Do they really verify that you are actually a member?  I can't imagine them calling the church and asking, save your twenty five dollars and just say it's against my religion.
But then what's the point of the law if you can get around it that easily?

Bringing your unvaccinated kids to a public school is a health risk. To all of the children, including your own.

If it's okay to just intentionally harm people in the name of religion, then my religion says I have to punch anti-vax parents in the throat and then hand the kids over to public health for vaccination.

So how about we keep religion out of it and just abide by the laws?

"body is a sacred space" and preaches "the rejection of orthodox vaccination, for both adults, children and animals".

So you are going to put not only my kids at risk because of your galloping stupidity, but my pets also...

HELL NO!

This "church" doesn't believe in vaccinating animals, as well as people.
How long until members start getting cited, and their pets seized, for not getting rabies and other required shots?

And are there a religious exemptions in the laws requiring animals to be innoculated?

Anyone got any strains of measles or chicken pox we could wipe all over the pews of the "Church of Conscious Living"?

Of course it would only hurt the kids of those parents since the parents already have their shots.  Fark you I got mine!

On one hand I'm not at all supportive of the idea that the government can decide what is and isn't a religion.

On the other hand,  just because its your religious belief doesn't mean you can let your kid pose a danger to other kids.
 
2013-05-30 12:20:25 PM  
Put the unvaccinated kids in their own classroom/lunch time it won't stop the risk of transmission but it will help. If you live in a large enough district give them their own school.

Solution to the solution: Don't make exceptions to the vaccination requirement for religious beliefs. Viruses don't give a shiat what religion you follow.
 
2013-05-30 12:23:12 PM  
No officer, my religion incorporates ritual sacrifice, so it's ok I killed those 4 children.

//Not fundamentally different from what anti-vaccers are saying.

How does the government deal with the "anti medical treatment" religious nuts? Can parents let their kids die of cancer without getting treatment that would save them due to religious beliefs?

Some of them end up on negligence and manslaughter charges, and rightfully so.

Though, frankly, a deliberate refusal to seek medical attention sounds rather premeditated to me.

Ant: Viruses don't give a shiat what religion you follow.


Neither do your neighbors when they catch a disease from your ignorant asses.
There should be no exemption for religious reasons.
I think that is in the constitution.

Just make it a congressional law that the little tards have to be vaccinated.
When I was  kid, if you saw a kid that didn't have a round dot on the arm for polio, you asked them where it was. They had better show you an alternative scar on their thigh, or you reported their ass right away.
fark that shiat, religious exemption. they need a kick in the bawls and forced sterilization for that shait.

Dunno about the Aussies, but here's how I think it went down:

1) Europe spends about 300 years ripping itself apart over religion.
2) Most of Europe (France to a certain extent being the oddball exception even to this day) and as a result the culturally white/European colonies (US, Australlia) basically goes "Live and let live.  Don't screw with me and I won't screw with you."
3) One of the corollaries of that is that "I can't force you to do anything that's against your religion".

So we get odd things like the Amish not having to pay Social Security, or in this case, people who "believe" in non-vaccination getting to literally kill people.

This is perfect. When people abuse the privileges afforded to religion we'll be forced to take them away. We'll finally be able to give religion the respect it deserves - none.
 
2013-05-30 02:00:26 PM  
The comments are a hoot.  I love the "if they play in the dirt and socialize, they will get naturally vaccinated, like they did in the past."

The idiots never connect to the simple fact that, before vaccination, those diseases killed us. For the folks it didn't kill, they enjoyed everything from miscarriages to permanent disability. We spent thousands of years "playing in the dirt and socializing", and yet we continued to suffer from those diseases. Vaccination comes along, and voila! Some of those diseases are virtually extinct.

This is what happens when you fix a problem so well that morons forget about the problem itself - those morons end up recreating the very situation that caused or promoted the problem in the first place. It's the medical version of Y2K.

If the people in the 14th century had just played in the dirt more and not used so many antibiotics and hand sanitizers then the black death wouldn't have wiped out 30% of the population of Europe.

The only thing I'd apologize for is ejaculating on her centerfold in my roommate's issue of Playboy. Sorry, dude, I still owe you for that copy. :-)

Religion gets a free pass on a lot of things.

Want to abuse your kids both mentally and physically? Religion!
Want to create a public health hazard? Religion!
Want to claim tax-exempt status, but still endorse political candidates? Religion!

I love the argument that because money is being made off of vaccinations that that somehow means they're unnecessary. Money is made off of food and water too.

From a public safety standpoint, that's the worst idea because now you have a little pocket of unvaccinated children.  If one of them happens to get a disease, now you have an outbreak that can spread to kids who were vaccinated but the vaccines didn't take or couldn't be vaccinated due to immune disorders or whatnot.

If we put a fence around their special school and never let them out, we won't have an outbreak problem.

Does step 3 involve purposely releasing small pox into the enclosed school?

Logically, step 4 would involve fire bombing the area a few weeks later.

meyerkev: Dunno about the Aussies, but here's how I think it went down:


The World Health Organization actually declared Australia measles-free back in 2005 and 2007 but thanks to "Dr" Wakefield and some people importing anti-vaccination idiocy from the US and UK that status may not hold. I'm not sure how immigration skews things - I haven't looked into that but I would suspect it's having an impact.

/subby
//was so angry when I read the article I almost commented on it
 
2013-05-30 07:36:44 PM  
Let's gather up all the anti-vaccination nuts and stick them on their very own island so they won't cause health problems for the rest of the world.

I suggest Bikini Island.

FTFA: "This is a sham church that has clearly been set up by those who refuse to vaccinate their children and seek an exemption from the law," Mr Robertson said.


Make sure you know the difference between a sham church and a real church, kiddies.

Sham church:  Send in $25 because you think vaccines are icky and Jenny McCarthy told you to.
Real church:  Send in 10 percent of your income each week because you think gays are icky and a man in a white muumuu talking to an invisible sky fairy told you to.

Just FYI, rabies shots are not required in Australia. Australia is rabies free.

iduno, i think they should be able to open a daycare specifically for those who make this choice and are excluded from other daycares, and it sounds like this rule would preclude that.
