But not everyone agrees. Even some traditional Catholics priests argue that these would-be heroes are merely misinformed, and that there is no need to take such a strong stand against these vaccines.
Obviously, this is one of the most pressing issues of the day, since it involves life-and-death decisions, questions of employment, travel, healthcare, etc. Catholics need strong moral guidance, in other words, from their priests and theologians, especially since global laws may soon require vaccine passports for all.
In this video, Michael Matt directly challenges Bishop Athanasius Schneider on his position on this question, arguing that His Excellency may be showing a lack of due concern for human life by taking the strong stand he has.
Bishop Schneider’s answer is truly epic in its fidelity to the sensus Catholicus so sorely lacking from this now international debate from the Vatican to the pulpits.
