‘Covid-19 vaccine will turn people homosexual,’ Jewish leader makes bizarre statements

A Jewish leader from Israel’s ultra-orthodox sect has warned against taking the Covid-19 vaccine saying ‘it might turn people gay’.

Rabbi Daniel Asor, asserted that the entire vaccination drive is the work of a “global malicious government,” which is “trying to establish a new world order.”

The leader in an online sermon said “Any vaccine made using an embryonic substrate, and we have evidence of this, causes opposite tendencies. Vaccines are taken from an embryonic substrate, and they did that here, too, so … it can cause opposite tendencies,” hinting at homosexuality.

After establishing a false link between vaccine and homosexuality, Asor went onto assert multiple ‘conspiracy theories’ surrounding the entire coronavirus pandemic.

He termed the World Health Organisation (WHO) and vaccine-developing giants Pfizer and BioNTech “criminal organisations”, who have presented false data about the vaccine’s efficacy to the ultra-Orthodox leaders in an attempt to have them on the same page.

According to Isral Hayom, Asor has argued that the virus was released to “cull global population” and the vaccines are just a way to “further this agenda”.

Asor’s understanding of such baseless theories has gone a notch higher, as he claimed that the entire vaccination business is nothing but a “secret and brutal Army” maintained between the US and Israel, that will eventually interfere with the local law enforcement to further the global government’s sinful agenda.

However, Asor’s statement goes completely against the instructions given by senior rabbis of the sect including Chaim Kanievsky, Gershon Edelstein and Shalom Cohen, who have urged people to take the maximum protection against the global pandemic and that must include taking the vaccine.

This isn’t the first time when such a bizarre claim about the vaccine has been made by a global leader.

Earlier, in December, Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro warned Brazilians that if they take the vaccine, they will grow beards or turn into alligators.
