That just goes to show how things get so crazy. One day, some NY *official* in power decided that since NY is such a crowded city, they should make darn sure that nobody goes un-vaccinated and that way, they would live happily ever after, never worrying about catching any disease for the rest of their merry lives...

How did we get this brainwashed as a society?

West Virginia and Mississippi have medical exemptions only, and the state can over rule the doctor if they disagree.

All other states have religious and medical and about 18 or 19 have a philosophical/conscience exemption. Some states have a very relaxed religious exemption, NY has the pickiest.

I think three states have limited exemption.

"b) He also presumes all vaccines work (I guess because he believes they came from God."

LMAO

Hmmm, so why not just file for exemption for reasons of conscience? Is that not available in all states? I don't know how they could argue that one.

I only saw part 1 so far (are other parts there?). What a joke! First of all, this guy is basically trying to intimidate these poor people. Second of all, much of the line of questioning revolves around the fact that he seems to think all vaccines came from God himself. I'd say a)I don't believe all vaccines came from God himself. Just because man can think something up, doesn't mean it's good or came from God. b) He also presumes all vaccines work (I guess because he believes they came from God. Again - I don't believe that. and c) He must also believe that the benefits outweigh the risks for all vaccines. Again - I disagree. So, what's the point of his interview? He seems to think he's God's right hand man - God gave us all these vaccines so who are you (that is, these poor people) to question them? Palease!! And as far as what the Catholic church has to say about them - When the pope comes out and invokes infallibility and says all vaccines are good and you must get all vaccines without fail - that's one thing. That hasn't happened (nor will it) so again I say - next question!

Good grief. I always thought these type of interviews would get into some sort of theological discussion. This was just ridiculous. IMO and from what I saw of it.

I would like to know what happened to this jerkoff.

Do these people not understand the rights they are violating by trying to force vaccinations? I am in shock by this guy's gall and my vaccine beliefs aren't even religious.

Did I see that right? I only saw 3 parts; I'm taking it to assume the other 2 need to be uploaded.
