But even assuming those were effective enough, do you think Schaibles will use any contraception method? I don't know the doctrine of their denomination or are they fringe enough to constitute a cult? If their church is fundamentalist enough to consider medical intervention a sin, I very much doubt that even calendar-based contraception would meet with the approval.

Then of course you could always pray the sickness away, or get exorcised. This woman, who was interviewed by Sid Roth, claimed to have put her son through an exorcism as a means to cure him: Kind of like what L.
Ron Hubbard did with scientology in its infacy. Anyone who sells MMS can become a "minister" and claim religious persecution if he is prevented from marketing the bleach.

I'm reminded of the Skoptsy cult in Russia. They believed that testicles and breasts were parts of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden, that God grafted onto Adam and Eve a some sort of weird surgical punishment.A major cause of agony for Aspergers (high functioning autistic) students, their parents and educators is the unsatisfactory completion of homework.
May 28, · Those of us who support science-based medicine and do our part to expose and combat quackery are naturally outraged at how rarely quacks are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Being parents is one of the most difficult tasks. Children are not born with a 'handbook'.
