Wonder what you would find if you frisked a group of atheist doctors?

Answer: They are twice as likely to make decisions that shorten the life span of terminally ill patients!

😯 Yikes! The Guardian reports:

Doctors who are atheist or agnostic are twice as likely to take decisions that might shorten the life of somebody who is terminally ill as doctors who are deeply religious – and doctors with strong religious convictions are less likely even to discuss such decisions with the patient, according to Professor Clive Seale, from the centre for health sciences at Barts and the London school of medicine and dentistry.

“If I were a patient facing end of life care, I would want to know what my doctor’s views were on religious matters – whether they are non-religious or religious and whether the doctor felt that would influence them in the kinds of decisions they were looking at,” said Seale.

A patient who wanted their life prolonged at all costs in the event of a terminal illness, or did not want it prolonged, should make sure they had a doctor who was in sympathy with this.

Doctors are influenced by their beliefs, just as other people are, said Seale.

“It is easy for clinicians to present themselves as neutral appliers of science, but values do come into it,” he said. […]

Seale’s study, published online today in the Journal of Medical Ethics, was based on a survey of doctors in specialisms likely to care for people at the end of life, such as neurology, elderly and palliative care but also general practice. More than 8,500 doctors were contacted and almost 4,000 responded.

Interesting study… I know which doctor I would be choosing.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked The New York Times today?

Answer: President Barack “The One” Obama… Of course.

Check out this massive, unbiased image of President Obama that’s stamped all over The New York Times website:

The New York Times.

Hmm… 🙄 Is Nola Lopez just trying to add a little ‘pizazz’ to a mysterious photograph of President Obama? Or is Nola Lopez trying to compare President Obama to Jesus? Let’s break it down:

  • If Ms. Lopez was actually trying to add a little ‘pizazz’ to the photograph, it would be quite fascinating to see how she’d treat a photograph of former President George W. Bush… Would there be nifty little designs tacked on to the photograph that displays him in a positive light? Hmm… I doubt that would happen.
  • If Ms. Lopez was trying to compare President Obama to Jesus… Well… That would not shock me either actually. After all, it is The Obama – Oops! I mean – New York Times… I am sure they have a picture of him on a wall somewhere with an alter added on.
  • Or perhaps it could be the third option: It’s simply just the Red Cross medical symbol photoshoped over a picture of President Obama that just so happens to have an odd, religious-like lighting to it. Interesting: If the Red Cross logo doesn’t originate from Christianity, then why do they have the Red Crescent for Islamic states?

Which one could it be? Either way, I think it’s safe to say that the liberal mainstream media has struck again! Oh well… They are failing miserably anyway.

Side-Note: Personally, I enjoyed the comment left by Year_Of_The_Dingo on Hot Air’s coverage of this story:

Maybe the Times is subliminally suggesting that Obama was born in Switzerland.

HAHA! Props.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Texas college group ‘Atheist Agenda’?

Answer: Apparently they believe religion is the equivalent to porn.

Click the image above to watch the video. Sorry, I could not embed it.

I swear, some people will say and do anything to get a rise out of people. The mysterious Allahpundit – from Hot Air – breaks it down wonderfully:

A reminder that wherever there’s an opportunity to antagonize an innocent believer, we’ll be there. […] One: In case you’ve ever wondered why, even in a post-9/11 world, atheists rank below Muslimsin terms of traits the public dislikes in a politician, wonder no longer. Two: As dumb and distasteful as I find this, I can’t resist the dilemma it presents between acting on principle and doing the politically wise thing. Whenever that same dilemma comes up in a conservative context — look no further than Bunning’s stand tonight, although Rush’s “I hope he fails” comment is another example — I usually opt for the “politically wise” route and am derided for it in the comments. These tools are acting on principle too. Should they bottle it up instead to avoid alienating people, or is principle always the way to go?

Either way… How is the Bible or any other religious scriptures comparable to pornography? I guess I’ll just never understand atheists… Thank God! 😆

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the latest data obtained by Pew Research?

Answer: The most and least religious states.

I found this oddly interesting:

Only 22% of Alaskans say they attend religious services at least once a week, making Alaska the least religious state judged by this measure. In Utah and several Southern states, more than half of those surveyed by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life said they were weekly service attenders. Along with Alaskans, residents of Colorado, Arizona and Northeastern states were the least likely to attend religious services once a week or more. When measured against four indices of religiosity — the importance of religion in people’s lives, frequency of attendance at worship services, frequency of prayer and absolute certainty of belief in God — Mississippi stands out on all four, while several other Southern states also rank very high on the measures. Click on “read more” for the full and interactive graphic.

Side-Note: The reason Michigan is highlighted on the chart above is because it is my home state. I guess we are simply average in the Mitten… Haha.

Florida QB Tim Tebow.

Wonder what you would find if you frisked pro-choice organizations and other liberals?

Answer: They are angry at a “pro-life” Super Bowl advertisement they have not even seen.

Watch the video I posted above to see a few of the weak arguments being made by organizations such as Women’s Media Center. If you didn’t believe it before, you probably do now. The whole fuss over this unseen advertisement clearly proves the intolerance of the self-proclaimed “tolerant” left-wing.

