Pat Robertson: Vaccines and fluoride work exactly as intended, but should we use them?

Published

Televangelist Pat Robertson suggested parents ought to let nature take its course when it comes to potentially fatal childhood illness such as measles, mumps, and polio.

“I’m sure that there’s some serious consequences to measles and perhaps vaccinations is the answer, but I don’t think any parent should be forced by the government to vaccinate,” he said.

He claimed during the “700 Club” on Tuesday that a friend’s mother contracted polio from the vaccine, which he said suggested some immunizations were “not benign,” reported Right Wing Watch.

“So far this one about whooping cough and diphtheria and measles has been very effective, and I think it was a good thing to do,” Robertson said. “But the problem is, natural immunity is a pretty good thing, and if you have some of these diseases when you’re a kid you have immunity the rest of your life.”

He also warned against fluoride, another government-mandated health policy that arouses suspicions in some.

“I just think that we’ve got to be careful that we fall for these nostrums, you know, you have to put fluoride in all of the water because it will cut down on cavities,” Robertson said. “But what does fluoride do to people? We don’t know some of the consequences, we don’t have all of the knowledge we need and we should be very careful not to force people to do stuff that they earnestly feel they shouldn’t do.”

CNN anchor Don Lemon slammed U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald for invoking President Donald Trump on Thursday.

“I know she has a tough job, but guess what, as long as we are being honest right now, nobody wants to hear from the White House or the attorney general right now,” Lemon said. “No one wants to hear from the man who wanted the death penalty to come back for the Central Park Five.”

“No one wants to hear from the man who says that the former president was not born in this country. No one wants to hear from the man who said there are ‘very fine people on both sides.’ Do you understand what I am saying?” he asked.
