During a recent interview on PBS, Rep. Cori Bush claimed that she had rid a homeless woman of tumours simply by using her hands. She also said that she's a firm believer in the power of "faith healing." She went so far as to

The Firing Line's Margaret Hoover questioned whether Bush equated medical treatments with spiritual treatments. The congresswoman, who is also a nurse and a pastor, said they were both useful, but remained steadfast in her convictions.



"You write about healing through faith," Hoover began. "At one point, you came across a woman with 'several visible tumours on her torso'. Tell me what happened."

Bush explained that at that time, she and a group of her friends were out on the street to meet with, pray with, and feed people when a homeless woman riddled with tumours came up to them asking if they could feel her. "I just remember I put my hand on her, and my hand just began to move, and the lumps that were there were no longer there and she was so happy, and she went on about her day."

"So you think the tumours disappeared?" Hoover asked, to which Bush responded, "I do." She also said she never saw the woman again.

She went on to suggest that, "if I can speak a prayer and I can believe what I believe, and you believe that this will help you, then why not offer that to people, because I know prayer has helped me."

When pressed by Hoover on whether she equated spiritual healing and medical healing, Bush claimed they were "similar," because in both cases patients "believe" that the treatments will help them in their situations.

"As the nurse I am following the doctor's instructions and giving them whatever the doctor says that they should have, and also for those patients that would say 'would you also pray with me,' I would pray with them."

Hoover told Bush that people were unlikely to believe the aforementioned story, to which the congresswoman replied, "They are not the woman that had the tumours."
