Life Line Screening

It's just not a good day for the religion stuff.

I got a flyer in the mail for "Life Line Screening" to be held at the Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Columbus.

Now, I'm sorry, but medicine and religion should not be mixing. And studies have shown that going in for health screenings when you are having no symptoms is more likely to generate false positives than it is to save your life. This is just plain fearmongering. What the hell is wrong with this culture?

They even used a font on the envelope to try to make it look handwritten. It's a total scam to profit from gullible old people.
