The COVID-19 vaccine
is being pushed on us, but is it really safe? What is your opinion of it?
o understand what is occurring now,
let’s remember what occurred in January 2003 when the space shuttle Columbia
disintegrated on re-entry from orbit. The cause of the disaster was damage to the
shuttle when it was launched, but the danger of that damage was dismissed by the
controllers, and the mission was allowed to continue—only to end in disaster.
An Intricate Interplay
Therefore, the theological lesson
to be learned from the disaster—and the tragic loss of the crew member’s lives—is
that the disaster itself should not be seen as a direct act of God. Instead, it
should be understood in the context of an intricate interplay of human
free will that points to one chillingly
simple issue: overconfidence in human reason.
in Human Reason
When insulation from the
fuel tank struck the shuttle’s left wing at liftoff, the mission could
have been called off on the spot. Had the shuttle been brought back immediately
to the ground, engineers might have discovered the true extent of the damage,
or they might have discovered some other pre-existing structural problems.
Of course, the decision to cancel the mission would have had an enormous
cost, financially and politically. Therefore, it was decided, according to
pragmatism, honor, and human reason, that there was
no danger to the spacecraft. “Rest assured, we see no danger to the mission.” So
the mission continued—and lives were doomed.
So consider that decision. Rest
assured, we see no danger to the mission. Such is the assurance of
reason. Yet disaster might have been averted had the engineers stepped back from
their human confidence and asked, “But what if we’re wrong?”
Yes, “But what if we’re wrong?” If only
we had such love for God as to allow ourselves to ask that question. So consider
some other common statements based in love for human reason rather than love for God.
We don’t see any harm in lifestyles defiant of chastity.
We don’t see any harm in divorce. We don’t see any harm in artificial birth control.
We don’t see any harm in abortion. We don’t see any harm in marijuana. We
don’t see any harm in social media. These are all assurances made by those
who dissent from the true Faith
of the Church. And fine assurances they are. Remember the Columbia.
So, yes, remember the Columbia when
wondering about the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is being pushed upon us by
governments and by peer pressure. And we’re being told that the vaccine is “completely
safe.” But what if those voices of assurance are wrong? The vaccine for a mysterious
virus manufactured as a political conspiracy was rushed into development in an
atmosphere of social hysteria. By medical standards, the vaccine is experimental, and
no one knows what long-term side-effects the vaccine will have. What if there will be
health complications, birth defects, mental confusion, dementia, depression, and suicide?
What if the government agents—and the “experts” duped by the government—are
wrong? And what if the government agents really don’t care about deaths and birth defects
caused by the vaccine—that is, what if their secret goal is to depopulate the earth and to
have a steady supply of aborted human babies to grind up for scientific research?
The Truth No One Will Admit
If the vaccine really were as effective
as the government wants you to believe, and if it will really protect from infection
anyone who takes it, then why is everyone concerned about whether you receive
the vaccine? If they have taken the vaccine, and if they are safe, then
what you do should be irrelevant to them. So what can be concluded from this
other than that the pressure for you to submit to the vaccine is all a conspiracy of
Furthermore, consider what has been occurring
recently. In locations where vaccinations are close to 100%, infections are increasing. No
one wants to admit it, but vaccinations are actually causing the spread of disease.
Yet, right now, almost everyone has jumped on the
bandwagon. Sadly, the long-term effects have yet to appear. In about two years people who
are now submitting to the vaccine may start dropping like flies sprayed with bug killer.
Coping With Bullying
If you choose not to take the vaccine, then prepare
yourself to be bullied by those who have been brainwashed by government propaganda. Keep in
mind that when someone attacks you with hate, the ideal "response" to hate is to not respond.
Hate is by nature a sin and therefore unreasonable, and so attempting
to reason with hate is futile. Furthermore, trying to fight it with more hate would only defile
you. Accordingly, keep quiet, leave the justice to God, and maintain
your composure and dignity.
In all of this, consider that when others accuse
you of being “selfish” or “uncharitable” they are reflecting the typical politically correct
atheistic belief that “charity” equates with “going along with the crowd”—but seen in the true
spiritual sense, “going along with the crowd” is the surest way to end up in
hell. It’s not selfish to work out you own salvation with fear and
trembling; on the contrary, it’s a Biblical requirement (see Philippians 2:12b).
Therefore, the lesson here is a lesson
about warning. Government agents—and those who have been duped by the government—who
put their trust in their own self-confidence are headed for eventual disaster, and that could
contribute to their sending others to their doom as well. But if you understand the mystic
ramifications of God’s love, and humbly
accept and surrender to that love despite the inconvenience,
and let that love be your guide in every moment of uncertainty, then you have
good reason to rest assured.

Disasters and Trauma by Raymond Lloyd Richmond, Ph.D. explains how an
event is traumatic because it disrupts your previously secure sense of self.
Wild animals live with a constant, sharp awareness of perpetual
danger, yet most people live with a naive—and deceptive—sense of safety and
security to the point of denying their basic vulnerability and fragmented sense
of self. So when something disastrous happens, the psychological damage from the
shattering of your illusions about life and identity may be more problematic than
any physical damage.
