      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 do both. I pray and still go and get treatment. There is nothing in the bible that says modern medicine is of the Devil. So there's no harm in it. And vice versa. There's nothing wrong with a little prayer!

      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.

      a religious hospital is not a fait-based hospital you and everyone who agrees with you are getting this messed up. in faith-base hospitals are those that are only prayer-base. try looking shit up before you talk about it.

      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"

    I don't really get this Q, going to a faith based hospital wouldn't keep you from actual medical care and I'm sure they wouldn't shove any religion down your throat, the other wouldn't be unprofessional just a private practice. This question is lame

    You all do realize that some of the BEST hospitals in the WORLD are faith based. That doesn't mean they just sit around and pray. They have more funding and better trained doctors than small rural hospitals. Even if you're not religious, I'd still want the best care.

    honestly both can be amazing or aweful, however I had a horrible experience with bad people in a private hospital, people who believe in a power or cause, religious or not, tend to be better human beings and I would rather put my, or my wifes life in caring hands then profiting hands.

    Dear all u atheists out there, you don't have to believe in God, or Jesus, or any of that, but it wouldn't kill u to respect the people that do. Religious people believe in medicine, and new technology, we aren't all Amish!!! But, we also believe in miracles because so many miracles have happened. We believe in gods love and healing powers. You don't even need to be catholic to be in the hospital, you don't need to take part in any of it.

    Having a religious hospital just means that they ask if you want a blessing or to have a priest give you the wafer. You don't have to though, and many religious hospitals are really good.
