Wow... Someone totally missed the point of that one!
11/21/2008 11:37:38 PM
Strange. It's almost like the point was to help religions other than Christianity. There's no way that could possibly be true.
11/21/2008 11:37:58 PM
Yes of course,
that is something you fundies often forget,
i.e. that such laws might be used as well to help other religions aside from christianity ;)
11/21/2008 11:43:08 PM
Someone's catching on...
11/21/2008 11:43:10 PM
a mind far far away
Oh no?! Other religions other than christianity? Oh my fucking god! Even though the constitution gives rights to anyone of any religion, we can't have any of that non-christian fucking non-sense. There can't be anyone other than christians in this country. That would mean the Constitution is right, and we'd have to overthrow it. Whatever shall we do? Other religions having rights? That's not a christian thing.
11/21/2008 11:43:52 PM
That's the sound of you missing the point.
11/21/2008 11:47:14 PM
You mean an anti-discrimination law would allow people of many religions not to be discriminated against? Inconceivable!
11/21/2008 11:48:20 PM
Yes, promoting religion is a double edged sword, isn't it? Think of how much easier it would be if you made it clear you weren't religious, just had a personal relationship with Jesus. Think of all the taxes that churches would pay! Think of the roads that could be fixed, schools built, and hospitals improved, with that money. It's a win-win.
11/21/2008 11:48:57 PM
I thought that Bush was FOR religious discrimination at pharmacies. I'm very confused.
11/21/2008 11:50:06 PM
Yeah seriously, was Bush just pressured into doing this by someone intelligent? A secular move is not something I'd have expected the buttfucker to make.
11/22/2008 12:00:05 AM
I'd say "WOW", but considering it's from RR, it's nothing new.
11/22/2008 12:05:15 AM
@ #826002 and #826017: The quote isn't worded very well, but the ultimate intention of this new proposed law is to prevent the firing of employees who refuse to distribute birth control, the morning-after pill, etc. The problem is that this applies to institutions like Planned Parenthood, too. So, theoretically, someone could get a job at PP, then refuse to do things that job entails (give out BC advice, consultations on abortions) based on their religious beliefs, and not get fired. It's really just another stab at reproductive rights in disguise.
ETA: Obama has promised to repeal this stupid order if Bush manages to squeeze it through in his last couple months, but it could take a while (3-6 months).

How the hell is it "discrimination" to require someone to DO THEIR DAMN JOB?! If you have moral objections to -ANY- pharmaceuticals, well, YOU SHOULDN'T BE A PHARMACIST!
11/22/2008 1:03:21 AM
I completely agree. What?
Have moral objections to abortions? DON'T WORK IN WOMEN'S HEALTH.
11/22/2008 1:24:02 AM
#826017, I take offense at your calling Bush a "buttfucker." I don't think he would know how to find the anus.
11/22/2008 1:34:39 AM
The "Provider Conscience Regulation" kinda reminds me of the "gag rule" enacted under President Reagan. It comes straight out of an Executive Order, bypassing Congress entirely.
11/22/2008 1:40:35 AM
Waaah, nobody's religion should count except for MINE!
I hope Howdy is denied service by a Muslim cabbie because he's got a dog or a whole ham or something.
11/22/2008 1:57:42 AM
Yep, the Muslim pharmacist can now refuse to serve you because you have uncovered arms.
The Hindu pharmacist can now refuse to give you bovine based insulin.
Fun, ain't it.
11/22/2008 2:09:23 AM
(a) You don't understand the intent of the law.
(b) In theory, yes, it could bite you in the ass.
(c) The executive order is not likely to remain in effect long.
(d) It was irresponsible of your parents not to inform you that there are other religions.
11/22/2008 2:38:14 AM
Bush meets with Obama and gets a brain. News at eleven.
Wouldn't that be nice.
11/22/2008 2:44:56 AM
@ tracer -- how can he NOT find it? His HEAD is up his ass!
11/22/2008 2:51:27 AM
LOL.. you may actually start understanding secularism soon.. I wont hold my breath waiting though.
11/22/2008 2:53:09 AM
LOL..Bush couldnt find his ass with a funnel
11/22/2008 2:54:48 AM
Damn this is an idiotic idea and another attack on our nation's heatlth system by it's worst enemy since polio. What Presidunce Bush has done is create a problem for anyone living in a small town with one pharmacy that might be run by a fundie nutcase. He can refuse to fill any prescription he wants(birth control, morning after) or carry condoms because of his "religious beliefs" making you drive 20 miles to the nearest real pharmacy.
11/22/2008 2:59:01 AM
Sooooo... he's glad there will be no religious discrimination, yet worried that there will be no... discrimination?
