"Th problem with this line of reasoning is that with a mortgage, all that matters is whether the payment was made, not whether it was attempted, whereas with medical treatment, since outcomes cannot be assured, one can only insist that it is tried."

Malcolm replied to Wayne's discussion 'Do you think that it should be legal for parents to use prayer as a method of healing to their children?'
"The fact that they are using prayer should be irrelevant, since it is not a form of medical treatment. Basically, the question should be, did they seek appropriate medical care for their child? What they do outside of this (such as prayer) is not…"

Your Religious Status
Secular/Nonreligious/Agnostic, Buddhism
About Me:
Hey, name's Wayne and while I do observe Buddhist customs, I do not think there is a monkey god in the sky watching me. I am agnostic/bordering atheist and I like Owl City, Kittens, and Anime. I prefer not to give out my age, etc. Also, I will disclose my AIM and Skype ONLY IF I KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH.
Why you left your religion.
The bible was self-contradicting and barbaric, also it made no logical sense. I decided that I could no longer be a follower of this religion.
