Freedom of religion stops where another person's rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness begin.

I’ve seen the long term effects of medical neglect first hand. Allowing children to suffer and die needlessly is wrong. Any other parent in the state of Idaho would be prosecuted. This group should be held to the same standards and obey the same laws as the rest of Idaho.

I'm signing this petition because as a person that suffers from Bipolar Disorder, I have been the victim of countless exorcisms by faith healers, (Pentecostals) who thought they saw the Devil with me and wanted me off my medicine. I have heard of adults with Bipolar Disorder who have committed suicide or ended up in the mental hospital after being exorcised by faith healers and removed from their medicine. All the talk about the Devil standing next to me has made my illness worse and all I can think about 24/7 is if the Devil is in the room with me and how to get him out. My mental health counselor now has me diagnosed as psychotic because of all the thoughts faith healers have put in my head about the Devil. What started out as depression has turned into a phychotic disorder thanks to our good neighbors, the Pentecostals. I hope one of these days that not only children will be protected from faith healers but also adults that the state has classified as mentally ill. Mentally ill adults are easy to manipulate and need protection too. Thanks for reading! I hope this petition gives me power to fight back!

I was subjected to a faith healing service similar to this as a child. An itinerant preacher convinced my father that my nearsightedness was due to "Demons ofor Blindness". While not life-threatening, the prayer service itself was physically, emotionally and spiritually abusive. Religious faith shouldn't be a shield behind which people can hide while they traumatize the most vulnerable in our society.

These children have the right to life! To deny them that right is criminal. To prosecute others for neglect and abuse is hypocritical when anyone could claim that it's their belief whether religious or not to abuse their child in certain instances. This law has to be changed or the state is participating in accessory to murder.
