TV evangelist Darlene Bishop (Monroe, Ohio) had a wrongful-death lawsuit filed against her in late 2006 by the family of her brother, who died after a battle with throat cancer, which the family says Bishop convinced him (on his deathbed) that he had defeated through her ministry of prayer. Before her brother was stricken, Bishop's main healing example was herself, in that she touted prayer as having enabled her to beat her own breast cancer, but she later conceded that she merely believed herself stricken and that no formal diagnosis had been made. (Bishop's brother was a prominent country and western songwriter, and the family members are contesting his considerable estate.) [New York Times, 1-1-07]

I had terminal brain spasms brought on by reading this kind of horseshit but through the power of prayer I now have terminal brain spasms brought on by this horseshit! HOLLYMINTJULEP!

Wow, the family of her brother sued her.  My lovely husband likes to say "Nothing fails like prayer."

Except perhaps Bush's foreign and domestic policies.

Do you mean that you're losing faith in faith-based initiatives?

If you would have just had enough faith that the WMD were there, then I'm sure we would have found them by now.  It's sort of like Tinkerbell, ya know?

I believe in you, WMD's!  *fairy dust sprinkles all around*

Oh well, at least there are still psychic healers, or "The Secret", if you're looking to cure cancer.  Thank God some things in this world are REAL, right? :roll:

What an idiot that lead character was though. I'd ask the Blue Fairy to make me at least a half dozen boys!
