Are anti-vaccine people conspiracy theorists generally? - page 20

I have an old friend from years ago who I now keep in touch with on Facebook. Her posts are fascinating in the amazing variety of conspiracy theories, some outrageous, some maybe partially true.... Read More

    Not wanting to repeat herself because you were too lazy to read the evidence she already provided is not a cop out.

    You're lost? It's alright, don't trouble yourself.
    She was lost because what you said made absolutely zero sense.

    It's interesting that public health is not at stake apparently when it comes to HIV or even full-blown AIDS.
    I have absolutely no clue what you mean by this comment.

    And I was the poster who said you're throwing your religious beliefs into the discussion in an illogical way, for what it's worth, not wtbcrna. You stated that HPV could be prevented if people abstained from having sex, as if that should be the sole solution. Most people don't believe in or practice abstinence until marriage, but luckily there are still ways to prevent HPV---the Gardasil vaccine, and condom use---that don't involve imposing sexual repression on others.

    And the Duggars??? Really? You're actually defending the beliefs of that family? Are you unaware of the fact that the oldest son sexually abused several of his younger sisters for years, and that the family didn't approach the police about it for several more years? Do you think their arcane beliefs about sexuality could possibly be related to this?

    I tried to stay out of this discussion, but you had me at "Duggars". What kind of a person could admire a family who covered up the sexual abuse of their daughters by the older brother? You can't pretend it didn't happen or pray the abuse away. Despicable.

    Back to the topic of the thread, I don't know if anti-vaxxers believe in other conspiracy theories, but they've certainly bought into one of the most dangerous theories out there. One that has been debunked time and time again. Countless lives have been saved by vaccines. Those who choose not to vaccinate their children should be prepared to home school them, and keep them out of public places. They are putting their own children at risk and those that cannot be immunized or have immune disorders. Make your choice, but realize that choices have consequences. Health care workers and ancillary staff should be mandated to have the flu vaccine, or wear masks. If you feel your freedom is being violated, then how about the freedom and safety of those who are vulnerable and compromised?

    Again this is real-time evidence of the OP's question.
