As you can see they can't prove there is no connection between vaccines and autism so they go for character assasination of those who have experienced it and spoke out. Its been going on for decades.

Whatís more, the justices didnít even decide this case on a constitutional issue Ė the First Amendmentís religious freedom clause, as you might have thought. Rather, the majority opinion rested on statutory law, the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which is aimed at preventing laws that substantially burden a personís free exercise of their religion.

One final thought Ė what does it say about the state of our republic when we must wait, breathlessly, for nine unelected, lifetime appointed men and women to decide issues of liberty, individualism and freedom?

As we like to point out here, this is not the way it was supposed to be.

Liberals love to tout themselves as the final arbiters of liberty, but in reality their modus operandi is to use the power of government and the centralized State to impose their will. Theyíre not interested in debate or the fair exchange of ideas; if Congress canít pass a law, they go to the courts; if the courts donít rule in their favor, they appeal to the Executive Branch, and so on.

The Hobby Lobby case is but one of many examples. The Leftís argument is simply this: we should all be forced to pay for a womanís abortion even if we vehemently disagree with the procedure on moral and ethical grounds. Want to opt out of this coverage? Too bad; pay up and shut up.

Thatís not liberty, thatís tyranny.

Actually myself and others at CDC covered up evidence that MMR caused autism. So the anti's and Wakefield are right.
