Measles outbreak at mega-church
TEXAS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A church at the center of a measles outbreak in Texas was shut down overnight for a good long cleaning.
Health officials say at least 21 cases have been confirmed.
Patient zero was a traveler from overseas who hugged parishioners and handled babies in the church daycare.
The current pastor there and her father have long preached against vaccinations, opting for faith healing.
Now they're telling parishioners to first seek the wisdom of god, then appropriate medical attention.
Go in faith, don't do anything you don't do in faith. Do it in faith. Do it in faith. Do it in faith. If you're somebody and you know that you know that you know that you got this covered in your household by faith and it crosses your heart of faith, then don't go do it, said Pastor Terri Pearsons.
Officials say most, of those infected were not vaccinated.
