Studies have shown that the effect prayer has, is non-existant at best, and damaging at worst. Yet regardless of the numbers, people still cling to the notion that prayer actually has some sort of a positive effect.
But every great once in awhile, someone catches on. And when they do, they're not too happy. Which is why, the four children of songwriter Darrel "Wayne" Perry are suing an aunt who convinced him to cease treatment and rely on prayer, resulting in his death.
Shame. The world could use a talented songwriter as opposed to yet another hack preying on the gullibility of her followers.
