Citing Aquinas's common good and the injunction of loving one's neighbor, the church seems committed to doing exactly what it did during the lockdowns and church closures of 2020 - namely, obsequiously obeying and parroting the anti-God global dictatorship and its diktat of none are safe until all are safe.
Other System Christian denominations are either already on the same page or will shortly be on the same page regarding peck exemptions.
Also, in a most serendipitous turn of events, Cardinal Burke - who is adamantly and vocally opposed to the totalitarian agenda and the peck - has apparently caught the birdemic bug and is reported to be on a ventilator fighting for his life. Needless to say, the System's media wasted no time drawing attention to the sweet irony of the 'conspiratorial' cardinal's supposed medical misfortune.
Of course, none of the above should surprise anyone. We are currently in what I have described as the "siege" stage of the peck program. The main goal of the siege is to convince everyone to consent to the peck via the System's "think, feel, do" campaign - and religious leaders play a big role within the campaign's framework.
I believe all of what I have briefly outlined above - which is but a fragment of the siege and the Establishment's overarching goal to peck the entire world - is directly connected to the development of consciousness and the unfolding silent schism between System Christianity and Non-System Christianity.
I am under the impression that Christians who continue to obediently follow their church leaders regarding the peck and other litmus test issues will remain grounded in "obedience" consciousness, in which they will continue to surrender freedom to an external authority for the purpose of providing for the greater good.
Christians at this level of consciousness generally do not and will not regard freedom as a high value, and will freely and willingly surrender it in exchange for other values they perceive to be higher than freedom - values such as safety, health, security, comfort, and convenience.
Christians possessing obedience consciousness interpret divine-human destiny largely as a matter of submission to the supreme authority of God via the external institutions that represent this supreme authority in the world. The institutions themselves are seen as the only meaningful way through which an individual can relate to God. The role of the divine is to dictate; the role of a good Christian is to obey.
Non-System Christians, on the other hand, are likely to nurture a consciousness attuned to freedom and love. Not freedom to do or love whatever the individual wishes, but rather freedom and love that is based on successful alignment of the divine self with God and the successful distancing of the objectification and determinism of the given world. Unlike obedience consciousness, "freedom" consciousness is at once autonomous, meaning it emanates primarily from the self, and also theandric, meaning it works jointly with the divine.
Simplified, System Christians believe man does not possess the potential or the capacity to become a co-creator with God. The best a Christian can do is to accomplish "good works" via obedience to the external, given world of the System.
On the flip side, Non-System Christians recognize that most of the "good works" accomplished via obedience to the external, given world of the System are anything but "good" and understand that the current push to incorporate everyone and everything into the System is inherently evil. The true path of Christianity for Non-System Christians lies in freedom and love - that is, in the freedom to be "with" God, and in the love needed to be able to co-create with God.
System Christians ultimately regard the inclusion agenda as vital to their faith whereas Non-System Christians know the inclusion agenda to be akin to spiritual death.
Note added: The difference between System and Non-System Christians does not boil down to churchgoing and non-churchgoing, denominational or non-denominational, liberal or traditional. The difference boils down to motivation and thinking.
