Today’s highly interesting read (09/20/21): Would Jesus Mandate the Jab?

After the onslaught of COVID last year my Catholic parish instituted a number of restrictions. As a result, weekly attendance at the popular 10:00 Sunday Mass plummeted like a tennis ball rolling off a card table.

Then this past spring our pastor shut down the 10:00 Mass altogether for a total of four consecutive weeks, angry that most attendees were not wearing masks after Gov. Evers’ state mandate was tossed out by the state Supreme Court. That move ticked off even more folks.

Parishioners who abandoned my church haven’t come back. Weekly attendance that my fellow ushers keep track of has dropped by 50-60%.

Today’s read is from Patrick D. Hampton, a minister, educator, and charter-school administrator/ advocate. Here’s a brief excerpt:

If you want to see and experience great disappointment, look no further than the mainstream American church. Once the strongholds of faith, these institutions have lost their religion by embracing the cult of medical tyranny.

  1. Oh Kevin, how terrible. I didn’t know that they didn’t come back. Why would this happen? Over a germ rag? Is the priest pleased with his handling of issue? Why not attempt to compromise? Seems like a lot of pride instead of genuine concern. I almost wonder if the powers that be wanted to break up that group of very strong, committed Catholics and scatter them. We have a pope that only allows the vaccinated into the Vatican now. Cardinal Dolan urges all Catholics to get the vax. I have no clue what our own archbishop is saying, but have heard what the one in Chicago is doing– awful. The smoke entered the Church, and within the cloud the devil waltzed in and made himself at home. Just evil. St. Ants will always be our home parish. I foolishly felt that when I was well enough to come back things would be as they always were. I cannot express my sadness that good Catholics were forced out. Of course, you know what I think is behind the Covid plandemic. But to see the Church get behind the evil is very unsettling.
