Man with no face fears his unborn child will inherit the same condition

Latif Khatana, 32, from Kashmir, India has a rare skin condition that causes growths and large skin creases that cover his face. Khatana cannot see or work to support his wife, who is seven months pregnant with his first child. Khatana fears that his unborn son or daughter will inherit his skin disease and become a social outcast like he is.
“I cannot wait to be a father and have some happiness in my life. But I worry every day and pray my child is not born like me,” he said in a recent interview.

Khatana lives high in the mountains with his 25-year-old wife, Salima, in abject poverty. When he travels to Srinagar to beg for money he is shunned and spat on by villagers.
Khatana was born with a small bump on his face that continued to grow until it covered his entire face with large folds and lumps of skin.
“My mother still cries when she looks at me. She feels so much guilt and cannot understand why her youngest boy was cursed,” he said.

What a god! People thank this so called god after seeing such proof one can't exsist if he's all power, all loving but does this to others? I don't believe in a god, that's absurd. But if there was one, this kind of stuff shows how much of a Dick he is!!
