I don’t believe this is possible where we are at in US society. Disrespect for other beliefs leads to one’s own beliefs being disrespected.
For decades I have heard nothing less than ridicule and derision from … lets be generous and say … 20% of the population regarding the beliefs of another 20% of the population.
It is completely disingenuous to ask to “integrate and honor everyone’s beliefs” only when it is one’s own beliefs threatened - but the very next day and / or the day previously completely disregard and refuse to consider the beliefs of those you consider on the other side.
Yes - shame on the mobs. Here again - the meaning of words is important: Mob - a large crowd of people, especially one that is disorderly and intent on causing trouble or violence.
Where is there a vax mandate? Were you forced to get a vaccine? I know several people who still haven’t got it yet. Nobody’s rounding them up or anything. They still get their Social security, EBT or whatever.
Religious freedom - In what way is your personal religious freedom being violated? Does your religion require you to have a minimum number of participants to worship? Where is that in the Bible?
Industrialization of human tissue harvesting - A bit late, but thanks for joining the party.
I personally can go either way, but I think it’s hypocritical if people flip flop according to who is “in charge”.
Has this always been your concern and will it still be your concern under a new regime - or is it just another throw-away cause to pick up or discard whenever your preferred group wins or loses?
Here is an excerpt from an article published over a year ago. This was not secret - but well known. Any kind of claim that this was being done in secret is absurd, because there is a clear paper trail in the public domain that can be found in a 10 second Google search.
Note this is the NY Times, and I have no idea if they are using the term “fetus” accurately or not.
the treatment for Covid-19 received by Mr. Trump — a cocktail of monoclonal antibodies he described as a “cure” was developed using human cells derived from a fetus aborted decades ago.
Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that the president received late last week, was also developed with those cell lines. At least two companies racing to create a vaccine against the coronavirus, Moderna and AstraZeneca, are also relying on the cells. Johnson & Johnson is testing its vaccine in another so-called cell line originally produced from fetal tissue.
As participants in the [TRUMP] White House’s Operation Warp Speed, all three vaccine-makers have received federal funding.
M.I.T. Technology Review first reported that cells originally derived from an aborted fetus were used to develop Regeneron’s antibody cocktail.
A Trump administration official argued on Thursday that the president’s embracing of the treatments was not a contradiction.
The [TRUMP] administration’s policy on fetal tissue research “specifically excluded” cell lines made before June 2019, said the official, who did not wish to be identified because he was not authorized to speak about the matter.
