"The silence of so many cardinals and bishops, along with the inconceivable promotion of the vaccination campaign by the Holy See, represents a form of unprecedented complicity that cannot continue any longer"
So says Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, in a letter addressed to all the Catholic Bishops of the United States.
That such a senior cleric is openly criticising the Holy See in such terms tells us all we need to know about his view of the Covid vaccination programmes.
He addresses two separate issues in detail:
- the moral aspects of the use of the vaccines against Covid-19 that have been developed from cell lines derived from tissues obtained from two fetuses that were not spontaneously aborted
- safety and effectiveness of the vaccines
"there are effective treatments which cure patients and allow them to develop permanent natural immune defenses, something that the vaccines do not do. Furthermore, these treatments do not cause serious side effects, since the drugs that are used have been licensed for decades"
"International standards specify that an experimental drug cannot be authorized for distribution except in the absence of an effective alternative treatment"
"all of these agencies, along with the WHO, are financed almost entirely by the pharmaceutical companies and by foundations tied to them, and that there is a very grave conflict of interest at the highest levels, about which the media are culpably silent"
The above if just a foretaste of his extraordinarily detailed critique, which we would expect, given the extreme gravity of his assertions, to be extremely thorough.
