WASHINGTON (CNN) – Reports of pharmacists with particular religious and moral beliefs denying prescriptions for birth control have prompted legislation that would ensure all prescriptions are filled.

…It would allow a pharmacist to refuse to fill a prescription only if the prescription can be passed to and filled by a co-worker at the same pharmacy.</i>

Ok, I generally don’t remark on “matters of faith” on TTP, but for this, I’ll make an exception. Here it is:

If you won’t do the job, then find another line of work. Take your intrusive beliefs, your “my way or the highway” BS and crawl back into the dimly lit cave of smug morality. Because you are a stain on faith.
