If any of you believe that oil and prayer cured stage 4 cancer in one day, you need help.


Arguing with Stillwater is a nice distraction, but he's made it very clear in other posts he's in isolation not out in the world spreading Covid - quite the opposite; so if he or anyone else wants to share their prayers while also acting responsibly? More power to them.

It's a good time for everyone to be more understanding and patient.

Some people feel this is just a virus and they'll get over it if they catch it and move on; and KAT's story and others are making it clear that Covid is nothing to be trifled with. That age is not the only factor, and that there can be long-term damage even after recovery.


Prayer and positive thinking while you’re isolating is absolutely fine. I have no problem with that. I personally don’t think it does anything when done in a vague, general way but if others do, more power to them.

Claiming that laying hands, anointing oils, and prayer cured stage 4 cancer overnight is dangerous as hell and complete BS.


Which is why I mentioned he's been a strong proponent of preparation and isolation.

I mean, as far as I'm concerned, if he wants to believe a miracle saved his relative ... whatever. There's nothing I can do to confirm nor deny his claim. If he was even hinting that people should ignore health warnings about Covid and just pray, that's something else - but I know from his other posts that'd be the opposite of what he's been saying.

The written form is often inadequate and when we try to guess what people mean rather than ask them ... we generally just end up in flamewars.

Alright, pretend that you are at an event and you're introduced to two people. You're talking about Coronavirus and you these are the reactions you get.

Person A says "we need to stop sending prayers and start funding scientists so they can find a vaccine."

Person B says "my aunt had stage 4 cancer and was given a death sentence. I brought her to church and we laid hands on her, anointed her with oils and her cancer was gone in the morning. We need to focus on prayer for the victims."

Now maybe both people annoy you but which one of those people are you going to think is a total nutjob?

No, the exact opposite. If you move elsewhere. there are high chances of spreading it.


If you are there and don't have it chances are at some point you will.

I understand the larger picture but your first responsibility is to yourself and your family. Get out now while you still can.

Nevertheless, a friend of mine is a dr. at a hospital at the moment. He said hospitals are the worst place to be because of the close proximity of infected people to one another, which, apparently, worsens the symptoms. That said, I doubt Kats mom will be in some standard hospital.


I was in the hosp on the 4th and 5th of this month for something unrelated and I wanted to gtfo there, at least partially because of this CV. Personnel were already wearing masks then, btw. There was a movie from 1983 called Silkwood. Starred Meryl Streep and Kurt Russell and Cher. It was about a whistleblower at a nuclear plant named Karen Silkwood who mysteriously ran off the road and died in the 70s. There were shower scenes in that movie after the workers would get a radiation leak and I wanted to take a Silkwood shower with brushes and scrapers as soon as I got home. Good movie, btw. One of those "watch once in your life if at all" movies, but interesting.

We still have lots of ignorant people not taking this very seriously. Maybe some of them will see the post from a celeb they follow and change their attitude/ behavior.

Insinuating that the Christian's are nut jobs is discriminating against a religion and shouldn't be tolerated here...Be better than that.

Also, why cant people do both? Send prayers, while also funding scientific cures for the virus. Most of the people I know have done both and all are capable they aren't mutually exclusive.

New York is absolutely going to collapse. I really hope 100% of the people realize how serious is this, and act in consequence. Keep strong everybody.

Yep if you have a loved one in New York GET THEM OUT NOW. New York is going to look like a snake plissken movie soon you won't be able to move around to another state even if you want to they are already quarantining people from New York for 14D they are just one step away from banning visitors from their state entirely.

WHO has called New York the new epicentre worse then Italy worse then Wuhan worse then Spain. Cuomo has no idea what he is doing and clearly didn't properly plan for what is happening.

I hope KAT's mom makes a turn for the better and recovers fully.

Both his parents have tested positive from what I gather, and the way the virus has affected each gives a stark look at what people have been facing: some, relief that it's not so bad; others, great fear at the unknown paths the virus can take, and quickly.

It's on everybody who was in a position of influence or power and underplayed this. The images, videos and stories coming out of NY are brutal. It's exactly the same sh*t we saw 2 weeks ago coming out of Italy.

Terrible advice. Stay in your home and eat everything in your cabinets, freezer and refrigerator before you come out.

It’s only just begun. This is going to spread to every community in America that doesn’t take it serious. I feel bad for the states that aren’t locked down. Theres such denial. This went from a market in China to every inch of the globe. It will continue into every community, school, etc. unless aggressive measures are taken.

Pretty sure he didnt insuate nothing, he asked a question, you came to the conclusion and assumed by yourself he was talking about Christians that were the nutjobs. Why is that?
