He’s going viral.

A Mexican cardinal’s Facebook video was flagged after he said COVID vaccines were being used to implant satanic microchips in people.

Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñiguez, 87, claimed vaccines come with a microchip that has “the mark of the beast.”

Facebook put a warning screen over Sandoval’s Jan. 12 video, noting it “repeats information about COVID-19 that independent fact checkers say is false.”

Sandoval was archbishop of Guadalajara for 17 years before retiring in 2011. He continued to espouse conservative viewpoints afterward, holding a “nationwide exorcism” after Mexico legalized same-sex marriage in 2015.

He’s also been spreading bogus COVID information throughout the pandemic, according to the National Catholic Reporter.

Sandoval was part of the papal conclaves that elected Pope Benedict XVI in 2005 and Pope Francis in 2013.
