      Agreed Leon. it gets really annoying really quick. And they wonder why I don't believe in a all knowing but completely unprovable father figure that has one sin that's unforgivabl;e.... asking if it's real.... aka blaspheme

      It's a hospital, so they's still medicate and do what they can to help you. Plus, we all know most doctors are Jewish, so, there's that.

      Okay guys, I agree that a private or community owned hospital would be better, and I'm not a religitard but you don't have to be ignorant about it. Yeah, the way Kendall wrote it kinda had it coming for him, but respect beliefs and all that shit.

      @anyone who does @kendall God doesn't just give shit for free. You have to earn it. Do you know what it would be like if God answered everybody's prayers? Complete and utter chaos. Haven't you ever seen Bruce Almighty? It's a fine example of that.

      And Freq-Sho, God is provable. And you ARE allowed to question his existence. It's called "free will". Also, the unforgivable sin is mocking the holy spirit. If you do this, then you will surely go to hell. I pray for you.

      I swear. I'm sure many religious hospitals are great but I've already had a bad experience with a doctor at one. He said my cut open leg would heal if I just ~believed~ in it it. If he didn't do anything for a little longer, I could have died from the blood loss.

      And people who are talking about praying for a nice new car, praying dosent work like that. You have to work to get what you want. The bible isnt just going to GIVE you things. You have to work and will help you if it sees something unjust. it may take longer than you want and it may never happen at all because you need to have faith and kindness in order to live on.

      You do realize that's not how things work, right? They use conventional medical practices just the same as any other hospital. The only difference is that they are backed by a religious institution in place of a community-driven institution.

      Bob2ball has never been to a religous church, nor has heard of one. A religious church doesn't pray, moron, they just abide by the rules of their religions, such as no abortions, obligatory burial rites, etc. It''s a hospital with a priest in it, and usually they have cutting-edge technology as taxes dont apply 90% of the time because its a "religious institution"
