Islamification of vaccines - Part 2

This post is inspired by a tweet:


Pointing out another facet of the Islamification of vaccines ... though in all fairness this one may not have been the deliberate lying of taqqiya, but rather, a "journalist" who did not do sufficient fact-checking prior to writing the editorial (aka: article).

There have been no deaths attributed to the "Disneyland" measles outbreak of 2014 - if there had been we would still be hearing about it.

A number of patients were intentionally unvaccinated ... and have now recovered and as a result will benefit from a lifetime of immunity. The intentionally vaccinated bore the risks of receiving the vaccine yet did not derive any benefit.  43% of cases had an unknown or undocumented vaccination status ... but given vaccination rates for MMR at ~92% it would be fair to suspect that a significant portion of this 43% had at least 1 dose of MMR vaccine which would impact estimates of "efficacy" negatively. The "solution" to this problem is always more vaccination ... a solution drug companies like - and this positive feedback loop has lead to the development of an ever increasing array of vaccines - most of which will no doubt also need to be given in repeated "boosters" in order to maintain "efficacy" - now that's a business model, especially since there is zero liability for any risk and/or failure of said products.

Those who advocate forced vaccination seem to be downright Machiavellian in their pursuit of achieving the vaccination of one and all, so they may not care if the deceit was inadvertent or unintentional.

It's a pity more journalists are not following the example of Sharyl Attkisson and Lawrence Solomon, who have written about vaccines with far greater balance and attention to little details referred to as facts.

The truth has nothing to fear from the lie ... regardless of whether the lie is deliberate or accidental. And the truth does not fear fact checking or the challenging of assumptions - two things that send chills down the spines of advocates of forced vaccination.

Focus - on the truth not fearing the lie

Background: The last week has brought another micro-controversy regarding vaccination, this time (primarily) inside the sub-culture of evangelical Christianity, specifically the niche of those who follow the para-church organization, Focus on the Family (founded by Dr. James Dobson). Thriving Families is one of their publications. In the April/May 2015 edition of their Thriving Families one of their medical advisers answered a question about vaccination.  A blogger, Megan Heimer (http://www.livingwhole.org) published this response, "Dear Focus On the Family, You're On the Wrong Side of the Vaccine Controversy". It has gone viral and has been shared >10,000 times. According to Ms. Heimer, Focus on the Family (FOTF) has been deleting references to her post that have been shared or posted on FOTF's Facebook page - and that is the topic of today's post.

This post was written Sunday April 19, 2015 at 1830 (6:30pm EST) and I was able to find several links (at least 6 as of when this post was written) to Ms. Heimer's blog post - all posted by the same person (Charissa Kelly), each post with ~3-5 "likes", all posted on April 17 at 1435 (2:35pm), so the links have been up for at least 2 days - and all posted under a topic posted by FOTF, and unrelated to vaccination or the Thriving Families column to which Ms. Heimer initially responded. At least one of them was on a FOTF post that pre-dated Ms. Heimer's blog post! For the record - I did not contact either Ms. Heimer or FOTF prior to writing this blog post. I did post a comment in her private group (of which I am a member) in MeWe.com in response to her post reporting her allegations about FOTF's response to her blog post.

I'm entirely willing to give Ms. Heimer the benefit of the doubt in regards to her allegations about FOTF's response to her post (that they deleted references/links/posts to her blog about their column) - and it may be they have not yet scrubbed the links I found as I did some basic research/fact checking to write this post. Or perhaps they (FOTF) have received feedback about this tactic and have decided to abandon it. It's also inappropriate to post a link unrelated to the primary topic - though people might not feel the need to do that if posts were not being deleted.

While FOTF has every right to control the content of their page it is disingenuous to delete comments in response to something they published! I could find no guidelines on their Facebook page regarding any comment policy. Ms. Heimer's post was not disrespectful, nor inflammatory - she was clear and specific in how and why she disagreed with Dr. Hinthorn's column, and she provided links for supportive documentation/back-up for what she wrote.

Jesus did not shy away from any controversy and He does not fear our questions, instead He welcomes them. The truth has nothing to fear from the lie, and resorting to this sort of tactic (if true) reveals an insecurity about their position. He designed us to live in freedom and He respects our decisions even when they cause us pain and grieve Him - even if/when our decisions are sinful.

Christians are increasingly being scrubbed from public discourse (the marketplace of ideas) because positions conforming to a biblical worldview are contrary to the politically correct ideology that is increasingly dominant. It isn't surprising that non-Christians do not want their ideas challenged. It is surprising, and disappointing that a Christian organization is alleged to have resorted to suppression of an opinion challenging their own.

The Islamification of vaccination ...

Taqqiya is the Islamic practice of lying, deceiving, or manipulating in order to advance Islam. Since The Truth has nothing to fear from the lie why do those who advocate vaccination feel the need to lie in order to get people to take vaccines?

A former nursing student has now filed a lawsuit against Baker college in Michigan alleging several of their faculty were teaching nursing students that it was acceptable practice to use similar techniques with parents and/or patients in order to obtain the desired result - acceptance of vaccination. She maintains that she was dismissed from the program because she questioned the ethics of this.

The school has not yet officially responded and it seems Ms. Rolfe has strong opinions about many topics. But if what she reports about the nursing program is accurate it is the faculty who need "re-education" about medical ethics, informed consent, nursing's code of ethics and the Nuremberg Code for starters. If what she is stating is accurate the accreditation of the school needs to be reviewed very carefully.

The use of force, deceit, coercion, and manipulation in medicine is not new ... consider the on-going use of forced abortion in China, the (not to distant) history of involuntary sterilization in the United States, the infamous Tuskegee experiments - among others ... all of course, for the greater good!

Given this history if people can be forced, coerced, and/or manipulated into vaccination, what else might people be required to do or receive, or participate in? The lack of freedom to chose to take, or not take a vaccination leads to health dhimmitude.

The proponents of vaccination would make both Muhammed and Machiavelli proud.
