“A measles outbreak in Texas has sickened 15 members of a church led by the daughter of televangelist Kenneth Copeland, who opposes government-required vaccines such as measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine.
“Most of the 24 cases are members of the Eagle Mountain International Church, according to Tarrant County officials. The outbreak was prompted by a church visit by someone who had recently traveled to a country where measles are common. Measles was eradicated in the U.S. by the turn of the century, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but sporadic outbreaks occur resulting from international travel. Fatal in one of 1,000 cases, measles still kills hundreds of thousands around the world every year.
In an exclusive interview with Newslo, Copeland responded by saying that, according to his own personal research, “government vaccines enhance the innate homosexual tendencies in the behavior of newborns” when asked why he felt so strongly against vaccination of babies.
“I have been researching the effects of government vaccination for the last 40 years,” Copeland said, “and the horrors I have discovered are almost too dreadful to pronounce. What they [the government] are doing to us, to our children, is appalling and close to unbelievable.”
When asked to elaborate, the televangelist replied: “These so-called vaccines were first introduced in 1971, as you may or may not know. What first set off my alarm was the fact that that’s the same year when we started noticing a sudden increase in homosexual couples, which got me thinking about whether there was maybe a hidden connection there. As it turns out, I was right.”
Copeland went on to say that “upon realizing that, I immediately changed my position about vaccination, although I wasn’t that much pro-vaccines in the first place. I didn’t allow my kids to be vaccinated and I made sure members of my congregation understood the dangers as well.”
When asked by the Newslo reporter if he perhaps feels guilty that his daughter and several other members of his church got measles, he simply replied, “no,” and added, “Considering the connection between government vaccines and homosexual tendencies they amplify in a person, I would rather my daughter suffer measles and be straight than have her be healthy and lesbian. I would also recommend to Americans to stop vaccinating their children if they hope to allow them the Kingdom of Heaven some day.”
