This is not a joke, but there is perhaps a punchline: Are the popes Catholic?!
Truly, there’s nothing humorous whatsoever about two elderly vicars of Christ getting their COVID-19 vaccines this week and kicking off the Vatican’s campaign for everyone to follow suit. But now that I have your attention, please ponder with me the shocking reality that both the current pope and pope emeritus have found it necessary to be inoculated against a cold virus with a vaccine made possible with cells savagely harvested from live babies without anesthesia as they were aborted from their mother’s wombs. I will spare you the graphic details.
We should be repulsed by these pusillanimous popes’ fears for their bodily health over the state of their immortal souls. At ages 84 (Bergoglio) and 93 (Ratzinger), their physical decline and deaths are likely imminent with or without COVID-19. Age notwithstanding, protecting oneself from the vastly overhyped, agenda-driven threat of COVID-19 does not begin to justify the intrinsic evil of child murder. Even if it was just one abortion. Even if it was decades ago.
It matters not that the USCCB says the abortion-tainted vaccines can be “morally permissible” or that Pope Francis is of the opinion we must all get vaccinated. Says he: “…it’s an ethical choice, because you are playing with health, life, but you are also playing with the lives of others.” To be clear, by “others” the pope means us who were allowed to be born and not the “others” whose lives were sacrificed in utero to Big Pharma.
More than anything, we should be outraged that Catholics and, indeed, the entire world are being misled by the pope — the pope! — to believe a blatant offense against God Who is All Good . . . is essential and acceptable for the common good. To those who fall in line with this thinking, the joke is on you.
