Health Risk Déjà Vu, Part 2:The Big Stink About Toxic Scents
A Message To Cosmo's Jinny Suh Who Shames Parents of Vaccine Injured Children

Paul Offit: Proselytizes as Pope of the Church of Immaculate Vaccination

Pieta
Note: Many years ago, we ran a photo that has zero religious intent and featured many in the pro-vaccine injury community. We were instantly branded Anti-Semitic. Here, Paul Offit, himself Jewish, purports to tell those of us who are Christian what Jesus wants us to do.  Tell the Pope to look out, Offit may be after his job.  Holy Moses.... And thank you, Anne for this post.

What Would Jesus Do?  He’d vaccinate every child, according to Paul Offit

Recently Paul Offit was on the attack against Vice President Mike Pence over his actions on the HPV vaccine back when he was governor of Indiana. Every teenager in Indiana was expected to get the vaccine, according to Offit.  “…the HPV vaccine… was recommended for all adolescents.”

(Seriously, how can someone tell EVERY adolescent to get a pharmaceutical product, without any consideration of risk factors?)

April 15, 2017, The Daily Beast: Why Didn't Pence Do the Christian Thing?

By Dr. Paul Offit.

The VP’s extreme-conservative policies on the HPV vaccine needlessly risked Indiana children’s lives. What he did unto them—among others—is something Christ himself rejected above all.

In July 2016, Mike Pence rallied cheering crowds at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland declaring, “I am a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican—in that order.” One year earlier, however, as governor of Indiana, Pence’s radical conservative values trumped his Christian values.

During the week of Sept. 21, 2015, the Indiana State Department of Health sent a letter to the parents of 305,000 children. The letter reminded parents that their children had yet to receive the HPV vaccine that was recommended for all adolescents.

Offit went on to cite one father who objected to the letter about giving the HPV vaccine to his daughter, claiming, The letter was intrusive. He asked Gov. Pence to look into it. Pence agreed, later asking Indiana public-health officials to make it clear that the HPV vaccine was ‘optional’ and that parents could remove their names from the state registry that had identified their children as lagging behind on their immunizations.”…

Pence didn’t stop at gutting his state health department’s letter. He also reprimanded the state health commissioner for speaking about the HPV vaccine at Indiana’s National Coalition Conference, later requiring all public-health employees to submit their presentations about vaccines to his office for approval prior to any speaking engagement. Then he prohibited the release of a document by the Indiana Cancer Consortium that included information on cervical cancer, the only known cause of which is HPV. Mike Pence did everything that he could to make sure that Indiana’s parents and schoolchildren knew as little as possible about the consequences of HPV infection and the availability of a vaccine to prevent it.

Offit went on to warn about Pence’s position on Planned Parenthood, abortion bills, and the LGBT community.

Next Offit pontificated at length on Pence’s claim that he is an evangelical Christian.  Offit declared that Pence has “rejected his Christian values” by not promoting the HPV vaccine for every teen in Indiana.

Mike Pence is an evangelical Christian. He believes in the teachings of Jesus Christ as reflected in the four gospels—which make his actions regarding the HPV vaccine all the more surprising. By making it virtually impossible for Indiana’s public-health workers to talk about HPV or encourage the use of the HPV vaccine, Pence had rejected his Christian values. …

Jesus, on the other hand, rejected the ethos of his time. His love of children is evident throughout the New Testament. Jesus believed that anyone who put children in harm’s way should be punished: “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matthew 18:4-6). Jesus’ followers embraced his message of love for children. Indeed, Jesus’ teachings served as the basis for Christian protective services and Christian relief societies for the next 1,800 years.

Offit chastised Pence saying that if he’d “chosen Jesus’ message of love over his extreme conservative ideology—as he had promised during the Republican National Convention—he would have done everything that he could have to protect the children in his state. Allowing children to die from a vaccine-preventable disease can never be cloaked in the guise of love.”

I was nearly speechless at this. Does the hubris of this man extend even to using religion to sell  vaccines?

Where does Offit come off telling anyone what their religious obligations are?

As a Catholic Christian, I would never presume to tell anyone—Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, Jewish, Muslim—what religious duty they have in any regard.  

This is cheap rhetoric. Resorting to using someone’s faith against them in order to promote the sale of vaccines is contemptible.

What does Paul Offit know about Mike Pence’s religious outlook? Why does Offit presume to tell him what Jesus Christ would obligate anyone to do?

And as far as the quotations from Matthew Offit used:

Whoever welcomes a little child like this in My name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea” (Matthew 18:4-6).

