Keep medicine and religion separate
Medical issues addressed in a hospital require doctors and nurses. Clergy can be excellent supportive friends. Hospital chapels are OK too. [“Letter: Same care delivered,” Northwest Voices, June 11.]
We must tell the boards of medical centers that the best medical opinions are from licensed physicians and nurses. Only a tiny fraction of clergy, including bishops, could ever have been admitted to and completed medical school. Encyclicals and sermons are not of medical derivation.
