But by all means he should head over to Liberia and touch every ebola patient he can.

We'll see if he's right...or dead.  And no special medical treatment for the guy.  Let his fucking 'god' save his sorry ass.
The Christian church, in its attitude toward science, shows the mind of a more or less enlightened man of the Thirteenth Century. It no longer believes that the earth is flat, but it is still convinced that prayer can cure after medicine fails.

Not ONE person has ever been cured of anything by praying. NOT ONE. Yet this pastor thinks ebola is going to be cured by muttering some magical incantation over the sick person's head? Fine, he should be sent to a hospital to test that idea.
"Prayer, how to do nothing and still think you're immunizing people."
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Yeah, that whole "slain in the sprit" thing takes on another dimension when dealing with shit that can slay back.
