The human/business interest article in the Aug. 19 Frederick News-Post on Cornerstone Physical Therapy is incomplete. Owner/therapist J.R. Bucklin prides his practice on its being Christian-based. The description of the standards of his therapy can also be claimed by secular therapists. It would have been helpful if News-Post writer CJ Fairfield had made it clear how Christian therapy differs from secular therapy. Should I assume that Bucklin opens his sessions with Christian prayer? Are Bible references part of his therapy? Are non-Christians accepted as clients of a Christian-based medical practice?

It also would be nice to know what kind of Christian-based PT is used. Catholics might not want Southern Baptist PT and vice versa. Or if you’re Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1879, you definitely want to avoid the heretical Northern Conservative Baptist Great Lakes Region Council of 1912 PT.

I agree that the FNP interview was sadly lacking.


Reaching back for the old Emo Phillips routine! [thumbup][beam]

Another great Emo joke: When I was a kid I prayed every day for a bicycle. Then I learned that prayers don’t work like that. So I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.


Dunno why they deleted your original post about Emo, public. It's a classic routine, and Emo's stuff took some thought to understand.


I was just wondering that too. I suspect a snowflake was getting drippy.
