Methodists back vaccine quackery

Why is the United Methodist Church lending its prestige and influence to the widely discredited vaccines-cause-autism theory, in league with a coalition of personal injury lawyers, misguided families, and grossly irresponsible public figures? Kathleen Seidel raises some pointed questions as well as calling to our attention a few recent developments in the medical journals. And Beck and Hermann dissect the recent Eastern District of Pennsylvania case of Sykes v. Glaxo-SmithKline, et al., a major win for vaccine defendants, in which the plaintiffs were the same Sykes family that has been instrumental in drawing the Methodist church into its ill-considered involvement with the issue.
