Do doctors find propaganda value in religion? Perhaps they do. Why do people consult them? Because they are afraid to die, that's why! I am a testimony to that fact. Believe me, I would very much like to get to the point where I can tell the doctors to just plain kiss off! Because they take half of my hard earned paycheck, they have in effect made me a slave. But the only way they can really make me a slave is to make me afraid not to consult them.
When I started getting sick years ago, I thought I was going to die. The teachings of hell have greatly influenced my thinking, even though I was trying to fight those influences. If it weren't for the fear of hell, I would most likely had let nature take its course.
Doctors in the United States anyway are nothing but a bunch of huckstering businessmen. But their business would dwindle badly if people only stopped being afraid. That's why doctors need religion, so they can have patients to pay them money, so they can play golf on weekends and hire callgirls in the evening (what? don't they love their wives?). Perhaps to be of the medical profession was once a great calling (ie. Luke), but today it's a business opportunity.
This morning, when I was on desk duty, someone called me complaining of a noisy party. Our company's policy prohibits us desk people from acting in the scope of a police officer. So I had advised him to call the police. A few minutes later he calls back and starts giving me a ration of trash, saying he's going to complain about me to the management, because he expects me to act in a manner in which I'm prohibited to do so. In the course of his fussing, he talks about how he's a dedicated doctor, wanting to help people. I felt like giving him a piece of my mind, but I had to restrain myself. Just wait until I end up in his hospital and become his patient! I'll sure tell him what for!
Well, I just needed to vent a little this morning, thanx.
