Pentecostal pastor told me water would cure my HIV

Doctors have warned that patients with HIV are giving up their medicine after being told by Pentecostal church pastors to rely on faith in God instead.

Medical staff working with children and young people say the lives of some church members are being put in danger because they are wrongly being told they can be cured.

In one case, an HIV-sufferer was given a plastic bottle of water by his pastor and told it would heal him. He later stopped taking his medicine and his condition worsened.

Of course, it's total bullshit. It's also professionally negligent so those pastors should be insured.

I want to ask this fucker one very simple question:

Just How Many Times has he seen a genuinely diagnosed case of HIV / AIDS absolutely confirmed CURED with his lousy water?  I'm willing to bet it's roughly as many as I have toes on my right hand...
