We’re going to file this one under: “That’s a new one on me.”
Italian scientist Gian Paolo Vanoli, 70, in a recent interview with Vice Italy claims that vaccines make people gay.
No, really, Vanoli, who has long been a proponent of “alternative medicine,” said that vaccinations cause homosexuality.
Here’s the Huffington Post’s translation of Vanoli’s interview with Vice Italy's Matthew Lenardon:
The vaccine is introduced into the child, the child then grows and tries to find its own personality, and if this is inhibited by mercury or other substances present in the vaccine which enter the brain, the child becomes gay. The problem will especially be present in the next generations, because when gays have children, the children will carry along with them the DNA of their parent’s illness.
Because homosexuality is a disease, even though the WHO has decided that it is not. Who cares! The reality is that it is so. Each vaccination produces homosexuality, because it prevents the formation of one’s personality. It is a microform of autism, if you will. You will see how many gays there will be in the next generation, it will be a disaster.
Vanoli says he doesn’t oppose gay adoption or same-sex marriage. On the contrary, he says he supports both causes and once told GayStarNews that he doesn’t fault gay people for “their illness.”
"But we have to say that it’s an illness, something that does not respect the order of life," he said.
"One of the main causes is represented by vaccines, which go against life, disturbing our mind and our spirit. The proof of that is the big increase in the number of homosexuals. Since mass vaccination began, this is the result."
