No. It is Darwins theory in practice.

Yes. It is the most cynical type of deception.

So yes it should be legal but if youre not also taking them to the doctor you should be charged with neglect. Dome parents do the praying thing and also the doctor thing. I have a very religious mother that prays for our illnesses and also believes doctors and modern medicine are the answers to those prayers.

I say it should be illegal but eh... Natural selection.

Why not "They pray over him... While he receives medical attention"?

Because that isn't faith healing. Faith healing is strictly praying for someone to get better, not seeking medical attention while simply praying.

I don't think it should be illegal, that gets into people's rights to practice their religion. Although, they should be required to seen medical help.

Triangle, "As long as their children have the legal right to gain real medical help." - The entire point of "faith healing" is that they DO NOT receive actual medical treatment...

I meant it should be legal for adults to faith heal themselves. But children should have the right to real medical help and not faith healing.

I think god is to busy doling out cancer and car accidents to little boys and girls, to heal them.

Biased poll

Explain if you would. Just saying biased poll is lame.

How is this biased? The two top answers are anything but biased.
