So I came out to my family as an atheist today. I gave them a list of over 100 evil bible quotes from pedophillia, to catching animals on fire, to dashing babies against the rocks. They said I was the crazy one, threw a tempertantrum and I said I didn't want to talk about it. So they grabbed my neck, threw me in the car and drove to a Christian hospital. They lied and said I was doing all these horrible things like robbing animals and raping random people (Cough Cough... God did those things in Matthew 21:1-3 and Deuteronomy 22:28-29). Anyway, Then they said they would forgive me if I said I accepted Jesus as my lord and savior. So I did, and they said I didn't "feel" like it. So I was stuck in a straight jacket for three hours for something I didn't do. And I had to say the Lord's Prayer three times and quote my favorite scripture to prove I was Christian. I quoted Numbers 31:17-18 where God's people killed the men and kept the women and children as sex slaves, and one of the hospital managers slapped me. In the end I faked to get out and my parents said it was a tiny mistake and it would be better since I am a "Christian" now. Good thing I have my shoe laces now.

I'm gonna start Googling Christian Hospitals in my area so that I can avoid them, I wouldn't want the hospital manager slapping me.  :unsure:

You were released that quickly?

With a situation like this, have you considered contacting social services?

Well, the the hospital manager slapped, MatureMcLeod! They didn't want him/her there, 'contaminating' the other patients with all this atheist nonsense! I already suggested what you suggested, but I think it's time to call the FBI, the DEA, the CIA, and the INTERPOL! Heck, I would even call Father Lankester Merrin, the elderly priest and archaeologist from the movie, The Exorcist. Just in case, he/she should also invite the young priest, Father/Dr. Damien Karras S.J., sure, he is just a troubled priest, vocational counselor, and psychiatrist, but right now, MatureMcLeod should be getting all the help he/she can get!  :-\

Uh, is this true?  I don't know a place in the USA where someone would be put in a straight jacket under these circumstances.  Where did this happen?

Yeah... If this is accurate, this place should be reported and investigated. There are a lot of things here that don't sound legal at all.

I'm not at all convinced this is legit, but I await a response from the poster.

Yes, it's an intriguing account.  :)

An intriguing account? Meh.
I still think Pahu has the most intriguing account, so far.

To a dirtier mind...Yes. My mind is not that dirty, yet. I don't think I would enjoy getting slapped by hospital manager...I'm sure some would, I don't know...that would be kinky. I think that's the way a porno movie would start. Yes? :eyebrow:

Now, "hmmmm" can mean everything from disdain through unbelief and consideration to utter delight.

Wonder which "hmmmm" that was?  ;D
