De facto Christian Scientists

I listened to a story on Morning Edition today about how most Americans are without adequate health care. Nothing new there. But the story quoted a woman who said she foregoes health insurance and regular care, and instead "...prays that nothing goes wrong."

Nothing against the Church of Christ, Science, but I'd rather that people were practicing its tenets out of choice and not out of impoverished desperation. Just sayin'.
