Face of the FRC

I might have an inkling more respect for religion if it's adherents didn't get so damn imperious about pushing their faith onto everyone.
Working in ancillary medical in the pandemic we're seeing those who are just dying due to insanely stupid convictions, complicating the unholy fuck out of caring for them and others: specifically, objections to removing religious jewelry that has ended tragically. In one case, a patient hid that he was wearing a huge CROSS necklace, even lied to the screening, and the necklace caused facial injuries to the patient and damage to the machine's inner casing as it ripped over his head and projectiled into the machine. Another choker chain had to be cut off of a patient who had an allergic reaction, neck swollen and could have choked herself to death. Again, one who earlier wouldn't remove said necklace "because my faith".
Time and time again I see these religious idiots make total asses of themselves.
