Science Deniers Try to Take Over a Sarasota Public Hospital

    Conservatives skeptical of covid vaccines battle to lead a hospital (yahoo.com)

    Some of the views of the four "conservative Christian patriots" who are trying to take over the board of the Sarasota Hospital--up until now ranked as the sixth best in Florida.

    If this hospital fell into the hands of these renegades, would they even qualify for accreditation? Would insurers pay for patients' stays there? Would they decline to provide some services they are legally, as a public hospital, required to provide?

    Monkey pox is real, albeit less contagious than our current pandemic.
    The COVID vaccine is not government's attempt to "own your body."
    An assault weapon by any other name is still a weapon that should not be available to private citizens.

    Monkeypox is another plague that targets mainly homosexuals. Vaccines should never be mandatory. And for the final time, there's no such thing as an "assault rifle."

    Also, we should add to your list that abortion is murder.

    The article fails to support the title of this thread.

    Didn't you know? Unless you view the COVID vaccines as a unilateral, required, magical elixir that is the first medical intervention in history without a single downside, then you are a "science denier". At least around here.

    Honestly, the basic problem with all of these positions is that they require ABSOLUTELY NO demonstration of knowledge of what you are leading.
    Don't put a scientist in charge of the FDA or EPA. Don't put a doctor, or anyone with deep medical training and medical knowledge in charge of a hospital. But a [whisp of air and breathy voice] "business man", well they know enough about everything because they can run a business. And if there's one thing I know about running a business, it's that, if you've ran one business, you've run them all. Who cares if you don't have the first clue of what C++ means, that doesn't mean you should not be CEO of google!
    You....are a BUSINESS MAN, you are held in the highest esteem.

    I am sure the self described conservative Christian patriots would agree with you.
    I am also concerned that women who miscarry might be given a hard time in such a hospital by personnel directed to look for signs of a self-induced miscarriage even when none exist.
    If, for example, an addict miscarried, would she be deemed to he guilty of child neglect? Sadly, an addict can't just turn off an addiction on command. In a hospital run by zealots, a pregnant woman who jogged or didn't seek medical attention quickly enough *(although uninsured) could be a target. I am repeating actual concerns of younger women, not spinning my wheels.

    But what if not providing an abortion is murder.

    Are any of you knowledgeable about hospital administration? Because that's what the position entails.

    The Bible teaches us all we need about running a hospital.

    It targets the promiscuous. The more partners you have the greater chance you have to catch. How much do you think it ‘plagues’ lesbians?

    I am sure medical ethicists use the Bible and other theological and philosophical works in their training and decision making, but the business and medical personnel need extensive education in their 21st century disciplines.

    As a rule, the more someone denounces sin & corruption, the more
    you know it's about their own issues.

    What Fantine left out is no where does this say "Science Deniers Try to Take Over a Sarasota Public Hospital".

    What was written "Conservatives skeptical of covid vaccines battle to lead a hospital". Its what Tim wrote from WP.

    Why add this to something Tim never said nor Rohe. If its not true what is it then?

    If they want to take over the board they will have final control over every major decision, personnel included.

    When Rohe said vaccine mandates were government's attempt to own your body that was conspiracy theory, not science.

    The definition if assault is "a physical attack." Is the weapon for target practice? Hunting? No. Its purpose is physical attack. Almost every major school shooting was committed with an AR-15.
    Is he trying to pretend people own them to march in parades?

    In other words, science deniers. Or do you believe all the studies on the efficacy of the vaccine are not science?

    Artistic license, I think would apply here.
    In order to “steer” a discussion, a reinterpretation of the facts can set the “mood”.

    I will have to check this person out but dollars-to-doughnuts, they’re “prolife”.

    Is there a problem having a President of the United States in charge of the military when he has never even been a boy scout?
