About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Autism and the MMR vaccine.

Over the past couple of days I've come across news stories detailing how yet another study conclusively proves a link between autism and aborted fetal cells used in vaccines, specifically the MMR for measles, mumps and rubella.

I WON'T link to those stories nor go into any more detail regarding their source. My gripe here is with the seemingly mindless acceptance by the prolife movement of them. When did independent thinking fall out of fashion?

The basic fact is NOBODY knows with any real certainty what the cause of autism is. There are a few possibilities but nothing definite.

Yet as regards this particular train of thought we're all to believe that some sinister conspiracy exists to cover up an undeniable link. Funny how often these stories come from entities that seem to have their own axe to grind or cause to promote.


The biggest thing to put my panties in a twist though are the all too frequent supporters of this theory that will triumphantly spout off about it. They always seem to stop just short of accusing parents of autistic children of neglecting the will of God and thereby suffering the well deserved consequences. It seems to be implied that "good" Catholics would never deign to stoop so low as to have their kids vaccinated in such a heinous manner. Oh, blow me why dontcha!

As the father of three (yeah, I said THREE) autistic kids it burns my ass when someone relegates my children to the status of mere pawns in some theological payback scheme.

God doesn't work that way, all autistic children deserve better and the smug fools who have never experienced life with autism should just STFU.

Okay, rant over. Thanks for your patience.
