Secular Discernment

The Church Report has this story:

Guyanese health officials have criticized an American television evangelist for a series of advertisements they say suggest people can be cured of HIV/AIDS by
attending the preacher's services in this South American nation.

The ministry of Rev. Ernest Angley, a Pentecostal preacher who exhorts illness-causing demons to leave a person's body at "crusade services," was involved in an "obscene exploitation of people's vulnerability" by claiming that people with HIV/AIDS could possibly be cured, Guyana's Health Ministry said in a Saturday statement.

"We are unaware of the existence to date of any cure anywhere in the world for HIV infection," the statement said.

Isn't it interesting that the secular world often has more discernment than the Christian world?
