If We Were All Atheists, the Nursing Shortage Would be Far Worse

There are few atheists serving the sick and wounded in our hospitals today.

“Although a Jew, I have acquired tremendous respect for Christianity over the years. For example, it seems every second nurse I meet chose that difficult, undervalued profession in order to serve Christ. So I think the atheists, agnostics, Moslems, Buddhists, and Jews should be most thankful for the Christians in our society or today’s nursing shortage would be far worse.”
