BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI – Talk show host Claude O. Skelton-Cline has called on Christians and others in the Virgin Islands (VI) to accept that vaccination is the answer to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our way out of this… is gainful employment but the precursor to gainful employment is vaccination. The help that Jehovah has sent in this pandemic is vaccination,” he told listeners on the March 2, 2020, episode of the ‘Honestly Speaking’ show.

Touching on the need for citizens to get vaccinated as a matter of priority, Skelton-Cline pointed out that while some are awaiting divine intervention regarding the pandemic, the answer is already in the VI.

“Those of you who are still waiting for God to send a helicopter, the plane, the boat, the canoe… Whatever it is you think God is sending, I want you to understand something; the vaccination is it, you got to get the vaccination,” he said.

Breakdown of vaccination numbers by race - Skelton-Cline 

Meanwhile, the man of the cloth called for a race demographic breakdown of the vaccination numbers thus far, while accusing black Virgin Islanders of being 'crazy' for believing pseudo-theories about the vaccine.

He also called for citizens to stop peddling falsehoods, including that taking COVID-19 vaccination is the ‘mark of the beast,’ “this is the help that God has sent out of this pandemic,” Skelton-Cline remarked.

“So I want to say to the Government, I want to say to all the Members of the Opposition… encourage your people, be seen to be receiving the vaccine, use whatever podium or pulpit or platform you have to encourage the people of this Virgin Islands to get vaccinated.”

As of March 2, 2021, 4,450 persons in the Virgin Islands received the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, according to the latest update from Government.

    Not often I agree with him, but he is exactly right on this. Get vaccinated.

    And btw , when a mosquito bites you, you don’t feel it. The jab is exactly the same. You don’t feel it.

    everything that needed to be known about this gentleman was confirmed when September 2020 came and went, and no sign of the food shortage that was predicted in grand fashion at that time came to pass. Jehovah is in full observation. But keep it up.

    The Cure is in the messaging,,,,, Bill Gates control world health organization and world health organization control the messaging, Bill Gates is the # 1 beneficiary of the vaccine,, already get over 30 billions in vaccine research and vaccine stock investment, ,I undertand Bill Gates position, because he is paying out Billions a year to world health organization staff in salaries and its only fair that he he gets his money back with profit, so every 2 - 3 yrs something comes up for him to get a big pay day, Ebola came up, Obama gave them 3 billion for research and vaccine there is no vaccine but it went away because the messenger pull the the bad and negative messaging back,, Obama understand their plan and he warned us, So,, here lies the problem, the Media, Doctors and Politicians are all either manipulated or paid into saying what World health organization wants them to say, Now the Vaccine is been accepted as Bill Gates wanted, the messaging is changing slowly and the covid slowly disappearing,,... Bill Gates world health Organization already received 300 billion for Aids research and vaccine to date there is no vaccine but the messaging changed, u dont hear about aids, these things still exist,, The news recently reported Hospitals are changing the real reason why people die to "Covid death" They are countries we dont know about that are doing well living normal lives that we dont know about, because the message controller doesnt want the good news out,,, the news must be bad, scary and fearful as to drive the people into vaccine submission,, They are a few African countries, that said to World health organization no to mask and no to vaccine and are doing well. The news wouldn't tell us that, like I say,. Thats not what they want us to know...

    I wish this guy would use his platform for something more beneficial. That's the reason why God would never allow some people to be in some of the highest positions of government. Could you imagine if this man was the Premiere of these islands. Or if he had a seat in the House of Assembly? He would have already change our laws to make this vaccine mandatory. So controlling!!!!

    The Center where I had my vaccine done, everyone was very professional and answered all my care and concern in a very professional manner. The only thing is after taking the vaccine, I had to go home and sleep for a while. Other than that, no side affects or anything.

    I've noticed some churches which condemn abortion are turning a blind eye to the fetal cell lines used in the development and RNA in the AstraZeneca Vaccine. Makes you wonder who really calling the 'shots'.

      Fake news @‘x’. During the development some kidney cells from and aborted 1976 fetus were used to develop the vaccine’factory’ and then were removed. None - I repeat none use any stem or aborted cells in the vaccines produced for Covid-19. They way some of you spread fear and propaganda is unreal! Since primary school we’ve all taken vaccines- now all of a sudden the conspiracy nutters have become scientists and quoting from unsubstantiated sites/authors. Gtfoh wid y’all BS.

        Fetal cell lines labeled HEK293 were used in the development of the AstraZeneca Vaccine and in human trials.

        "*Recombinant, replication-deficient chimpanzee adenovirus vector encoding the SARS CoV 2 Spike glycoprotein. Produced in genetically modified human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells.

        This product contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs)."

        The scientific definition of an organism is a living entity (at least one cell). So if they say its only MRNA in there, why admit to containing whole organisms??

    And I’m not taking that vaccine ever ima die first.

    Btw did u all see the news Oxfordshire is racing to make needles vaccines and it’s the size of a rice grain


    The effort to vaccinate the world against Covid-19 relies on the syringe and needle, using a 19th-century technology to get 21st-century science into the arms of billions. Now the race is on to find alternatives.

    Executives such as David Hipkiss sense an opportunity. His firm, Enesi Pharma Ltd. of Oxfordshire, England, is developing a device that painlessly implants a vaccine-imbued tube of sugars smaller than a grain of rice under the skin.

    The pandemic has sparked a research-and-development gold rush in vaccines. Developers of novel vaccine-delivery technology hope that they are next, and that the drive to inoculate the planet will shower them with investment dollars and entice big-name partners with deep pockets who can help bring their products to market.

    Theirs is a field littered with development misfires and costly gadgets that, for decades, failed to unseat the simple needle, syringe and glass vial. Aside from the occasional nasal spray for flu or sugar lump for polio, the hypodermic needle has been the mainstay of protecting against infectious disease since it was pioneered by a Dublin physician in 1844.

    Your bible says in 1 Pet 4:17 judgement will begin at the house of God. Because we have people like you leading the flock astray. And it’s not enough that you are blind you are trying to blind the entire Church, by asking pastors to use their pulpit and podium to sanction this assault on humanity. You would get what’s coming to you and your generation. Even God gives man free will and you are pushing and agenda that’s taking away free will. This is demonic. Many of you Christians voted for the Democrats knowing their agenda on critical topics. You all hated Trump. Sometimes you have to ignore the messenger for the greater good. You all will be responsible also for every abortion that occurs. The defiance to the creator through the HR1 bill is squarely on you’all shoulders. See what happened during Irma and Maria. Most of the churches blowed down. Sign of an angry God at His Church. Where is the light to lighten and enlighten the world. Stay off the media and go prayer and fast. What’s in it for you.

    You see we must understand that God is not the author of confusion but of peace with the saints within the church this vaccine is not the mark of the beast but it is paving the way sooner or later wen the government makes it mandatory the time will where each of us will make a decision. A time is coming wen the government is going to put the pressure on the people your employer will have the right to terminate your services you will not be able to go to the bank for your own money etc. This time will be if whoever take the vaccine will follow the government protocol but those who refuse will face persecution and suffering but still it is not the mark of the beast. The mark of the beast will be the issue of worship in these last days which is being obedient to God ten commandments that's included keeping God holy sabbath day or being obedient to man in keeping Sunday as the day of rest my friend keep God's commandments and his words and you will be protected throughout these last days on earth jesus is coming very soon repent and be baptized and be faithful unto him and you will have everlasting life but if you reject christ you will be in everlasting condemnation.
