Faith Healing in Oregon
In what is a hard choice in a tough situation, the state took custody of a child who needs medical care. The child’s family is part of a religion that has had repeated problems with children dying when they fail to get care for treatable problems, and parents have gone to jail.
This time, they removed the child from the home before there was a death.
My favorite line from the story is the father asking if there was a way to appease the state and keep his child. Well, yes, actually. Take the kid to the doctor. There are lots of them that believe in God, and can even pray before they treat the child.
