Scientologists ‘heal’ Haiti quake victims using touch

Oh, good.  Everything’s under control.  The Scientologists are there.

Amid the mass of aid agencies piling in to help Haiti quake victims is a batch of Church of Scientology “volunteer ministers”, claiming to use the power of touch to reconnect nervous systems….

Some doctors at the hospital are skeptical. One US doctor, who asked not to be named, snorted: “I didn't know touching could heal gangrene.”

When asked what the Scientologists are doing here, another doctor said: “I don't know.”

Do you care? “Not really,” she said, wheeling an unconscious patient out of the operating room to join hundreds of others in the hospital's sunny courtyard.