The pro-life group Focus on the Family has shelled out $2 million to have their 30 second advertisement aired during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The advertisement focuses on the mother of Tim Tebow and her story of giving birth to the University of Florida football star.

Personally, I love these types of news stories, because it is political correctness at its finest. It proves just how intolerant and disrespectful some individuals are towards the first amendment of the United States Constitution. Remember: The answer to speech you don’t like is not less speech; it’s more speech.

What’s even more shocking is that Sally Jenkins – a liberal, pro-choice, sports columnist for the Washington Post – is defending the Tebow’s Super Bowl advertisement:

As statements at Super Bowls go, I prefer the idea of Tebow’s pro-life ad to, say, Jim McMahon dropping his pants, as the former Chicago Bears quarterback once did in response to a question. We’re always harping on athletes to be more responsible and engaged in the issues of their day, and less concerned with just cashing checks. It therefore seems more than a little hypocritical to insist on it only if it means criticizing sneaker companies, and to stifle them when they take a stance that might make us uncomfortable.

I’m pro-choice, and Tebow clearly is not. But based on what I’ve heard in the past week, I’ll take his side against the group-think, elitism and condescension of the “National Organization of Fewer and Fewer Women All The Time.” For one thing, Tebow seems smarter than they do.

Tebow’s 30-second ad hasn’t even run yet, but it already has provoked “The National Organization for Women Who Only Think Like Us” to reveal something important about themselves: They aren’t actually “pro-choice” so much as they are pro-abortion. Pam Tebow has a genuine pro-choice story to tell. She got pregnant in 1987, post-Roe v. Wade, and while on a Christian mission in the Philippines, she contracted a tropical ailment. Doctors advised her the pregnancy could be dangerous, but she exercised her freedom of choice and now, 20-some years later, the outcome of that choice is her beauteous Heisman Trophy winner son, a chaste, proselytizing evangelical.

Pam Tebow and her son feel good enough about that choice to want to tell people about it. Only, NOW says they shouldn’t be allowed to. Apparently NOW feels this commercial is an inappropriate message for America to see for 30 seconds, but women in bikinis selling beer is the right one. I would like to meet the genius at NOW who made that decision. On second thought, no, I wouldn’t.

Excellent points made by Ms. Jenkins.

Haha, I swear… Some of the liberals who are running these pro-choice organizations fail to use the head that God placed on their shoulders. If they would have not thrown a fit over this “pro-life” advertisement to begin with, I bet no one would have hardly noticed in the first place. Thanks to their own outrage and anger, the Tebows and Focus on the Family are getting their $2 million worth. At the end of the day, I’m sure the pro-life groups are probably  saying: “Thank you getting so pointlessly riled up.”

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the Michigan-based company Trijicon?

Answer: They put coded references to New Testament Bible passages on some of their high-powered rifle sights.

And of course ABC News blows this story way out of proportion… Starting with the headline U.S. Military Weapons Inscribed With Secret ‘Jesus’ Bible Codes:

Coded references to New Testament Bible passages about Jesus Christ are inscribed on high-powered rifle sights provided to the United States military by a Michigan company, an ABC News investigation has found.

The sights are used by U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and in the training of Iraqi and Afghan soldiers. The maker of the sights, Trijicon, has a $660 million multi-year contract to provide up to 800,000 sights to the Marine Corps, and additional contracts to provide sights to the U.S. Army.

U.S. military rules specifically prohibit the proselytizing of any religion in Iraq or Afghanistan and were drawn up in order to prevent criticism that the U.S. was embarked on a religious “Crusade” in its war against al Qaeda and Iraqi insurgents.

One of the citations on the gun sights, 2COR4:6, is an apparent reference to Second Corinthians 4:6 of the New Testament, which reads: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”

[…]

Trijicon confirmed to ABCNews.com that it adds the biblical codes to the sights sold to the U.S. military. Tom Munson, director of sales and marketing for Trijicon, which is based in Wixom, Michigan, said the inscriptions “have always been there” and said there was nothing wrong or illegal with adding them. Munson said the issue was being raised by a group that is “not Christian.” The company has said the practice began under its founder, Glyn Bindon, a devout Christian from South Africa who was killed in a 2003 plane crash.

Hmm… I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider a scope a weapon. You absolutely have to take things like this with a grain of salt, because liberals have an extreme desire to remove all mentions of anything related to God or religion. Once again, political correctness at its finest.

Side-Note: What is the big deal with taking a Bible verse referring to light on a scope that probably uses ambient light to produce its aiming point?

Terrorist! Where!?

Wonder what you would find if you frisked the political correctness of radical Islamist groups?

Answer: Steven Crowder finds out!

HAHA! What a great video. Steven Crowder brings up a number of good points relating back to political correctness and how our society is afraid to point out things for what they are. Thanks to a radical, liberal administration controlling Washington and the far-left media, we have a country full of Americans who are looked down upon for calling a terrorist a “terrorist” and a war on terrorism – you guessed it – a “war on terrorism.” It’s absolutely absurd! Just look at Google’s recent political correctness mishap that occurred over the weekend:

Apparently Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, and other religions are a lot of things, but what about Islam? I guess Google doesn’t have an opinion on that specific religion, or they’re simply hiding in the shadow of political correctness.

Props to Steven Crowder and PJ TV, because this video/subject definitely needed to be pointed out!
