Anti-vaccine megachurch
Do we need anymore proof that ignorance and faith go hand-in hand?

Can I opt for less proof, please?

Can we make a megachurch vaccine? That may be a noble price winning solution

The problem isn't creating the vaccine. The problem is convincing people -- even the crazy ones -- to get themselves and their kids inoculated.

There was a thing on British news about a similar American style Evangelical or Pentecostal church in the UK telling HIV patients to stop taking their medication... all this "faith healing" bullshit again.

Does anyone besides me have the balls to say, "Thanks for the one instance of anecdotal proof"? Smile Is that really how you freethinkers employ logic? "Look, one more incident that proves faith is stupid! Now I have two, counting my decoversion testimony of how people proved to me they were god and god disappointed me therefore through people!" Have you thoroughly investigated the Texas incident too, for its falsifiability?

I mean really, for everyone example of a moronic church there must be 1,000 (there's a lot of churches in this world, people) that has courageous, thinking people who believe in evolution AND love their neighbor AND clean up their Mean Streets (shout out to DeNiro and Scorsese's 1973 classic starring Harvey Keitel).

Peace out.

If it weren't for the innocent kids who can't choose non-moronic parents I'd say have at it. In fact I'd encourage people to have to face the real life consequences slapping them in the face for their delusional outlook on life.
