I really want to learn more about Supernatural Organ Transplant. I'd like one of each supernatural organ, please, and I'll also take the backup heart.

I drink a good cup of tea every day. That seems to do the job.

They explicitly and literally say you no longer need to have faith, you can buy access to the keys of Heaven. If this were a parody, I'd call it over-the-top.
I'm normally on the permissive side of free speech arguments. But those false promises to cure people of all sorts of horrible mental and physical pain in exchange for money should be banned. It's just criminal fraud. It's no more ethical or legal than selling water as chemo solution, or tic-tacs as Alzheimer's cures.
Welcome, friend Whiskey, to America's "it's not a drug, it's a health supplement" laws. As long as you word your text to where you're not promising a cure (but between you and me, we promise you a CURE) you can sell just about anything as a health aid or what have you. And the amazing thing is people will fall all over themselves to defend you if you make your substance sound natural or homeopathic enough.
We have a toddler in our family, and when he caught a cold, we went to our local drug store to see if there was anything that might let the little bugger sleep through the night. There were TONS of medications sold right alongside Sudafed, Nyquil, and other brand-name medicines. I started looking at the boxes for what the active ingredients were. ALL of them were homeopathic. No doctor recommends ANY cold medication for kids, so the snake oil woo-peddlers have found a way to worm themselves into actual drug stores and nobody seems to care.
Anyway, apparently the same stupid shield from being shut down by those with half a brain applies to religious materials promising similar garbage. I'm of the opinion that if you choose this junk, you have to sign a waiver that denies actual medical treatment to you for whatever your ailment is, unless it's an infectious disease, in which case you're quarantined until you accept real treatment or you die of whatever stupidity you've chosen for yourself. At least then you won't endanger others.
Patent medicines and snake oil salesmen are part of our great American heritage you commies.

0:57-1:01 is good enough for me.

Five stars for "supernatural organ transplant". I would give 5 more for the "anointed DVD collection" bring a vision of migrant workers on a packing line using latex gloved hands to splash each disc with water from a faded bucket with a Sharpie drawn cross on the side.
