It will be an opportunity to see which 'religious' hospitals truly seek to serve the Savior...and which pay him lip service while actually worshiping at the altar of the almighty dollar.

Well, since they all exist to make a profit, my guess would be none.

I work for a hospital and have a good idea how their finances work. This "opportunity" will separate hospitals into two groups: the living and the dead.

MrMannn, that isn't going to happen and you know it. You're just spewing hot air to impress your cyber harem on RR.

I'd rather be in the hospital having a colonoscopy with my roommate having sex in the bed right besides me--gay OR straight--than be within a ten mile radius of your hateful ass.

...or which hospital cares more about the patient, than about some tired old imaginary sky-bully.

Medicare is the single largest health care payer in the country, medicaid is also a huge source of income. Hospitals that refuse those payers will be bankrupt in a month. They may also be violating the ADA and other laws if they turn these patients away.

"It will be an opportunity to see which 'religious' hospitals truly seek to serve the Savior...and which pay him lip service while actually worshiping at the altar of the almighty dollar."

I would say about 99% of the latter is true. Most major hospitals are now incorporated, and your little community St. Whatsits is probably just a part of a larger organization, and officially has little or nothing to do with any religion anymore.

I would dearly like to see you making your Saviour pay up for the new MRI equipment.

Or, you know, DO THEIR FUCKING JOBS! Saving people's life and limbs regardless of what/who they are. I believe there's some kind of Oath that most, if not all medical care providers take. Hippocratic, but I have this feeling that it would be Hypocritcal in most "religious" hospitals...

It will be an opportunity to put fundie operations out of business.

Go on, try that. After all, running a hospital is rather expensive. I hope you all like bankruptcies!

You obviously don't mean the "savior" who supposedly healed anybody who asked.

Wait, you want hospitals to "serve the savior" by turning away elderly and/or poor patients? And a hospital that will treat them is the one "just paying him lip service?" In what twisted world does that make any- oh wait, this is RR. Never mind!

The altar of the almighty dollar?

That's Pat Robertson.

You weren't one of the owners of that pharmacy a few posts down that decided to stop selling all those "sinful" goods, were you? Seems like this is pretty much the same business strategy.

"It will be an opportunity to see which 'religious' hospitals truly seek to serve the Savior...and which pay him lip service while actually worshiping at the altar of the almighty dollar."

I suspect there wouldn't be many closing since even churches would rather have money than Gawd.

Yeah it'll be nice to see which "religious" hospitals truly seek to save lives and which ones would rather let the sick suffer.

Because you know Jesus turned down sinners and poor sick people all the time! Oh wait... no he didn't.

In the USA, all hospitals exist to make money, so I'm guessing none will pay attention to your little temper tantrum.
By the way, you do realize that millions of Christian Americans rely on Medicaid and Medicare, right?

"which 'religious' hospitals truly seek to serve the Savior...and which pay him lip service while actually worshiping at the altar of the almighty dollar."

As far as your country's concerned, it's all of them. Even the ones that supposedly 'serve' the so-called 'Saviour' actually worship Mammon more than your 'God'.

Just ask Trijicon. Two Words: Bad PR.

But then, if you're a True Christian™ as you lot on Ruptured Retards claim to be, why do you even need healthcare? Why are you so worried about Obama's Health Reform Bill that's just come into law? Why should you be worried? Seems you don't put much faith in your 'faith'; a prayer a day should keep the doctor away.

Amirite?

Besides, Mr(Wo)Mannn & ehbowen (and everyone on Ruptured Retards), ask yourselves this question:

When Jesus healed the sick, lame, blind, lepers, insane et al, did he charge them for his services?

If you can answer the only way possible, you've just destroyed your own argument.

Right, I forgot about that bit in the Bible.

As written in the Gospel of Asshat, 4:20-21 "And Jesus said, 'And they shall ask for help, they shall beg for you to save them in their hour of need. And you shall deny them, for they do not hold to everything you do. In this way shall you spread my Father's love through the world.'"

This...this angers me like little else. The prospect of a homosexual being there for his/her partner, GIVING THEM COMFORT IN THEIR TIME OF NEED, is bad. Are you FUCKING serious. I don't care if you're gay. I don't care if you're straight. I don't care if you're bisexual, trisexual, pansexual, asexual, what the fuck ever, if you wish to deny someone who is wounded or sick, scared and alone the right to have someone they know, trust and love to be at their side, and comfort them, to say nothing of the person who is otherwise in limbo, not knowing what's going on with his/her loved one while they wait in the waiting room, you are a heartless, soulless sorry excuse for humanity. I don't care if you disagree with homosexuality. This isn't about morality. This is about denying us something to spite us, pure, flat and simple.

You, sir, wouldn't know compassion if it jumped up, and bit you in your likely substantial ass.

How typical of a religious organisation. Punish the innocent X because you're not allowed to punish the innocent Y. Your christ would be rolling over in his grave.
