More on the 'prayer is good for you' topic:

Religion, spirituality may cut down hospital time
P.J. O'Rourke (a shill for the US Republican Party but a funny guy - met him once!) wrote that 'spirituality' is for people who are prosperous... they think they don't need God. (Like Taylor Marshall's observation on celebrity infatuation with Kabbalah: 'You can still believe in God and appear to fit into traditional Judeo-Christian mores, while at the same time engage in promiscuous sex with other Hollywooders'.) When things get tough, out goes fluffy 'spirituality'; people turn to religion.
