What does “Demonstrate Your Good Faith” mean?
Will Dan Cox continue to disobey his conscience, and go above God?
A religious exemption is available for those who apply for that exemption with a bona fide religious belief. Dan Cox has been a vocal proponent of taking a religious exemption when applicable to avoid consequences of any state, Federal or employment vaccine mandate. In fact, he stated on a zoom meeting “Demonstrate your good faith” by applying for the vaccine exemption.
During this zoom meeting, one of the speakers invited by Dan Cox was a religious pastor. The Pastor provided the reasoning for a religious exemption. As I understand this gentleman, human conscience is guided by the Holy Spirit. To disobey conscience is to disobey God and is a sin against God. The Pastor emphasizes that if you violate your conscience, you go above God and violate your relationship with God through sin.
The issue of the COVID vaccine is that fetal cell lines have been used in the testing during research and development of the mRNA vaccines and during the production of the J&J vaccine. But let’s play this out. If a person is seeking a religious exemption to the COVID vaccine because of this issue, then the person must also be willing to decline any healthcare intervention with pharmaceuticals (therapeutic or preventive) if fetal cell lines have been used in the research, development or development of the product. To be exempt from the COVID vaccine, but to continue to take any medication or to talk positively about the use of any such medication is to NOT follow your conscience and thereby go above God, thereby sinning against God.
Having been in pharma and biotech for years, I already knew and understand what Father Matthew Schneider writes in his article ”If Any Drug Tested on HEK-293 is Immoral, Goodbye Modern Medicine.”1 He states, “They (the people who argue against vaccines) want nothing that could in any way indicate a possible approval of abortion or drawing good from abortion. If that is the standard, that standard should be applied across the board to all drugs.”
Therefore we get to my point. If the person seeks exemption from the COVID vaccine, they must apply this exemption “across the board to all drugs” using any fetal cell line. To do otherwise would be to sin against God.
An article from the NYT Mag appeared in my inbox this morning. “Is It OK to Claim a Religious Exemption to the COVID Vaccine?”2 “People who say that they should be exempt without cost are refusing to take their responsibility to the rest of us seriously. They can hardly expect us to burden ourselves for their sakes if they aren’t inclined to reciprocate. We also have reason to doubt the weight of their religious commitments, given that such commitments typically entail accepting the reasonable burdens of living up to them.”
Beware folks, the list of drugs that have used HEK293 or other cell lines is long. On that long list is: azithromycin, hydroxychloroquine, remdesivir, ivermectin, the mAB’s under EUA for COVID treatment. Even dexamethasone has been studied using HEK293.
We have just eliminated all the possible medications used for COVID treatment. (You can see a short list of medications in Schneider’s blog.)
I urge you to read Father Matthew Schneider’s works. He is a priest with the Legionaries of Christ and has written much on this topic. Please go to his blog site, as he writes on many aspects of this moral and ethical dilemma. In the meantime, be careful what you demand in terms of the vaccine. .. it must apply across the board to all drugs (OTC and RX).
To use Dan Cox’s verbiage when he wants action of his opponent: “I call on” Dan Cox to denounce the use of IVM, HCQ and all other medications that have used fetal cell lines in the R &D, or development of that product.
He has already promoted the use of both HCQ and IVM in his FB posts. Will he continue to disobey his conscience, and go above God?
I also “call on” Dan Cox to provide us the name of his medical/pandemic advisor. We deserve to know.
