Rabbi Daniel Asor is imploring his followers not to receive the coronavirus vaccination because, despite science, he believes it might make people gay, Israel Hayom reports.

The Rabbi's beliefs run contrary to those of leading ultra-Orthodox rabbis both in Israel and the rest of the world, who advise taking all appropriate pandemic precautions, including vaccination. As a consequence of not adhering to social distancing, the Haredi community has suffered high death rates.

With thousands of followers on social media, Asor doesn't shy away from controversy. In a recent sermon, he said that "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."

The Rabbi has also espoused conspiracy theories surrounding COVID-19, namely that the virus and its vaccines were concocted by a "global malicious government" comprised of Freemasons, the Illuminati, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and more, all of whom are "trying to establish a new world order." He also believes that the vaccines further the agenda of those who created the virus, which he asserts was developed to "cull global population."

Asor has called the World Health Organization, as well as Pfizer and Moderna — both pharma giants that have released vaccines — "criminal organizations" that have used allegedly false data and information to manipulate ultra-Orthodox leaders into supporting vaccinations.

The Rabbi also asserts that the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency — a Department of Homeland Security that has joined forces with Israel's National Emergency Authority in fighting the pandemic — seeks to further a sinister agenda implemented by a "brutal army" in Israel in collaboration with local law enforcement.

Leading rabbis in both the Sephardi and Ashkenazi communities are imploring followers to receive the COVID-19 vaccines, deeming it a safe and necessary precaution. They are urging their followers to be immunized. Havruta, a pro-LGBTQ organization in Haredi society, responded rather cheekily to the Asor's assertion that the vaccine will turn people gay, saying they are "currently gearing up to welcome our impending new members."
