Damn , you beat me to the punch , just saw clips from this show today.
Great stuff.
It's sad how the corrupt and greedy exploit the weak and desperate.
If I ever run into one of those charlatans , I'll be in prison for aggravated assault by evening.

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Managed to get it on 4od (not damning channel 4 anymore lol). That story about the girl with multiple sclerosis made me sick. Preachers who do that should be injected with aggressive forms of cancer, denied any proper medical treatment and left to heal themselves. Would be funny to see how many of them still stuck with their ridiculous claims after that.

Very interesting documentary. I knew about the whole faith healing thing, but I didn't know that people through away medicines and denied medical care after it. I'm not sure how much of a hit they actually did on faith healing, but it's something that should be stopped.

I'd imagine that there is no greater hell on earth than being a loving parent, who in a confused haze of faith and lies, ended up directly responsible for the death of their child.

I don't believe Jesus is the son of God until I see the long form birth certificate!

Did someone say snake oil?

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

Reminiscent of the movie "Marjoe."

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?
