This is hilarious, and also so very sad…

If you are a fan of WhyWontGodHealAmputees.com, this is painful to read:

Stand Up And Be Healed

This poor guy is in a wheelchair with severe muscular dystrophy. MD is a genetic disease, meaning that it is hard-wired into your DNA. According to Wikipedia, “Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue.” It is not a pleasant disease.

But this poor guy is writing about delusional Christians who walk up to him, touch him and expect their imaginary “god” to heal him on the spot:

On another occasion I was visiting a well known evangelical church in London called Kensington Temple. Just before the service began a group of people approached me and before I knew it had encircled me and were ‘laying hands’ on me. Several of them started to pray in tongues and became increasingly ecstatic. One of the group placed his hand on my head and exhorted me to “Stand up in the name of Jesus.” When I failed to do so he became quite agitated. “Rise up in the name of Jee-sus!” he demanded. I shrugged apologetically, sorry to disappoint him. Suddenly the atmosphere changed. “If you truly believe you will be healed.” Nothing happened. The group backed away from me. Someone looked at me disapprovingly and said, “you have to want to be healed.” The group wandered away from me muttering sadly at my lack of faith. Suffice to say I didn’t much enjoy the sermon that followed on the theme of miracles.

It is hilarious that these Christians can be so delusional and so stupid in their beliefs. But their ignorance and delusion, and their utterly inconsiderate behavior, is also so very sad. How can people consciously allow themselves to become so detached from reality like this, and then impose their stupidity on others in public?

    On a positive note, stem cell injections have given an 8 year old blind girl sight;

    No gods were in residence, but there were doctors.

    Note where this happened; China.

    Note also that if this girl, who came from the USA, lived in a country that actually supported stem cell research as opposed to putting up immoral roadblocks, she would likely have had a better chance at gaining the full use of her eyes. As it is now, since her treatment was likely delayed a few years, she may never be able to have normal eye sight.

    Yet, where gods are absent, humans have once again succeeded.

    Where dogma rules, the immorality of putting a clump of 100 undifferentiated cells above the lives of breathing humans thrives. The Greeks could write no tragedy that matches this reality.

    This book really blessed me, I’d like to pass it on to the person who wants it… I’ll pay the postage to send it to you!
    “Speaking in Tongues at Spirit Baptism” explains why speaking in tongues is essential and is the initial sign of the New Birth experience. Many scriptural passages in the book will really help you understand the truth about this subject.

    Email me your name and address and I’ll mail you the book for free, and pass on the blessing.