And…

Verily, I say unto you, Inasmuch as you have done it unto one of the least of my brethren you have done it unto me”—a message that could be carved into the entranceways of every children’s clinic and pediatric hospital in Indiana. If Mike Pence had chosen Jesus’ message of love over his extreme conservative ideology—as he had promised during the Republican National Convention—he would have done everything that he could have to protect the children in his state. Allowing children to die from a vaccine-preventable disease can never be cloaked in the guise of love (Matthew 25:40).

Offit has it all wrong.

The people who come to mind are the pharma reps and health officials who gathered at Simpsonwood in Norcross, Georgia in 2000 and spent two days figuring out how to cover up the link between vaccines and autism.

The people who also come to mind are the higher ups at the CDC who ordered Dr. William Thompson to put his damning study results on the MMR vaccine and autism into the garbage can and who ordered him to lie to the IOM.

Message to Dr. Offit: Don’t presume to tell any Christian what God wants them to do.

You guys all make good points. But surely the most obvious one is this:

Jesus was never vaccinated. So if you reject unvaccinated children (eg in schools, daycares etc) you are rejecting Christ himself.

VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually be serious about giving a child a trivalent vaccine, that only last for 4 years and that only protects against 4 strains of HPV, which does not cause cervical cancer unless by the way unless there is a chronic infection for at least 2 years and that will not present itself until the 4th decade of life, and occurs in less than .001 per cent of the population of women and has a 90 per cent survival rate.

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually try to compel the public to employ this vaccine in children, given that it has never been tested or cleared for use in children by the inventor of the actual vaccine, to use the vaccine.

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually then hide the fact that the populations of females that actually get cervical cancer have a high number of sexual partners who do not use condoms and as a result have early changes in pap smears indicating cervical dysplasia of cell types and precancerous changes.

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually support an agenda that does not help young women understand that behavior modification does not come in the false promise of a fake vaccine that will allow you to abuse yourself with freedoms that please you now but enslave you later, but a real relationship with your heavenly father.

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually try and use guilt to shame parents into using this worthless drug, with all types of risk and no reward on any scale, scientific or moral or biblical and put the moniker of "science" on it and then try to use the bible of all things to encourage the use of this drug which gives young people, already with bad judgment, a false sense of security to engage in reckless behavior, that the bible expressly prohibits for a whole host of reason not the least of which is that fornication, which many of us also engaged in, is a sin that could keep you from inheriting the kingdom of God.

Only a true drug dealer like Offit could actually be delusional enough, arrogant enough, evil enough, and prideful enough to invoke Jesus Christ to try to bully people into putting this poison into our bodies and our children’s bodies for his own personal gain.

As a true drug dealer Offit you must know that your time is coming bro and I really do believe that there will be a special place in hell for people like you, and other “true drug dealers”

Can I get an Amen?

"Operation Snowball"- When I am called to duty ,God wherever flames may rage, give me strength to save a life whatever be it's age, help me embrace a little child before it is too late, or save an older person from the horror of that fate , enable me to be alert to hear the weakest shout, and quickly and efficiently, to put the fire out ,I want to fill my calling and to give the best in me. to guard my neighbor and protect their liberty, and if according to your will, I have to lose my life, bless with your protecting hand my children and my wife .
Make sure they get the message loud and clear their Vacca-A -Nation health and safety risk assessment studies are "Away tae Hell in a handbasket!"

Read the testimony of the FDA appointee. And weep. A pharma insider. We've been swindled by our new President, who, rather than draining the swamp, is deepening it.

go Trump

Seems a few years back I saw a story about a doctor who created a scarlet fever vaccine 90 years ago, gave it to his entire class of nursing students and killed them all ... cannot seem to locate it now. Like many, I am sure he was looking to make a pr offit

Scarlet fever seemed to go away with modern plumbing.

Not sure what the plans are for the CDC director, lets hope we try some peace for a few years.

The BIG problem is not North Korea, the Russians or Syria... it is the damn US of A vaccine schedule... A D-Day invasion of the CDC would be nice.

George stevens

Any word on trumps cdc pick? Been awful quiet on that front.

Well done Pence Trump just needs to get his chess men positioned for the Pharma strike- I dont think Trump is going to give them a warning, hey guys I am just about to arrest yooou okkkay!!

MMR RIP

God created man--and his immune system. Personally I think vaccines are man's attempt at "improving" on what God created.

The Bible also talks about your body being a temple. We need to take care of our bodies same as we take care of buildings, and vaccines are damaging.

