Vienna Cardinal Dismisses Deacon Who Democratically Criticised Forced Vaccinations

Vienna's Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, dismissed (January 19) Uwe Eglau, an unpaid deacon, whom he hypocritically called a "dear confrere", from his service in the police chaplaincy.

Eglau is a courageous critic of the vaccination scare passed in Austria on Thursday. In lockstep with the regime, Schönborn wrote him:

"Your public expressions of opinion regarding the government measures to combat the Corona pandemic in the form of an open letter to the Federal Minister of the Interior or through your public appearance at the Corona demonstration on 15 January are liable to be misinterpreted as the official position of the Catholic Church, and thus may subsequently cause damage to the relationship of church and state in the area of police chaplaincy, which is characterised by mutual trust."

Schönborn's claim that a courageous deacon could be confused with Austria's cowardly and opportunistic bishops is preposterous.

Austria is the sixth country in the world to enforce compulsory vaccination, along with Micronesia, New Caledonia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and the Vatican.

Is this such a bad thing? Was he dismissed by servants of the "schismatic, covidian and false church of darkness" or the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church? Perhaps, after death, this brave deacon will be wearing his dismissal letter as a silver star for valor on Judgement Day.
@John A Cassani ...and since, in practice, that's how their authority works, open criticism of a bishop by a subordinate has its risks.

@Werte The only tradition they believe in is the one about a bishop’s absolute authority.

All these leftist cardinals - who usually tolerate just about everything - seem to be pretty authoritative when someone disagrees with them.
