No, I do not believe one causes the other, but the two subjects seem to be capturing most of the headlines. It's beginning to feel like those of us who believe Scripture is clear regarding the topics of sexuality and health, could quickly become the "social nemeses" of our day. The Revelation seems to lump illicit sexuality and pharmaceuticals in the same group. Some will say, since the government has now ruled that homosexual marriage is Constitutional, it is no longer illicit. Constitutional or not, that doesn't make it Biblical! As for pharmaceuticals, that frontline battle has been a lonely one for those of us who believe it violates our faith. So, let's chat about this, shall we?
How did humanity exist for thousands of years before vaccinations and prior to gender labels moving beyond the binary system? To avoid confusion, I'll address the gender issues first, then move on to vaccinations. I'm mathematical, and for the most part gender determination has been a binary recognition at birth, not "assigned." Since the dawn of creation, there have been two genders, male and female. Gender or sex was not assigned at birth, and certainly not for later reassignment! Gender or sex was recognized, identified, and proclaimed at birth, as in "it's a boy" or "it's a girl." With that proclamation, came blue or pink booties and life moved on from there!
Obviously there has been temptation in regard to same sex relations since before Torah was given at Sinai. The account of Lot indicates homosexuality was a factor in the night of the heavenly visitors. I'm not saying that was the only factor in the fire and brimstone falling, but Lot had two sons in law while the daughters were specifically stated to be virgins. There'd have been no reason to give the commandment, if there were no issue of temptation in that area. Actually, there are a number of commandments regarding our sexuality, so we humans do appear to have a tendency to want to engage in, and excuse a great deal! Not only do we humans have an appetite for forbidden fruit, most seem to be be drawn to varying disregard of the Instructions when it comes to sexuality, as well.
When it comes to the rising numbers in the LGBT agenda . . . Is it the programming? Is it the growth hormones in the meat? Is it GMO or all the soy in the diet? Now, it seems in order to understand sexuality in our society, a syllabus and glossary are required. The only folks who seem to be able to openly refer to just two sexes or genders are the bisexuals! When heterosexuals refer to just male and female without the ever growing compendium of labels, it's termed hate speech or homophobic. Now, as for vaccinations . . .
If all these diseases were truly eradicated in this country by the end of last century, the low percentage of non-vaccinating American parents are probably not the problem. Perhaps we should take a closer look at the health of illegal immigrants and our refugee policies. As for illegal immigrants, I'm sure many of them can be found in local ERs and county assistance offices. When we consider that this outbreak of measles seems to have originated in California, it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibilities that lax border policies could be a contributing factor. We'd not have to worry about refugee policies if we'd quit starting wars.
Statistics indicate most of these diseases were already on the decline before the vaccinations were introduced. The timing of the vaccination outrage raises a red flag for me, in that mandatory health insurance is now officially in place and the IRS is in charge of the data. Calling 114 cases of measles an epidemic seems a bit over the top when our society has so many other ills numbering into the thousands and upwards. It doesn't take much ink to connect the dots between mandated health insurance, the hot button campaign issue of vaccinations, and further invasion into the private home and family.
I don't mean to sound insensitive, but the two issues of anti-vaccination and LGBT, reportedly affect a very small percentage of our population. There is only one state that reports more than 6% of children are unvaccinated for nonmedical reasons. Most states report fewer than 3% of the children are unvaccinated. By that same token regarding the LGBT community, according to NHIS, 96.6% of Americans identify as straight. Why are so many headlines devoted to issues of such a small percentage of our population? Brian Williams strange version of fabricated journalism has taken third place in headlines, which again raises that old question in my mind. While the entire nation is cussing and discussing these issues, what's really going on? It would appear we are open to everything except the Truth of our Creator.
Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of YHWH your G-d, which I command
you this day: And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of YHWH your G-d, but turn
aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which
ye have not known. Torah of Holy Scripture
