I hate to say I agree with it, but I do. At the very least, hospital employees and doctors should certainly be healthy and set a good example for their patients.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Allow me to rephrase your question.

Should an employer have the right to refuse to hire someone that he feels will not be able to do the job.

BMI- normal vs. ~35.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Note that the normal range for BMI is 18.5-25.

It's a little hard to take someone seriously if they tell you to quit smoking but you just saw them outside taking a cig break, or telling you you need to lose weight when they weigh more than you do.

Bones makes a very valid point.

I am a Christian. Some people have told me that they like John Hagee

When I saw him(this picture is rather flattening. He's on the left, BTW.), my reaction was praise the Lard and pass the cinnamon roles. How am I supposed to believe that he is worried about my soul when he is eating his sole with several extra helping of Hollandaise sauce? And potatoes au gratin. With a side of Berman chocolate cake.

I will admit that my attitude is not terribly Christian, but that was my reaction.
