FARGO — I have the privilege of hosting a talk radio show every day. On our show, a hot topic lately has been Sanford Health's requirement that, on Nov. 1, all staff will need to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Did you know that Sanford Health has a reaction rate from the COVID vaccines of 0.03%? That’s amazing. If you are in the 0.03% crowd, it stinks. But there is risk in everything and that’s an amazingly low number.

Your accident rate from driving is probably higher than that. Maybe flying, too.

Yet we still worry. Why? Honest question? Why do we worry about all of this? Does that fix anything?

Donald Trump and his blunt force voice took on the FDA and Big Pharma. All while fending off fraud Dr. Anthony Fauci. Don’t we conservatives trust Trump?

A listener texted us recently:

“Go to the VAERS website your numbers are WAY low. The 'vaccination' has killed and crippled more people than any other in history. Israel records that 84% of new cases have gotten the jab. Add it all up: open borders. Cities burning. A two tiered 'justice' system. A stolen election. 'Schools' at all levels indoctrination camps. The war on coal, oil, family farms: all the means to support human life & society. Suppression of cures for covid. Not sure what needs to happen. Maybe you're too nice a guy for this fight.

"Sorry. I realize you can only do and say so much on the air. It's quite a thing to see this open assault on freedom and Christianity on every front. Did you know in Canada 50 churches have been burned in the last month? Please forgive my lapses of patience, I-and many others-appreciate the free and open forum for ideas and solutions. A vanishing breed. Keep up the good work.”

My response:

You are correct about all of the reasons to worry. But if you worry about all of this, all you will do is ... worry.

I’m not afraid to die, because with God’s divine mercy I believe I know where I am going. I’m a sinner saved by grace. I’m Catholic and go to confession at least twice a month. I’m far from perfect. Obviously. Why else would I need to go to confession twice a month? I just read the Bible to say be humble, kind and repent of your sins and you’ll be welcomed to heaven. So I’m not afraid to die.

That requires some trust. And there are some people who have done the things you describe that should be brought to justice.

But justice is God’s job, not ours. Let go, and let God.

Fauci is being exposed by the day. Good. He’s not more powerful than God.

For now, we at least have health freedom to say yes or no to the vaccine. Inform yourself and your loved ones, talk to your doctor and leave the rest to God! Make your own decisions.

P.S. I’ll never, ever apologize for being too nice!
