CWN Editor's Note: An Italian bishop has suspended a priest who is campaigning against the Covid-vaccine mandate.

Bishop Francesco Beschi of Bergamo said that Father Emanuel Personeni was removed from his pastoral assignment because he had abandoned “the community entrusted to his pastoral care” in order to campaign against the mandate. The bishop added that vaccination is a moral obligation as well as a legal requirement.

    Vaccination is a moral obligation? So is opposing abortion. So is boycotting and eventually forcing the closure of every pharmaceutical company that has any whiff of research that exploits aborted children. It is not enough to oppose recent vaccines that could not exist without aborted children. Every tax and private dollar spent on research with any connection whatsoever to aborted children must be opposed in the strongest possible terms: verbally, litigiously, economically, refusal to consume.
