"It's always reassuring to find you've made the right enemies." -- William J. Donovan
now there are grey areas they can try and play in but in general the answer is factually no
laws, individual rights and medical/sciences regulations/safety standards rank first
a hospital is not a religious realm and has nothing to do with religion.
They cant refuse people of other religions treatment in the ER simply based on religion
They can deny me my legal spouse privileges because i wasn't married by their religious rules
They cant deny homosexual treatment simply based on sexuality
THey cant deny me the right to have a rabbi visit me
etc etc etc
they can choose to not do any elective procedures they want and Im fine with that but once one the procedure is no longer elective and it is needed to save my life or to elevate a large risk to my life based on medical/science facts, regulations and safety standards they have no right at all to deny that.
never said they didnt have "history" lol
try to keep up and in context and follow whats actually being discussed instead of inserting false meaning into my posts that isnt there.
a hospital is factually not a religious realm and has nothing to do with religion and thats the way it is in america. What factually makes it that way? Laws, rights, facts and medical science standards and regulatory processes.
Marriage has ties to religion and history with religion too, the fact remains though that legal marriage has nothing to do with religion based on the same things mentioned above
theres a huge and factual difference. I can have a religious dinner doesnt make all dinners religious matters under the law lol
Sorry you misunderstood.
