    Honestly, I would bet most of those pathetically-low numbers are just driven by uneducated people thinking you can get sick from vaccines, or that they have some kind of dangerous chemicals. Hell...

    You seem to have missed the main point. There's nothing wrong with teaching good values to children. But doing so through a lie, and then being subsequently shocked and appalled at anyone who betrays...

    See I'm a little on the fence about the substitute, but a little kid getting in trouble for this is absolutely asinine. Frankly having your kids believe it in the first place is pretty dumb....
