"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

A doctor there (an internist -- not a psychiatrist or psychologist) contacted Adult Protective Services because Fink wanted to go home and not to rehab.

Fink was then placed in the psychiatric unit of the hospital. 
This brings to mind what happened when my mother had hip replacement surgery. After her release from the hospital she, of course, needed physical therapy. Because she lives alone, I told the hospital social worker that she'd be staying with Mr. M and me and we'd get her to whatever therapy sessions she needed. Next thing I know, a few days later, the social worker insisted that I told her my mother wasn't coming home with us and therefore the social worker was making arrangements to put her in a nursing home. I practically screamed at her, "That's not what I said! I said she'd be staying with us!"

I guess they hear whatever they choose to hear.

They think they know more about a patient than someone who knew him most of his life. I prefer a nursing home to a hospital for an elderly sick person in many cases. I have seen many elderly patients leave nursing homes after TLC and therapy.

Oh, this is reassuring with upcoming procedures.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

If he had said he was an illegal alien they wouldn't have turned him in.  Another advantage under the Obama administration. :whistle:

This is what CPS in Texas did to my niece after she had her baby and a OBGYN decided because she suffered from extreme morning sickeness the entire pregnancy (runs in our family like Duchess Kate) she had mental problems and was not safe to care for her newborn baby after she refused to eat a roast beef sandwich immediately after giving birth (she is a vegetarian)..... he called in CPS and it took a year for her to be allowed to be alone with CJ............ either her husband or mother-in-law had to be present at all times or the state of Texas was goign to take the baby.   CPS bullied them like the family in MA and said if they went to the media the baby would be removed from the home permanently... finally her husband, who is a business owner in town, went to their local senator who he knew personally and the senator got involved and then and only then did CPS back off...   they never had a second child because this experience was so traumatic for the family.
