Overly devout Christians always amuse me (The Daily News, Sept. 6). This woman who wrote the letter to the editor let her mentally ill relative get worse and worse while they prayed or wrote for people to pray for her. All the praying and what happened? She only got worse.
Finally, a non-brainwashed member of the family stepped in and took her to get medical and professional help. The writer even states “Clare’s psychiatrist got through to her and found the right medications.” Most people would give that a score for science but not the devout. It was a miracle from God!
She goes on to state how powerful prayer and God is yet all she had previously explained was how once common sense was applied and science her relative got better. All praying did was make the writer feel better about not doing anything to actually help her family member. It frustrates me to know these kinds of people are actually allowed to make decisions about others’ care when they have a nonsense view of reality.
Half the letter talks about how science has helped her relative or given her stats to conclude a mine would be harmful, but then she goes back to pray to stop it as it is shown in a book thousands of years ago to have made a wall fall down after blowing horns.
Makes sense, more strong logic.
If there is a God, I’d like to think stopping a mine in Canada would be low on his list after stopping wars, disease and poverty around the world. But I’m only a silly believer in science and not that people can live in fish for a year. so what do I know.
