What if one of my "believes" is that all gays should be gassed for their moral depravity? Would it be courageous of me to stick with that while under criticism from others?

The content of your "believe" really does matter in assessing whether you can be called courageous for sticking to it.
As long as you physically do not try to harm anyone, you can spread any message you want. Those that want to get vaccinated is welcome to do so and i encourage them to do so. Just leave the rest of us alone and let us live our life the way we wan to. In majority of states mask "mandate" is done and we are doing fine a a country.

Wrong. Not getting vaccinated can harm others. This isn't just a decision you are making for yourself.

We've tried. We sent her research links. She isn't aggressive in arguing it. She just says there is no proof it doesn't cause it, just like in your example. She says they won't know for sure for several years. Which is a total inversion of the burden of proof. I could just as easily say, prove that the vaccine doesn't cause men to grow a second dick. I mean, obviously if that is a long term effect, we won't know for years, technically.
Yes, you are combating the unflappable and irrefutable expertise of Karen on Facebook, who by the way has a BA in woman's studies with a minor in basket weaving. You don't stand a chance against such overwhelming credentials.

I gather by your response to that fucking idiot, that he still subscribes to "I'm a fucking idiot" hourly tweet feed.
Exactly. Put the MFer on ignore.
Quit feeding the troll.

Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit is it? You literally quoted the answer.
Except again, it's a decision i am making regardless that it can harm others. So i ask again, what happened to my body my choice or it's only my body my choice unless as was put "harm others" in which case it's no longer my body my choice?

He's been there for a while. Merely basing my response on woolfe9998's response to the troll.
I understood it. I was posting a general post, via quoting you, to others that still want to waste their time responding to the troll.

So, West Virginia started a lottery for those getting the vaccine in which you can win, among other things, a rifle...


Yet vaccination rates there remain very low.

You'd think that given how useful they consider such things, they would get the vaccine. I mean, after all, they can use it to 1) off themselves, 2) kill their spouse in a fit or rage, 3) get rid of their dimwitted kids who don't know to not play with guns, 4) overthrow the evil socialist government, 5) mow down a bunch of people in a shopping mall.

All that, and they still won't get the vaccine?

Give guns as prizes to people who haven't minded risking the lives of others by not wearing masks or getting vaccines. What could go wrong?

I got mine in March and the only thing I got was the comfort of knowing I wouldn't get seriously ill or die and/or lessen the chance I could harm my friends, family and fellow Americans. The freedom is also pretty nice ;)

I feel more secure in knowing if I ever get lost the government can easily locate me thanks to the tracking chip. :p

I finally got vaxx'ed. Felt a little lousy for a couple days but no biggie.

I've said this before and I'll say it again: anti-vaxxers are like drivers who don't carry auto insurance because everyone else has full coverage. They're relying on you to take on the potential costs of the vaccine while you protect them from the risks of the disease. And all of their ranting conspiracy theories and cries of freedom are just cover-up and distraction for that anti-social behavior.

That is not true, driving is a privilege which comes with rules with one of them being having to have auto insurance. I am not aware of any state/city that mandated anyone get vaccinated. As such it's personal choice that each one of us is able to make. Congratulation on getting vaccinated, i personally have no plans to do that but it do not mean i am against people getting vaccinated that want to.

Congratulations on missing the point. Which was that you're free and (relatively) safe to make that 'personal choice' because more moral people have made the choice to protect you.

I didn't miss the point. I am not asking anyone to protect me. I been living my life normally since March 2020 except for wearing mask inside business that require it such as airport, airplane, store etc.I ignored government mandate to wear it outside.

Still missing the point. If there were no vaccine, or if not enough people got vaccinated, you'd be wearing that mask and facing the risk on contracting COVID, indefinitely The only reason why that won't be happening is because there is a vaccine and good people are getting vaccinated in order to protect you from that fate. And by choosing to not get vaccinated, you are absolutely asking others to protect you.

And if he bothers to respond, he’ll again “miss the point” on purpose. Getting the point would expose him to uncomfortable thinking about how he’s totally self-centered, self-absorbed, and has absolutely no concern for anyone else but himself. A true anti-Christian in every way one defines such a being.

Everything you said is true. I am totally self-centered, self-absorbed and only care about myself. I am not denying that fact. I am also not denying the fact that i apparently had Covid while i was asymptomatic.

Didn't he get covid already?

I would add to your statement that the other pathway to defeating covid is natural immunity though widespread infection... But that's the dumb way to do it that kills a lot of people.
That seems to be his preferred choice, for whatever strange reasoning.
