Another case (happened last year) of "faith healing" (criminal negligence imo) costing a child his life, after an Oregon teen suffered a burst appendix and died. Who else agrees this practice should not be protected? By not protected, I mean parents should have to provide children with their required medical care, or face charges. If they want to pray, let them pray, but do it in the hospital, not at home with your child laying there dying. These parents should be facing criminal manslaughter and child neglect charges, but instead are getting off scot free. I respect peoples' rights to pray, but the right to life of their child by far trumps their right to pray over his/her dying body while denying medical care...thoughts?

I know, but I don't believe it should be legally protected.

Agree.

I mean, if your faith is strong enough and real enough that you can regrow a lost limb in a matter of seconds, go ahead. If not, use medicine.

InsertNameHere Good to meet you..

InsertNameHere You said.. they could always go become amish

I reply of COURSE!!

Amish HELP each other!!!

They "LOVE" as Jesus commanded!

Scriptures say... LOVE your neighbor!
Mark 12:31
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

InsertNameHere Do you see it?? The greatest commandment is LOVE!!!

The Amishman has LOVE!! He will inherit eternal life!!
