With increasing frequency, we are seeing individuals and institutions claiming a right to discriminate – by refusing to provide services to women and LGBT people – based on religious objections. The discrimination takes many forms, including:

  • Religiously affiliated schools firing women because they became pregnant while not married;
  • Business owners refusing to provide insurance coverage for contraception for their employees;
  • Graduate students, training to be social workers, refusing to counsel gay people;
  • Pharmacies turning away women seeking to fill birth control prescriptions;
  • Bridal salons, photo studios, and reception halls closing their doors to same-sex couples planning their weddings. ...

Your thoughts . . .

Unfortunately, it's a rollback to the 50s, when discrimination was almost mandatory. Thing is, there's more out in the open these days, such as the discussion of birth control and same-sex relationships. It's hard for some people not to discriminate against things that were kept under wraps for so long.

No, I don't condone the actions, but using religion to advance their own agendas/prejudices is a cop-out. Either admit the bigotry or learn to live with the 'new world'.

Nationalism of any kind is dangerous. Religious nationalism is doubly-so. The Founding Fathers must be having kittens by now.

"Pharmacies turning away women seeking to fill birth control prescriptions"

Prescribed from a Doctor I doubt any of us have seen that.

The rest are privately owned. Go somewhere else.

While you personally may have not seen it, it does take place . . .
