How...nice. Somebody made a totally invalid incomparison as an excuse to mock several valid arguments, and jeer at people who question and criticize vaccine safety.

I'm strongly reminded of the kind of bullying tactics used by preteen girls.

It's outright offensive. They are a community without a lobby group that is easily used! They won't speak out and that is why they get treated with such disrespect.

 

I wasn't aware they where in Scotland, they are in my state and we view them with the respect they deserve.

That article was an offensive, ridiculous joke, just like the last *member* who brought up orange juice and autism. Notice how they are starting to call for action against non-vaxxers:

Quote:
 If you think my methods are terrible, which they are, apply them to the anti-vax movement. And get angry that these same sloppy reasons are being used

Get angry and do what, exactly? Remember the article where the author instructs his readers to find out who are the non-vaxxers in their group, and then take action?

I see a dangerous trend forming.

Let's recap:

 

The call to action of the non/del/sel group is to protect what they see as their right to make informed decisions and possibly decline a medical procedure outright or on a case by case basis.  

The call to action is really about protecting the right to choose.

 

The call to action of the opposition is to get angry that people make different choices, out their opposers, segregate them and/or take away freedoms? 

 

How are we doing so far?

:yeah

 

and let's remember anytime one groups uses minority group, they really are showing how scared they are 

 

history has shown this time and again

 

just some FYI - the generic term being thrown around by the PRO vaccine side - "Amish" is like lumping all of other religious groups (be it a generic Christian or Judaism, etc)together - that could not be farther from the truth! There are many sects/orders of Amish and they are very independent and have nothing to do with modern medicine and that includes vaccines, yet it server a purpose to confuse people and make board brush stokes to serve a use - propaganda! 

 

so unfortunate

I am closing this thread while I get some feedback of its appropriateness in the forum.
