:shock: Oh my IPU, did the doctors prescribe prayer and fasting or was it regular bathing in holy water? :crazy:

I guess even Freud's therapy was more effective than that ...


To be fair, most countries have court ordered religious therapy for some crimes; specifically, people with alcohol or drug addictions are forced to undergo AA - which is, at best, a thinly veiled religious conversion attempt when watered down for "secularist" members (i.e. "You must accept there is a higher power or purpose") but some studies also suggest that AA is less effective than people giving up cold turkey.
