In all fairness, son had not had his first dialysis treatment and was feeling horrible.
He was visited by the hospital chaplain. My son explained that he was an atheist, and had no interest in religion. The chaplain tried again: "Well, we can just talk. . ." Son replied, "Only if it's not about religion."
The chaplain finally wished son a pleasant day and left.
Son said, plaintively, "Mom, I really don't feel good. Do I have to put up with chaplains when I'm an atheist?" I replied, "No, son, you don't."
I spoke to the caseworker and asked her to ban chaplains from son's room. It was done.
