News flash: snake oil doesn’t prevent measles.
A measles outbreak in Texas traces to a congregation of a megachurch whose leader, Kenneth Copeland, reportedly has warned followers away from vaccines, advocating for faith healing and pushing the debunked notion that vaccines cause autism. One of Copeland’s churches, Eagle Mountain International Church in North Texas, is the epicenter of the outbreak, which now has hit at least 20 people.
The place ought to be shut down as a public health hazard and the preachers should be arrested for public endangerment.
Of course, that pretty much describes most megachurches.
