Now that RU: Schools of Discipleship has collected enough personal and legal information to steal your identity or mess with your life, they move on to collecting health information.
If RU was an employer, they would be allowed to ask if you can perform the job you are applying for.
If RU was a medical facility, they would ask detailed questions about your health after accepting you as a patient.
At this point, remember:
- all information is being collected prior to acceptance into the program
- RU has no written policy on who has access to your records or how those records will be managed if you are accepted or rejected from the program.
- At least one current staff member has been in prison for unspecified charges.
Interesting fact: If you are “required” to volunteer for anything, you are not volunteering any more.
- I don’t trust these goofballs enough to give them a list of prescription drugs I am using right now, let alone a list of drugs that were abused with dates and length of time I used them. Minor annoyance: they spelled length as “legth”.
- I can live with the question about hospitalization for mental illness. The details of when, why, where and discharge date are none of their damn business on an application.
- I can live with the therapist question. The dates and reasons are none of their business.
- The list of health issues is both strangely over-detailed and missing things at the same time.
- How many adults have NEVER had a toothache or backache?
- Leukemia is a type of cancer.
- “Kidney, Thyroid, and Prostate” are names of organs not disorders.
- HIV is missing; AIDS is the point where someone’s immune function is impaired from HIV.
- Odd omissions: asthma, allergies, skin disorders, sleep disorders, and muscular disorders.
