Facebook has placed a warning screen over a rambling chat by retired Mexican Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iiguez in which he claims vaccines contain a satanic microchip.

The Facebook screen warns viewers, "This post repeats information about COVID-19 that independent fact checkers say is false. However, viewers on Saturday could still see the video, which was posted Jan. 12.

Sandoval Iiguez is the emeritus archbishop of the archdiocese of Guadalajara, where he retired in 2011 after reaching the age of 75. He turns 88 in March.

In the video, he refers to the chip that they are planning to put in the vaccine to control you, it is the mark of the beast.

The video is titled, The plot to impose a new world order without Christ. He also makes an unclear reference to a supposed smallpox vaccine held at a laboratory in the United States.
