Darlene Bishop, a tele-evangelist with a nationwide following, does not do things by half. When she and her husband Lawrence erected a statue of ***** on the grounds of their mega church in Monroe, Ohio, they made it 18m high.

No less gargantuan are her claims about the power of prayer to overcome illness. Through a series of sermons, books and a television show, Sisters, broadcast on religious satellite channels throughout the United States and abroad, she preaches that God has the power to heal even the most deadly diseases, including cancer.

But the contention is now the subject of a court action. Four of Bishop's relatives are suing her over her claim that God cured their father -- her brother -- of throat cancer. He died of the disease 18 months ago.

Well, she's technically (biblically) correct in saying G0d HAS the power, but whether G0d USES it, and if for EVERYONE who asks is a completely different question.

Religion (no matter which) is like the cosmetics industry, they peddle hope, little else.

Good to see she's at least being taken to task, only in the US would people sue their own family over this though. :D
