My parents are refusing to get vaccinated for all the usual misinformed reasons. We don't know what's in it (despite that information being freely available.) We don't know if it's safe (despite the multiple trials and low rates of serious side effects.) We're low risk, so we should be safe (despite that low risk is still a risk and you can potentially become a vector for further spread and mutation). I'm sorry that you feel so strongly about this that you won't come visit your family (despite that it's their fucking decision to put politics over family).

Fuck Fox News. Fuck the church. Fuck the Republican Party. You've damaged my family, you've damaged society, and you've wasted over a year of all of our lives on covid alone. You are filth.

The Church? What church is that?

Good for those churches. There are plenty others that are still feeding misinformation to their congregations. Fuck the church.

Good for the good stuff. There's plenty of bad stuff. Fuck the stuff.
