Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, “Because I said so!”


In an article by Associate Press at msnbc.com, 2/5/2007, [here], the Texas governor has decided, on his own, to require STD shots of a vaccine [Gardasil, Merck & Co.’s new vaccine], against the sexually transmitted virus [strains of the human papillomavirus, or HPV] that causes cervical cancer, for schoolgirls.

Where does this “Gov. Rick Perry” get off thinking he has the right to issue a command that all sixth grade girls must be given this “wonder drug”?

Granted “Texas allows parents to opt out of inoculations by filing an affidavit objecting to the vaccine on religious or philosophical reasons”, which I would hope includes even this direct order, but why not allow the parents to opt in for inoculations instead of forcing it upon the people?

The argument is not simply “this vaccine will keep women from getting cervical cancer”, but that it is yet another appeal to “youthful lust” – sex before marriage. Whereas scripture says that we should “flee youthful lust” [2 Timothy 2:22], the world is actually making us feel “safe” in our sin. From the idea of handing out condoms in school to making abortion legal for children outside of the knowledge of their parents, the government is yet again refusing to tell our children to abstain from sex outside of marriage by saying, “we will make it safer for you to be promiscuous.” Now if they could only produce a shot against HIV and AIDS, or a “one-shot get-them-all STD shot”.

What about a vaccine for sin? There’s an idea.

I am not against a vaccine, if this really works, but I am against the way they choose to bring it to the people. What happens to these girls if when they do get married they find out the vaccine actually made them sterile, or we find out in a couple of years the side effects are worse than imagined. We can’t simply give them “service pack 2” [upgrade] to solve the problems that could possibly occur as we have seen with other FDA approved medications over the years.

Man’s mind is not geared to repent of sin, but to create ways of cleaving to it by escaping the wages [“wages of sin is death”] of it.

A cure for cervical cancer – I say great! As for how and why it is being used apparently in the mind of Gov. Rick Perry, I object!

We must teach our children that sex outside of marriage is sin against God and unsafe, not that it is okay and that we have made it safer for them.

Ultimate governmental control of the people is coming. Today it is vaccines, spankings, etc. What will you do when it is “no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” [Revelation 13:17]?

By then it will be too late.
Repent and turn to God today!

Tim, don't be a stupid moron.

Cervical cancer can happen to women who do not have extramarital sex. My mum got cervical cancer when she was fifty.

Vaccination for cervical cancer is important, and your immoral religious values can be shoved up in that place where the sun doesn't shine.

You religious folks are so stupid it defies belief.

Without vaccination, do you think we can eradicate small pox? Do you know that just a few people who don't want to go for vaccination puts the rest of us in danger because viruses, if not eradicated, can mutate?

I was doing some research on vaccines and I know you, tim, the hypocritical anti science guy who still hasn't moved to the mountains, will write something like this.

You are really so stupid.

Tim, I haven't been that pissed of late, but seeing morons like you debunk science is infuriating. And it makes me angry, because gullible people believe in folks like you who pander nonsense to the public. And you teach kids, for Jebus's sake.

Before you write anything, do your bloody research. People can die because of idiots spreading silly myths. Idiots like you.

P.S: Yes, if you are guessing, I am pissed. Really pissed.

Beast,

Let me repeat myself (see above):

1. I am not against a vaccine, if this really works, but I am against the way they choose to bring it to the people. What happens to these girls if when they do get married they find out the vaccine actually made them sterile, or we find out in a couple of years the side effects are worse than imagined.

2. A cure for cervical cancer – I say great! As for how and why it is being used apparently in the mind of Gov. Rick Perry, I object!

Let me clarify it for you:

1. The cervical vaccine doesn't cause infertility....there is no evidence to suggest that........and no, autism has nothing to do with vaccination.

2. Cervical cancer is curable, but at a great cost: My mom had her womb removed, and had to undergo terrible chemotherapy. If she had vaccinated herself earlier, it wouldn't have happened.

So, Tim, stop spreading those silly lies. It is bad enough that you are teaching the children in bible class bad science, but teaching kids about bad science that endangers their lives is another thing altogether.

Before a vaccine is introduced to the public, it has to undergo years of severe animal and human testing before it is released to the public. And even then, any chance of a vaccine being harmful to humans, however small, will result in a evaluation of the vaccine.

Vaccination is very important because it helped us eradicate smallpox. I find it appalling the religious idiots are having anti vaccine campaigns, because these people are spreading unnecessary fear.Already in England there is an outbreak of measles because folks like yourself are spreading lies about vaccines.

Tim, you speak so much about morals, but you have none whatsoever, much less ethics. You are a selfish hypocrite who hides behind the bible. You are no better than a mass murderer.

If someone close to you gets cervical cancer, then you will understand why I am so angry at your stupid post.

Yes, Tim, I am furious, really furious. Because you don't understand, you are stupid, and you are sick to the core with religion.

You deserve all my hatred and vitriol towards you.

