Well, that was not so much the benign puff that I though it was going to be. In fact it was way out of order.
She is going on about her daughter having Asthma and using "touch assists" to help her with it.
This shit might fly in some other countries but they are really treading on thin ice pulling that bullshit here because what this is, in effect, is a free commercial for unlicensed medical practice intending to suck people into scientology on the basis that theory moonbat quackery is going to help some poor sick child to deal with their dibilitating disease. Asthma and other respiratory conditions can be helped with physiotherapy and the danger is that because "touch assists" are also "hands on" then you have a situation where the gullible get into the idea that this is not just a harmless addition (when there is no asthma attack eipsode going on) but an actual alternative. This is their M.O. and although there maybe many who manage to retain common sense and do not suffer, this is just where the tip of the iceberg pokes out.
Ex-scientologist Tory "magoo" Christman here on OCMB knows, with the cult telling her to come off her epilepsy meds, which then darn near killed her.
Lisa McPherson, killed with cult quackery in a hotel room after being pulled out of a perfectly useful hospital.
The list goes on and on.
There are wrongful death lawsuits going on right now in Florida (Kyle Brennan) and Georgia (Patrick Desmond) against scientology right now over the same issues of scientology dogma/quackery first, medicine second (or not at all) and they need to stop it because they are literally killing people with this fake self-help/pseudo-religious moonbattery that operates below the criminal radar and only comes to a civil case when someone is badly harmed or dies and has enough persistence to fight a very rich and viciously defensive cult.
