Amid the mass of aid agencies piling in to help Haiti quake victims is a batch of Church of Scientology "volunteer ministers", claiming to use the power of touch to reconnect nervous systems.

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Hmmm. Those of us who are old enough would remember the Filipino "faith healers" who shot to international fame in the 1970s, and were quickly exposed as frauds. Nothing new under the sun ....

Sadly, the death of the son of a very famous Scientology member has not deterred this group.  I am still upset that there was not a trial regarding the discontinuation of this child's seizure medicine.  Yes, I realize that medicine can have side effects, but one of the side effects of not taking your medicine is death.

I'm quite angry to see they are appropriating the Cross for their use.  Is that to make people think they are Christian?