Beast,

1. I never claimed that cervical cancer only happens to those who have had/are having extramarital sex, but according to the article the vaccine is directed against the human papillomavirus, or HPV sexually transmitted virus.

2. I never claimed that people should not be allowed to take the vaccine, but that people should not be forced to have their sixth grade girls vaccinated.

3. I never claimed that the vaccine does cause infertility, but it is no hidden fact that many vaccines affect people differently and many have been recalled after years of destroying the health of persons.

I can understand you being upset that your mother had cervical cancer, and had to endure the treatment for such. I don’t mind praying for her if you would like, but becoming angry with me and/or my post regarding an article from two years ago does not help your mother or the fight against cancer in any way.

Your mother being diagnosed with cervical cancer was not the fault of religion or me, for one you don’t even believe in God or Christianity. Why not be mad at science for not creating a cure sooner, or even evolution for not having abolished the mutation of cancer long ago?

You are angry, I get that.
You are furious, I get that.
Why not use the energy to do something positive for your mother you love, or to help find a cure for cancer? Taking your anger and fury out on me is wasting precious time you could be sharing in a more positive fashion elsewhere. I am sorry you have so much anger…may you one day release it and be free.

Of course I am angry. Just the sight of ignoranamous writings like this makes me angry.

1. "I never claimed that cervical cancer only happens to those who have had/are having extramarital sex, but according to the article the vaccine is directed against the human papillomavirus, or HPV sexually transmitted virus."

So? What's your problem with that? If there's a vaccine to prevent that, by all means people should be vaccinated against the disease.

2. "I never claimed that people should not be allowed to take the vaccine, but that people should not be forced to have their sixth grade girls vaccinated."

Do you not know that all it takes is just one, just one child who is not vaccinated, which will allow the disease to spread? Its the same case with measles: In England now measles are on a dramatic rise because some parents refuse to let their children get a measles jab. You sure like human suffering a lot, do you?

3. "I never claimed that the vaccine does cause infertility, but it is no hidden fact that many vaccines affect people differently and many have been recalled after years of destroying the health of persons."

Really? Where is the proof? Many? It is true that isolated cases of allergy to vaccines do exist, but to say that "many" children are affected by vaccines is just a blatant lie from folks like you.

"I can understand you being upset that your mother had cervical cancer, and had to endure the treatment for such. I don’t mind praying for her if you would like, but becoming angry with me and/or my post regarding an article from two years ago does not help your mother or the fight against cancer in any way."

Forget your stupid prayers. My mum underwent chemotherapy and had her cervix removed to prevent a relapse.

"Your mother being diagnosed with cervical cancer was not the fault of religion or me, for one you don’t even believe in God or Christianity. Why not be mad at science for not creating a cure sooner, or even evolution for not having abolished the mutation of cancer long ago?"

As usual, your comprehension is way beyond the pale. Why should I be angry with Science which endeavors towards ending human suffering? I am angry with you because you spread ignorance and utter stupidity on your blog.

You don't want me to be angry? Well, close your stupid blog, go back to the mountains where you should belong, and leave this sinful world to people who know how to enjoy it. You obviously know nothing and talk very big. And you are right that I am very very pissed.

And a pissed animal is not what you want, believe you me.

Should anyone blame gravity for someone who fell off the edge of the cliff?

Again, Tim, your failure to understand even basic science is astonishing. I hope you don't past down your stupidity to the next generation.

The world does not need morons the likes of YOU.

Again, this is a bloody lie, and you know it.

Very few people do suffer from allergies to vaccines, far fewer than people can die from driving accidents. Are you suggesting that people don't drive too????

BEAST FCD said...

Do you even know how small pox was eradicated from the face of the earth? Yup. Vaccines did it.

Tim, you must forgive me for saying this, but you are the worst moron I have encountered in my 30 yrs living on this planet.

BEAST FCD said...

And the thing is you still don't understand why I am furious. I am furious because idiots like you pass on the wrong information to kids everywhere, and these kids do stupid things you guys tell them to and they end up dead, either from HIV virus because you morons tell them that condoms are evil agents from hell, or polio or some other disease that can be prevented with a vaccinated shot in the first place.

Tim, where is your bloody conscience??? You talk about morals all day long but you are the worst creep I have ever encountered. You have no sense of shame and morality. Go kill yourself.

Beast,

People often go through class and testing before receiving a driver license, whereas such is not always done when people are given vaccines. This way if people fail the test, they aren’t given a license. But with vaccines, people are usually given them, and then wait around to see if they have a reaction to them.

What started small pox? To keep a sickness/disease from starting would be better than treating it, would it not?

Such is the case regarding your mentioning of HIV. If morality moved mankind more than the lustful desires of immorality, HIV/AIDS would not be as prevalent today and quite possibly non existent. The stupid thing is having sex out of wedlock, which is what persons such as you suggest and promote by word and/or deed to every generation.

To suggest a flaw in my conscience and morality, yet all the while promoting the very cause and way HIV/AIDS survives reeks of hypocrisy.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
