Time for another smiting!

I hate faith healers.  I really, really hate them.  But you know – when they are faith healing other adults, I figure that well, the adults are adults and sure they should know better but what the hell.

But kids…  oh, when they mess with kids….

I know, I know.  It’s always the same with me, but I have to say it…  what sort of twisted, warped, sick, perverted system of belief could so circumvent, suppress, and subvert an instinct that is so basic that it goes back – way back – to before we were humans, before we were even apes?  Even rats and mice will fight to the death to protect their children.  It seems likely that our ancestors have been doing this since not long after we turned into mammals 220 MILLION YEARS AGO!!!!!!!  How powerful, and how evil, must a belief system be to so twist that basic belief that parents will believe their belief over the blatant evidence of every day life that medicine works better than praying, and is more likely to be beneficial to their children and potentially SAVE THEIR LIVES when they are sick???  And what sort of evil monsters would think that it was a good idea to teach this sort of belief to others?  What sort of power trip does someone have to be on to even WANT to open their mouths and tell parents that they shouldn’t take their children to see doctors?  And what sort of parents can sit in a pew, hear that coming out of the mouth of a leader of their religious institution, and not rise up, fueled by raging hormones and an instinctive reaction to protect their children, and get the hell out of Dodge?

But here’s the kicker for me.  Loony parents, well, they appear from time to time.  People just go batshit crazy sometimes, and sometimes even batshit crazy people are able to put Tab A into Slot B and produce children.  And people make mistakes – sometimes parents are going to make wrong choices for their children, and of those wrong choices a few will be catastrophically wrong.  But the two churches involved here have been responsible for teaching, no, indoctrinating parents with this sort of nonsense since at least 1971, resulting in the death of TWO DOZEN CHILDREN!  That’s not random, that’s not bad luck.

That is institutionalized instruction on child neglect and homicide.

Faith Tabernacle Congregation in North Philadelphia and First Century Gospel Church in Juniata Park, may two She-bears – the protectors of cubs, who will stand their ground and fight to the death to protect their offspring from danger, may two She-bears show up at your worthless, lying institutions, rend to pieces those who teach such falsehoods and stupidity, and teach the survivors about the instinct to protect they young instead of making them pawns in some game of self-aggrandizement and control.

  1. This is too crazy for words.

  2. Good blog and sentiment, I feel the same.
    You might want to check quack faith healer ‘john of god’ and the crazy stuff this guy does.
    Keep posting

  3. An endless supply alright!! Check out Kiran Schmidt, if you have time and inclination. It’s almost funny.(but it’s sad to think they are actually fooling a lot of people)
    I though you might like to check this bit of bizarre info about the Pope and Catholic Church recognizing and honoring quack faith healer ‘john of god’ to Knighthood in the Order of St Gregory. I’m looking to find if this is really true. Any comments or help in my further inquiry would be appreciated.
