I’ve also revamped the website to include both books and have shortened my annoyingly long Bio and tweaked the summary of Freedom as well. I’ve also been very neglectful as far as posting any blogs as I was so busy with finally getting the novel out there that I just didn’t make the time. For that I apologize as well.
So, let’s change that….. Today’s blog “Faith Healing” and why it’s dangerous along with a parting humorous shot at why the AA sheeple are really describing themselves when they mention “dry drunks”.
I quoted from this book a little over a week ago and I just love this guy. He’s spot on and has a sarcastic wit that reminds me a tad of Nelson DeMille who is my favorite novelist in the Universe. His John Corey character is PRICELESS. Anyway, the book is titles, 50 popular beliefs that people think are true, by Guy Harrison.
In regards to faith healing on page 225 he says,
“Sure, it may offer comfort, maybe even a temporary relief, to some who believe in it. But is it worth the risk? Terence Hines, a professor of neuroscience, offers a stern wakeup call for anyone who may think faith healing is harmless:
“’One point about faith healers cannot be overemphasized: They kill people. Convinced that they are cured when they are not, they may be dissuaded from seeking legitimate medical help that could save their lives. For example, many kinds of cancer are now treatable, if treatment begins early enough….How many of the largely elderly and poor members of (a typical faith healer’s) audience go home to great pain and even die because they have thrown away the medicine that was really treating their health problems?... In many states, laws covering child abuse and neglect contain specific religious exemptions. These permit a parent to withhold medical treatment from a child if the parent is a member of a religious group that believes in the power of faith healing or in the power of prayer to heal. Such exemptions have resulted in the death of many children whose lives have been saved by legitimate medical treatment.’”
Gee, sound a tad familiar? He could have changed a few words and been describing the 12 Step methodology to T!!!!! Ok, now for today’s humorous observation….
I love how the AA sheeple refer to people who actually wake up and leave the mind numbing cult to go on and live authentic, joyous and productive lives in the “normie” world as being “dry drunks”. They accuse them of being in “denial” & “dysfunctional”. Really? Take a look in the mirror oh wooly ones. Who is still encased in a whacked dependency? Who has shunned family and friends to spend all of their free time with their cult family? Who has surrendered their free will and succumbed to group think and slogans? Who is recovering one day at a time for eternity instead of simply overcoming their dependency and moving on?
Dry drunks? Look in the mirror….. Until next time, peace out....
