I believe...

Dan Olmsted is the editor of Age of Autism. I'd have thought that to get the title "Editor" of anything, you'd need to have at least a modicum of sense. But when has that ever mattered at Age of Idiocy?

Olmsted writes a piece which he pompously titles "Weekly Wrap", in which he moans about sensible people not agreeing with his loopy ideas, and mentions mercury more often than a hagiographic post on a Queen forum.

This week, he's praising Joan Campbell. You may remember Campbell - she put a website together called "followingvaccinations.com", which is basically a list of unsupported and unverified anecdotes from anti-vaxers making claims that their children are ill because of vaccines.

Olmsted quotes one of these - it starts like this:
I believe my son's issues stem from the two flu vaccines I was strongly advised to take during pregnancy.

"I believe." That's it.

Well, people believe a lot of shit, and, at Age of Autism, belief is the only thing they've got. I'll leave you with this:

Puh-ray-zuh Gawwd!!!
I believe, too!!!
IT's just a Seed of faith
you believe now...
which'll grow-up if you allow
the Holy Spirit to guide you
through prayer, lissening, choirch going and most importantly giving.
Didn't Jesus give His
life just for you
so that you could win
Seventh-Heaven???

If you aint aware of the 2
Commandments we ALL need to
enter the Great Beyond, they are:

1. You gotta love God
with your whole heart AND...
2. Love everyone else in this
Finite existence.
That's it!!
That's all!!
How easy is that???

trustNjesus, dear.
ALWAYS.
God bless your indelible soul.
Yes, maam, Im an NDE.
What's 77ish, short years
compared to eternity, dear???

Cya soon Upstairs.

Sad what most of U.S.
feels now is hate,
stoked by the politicians
who think they're
above the law...
yet, they're only mortal.

Make Your Choice -SAW
