MEDICARE/MEDICAID FUNDS GO TO CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS PRESENTED BY DAVE KONG Medicare/Medicaid funds, $8 million/year, are disbursed to Christian Science sanatoria -- “healing” centers run by the First Church of Christ Scientist where no healing takes place because illness and disease are believed to be merely illusory. American Atheists and CHILD, Inc. (Children’s Healthcare is a Legal Duty) are joining together to stop this unconstitutional misuse of public funds. Dave Kong (California Director for American Atheists) will also talk about his case against the sale of San Francisco’s Mt. Davidson cross.
