Another great reason to keep kids away from religion...

Peter Popoff strikes again!

I just found this one... I cannot believe I did not run across it before now.  This is a brilliant example of just how easy it is to manipulate people when they have been taught to have complete unquestioning faith in religion.  

I was taught from an early age that Jesus did heal the sick and even raise the dead.  How much of a leap is it to assume that a prophet of God could do the same?  I understand that guys like this are so over the top that most rational people can dismiss them outright, but the problem lies in the fact that people brought up without an emphasis on skepticism/critical thinking are being brought up unarmed against very harmful scams such as this.

It's not so much that scumbags like him piss me off, it's the mindless imbeciles that believe this kind of crap. I have no sympathy for the people who lost all of their money. They needed a wake up call and apparently they got one. Let's just hope its enough so that they can see the real truth = religion is a business.
