Even The Vatican Has Employment Controversy over the Jab

Popes receive vaccineThe Vatican has moved to clarify a decree that implied employees could lose their jobs if they refuse to get a Covid-19 vaccination without legitimate health reasons, after criticism on social media.

A decree on 8 February by Cardinal Giuseppe Bertello, the governor of Vatican City, said getting a vaccine was "the responsible choice" because of the risk of harming other people.

Vatican City, at 108 acres the world's smallest state, has several thousand employees, most of whom live in Italy.

Its vaccination programme began last month and Pope Francis, 84, was among the first to get the vaccine.

The decree said that those who cannot get vaccinated for health reasons may be given another position, presumably where they would have contact with fewer people, but will receive the same pay even if the new post is a demotion.

But the decree said those who refuse to get a vaccination without sufficient reason would be subject to a specific provision in a 2011 law on employee rights and duties.

The article in the 2011 law says employees who refuse "preventive measures" could be subjected to "varying degrees of consequences that could lead to dismissal".

After news stories about the decree, many Italians took to Twitter to criticise it, with some saying it was contrary to Pope Francis' general call for mercy.  Read more at RTE HERE.

Abortion opponents protest COVID-19 vaccines’ use of fetal cells:

“It is critically important that Americans have access to a vaccine that is produced ethically: no American should be forced to choose between being vaccinated against this potentially deadly virus and violating his or her conscience,” members of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and 20 other religious, medical, and political organizations that oppose abortion wrote to Stephen Hahn, commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in April. “Thankfully, other [COVID-19] vaccines … utilize cell lines not connected to unethical procedures and methods.”

Apparently the Vatican is at odds with US Conference of Catholic Bishops who remain solidly ANTI-ABORTION … IS THERE NO INSTITUTION IN THE WORLD THAT MAINTAINS THE FAIITH AND TRUST OF THE PEOPLE … JUSTICE SYSTEM? ACADEMIA? MEDIA? POLITICIANS? RELIGION? MILITARY? INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES? ON AND ON .. I CAN'T THINK OF A SINGLE INSTITUTION THAT I STILL TRUST IMPLICITLY???
