Fauci Explains Why He Doesn't Need Church Anymore, and It's As Arrogant As You Would Think

Dr. Anthony Fauci did an interview recently with the BBC's Katy Kay. 

During the interview, Fauci and Kay were walking down the hallway of a building. Suddenly, he pointed out to her the Catholic chapel where he was married. But then he revealed he didn't go there anymore, and that practicing was a "thing that I don't really need to do."


“A number of complicated reasons,” he said. “First of all, I think my own personal ethics on life are I think enough to keep me going on the right path.”

“And I think there are enough negative aspects about the organizational Church,” he continued. He noted that Kay was “very well aware” of these things, without naming them.

“I’m not against it,” Fauci explained. “I identify myself as a Catholic. I was raised, I was baptized, I was confirmed, I was married in the Church. My children were baptized in the Church.”

“But as far as practicing it, it seems almost like a pro forma thing that I don’t really need to do.”  

Wow, the arrogance of this guy is something else. He's not just talking about whatever the "negative aspects" are, he's saying his "own personal ethics" are "enough." So, he thinks he doesn't need the Church; it isn't something he needs "to do." Talk about the narcissism here.  


The guy who thinks he is science seems to also think he's religion as well.  Remember what he said about being the "science."

“If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science,” Fauci told Chuck Todd back in June last year.

Fauci would go on to say much the same thing on "Face the Nation" in November.

“They’re really criticizing science because I represent the science. That’s dangerous,” he said.

As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said, it was Fauci who was the dangerous one. 

“The absolute hubris of someone claiming THEY represent science. It’s astounding and alarming that a public health bureaucrat would even think to claim such a thing, especially one who has worked so hard to ignore the science of natural immunity,” Paul tweeted after Fauci’s Face the Nation interview.

But, now we can see how deep that hubris reaches with his remarks about religion. 

Joe Biden is the same way, although at least he still goes, while ignoring Catholic dictates on things like abortion and lying.
