Not treating an emergency room patient because you do not like their religion is evil

I don't have time to read this, but I'm thinking: must be some fringe religion. Any religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ would never dream of doing such evil...

As the parent of a trans child, I am very proud of our County and State for standing against this discriminatory ruling. It is unfathomable to me that our Justice Department is supporting it. Please, let's all stand together against any form of discrimination.

In terms of healthcare, there is no room for discrimination based on religious grounds.

On the other hand and in reference to that baker who refused to sell a lesbian couple a wedding cake, he shouldn't have been prosecuted for that.

Don't retail food establishments have the right to refuse service? And besides, it was just a wedding cake. No big deal.

If I was the baker with those particular sentiments, I would have baked them their cake to make money off the transaction but refused to put the little plastic lesbian couple figurines atop the cake...they could do that themselves.
