The parents of a 14 year old in New York have sued a Catholic school after the Diocese refused their child admission because he had not been immunized. Never mind that that his lack of immunization poses a danger to himself and to other children. It apparently is a matter of spoliation and “violation of God’s supreme authority.” As Joshua Rhett Miller reports:
Andrea and Paul Polydor, of Garden City, believe human bodies “should not be defiled by vaccines,” according to a complaint filed in Nassau County Court against Kellenberg Memorial High School in Uniondale.
“[W]e are all created in God’s image,” reads a letter the Polydors sent to the school on Feb. 13, according to the lawsuit. “Therefore, we must not defile our blood and our bodies with diseases and other impure substances. As the divine Architect, God designed our bodies to have immune systems that must not be defiled by vaccines. Immunizations are a violation of God’s supreme authority, and therefore, unholy. Since immunizations are unholy they violate my religious beliefs.”
Under the relevant law, their argument is a sure fire loser. Under the relevant biology, they are wrong about nearly everything.
