Disabled Daughter of U.S. Faith Healers Wants to See Her Parents Prosecuted

Mariah Walton was born with a small hole in her heart. It could have been fixed with a relatively low-risk procedure when she was still a child, but her parents, devout Mormons, did nothing. They believed that through acts of faith, including lots of prayer, God would heal Mariah.

While We’re Adding Harriet Tubman to the $20, Let’s Remove “In God We Trust” from the Currency

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is set to announce that Harriet Tubman will soon grace the $20 bill, replacing former President Andrew Jackson.

That’s a wonderful change — it’s a long time coming — but if we’re already remaking the $20, why not go one step further?

Let’s get rid of “In God We Trust,” too.
