To which I answered, are you nuts? I did my research; the doctor is 53 years old and has over a 98 percent success rate on over 10,000 cataract surgeries, along with the hospital and surgery staff assisting. Then, I say, I would need faith, however, to let you do the operation, being a fundamentalist minister and all. chawinwords

The religious are not immune from making mistakes with their own words. Perhaps your friend really did mean faith, but I think in the scenario you described, many religious really mean trust, not faith. Good reply though!
