Is Church Bad For You?
No, of course not. But it makes for a good title.
Any Sunday in the ER there are always a couple of people that come in from church. Today, though, I saw FOURTEEN people who came in after getting sick at church. Two of them were preachers. It was really strange. Maybe God took the day off?
They ranged from the simple, "I got chest pain in church" to " I passed out in church" to "Grandma slumped over and couldn't move her left side during church and has been drooling since."
Most seem to come from Catholic church. I think it is from all the standing and kneeling. I heard that's what they do there. The Pentecostals come in a lot b/c of the emotional experience they tend to have at church. I am surprised we don't get more Muslims from all of their bowing when praying. I guess they are in better shape since they do it 5 times a day.
In summary, there were a lot of freaking sick people in church today. Be careful next time you go. I hope I didn't offend anyone too much. OK, that's a lie b/c I don't give a shit. Its my blog and I think its funny. Probably b/c I haven't been to church in a while and my conscious has gone missing. My mom would be so disappointed in my right now I hope she doesn't read this one
