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.
Its good to see these scammers being held accountable.
