Archbishop Cordileone and St. Patrick’s Seminary has invited Dr. Scott Atlas, special advisor to the President on the White House Coronavirus Task Force in 2020, to speak at the seminary in Menlo Park on Tuesday, March 28, 5:14. His topic: After the Pandemic: Restoring an Ethical Society.
From a Stanford Review interview with Dr. Atlas:
“I was asked to be an advisor to the President and to join the task force in late July 2020. In early 2020, I was writing my book about reforming the healthcare system, but I saw early in March that logic, common sense, and fundamental understanding of medical science were being thrown by the wayside. Instead of protecting the people who were at high risk, the government was locking down everyone and doing an inadequate job protecting the high-risk people. This was not only against common sense or logic, but there was a fundamental absence of critical thinking at the WHO-level about what the risk of mortality was.”
In November, 2020, the Stanford faculty senate condemned Atlas.

Well, this is no surprise. Archbishop Cordileone has sided himself with the wacko MAGA extremists. Dr Atlas was a proponent of herd immunity which would have resulted in the death of millions. So much for being pro-life!
Wilhelmina, I shall have to educate myself on Dr. Atlas as your shrill, over the top denunciation doesn’t have the ring of authentic analysis, but rather like vacuous woke petulance. However, I shall look into it, and praise you to the heights if your claims pass muster.
Drank the Cool-Aid to the dregs, huh?
I hope you don’t claim to be pro-life.
What is the source of the cells used to test the batches of new vaccine doses that you advocate?
Oh good Lord, not this again. The two most commonly used vaccines in the US, the Pfizer and the Maderna, do not use cells derived from fetal cell lines to test batches of the COVID vaccine.
“The two most commonly used vaccines in the US, the Pfizer and the Maderna, do not use cells derived from fetal cell lines to test batches of the COVID vaccine.”… then what is the source of the cells?
They used the aborted cell line in the testing but not the actual product, whereas Astra Zenica used the cells from the cell line in their product. Go to the “Children of God for Life website” to get all the details. There have been some horrifying results for some people using Astra Zenica, which some pharmaceutical companies have tried to cover up, and some problems with the others, serious blood clots for one.
“They used the aborted cell line in the testing but not the actual product, whereas Astra Zenica used the cells from the cell line in their product.”.. this is for research and development of the original vaccine. The question “what is the source of the cells” concerns the quality control testing of new batches of vaccine doses manufactured since approval for experimental use.
Wilhelmina, why do you say that the Archbishop has allied himself with “the wacko MAGA extremists?”
Is that why he was such a compassionate pastor of a parish near the border or for years has called our attention to the homeless in San Francisco?
It seems you don’t know the archbishop well. I had some Catholics tell me I wasn’t a good Catholic unless I preached that everyone should be vaccinated (and boosted) against COVID, while others told me I couldn’t be a good Catholic unless I preached that no one should get vaccinated. I kept my personal opinion to myself as this is not a matter of faith or morals. The Church should not give medical advice (unless it’s a matter of faith or morals, like abortion, IVF, contraception, et al). We do have a moral obligation for care for others, but exactly what that looks like in practice is not for the Church to prescribe in detail.
And, it seems you oppose honest, transparent, civil discussion, even debate and disagreement, about public policy related to COVID. What are you afraid of? If Dr. Atlas’s position is “wacko,” why wasn’t he permitted to present it in debate with others? They could have proven what a “wacko” he is (if, indeed, he is). Also, you weaken your point by resorting to name calling. I hope you would give the archbishop the benefit of the doubt. And, rest assured, neither St. Patrick’s Seminary or Stanford have been taken over by “wacko MAGA extremists.”
Sound advice, as always.
What is your medical background? You obviously know very little about viruses. It is so small of you to vilify a prominent doctor with your obvious hatred of Trump. Frankly, I don’t see the connection between MAGA and herd immunity.
