Faith healer John of God: Another Tragic Death
This is heartbreaking news, but true! Remembering Lisa Melman. The woman used by Oprah to shamelessly promote Brazilian faith healer John of God to the world as a great healer. Lisa Melman, who had breast cancer was interviewed on Oprah’s show in 2005. There was a lot of WOO about John of God then on that show and Lisa was influenced and chose to be healed solely by JOG and forgo REAL medical treatment. She suffered as the cancer grew, despite all JOG ‘s ‘spiritual surgeries’. The actual ‘spiritual surgery’ entailed the insertion of a pair of surgical forceps UP HER NOSE! And that’s supposed to heal breast cancer. Recently, The news show 60 Minutes with Michael Usher, did an scathing investigative report of John of God, prior to his arrival to Australia in Nov 2014. Calling John of God’s pretend medical treatment horrendous and barbaric! And grilling him about his sexual molestation charges and the great deal of money he makes(in the millions) by fooling sick and desperate people with absolutely no creditable records of healing treatments! And labeling him not John of God, but JOHN THE CON
She died of the cancer in 2012.
JOG’s subsequently modified their ‘protocols’ and image by issuing press releases stating not to be held responsible or guarantee any physical healings. And ‘visitors’ MUST see a medical specialist for medical problems. Big Business, there! Read Disclaimer: some faith!!!
