[1788 - New York votes to ratify the US Constitution;
becomes the eleventh state]
[1908 - Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is
founded by U.S. Attorney General Bonaparte]
[1948 - President Harry Truman issues Executive Order No. 9981, desegregating the Armed Services]
According to a survey published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, (July 2005 issue), fifty-five percent of doctors say their religious beliefs influence how they practice medicine. This news should concern us, whatever our religious persuasion. If one is seeking spiritual advice it matters little that a potential advisor has medical training. Similarly, if one requires the services of a neurosurgeon, one hopes that the doctor would leave his religious beliefs at home, and instead bring to the operating theater all his skill and knowledge of medical science, unencumbered by personal religious convictions.
