Gellin and Infidellin,

Thanks so much for the article. I found it fascinating. It just leaves me wondering what we can do where some in the Muslim community are concerned. It seems we're damned if we do and damned if we don't.

The man felt violated by people who administered mouth to mouth? Would he have preferred to die? It would seem so. Do we remain true to our own beliefs or ignore a man who is in pain because he might be offended by our help? Maybe Muslims who feel as he does need to wear medic-alert bracelets telling us what type of help they will accept, in order to avoid such episodes in the future. After all, we don't want to contaminate them.
