CWN Editor's Note: In a new television interview, Pope Francis said that everyone should take the Covid vaccine. “One must do it,” he said, disclosing that he has already scheduled a shot. The Pontiff said that he could not understand worries that the vaccine might have serious side effects; he said that skeptics are afflicted by “suicidal denial.”

    Bless you Randal and Mrs (Dr) Mandock! you set us a good example. I so distrust Pope Francis's secular pontifications that I almost automatically want to do the opposite of anything he advises (as in "Obey the UN").

    I've had the disease already and survived. I will take my chances with my antibodies. Medical doctor wife has been exposed to COVID patients nearly every day since contracting the disease in August. If she has no immunity, then it must be solely by the grace of God that she has not contracted the disease a second time. Call it suicidal denial, but I'll suffer another mild cold caused by the virus. I am willing to submit to 10 more days of isolation to avoid any degree of cooperation in abortion.
