I'm going to devote just a few words to this. You can see the imminent danger by clicking hereto see how the current bill will legalize religious fraud and provide it with public funding.
It is very simple: Non-scientific, fraudulent, religious-based prayer "treatments" will receive government funding.
As the Christian Scientists claim:
"We are making the case for this, believing there is a connection between healthcare and spirituality," Phil Davis, a church spokesman, told the reporters. "We think this is an important aspect of the solution, when you are talking about not only keeping the cost down, but finding effective healthcare."
Religious organizations will be able to get government funding for their evangelism under the cover of health care.My own church has no woo-woo healing but I can easily make some shit up and apply for government support. And, as a protest, I might just do that!
Please, please, contact your reps and insist that only medicine be included in the bill, and not the frauds perpetrated by spiritual "healers". They should be jailed for fraud, not rewarded with the People's money.
