Methodist Medicine Religion

Posted on July 14, 2009, under general.

In a very short period of time, the president is going to sign into law Ireland’s new blasphemy legislation – making offending the superstitious worthy of a fine. Forget all of the offence this itself is causing, we should see it as an opportunity. So, I’d like to announce a new religion; the Methodist Medicine Religion (MMR, for short).

Broadly speaking, we fully agree with the methods of modern evidence-based medicine – but for pragmatic reasons – completely disagree with the supposed mechanisms of efficacy. Biochemical explanations are in fact a sleight of hand maintained by God, to test our faith in the truth; energy fields and planetary motions.

Despite the plain evidence, and the obviously benign intentions of God, that MMR is effective and safe, there is a disturbing trend of naysayers who cast doubt upon our religion. This dubious form of speech is manifestly a danger that deserves to be regulated. Such doubts cause real disease, sterility and death, but naturally our objection is merely on the grounds that it offends us, a more serious problem. Who’s with me?

I’m right with you! Do us first apostles get some neat titles?
