    No, sir. Many, many physicians don't take the Hippocratic Oath (choosing an alternative oath instead) and haven't done so for over 30 years.

    It's a scary thought.
    A zombie apocalypse is also a scary thought, and about as likely to occur as this scenario that you've outlined.

    Theocracies and those who advocate them are a danger to everything that is decent, civilized, rational, intelligent and desired by people any and everywhere in the world.

    Zombies don't exist. Christians Do. So I would say the likelihood of the latter is far greater.

    Non sequitur and entirely irrelevant to my point.

    Then you would be wrong, because the likelihood of both is absolutely zero.

    You tied to excuse the bigotry because she may have taken a different version or different oath as a physician. Now when asked if you know any that would condone it, it becomes irrelevant or more like you are fresh out of excuses?
