Catholic U.S. troops should be allowed to refuse the COVID-19 vaccine based solely on conscientious objection and regardless of whether abortion-related tissue was used in its creation or testing, the archbishop for the military declared in a new statement supporting service members who are seeking religious exemptions.

“No one should be forced to receive a COVID-19 vaccine if it would violate the sanctity of his or her conscience,” said Archbishop for the Military Services Timothy P. Broglio...


Amen.

    Of course they can “follow their conscience” and choose to deny the vaccine (that’s Catholic Doctrine). But they also have to accept the consequences of their choices. Their religion, however, does not teach that getting vaccinated is wrong so they can’t use that excuse.

    ”VATICAN CITY, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Pope Francis issued an appeal on Wednesday urging people to get inoculated against COVID-19, saying the vaccines could bring an end to the pandemic, but needed to be taken by everyone.

    "Thanks to God's grace and to the work of many, we now have vaccines to protect us from COVID-19," the pope said in a video message made on behalf of the nonprofit U.S. group the Ad Council and the public health coalition COVID Collaborative.

    So, what do you see as the consequence? Purgatory? Hell?

    The consequences could result in being discharged from the military.

    I don't know where you get hell or purgatory out of any of this.

    It's a Catholic thing. Going against the Pope?

    You really don't understand what the Catholic position is on fidelity to one's conscience, do you Hate.

    Virtually everything in institutionalized Christianity is beyond my understanding. That's why I left.

    For me, there are just too many contradictions in all the different definitions and explanations of what Christianity is, what it teaches, and what it means to be a Christian…institutionalized or not.
