However, according to a complaint from the WA Department of Health, Catanzaro promotes unapproved cancer vaccines he has developed in his c … [Read more...]

Note To David Barton And Kenneth Copeland: PTSD Is Real

PTSD BRAINS

Kenneth Copeland's and David Barton's teaching on post-traumatic stress disorder struck a raw nerve.On Veteran's Day, Copeland and Barton claimed that the Old Testament book of Numbers 32 is a promise that soldiers who fight for God are promised that they will return from battle and can get rid of PTSD if they cast out demonic influences. Reaction was swift and negative. Predictably, left leaning groups castigated the two. However, equally strong was the reaction from evangelical and … [Read more...]

The American College of Pediatricians versus the American Academy of Pediatrics: Who leads and who follows?

Just for fun, let's compare the American College of Pediatricians with the American Academy of Pediatrics.In August, David Barton and Rick Green at Wallbuilders said the ACP is the leading association of pediatricians in the nation.

We need to do much more to secure a safe and reasonable national policy. … [Read more...]
