Actions Have Consequences, Part XXVIII

Q.  The senior pastor at a Texas megachurch often speaks from the pulpit against vaccines.  The church's position is that one should seek guidence from God, the Word.   What is the result?

(a)  God, the Word, takes care of everybody.
(b)  The senior pastor gets a Ph.D. in medicine
(c)  There is an outbreak of measles which not only affects members of the church, but the entire community.

The answer, of course, is C. 

And this happens quite often — more than you may think.

Quote of the day goes to William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert and professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, who says:  "This is a sadly misinformed religious leader."

And the church?  Looks like they know they stepped in it.
