Did Pope Francis Declare “God Hates Antivaxxers”?!

Did Pope Francis just declare that God hates antivaxxers?! Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Pope Francis Declares God Hates Antivaxxers!

People are sharing an article (archive) by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), which claims that Pope Francis just declared that God hates antivaxxers!

Here is an excerpt of that long and (intentionally???) confusing article:

Truth : Pope Francis Did Not Declare God Hates Antivaxxers!

This is yet another example of fake news created / promoted by The People’s Voice, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Pope Francis Did Not Declare God Hates Antivaxxers!

Let me start by simply pointing out that Pope Francis never once declared that God hates antivaxxers.

If Pope Francis actually said that, it would have been reported all over the world. Yet, there no legitimate news report that Pope Francis ever made such remarks.

Pope Francis clearly said that people had the “choice” of whether to get vaccinated or not. He merely stated, in his opinion, that being against the vaccine was “an almost suicidal act of denial“.

Deciding whether to get vaccinated is always an ethical choice, but I know that many people signed up to movements opposed to the administration of the medication. This distressed me because in my view, being against the antidote is an almost suicidal act of denial.

Pope Francis also never labelled people who refused to take the COVID-19 vaccines as “heretics”.

Unsurprisingly, The People’s Voice article provided no evidence to back up its “fact checked” claim.

Fact #2 : Vatican Visitors No Longer Need Green Pass

The People’s Voice article claimed that Vatican visitors must show a “Super Green Pass” in order to enter. That’s not accurate.

On 2 June 2022, the Vatican issued a decree allowing most employees and visitors to enter without a vaccination certificate, or proof of recovery.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican secretary of state, said that “entry to the dicasteries, bodies and offices that make up the Roman Curia and the institutions connected with the Holy See is permitted without the obligation” of having the vaccine certificate known as a “super green pass.”

Therefore, visitors have been permitted to visit the Vatican without any Super Green Pass since 2 June 2022 – over 1.5 years ago!

Fact #3 : Vatican Visitors Do Not Need Face Masks

The People’s Voice article also claimed that Pope Francis required visitors to wear “FFP2 and N95 masks in all enclosed spaces on Vatican territory, and he does not permit religious exemption to vaccination or masks“. That is also not accurate.

The same 2 June 2022 decree removed the face mask requirement at the Vatican City – wearing face masks indoors, or at large gatherings were no longer required. It only “strongly recommended” that employees and visitors wear a face mask indoors, or at large gatherings.

Cardinal Parolin also eased the Vatican’s mask requirements, decreeing that wearing masks indoors or in large gatherings, while no longer required, “is strongly recommended.”

Nevertheless, “the obligation to comply with health requirements regarding hand sanitation and the frequent ventilation and periodic sanitization of rooms remains,” the decree said.

The only face mask mandate that appears to be in effect is for vaccinated employees who become close contacts of COVID-19 positive people. They can continue working, but are required to wear FFP2 face masks indoors:

… vaccinated employees who have had contact with someone who is positive can go to work immediately but they are required to wear high-filtering FFP2 masks indoors

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Is Known For Fake News

The People’s Voice is the current name for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited after posting numerous shocking but fake stories.

Founded as Your News Wire in 2014, it was rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018, before becoming The People’s Voice. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should never share anything from NewsPunch / The People’s Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I fact checked earlier:
