Bigbaker is right, John! This is NOT some joke! This poor woman suffered horrifically! And her family is suffering terribly now, knowing what she went through. This is everyone's nightmare, hence why they made that movie, but it's horribly insensitive to joke about someone dying in so much pain and terror!

This should just about put to rest the argument about god. Bible is clear, and so is Koran: pray and it will be answered. any of you think this women did not pray? Now, you need to pray like you mean it, out of your heart, with all your power for prayer to be answered by almighty god. Any of you think this woman "kind of" or was she sweating for real while praying? Any of you donating money to organized religions is a moron, and the biggest moron is the government with their tax breaks for religious organizations. There is no sane explanation regarding god not answering this woman's prayers no matter her "sins" and stuff...the suffering in this case makes no sense unless...her prayers went to santa claus who we know answers prayers just like god. Sad but this is the truth: facts don't lie: woman prayed, woman died, no gods. Need more facts? The more religious a society is the more violent is...facts don't lie and one doesn't need "faith" to see it, only decency to understand what can't be yet explained has being labeled by crooks as "god." In a few hours is sunday...go pray and sing some peace hymns hahahahhha. (we have an interesting race in the 10th district...Schneider versus Dold...let's see which one mentions god the most and which one "forgets" to mention this woman's cold end. Religions are like parks, use them to relax, recharge, calm down so let's see which candidate is "closer to god" and "talks" to god" and which one understand human race needs more common-sense and less religion. Can't wait for the debates :)
