Forced To Endure

The general public seems to imagine that pain can always be controlled, so it is reasonable to force people to stay alive to conform with Christian values.

In my experience even the strongest pain killers do nothing for an infected tooth. Morphine has no effect at all on kidney stones. Medicine can do nothing for the pain of gallstones, but thankfully they can remove your gall bladder. It can do nothing for back pain once your discs are worn down.

Think of your own experiences with pain and having to live with equivalent level pain week after week. That is torture. Christians have no right to force their beliefs on non-Christians.
