Secular Sunday, Part Deux: Faith Healing

This is too good to not share. In this bright, catchy, calypso piece (with a full orchestra!), Tim Minchin brilliantly destroys the idea of faith healing:

“… Now I understand how prayer can work:

A particular prayer in a particular church
In a particular style with a particular stuff
And for particular problems that aren’t particularly tough,
And for particular people, preferably white
And for particular senses, preferably sight
A particular prayer in a particular spot
To a particular version of a particular god

And if you get that right, he just might
Take a break from giving babies malaria
And pop down to your local area
And fix the cataracts of your mum!
