Last year, the Vatican called for Puerto Rican Bishop Fernández Torres to resign after he was caught telling Catholics that they can refuse Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” in good conscience. When he refused, Pope Francis stepped in and removed Torres himself.
According to reports, Pope Francis removed Torres, an outspoken conservative Catholic from the Diocese of Arecibo, without any formal proceedings. Pope Francis simply said Torres disobeyed him and demonstrated a “lack of collegiality,” to quote LifeSiteNews, with fellow Puerto Rican bishops.
The Holy See announced that Pope Francis has “relieved” the Arecibo bishop from pastoral care as of March 9 due to Torres’ refusal to accept and promote Fauci Flu shots, which contain ingredients made from aborted human babies.
The 57-year-old bishop is a staunch defender of life and family who vehemently opposes covid injection mandates. Torres is now protesting his removal by Pope Francis as “totally unjust,” having issued a statement about how he could not in good conscience “be an accomplice of a totally unjust action.”

“No process has been made against me,” Torres wrote, “nor have I been formally accused of anything, and simply one day the apostolic delegate verbally communicated to me that Rome was asking me to resign.”
Torres had led the Diocese of Arecibo for nearly 12 years before getting axed by Pope Francis for refusing to promote Big Pharma poisons.
“A successor of the apostles is now being replaced without even undertaking what would be a due canonical process to remove a parish priest.”

Torres went on to state that the Vatican told him he had committed no actual crime, but that he was being removed for not being “obedient to the pope.” Torres also says he was accused of having “insufficient communion with my brother bishops of Puerto Rico.”
“It was suggested to me that if I resigned from the Diocese, I would remain at the service of the Church in case at some time I was needed in some other position; an offer that in fact proves my innocence,” Torres added.
“However, I did not resign because I did not want to become an accomplice of a totally unjust action and that even now, I am reluctant to think that it could happen in our Church.”
Torres further blasted the Catholic Church for its hypocrisy in preaching mercy but failing to show it in practice. He also chastised Pope Francis and the Vatican for lacking “a minimum sense of justice.”
“I express my communion in the Catholic faith, with the Pope and my brothers in the episcopate, despite my perplexity at an incomprehensible arbitrariness,” he further added.
The Vatican summoned Torres for a meeting in Rome, to which he declined. The bishop is also resisting sending seminarians to the Interdiocesan Seminary of Puerto Rico, which the Vatican approved in 2020.
Torres’ dismissal came after he declined to join a statement issued by Puerto Rico’s six other Catholic bishops announcing that Mass-goers would, from now on, be segregated based on their injection status.
That same letter, which Torres refused to sign, also imposed a strict covid jab mandate for both clergy and Church employees, claiming that “there is no basis” in Catholic teaching for anyone to reject forced injections.
“Respect for the conscience of the person is also Catholic doctrine,” Torres wrote, citing The Catechism of the Catholic Church. “Conscience, and its freedom, cannot be considered only as a civil right but is something intrinsic to our Catholic faith.”

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