Catholic autism mom

Jesus delivered health care for free. And only if the recipient asked for it. He never mandated or forced his cures or care on anyone. They had to believe to ask. Thus forcing vaccines on those who do not have faith they will help their child is the opposite of what Jesus would do, based on my reading of the scriptures.

Kathryn B

Jesus threw the money changers out of the temple. He would have thrown out Paul Offit as well.

Offit is so disingenuous, I can see right through him.

nhokkanen

Imagine the back-and-forth emails and Google Docs-style co-editing between Offit and the unsigned, unseen contributors to this socially offensive marketing push. This ham-fisted attempt at psychological manipulation via religion would be laughable if not for the people who have died due to the perpetuation by denial of vaccine injuries.

As an industry PR front man, Offit's advertising messaging surely is vetted by a writing team (because when he goes off script, he can't control his expletives). And those shared files are probably somewhere on the Cloud.

I wonder whether any NSA staff are monitoring his threads, and whether they too roll their eyes at his outrageous blather. Before he used tiny children as human shields; now he clothes himself in the robes of Christ. He's running out of fresh cover.

"Ye shall know them by their fruits..."

Probably more fruits stemming from Offit's devoted efforts...

I believe there are a lot of girls who have been seriously damaged by Gardasil that could counter PrOffit's dictate. Jesus would not want profiteering over health. Pretty sure about that. #offitisntjesus #denmarkdocumentary #gardasilgirls #collectiveevolution

Jeannette Bishop

Watching the current The Truth About Vaccines episode, it seems in summary that violations of tenets of just about all religions are numerously employed in the promotion and protection of this dangerous vaccine.

Making resistance to HPV vaccine about religion, "religious extremists," has been a main tactic even before the vaccine was really available. I think this pitch mostly sells (I hope it mostly flops) to people who find the terms Christian, conservative, and Republican dubious and want to see hypocrisy in the actions of someone "not on their team" and get them all riled up to throw away their own access to vaccine exemptions, particularly "religious" ones, but it still might weigh in with someone who wants to walk the middle and not be "an extremist" who is not educated about how much harm this vaccine is doing and how little real benefit promoters can truly demonstrate it promises.

annie

Robert Kennedy Jr invoked the same "suffer the little children unto me" parable two weeks earlier in March 31st at the Truth and Transparency Rally. Funny that! As the Vaxxed bus gets ready to tour Ireland with all of their recorded Gardasil injury stories Paulie Poo was at it again giving a radio interview there espousing the wonders of this deadly vaccine.

He is definitely the dog chasing the car and damn I hope he catches it!

Sun~Rose

What makes You think he's Jewish. I just something where he was criticizing orthodox Jews

kws

I knew there were evil men in this world, however Paul Offit sets a new low as the primary spokesperson for Merck and their dangerous vaccines.

Thank you Vice President Pence for supporting real Christian values !

Louise Stanley

Amazing the use of religion! He knows perfectly well that fear and guilt are stong motivators.

Offit is drowning by the weight of the millstone he has placed around his own neck. He is grasping at anything that might keep him afloat for just a while longer...

Matthew Plache, Wolfeboro, NH

Offit’s attack on Vice President Pence is intended to promote a more insidious goal -- revoking all religious exemptions from mandatory vaccination requirements. Offit has argued in the past that religious exemptions are bogus. By re-interpreting Jesus’ preachings as being supportive of mandatory vaccinations, Offit is working to build a foundation for justifying eliminating religious exemptions.

Someone

Why doesn't Offit do "the Christian thing?" While Jesus was a Jewish rabbi, Offit has no business (although it certainly is "business" to him) telling others how to practice their religion. Offit is a millionaire vaccine industrialist who worships the false idols known as vaccines, like other false prophets (who we are warned about in The Holy Bible) who profit from the vaccine industry, and this idol worship is an affront, and a threat, to Christianity. Offit has no morals whatsoever, because if he did, he would pull his rotavirus vaccine off the market, himself, as it has killed babies via iatrogenically induced intussusception. He will certainly be judged harshly one day, because he is so vain and so callous he will not likely repent.

Grace Green

I am sickened by Offit's "interpretation" of Jesus' teaching. But the premise of his argument is also wrong. Children never have and never will die of HPV, or cervical cancer. It only affects women much later in life. He is dishonest about medical facts as well as being arrogant about ethics.

Benjamin

Why does Offit presume to tell him what Jesus Christ would obligate anyone to do?

Simple - because Offit believes himself to be the messiah.

stfuPaul

Paul Offit should inject himself with the full vaccine schedule including HPV and flu shots in full public view or he should stfu.
