A measles outbreak is so rarely heard of, some may even believe the disease to be eradicated, like scurvy. But it's still very much out there, and highly contagious - especially to those who have not received vaccinations for it.
At least 16 people linked to a megachurch northwest of Dallas have contracted measles. Health officials say it began when a visitor brought the virus back from overseas. The ministry for the Eagle Mountain International Church is led by televangelist Kenneth Copeland, whose sermons have carried anti-vaccine messages in the past.
"Immunity. Vaccination. Spiritual-induced immunity from sickness and disease," Copeland preached in June.
