A favorite tactic of the STASI. Similar to snitching on non mask wearing people.

I agree with everything Michael Wilson is saying. My sibling does not compromise his transgender identity. He said he will take nothing less than my full cooperation with his new female identity, pronouns and name. He basically erased his former marriage and his fatherhood. I can't go along with that because I will be damned by God and I told him so. He said he never wants to see me again. He banished me forever. He had no qualms about throwing me out.

Stop and think. If a transgender is applauded by the public for holding his ground in support of grave sin that offends God, why must faithful Catholics be the ones to compromise? Why can't we throw them out? Can't we hold our ground for God?

And what about transgenders who are not like your sibling?

Quite frankly, I haven't seen or heard one who isn't as militant as my brother in demanding total acceptance, insisting we participate in the lie, use preferred pronouns, call them by the new name, accomodate their bathroom choice, etc. I recently worked with a gay woman who told me about a transgender friend's party she went to last year. She accidently used the wrong pronoun on one of his guests. The others overheard it, they stopped, they stared, they gave her the cold shoulder. She felt the social pressure and quickly left.

On the flipside, ex-gay pornographer Joseph Sciambra told of a time when his dad threw him out. After his conversion, Joseph admitted it was for his own good. Now think about that for a moment.

***My first priority is the salvation of my brother's soul since there is no one else left who cares what he does. His ex-wife and adult children are cool with it. Others are indifferent. I have enough to do with praying and fasting for him.***  Never mind Bergoglio, the decision is up to transgenders and their families if they're going to be an accessory to sin or not.  They will have to deal with the eternal consequences of their decision.

Nine Ways of Being Accessory to Anotherís Sin

By counsel.
By command.
By consent.
By provocation.
By praise or flattery.
By concealment.
By partaking.
By silence.
By defense of the ill done.

God repeatedly used capital punishment against His own people in the OT. Those that believe the OT, as many religions do, figured out that capital punishment can be allowable under certain circumstances.

God repeated used our enemies to punish us(with capital punishment).  There is a difference. 

I believe that capital punishment finds its home among totalitarian culture, whose culture is their entire world.  There is no other world to be exiled to.  It is among non totalitarian kingdoms plural where exile can be made use of.  God even made use of exile in this sense among the israelite tribes.

Is not the death penalty proscribed in the Mosaic codes?  Who carried out the Mosaic codes? It was not the enemies of the Israelites, except to the degree that they were their own worst enemy (which I suppose was often the case).

...and in the USA, it never refers to what happens in organized demonstrations of left wing radicals who stand shoulder-to-shoulder in a crowd, many not wearing the mask. And it never refers to crowded big box stores either--only small proprietors.

That is one smart virus. It seems to target those whom the left doesn't like and calls them "super-spreaders."

JMHO even 1 person support for this offense to God is too many.

It's 20 pct of Catholics, not of the ME population. Also, a lower estimate strengthens my argument.

NO. "Super spreader" events are being attributed to worship service and conservative rallies mostly. If blm and antifa have massive rallies they aren't designated "super spreader." Hence, it is a political tool and not a scientific one. Britannica stories are fiction not science although they claim to be.

In the Philippines, it refers to what happens in worship events, shopping, and vacationing.

General News and Discussion / Re: Who here has received the COVID-19 vaccine?

Once kidney cells and lung cells are damaged, the output of that vital organ is reduced and it never regains function. The vital organs are essential in keeping one alive. Olfactory nerve damage may or may not be permanent; however, it is not a vital organ that if damaged will shorten life expectancy. You cannot compare them.

Vital organ damage with vaccines is possible but rare. The frequentl cause is anaphylactic shock related to allergy to a preservative or a component of the vaccine. Vital organ damage is much more common in unvaccinated patients who have major infections.

Death can happen if someone receives vaccine while ill, but this is prevented by prescreening questions. If an infected person is asymptomatic he may still die from COVID-19 once the viral replication has moved from lag phase to a rapid log phase. This can happen even to unvaccinated persons. An investigation is warranted to determine if the vaccine played a role or not in worsening the outcome of an infection the patient didn't know he had. Until the investigation is concluded, it is wrong to state that the vaccine alone killed the patient.

For safety reasons, vaccines should be spaced out 8 weeks or more apart. Ditto for infections. It is best to wait 8 weeks or more before getting vaccinated. Walgreens states this on their consent form.

If I invented a new painkiller never before on the market, I would have to have toxicology reports on organs before it would get to market?  How come Pfizer and the others get a free pass?

Now if you should have an infection 8 weeks before vaccination including asymptomatic I assume, why then are they vaccinating people without a covid test to see if they are currently infected?  My husbands nursing home was vaccinated on Friday and not one of the residents were tested beforehand.

The fudging of the normal rules are mind blowing in this vaccine push.

Lauremar, would you support my decision not to vaccinate even if it meant that the holy grail of 75% herd immunity the governments are going for?

Vital organ damage with vaccines is possible but rare. Fatal side effects occur when patients with contraindications are given vaccines they shouldn't receive. For example: hospice, chemotherapy, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, underweight/cachexic, fragile, or allergic to a preservative or component of the vaccine can have anaphylactic shock. So can ingestion of foods and other medicines. Vital organ damage also happens to unvaccinated patients with major infections.
