Not So Fast
I wanted to share this. Maybe it can be a help to some people. Of course, many of us are refusing the Covid “vaccines” because of their connection with abortion. I have read that companies are sending out lists of products that employees must write off if they are going to refuse the “vaccines” based on these concerns. As COVID-19 vaccine mandates rise, religious exemptions grow - ABC News (go.com) I was unsure about this, and then I read the following which raised my hackles. “The Rev. Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas, a Southern Baptist megachurch, said he and his staff “are neither offering nor encouraging members to seek religious exemptions from the vaccine mandates.”
“There is no credible religious argument against the vaccines,” he said via email. “Christians who are troubled by the use of a fetal cell line for the testing of the vaccines would also have to abstain from the use of Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, Ibuprofen, and other products that used the same cell line if they are sincere in their objection.” (Many faith leaders say no to endorsing vaccine exemptions - ABC News (go.com)
I attempted to do some research but I was running into dead-ends. I sent an email to the folks at Children of God for Life and I included it and the response I received below. The article provided by Mr. Trasancos (link below) appears to destroy the narrative of Jeffress and others." "Greg Cheney Sun 9/19/2021 9:27 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Greetings: I have read the recent buzz in the news that employees that object to the Covid vaccine, because of its connection to abortion, are receiving lists from companies that purportedly contain medicines that were tested using fetal cell lines, and these employees are being told they must agree not to use these products in order to prove their sincerity. For example, Tylenol (which of course is a name brand - it did not list acetaminophen) and ibuprofen were listed. I have attempted to research this but I cannot find where this is actually the case. Do you have the answer for this? I did not see these items listed on the resource you provided on your site and I want to make sure I am not missing something. Greg Cheney Jose L. Trasancos <email@example.com> Sun 9/19/2021 5:37 PM To: You; firstname.lastname@example.org Greg, No one is producing acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin or anything similar with aborted fetal cell lines. Those articles are preposterously misleading. Please see this article and let me know if you have any questions. Yours very sincerely, and in Christ, Jose L. Trasancos, Ph.D. Chief Executive Officer Children of God for Life, Inc. " Robert Jeffress should spend less time on Fox News promoting statist principles and trust in government, and more time trying to find out if he knows what he is talking about before he tries to give advice to Christians.
