Jenny McCarthy’s Celebrity Ignorance Strikes Again…

And to think, she’s now on “The View.”

A Texas megachurch has shifted its stance on immunization, following a measles outbreak among its faithful.

At least 20 members of the Eagle Mountain International Church in North Texas have been diagnosed with measles after a few members of the congregation traveled abroad on a mission trip and contracted the disease. The church is part of Kenneth Copeland Ministries, which has advocated abstaining from vaccinations and immunizations for fear they cause autism.

Pastor Terri Copeland Pearsons, daughter of Kenneth Copeland, announced in a sermon last week that the church will be hosting vaccination clinics and urged her congregation to attend.

Health officials report that exposure to the virus in foreign countries by unvaccinated people is one of the most common ways for outbreaks to occur in the U.S., but that the virus is otherwise largely avoidable due to regular vaccination schedules for children.

In response to the Copeland Ministries outbreak, the state of Texas health officials are now in a state of “Alert,” and the Center for Disease Control is said to be monitoring the situation.

It is unlikely that anyone on “The View” will ask McCarthy about this, or whether the topic will even be brought up.
