There Are No Theists In Hospital Waiting Rooms

Have to post the video just for the great title alone.

But the information is also important and sad.  Before watching this video, please do yourself a favor and read Those Who Walk Away From Omelas if you never have before.  It’s worth experiencing reading it for yourself before watching the video since the video gives away the ending of it without giving the full picture the story lays out.

    Well well, the narrator makes a foolish assumption. He vilifies these misled parents by accusing them of choosing faith over health, when the fact is that most of the parents fully believe that their child will be healed.
    What an idiot.
