Regulating medical care

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 28, 2004

According to a recent government report, as noted in the Washington Times

Prayer is the most commonly used "alternative medicine," according to a survey of more than 31,000 adults released by the National Institutes of Health yesterday — more popular than acupuncture, chiropractic care, yoga, vitamins and other complementary medical therapies.

Now government regulators have a way of inserting themselves into all the nooks and crannies of our daily activity, so imagine what the FDA (or the California Supreme Court) might contemplate doing when it discovers that the members of Courage pray for healing from their homosexual demons?
