T.B. Joshua, lead pastor of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), says that he has cured at least one woman of HIV. His is only one of a growing number of evangelical churches in the UK promising HIV and AIDS healing if infected people will just stop taking their meds and start trusting God.
One Londoner says she was expressly told by a church representative her HIV could be removed with a heavy dose of devotion. “I was told they can cure any illness on Earth through prayer, including HIV,” Mary Buhari told the BBC.
Meanwhile at least three HIV+ women have already died because they stopped taking medication in favor of a prayer cure.
