Charlatans

CNN has a story on a "religious healing" gone terribly wrong.

A pastor said Saturday that church leaders were trying to heal an autistic 8-year-old boy when he inexplicably stopped breathing and died during a prayer service Friday night.

During the hourlong session, the boy's feet and hands were restrained by his mother and other church members who prayed intensely for his violent tendencies to cease, the pastor's wife said.

Reading the full article leaves you bewildered and filled with rage. This is 2003, correct? It sounds suspiciously like 1603 at that "church".

That is sick and twisted! And quite obviously a "cult" and not truly a church.
