Churches tells HIV Patients they are Cured, and they Died

This is why religion needs to be checked.  Churches in England and Scotland lied to HIV patients and they died because of it:
A pastor at the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN), a wealthy televangelist organization with branches throughout the world, told one undercover reporter - who actually is HIV positive - that they had a 100% success rate.

"We have many people that contract HIV. All are healed," Holmes said.

Holmes even said that if symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea persist, it's a good sign that the virus is leaving the body.

"We've had people come back before saying, 'Oh, I'm not healed. The diarrhea I had when I had HIV, I've got it again'" Holmes said.

"I have to stop them and say, 'No, please, you are free.'"
One of the guys truly believed this mess:
One of the victims, Emmanuel, stopped taking his medicine a year ago after being instructed by a pastor at his church in London.
The pastor told him that once god forgave him, "the disease will definitely go."
But now Emmanuel believes he may have passed his HIV infection to his boyfriend.
"I feel guilty, if I'm the one who passed it onto him I'm feeling guilty. Yeah, very much guilty," he told Sky News.

This is evil. These churches lied and manipulated these people and now, they are dead!  I hope they are arrested and sent to court!

I wonder why all the church members seem to be black but all the healers and church leadership seem to be white? Why heal AIDS? What about Cancer or any other number of chronic illnesses? Are they catering to minorities somehow by offering the cure for HIV since the percentage of HIV positive people may be higher amongst minorities? Are they marketing specifically to blacks? Are blacks less likely to report this type of scam to the police? Are blacks more likely to believe the lie if the ones telling it are white? Lots of interesting social questions can come from something like this.

Faith is a dangerous thing to play with because it is so powerful. It's powerful because by it's very definition it doesn't require proof. If it doesn't work it's not the Preacher, Clergy or Church members fault. It's yours for not having enough faith. So the guilt stays with you. Dangerous stuff.
