Well, what are you waiting for?

Jesus RX: The untold tale behind Mercy Ministries' one-size-fits-all prescription for recovery.

The best part, IMHO, is the conclusion:

"The whole time I was at Mercy I had blinders on," she says. "For years, I was looking straight ahead, thinking I was the worst person on Earth. Then I took them off and everything got clear."

Last year, she finally gathered the strength to return to Tennessee. She knows Alcorn denies ever having a lesbian relationship or running a gay-recovery ministry. But that doesn't phase her. She saw all she needed to see on her second day back in the state.

"We go into this coffee shop," she says, smiling. "The same one where Nancy used to take me so she could bump into Lisa, right? And guess who walks through the door?"

She's beams at the thought of the punchline. Nancy didn't say a word when she saw Wynne that day. Nancy didn't need to. Her face said it all.

"She was white as a sheet."

It doesn't make sense by itself, so read the piece already.

Um, you've just transferred to my old color scheme. Some of the people who read my blog complained about it hurting their eyes, for whatever that might be worth...

Yeah, I can easily see how this could hurt ones eyes.

I think you should shut up.
Also, I don't care for the new colours.

Hey Cynic Sage, let us know how you go with the lawyers. If MM have been filing false copyright claims they should be held responsible.

By all accounts they have also been using photos of their patients in their printed promo material without their permission.
What a hypocritical organization.

I'm going to be talking to my pastor about them this weekend and I encourage all Christians to do the same.
