I read in the news recently that Augusta’s Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center banned religious carols.
“Military service veterans, male and female, represent people of all faiths,” hospital spokesman Brian Rothwell said in a statement, according to the Athens-Banner Herald. “It is out of respect for every faith that the Veterans Administration gives clear guidance on what ‘spiritual care’ is to be given and who is to give it.”
I’m willing to bet that if U.S. Rep. Charlie Norwood were alive, he would have the administrator responsible for this emptying bedpans before the sun went down. Mr. Norwood surely would not allow him to be in any administrative capacity after enforcing such a stupid, hateful policy.
My guess is that Mr. Rothwell is not from around these parts. No one from around here could be that disrespectful and hateful.
