Northwest Voices

Seattle Times letters to the editor

June 19, 2013 at 8:00 PM

UW Medicine alliance with PeaceHealth

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.

John Freeburg, Bremerton
