that there is basis in Catholic teaching that justifies a religious exemption to receiving any or all forms of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Colorado Catholic Conference released its letter Aug. 6, affirming that, while “the use of some COVID-19 vaccines is morally acceptable under certain circumstances,” they objected to vaccination mandates. Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila of Denver; Bishop Stephen J. Berg of Pueblo; Bishop James R. Golka of Colorado Springs; and Auxiliary Bishop Jorge Rodriguez of Denver signed the letter.
“In the case of the COVID-19 vaccine, we are convicted that the government should not impose medical interventions on an individual or group of persons. We urge respect for each person’s convictions and personal choices,” the Colorado bishops said.
My question is, dear reader, why is the Vatican so interested in the vaccination program???
God being so good there are so many SINCERE catholic Bishops who does not agree with the Vatican tyranny. The Papacy always uses force and this is not the first time.
Do you see how the vaccine mandate is spreading accross the world? So will the Sunday law also spread worldwide after enactment.
The papacy has always been against religious freedom if you did not know. God is calling his people out of religio-political system.
Come out of Her (The Dragons Church)My People Revelation 18:4
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon(Satan) was wroth(Mad) with the woman,(Church) and went to MAKE WAR with the remnant(The People that can’t be Shaken)of her seed, which (They)keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.(Which is the Spirit of Prophecy, Rev 19:10)
The papal church will never relinquish her claim to infallibility.All that she has done in her persecution of those who reject her dogmas she holds to be right; and would she not repeat the same acts, should the opportunity be presented?Let the restraints now imposed by secular governments be removed and Rome be reinstated in her former power, and there would speedily be a revival of her tyranny and persecution.

A well-known writer speaks thus of the attitude of the papal hierarchy as regards freedom of conscience, and of the perils which especially threaten the United States from the success of her policy: GC 564.3
