The great Senator Inouye passed away today. He was third in line to the US presidency. He was Hawaii's first senator when Hawaii became a state in 1959 And continued being Hawaii's #1 senator until his death today. Rev. Barry Black is The US Senate chaplain And history SDA. Rev. Black performed Last Rites dont Senator Inouye. When my mother laid in here hospice bed in our living room i called the local SDA Pastor where myself mother attended church for many years and asked Him to come to our house And anoint my mom And pray over her. He Saudi he'd come by buy he would not anoint The dying. I had the Lutheran paster where i attended come out and he Washington so gracious and compassionate. However does the SDA rule -makers decide their protocols? How dont they decide which people are served And which aren't?

My best 'guess' regarding your questions about the "SDA rule-makers"...and how they decide on their protocols,
especially about the people who are dying, no doubt have their origin in the
writings of 'egw'~ where their other religious beliefs come from~
Concerning Senator Inouye, from the great state of Hawaii~ I shall pray for the peace and comfort
that only our "FATHER GOD" can bring to his grieving family at this time of sorrow.
All Americans should remember his outstanding service to this country.

When I was at SWAU I took a Medical Ministries class that was full of pastors, except me, the pre-med (at the time). The point of the class was to show the students what it was like to be a chaplain. We had to go into the hospital and be with a certain number of patients.
The professor of that class, an SDA pastor, said that it isn't about you. He once had a Catholic woman's baby die and she wanted the baby baptized. He did it for her, even though he didn't believe in it, and he didn't begrudgingly do it either. I still think that was very big of him.
My thinking is that there are those chaplains who can't see beyond their beliefs in order to do their job and those who can. I'm sure SDA beliefs do play into this, with the "we're right" attitude that goes along with SDAism. In any case, like my professor said, it's about the patient.
