In this issue we return to the debate over the use of the vaccine with an article by John Lacken responding to the article written by Professor Roberto de Mattei. In this article John makes some good arguments which are difficult to refute, he also calls for the debate to be conducted with charity.
There are many people who do not want to take the vaccine for a variety of reasons and their freedom to make this decision must be respected. No one should be forced to take a vaccine. Likewise we should not criticise or correct those who for personal and sincere reasons have chosen to take the vaccine. It is a private matter and should remain so.
This is a difficult decision for many people and many do not want to get involved in the arguments about the vaccine – this is understandable and in the end this is a private decision between you and your conscience so let us not make any judgements and continue to have the debate in a charitable and civilised manner.
In the absence of any clear response from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which clarifies the points made by both sides of this debate then all each of us can do is to read the information available, if you have a spiritual director speak to him, trust his judgement and be guided by your conscience.
In the meantime the various Pro Life groups should come together to organise a global petition and lobbying of pharmaceutical companies, governments etc. to produce ethically acceptable vaccines.
Meanwhile let us not forget where the Chinese virus originated from. China expert, Steve Mosher, reports that the same murderous regime that has brought us forced abortion and sterilisation, forced organ harvesting, and genocide in real time also appears to be developing deadly bioweapons to release upon the world.
In an article published on LifeSiteNews, Steve writes that the Australian Strategic Policy Institute has just uncovered a Chinese book that proves that Chinese military scientists have been working towards the development of a “new era of genetic weapons.” These weapons, the Chinese scientists promised, could be “artificially manipulated into an emerging human disease virus, then weaponized and unleashed.”
In the 2015 volume, called The Unnatural Origin of SARS and New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons, the Chinese military scientists begin by suggesting that World War III would be fought with biological weapons.
And not just any bioweapons.
Coronaviruses, a number of which cause respiratory illnesses in people, were mentioned as a class of viruses that could be readily weaponised. Indeed, the Chinese scientists were even more explicit, pointing out in their paper that the coronavirus that causes Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, or SARS, was an ideal candidate for a bioweapon.
The Chinese Virus – or COVID-19 as the World Health Organisation insists that we call it – is a type of SARS virus.
Now you understand why Peter Jennings, the executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), described the new document as the closest thing to a “smoking gun as we’ve got.”
News.com.au quoted Jennings as saying that “I think this is significant because it clearly shows that Chinese scientists were thinking about military application for different strains of the coronavirus and thinking about how it could be deployed. It begins to firm up the possibility that what we have here [in the China Virus] is the accidental release of a pathogen for military use.”
Jennings also believes that the China Virus’s origins as a bioweapon explain why China has blocked investigations. “If this was a case of transmission from a wet market it would be in China’s interest to co-operate,” Jennings pointed out. “We’ve had the opposite of that.”
Indeed, we’ve had a full-blown cover up, which continues to the present day. As former Deputy National Security Advisor (DNSA) Mathew Pottinger pointed out in a February interview. U.S. intelligence believed that the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) had been “doing secret classified animal experiments in that same laboratory [Wuhan Institute of Virology]” as early as 2017. He added that there is “good reason to believe” that an outbreak of a “flu-like illness” had occurred among the scientists in the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in the fall of 2019, just before the first cases of a new type of pneumonia were being reported in Wuhan.
While the Wuhan lab poses as a “civilian institution,” Pottinger said, U.S. intelligence has determined that the lab has collaborated on publications and secret bioweapons projects with China’s military.
Pottinger also noted one final – and very telling – point: when the outbreak in Wuhan began it was the Chinese military, and not the Chinese CDC, that was called in to handle the situation.
This is exactly what you would expect to happen if the China Virus was a product of a military bioweapons program.
No one currently serving in the Biden administration has been willing to go quite this far. But even they have begun to backtrack from the bat soup story of late. Biden’s Director of National Intelligence, Avril Haines, recently admitted that one of the two possible explanations for the origin of COVID-19 would involve an “escape” from a Chinese bio lab in Wuhan.
Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that, where the CCP is concerned, America should “distrust and verify.”
China’s official explanation is clearly a fabrication.
We may never know for certain whether the novel coronavirus was intended to be used as a bioweapon. But we do know that the major Western print, broadcast, and social media are all doing their best to dismiss the very possibility as a paranoid fantasy.
At the end of the day, whether the novel coronavirus had already been tinkered with before it reached the streets of Wuhan is (almost) of secondary importance. For the Communist leaders are clearly engaged in an effort to develop such a weapon as part and parcel of their strategy to become the dominant power on the planet.
