Amazing! Faith-healing manslaughter is similar to medical-healing manslaughter. They both share a common factor:
Preventable deaths are caused by negligence and ignorance.
When you compare the actual mortality rate of faith-healing quacks, and compare their total to the healthcare system's medical-healing quacks, the faith-healer quacks aren't so bad after all.
I'm not excusing sicko gurus, but medical gurus have a much higher death toll overall, and I'm taking the ratio of the patients treated by both systems into equation.
