Xtains gone wild


Christian pediatrician denies child service because parents are tattooed

Can there be a bigger jackass than Dr. Gary Merrill? :

...A family is turned away by a local pediatrician, they say because of the way they look...The doctor said he is just following his beliefs, creating a Christian atmosphere for his patients...Tasha Childress said it’s discrimination...Dr. Gary Merrill wouldn’t treat her daughter for an ear infection because Tasha, the mother, has tattoos...

Just one more reason why I'll never will go to Texas.

The pic above is from Sacred Ink. Check them out for a great discussion of tattoos and how they relate to the Xtain bible.

What?!?! Wow some "Christian"! Whatever happened to "Judge not, lest ye be judged"??? (Matthew 7, King James Bible)
Would Jesus turn someone away because of something so superficial --or for ANY reason for that matter?
What a bloody hypocritical glass house doctor, a truly Ugly Ugly Ugly man.

Good points. Who would Jesus refuse to treat? Maybe the Doc does unnecessary hysterectomies in his spare time.

Aye, th'Xstain Doc must have taken th'Hypocrittic Oath instead o' th'other one most physicks swear to.

Yup Cap'n, that saw-bones should be keelhauled.
