(CBS News)   A pharmacist who refused to fill orders for 'morning after pill' citing religious objection is well within his rights, according to a jury. I wonder what would happen if I didn't do my job, and hid behind religion?   (cbsnews.com) divider line

If you have a religious objection to this:

And can the tech now be fired from his job for not being able to perform a required function of the job?

Time to  stop cuddling religious nutjobs that hold a professional license. The nutter demonstrated a lack of professional ethics and bad character that requires stripping him of a professional license

I say its time to treat them like any other business. Tax and regulate.

That article sucks: The jury on Friday found, however, that discrimination based on her sex had not occurred. But Badeaux and the pharmacy did cause Anderson emotional harm in the amount of $25,000.

So, did the jury decide to award her $25,000? Or was that just an argument in court?

So you can use your job in healthcare to directly cause harm to people, for the crime of not adhering to your personal faith? So if I'm a devout believer working as a doctor, can I murder atheist patients for their blasphemy against god? I guess in Minnesota one had best be wary of religious fundamentalist folks who want to bring God's savage wrath down on their unsuspecting patients.

Minnesota is just another Texas, although while we have the Baptists, they have militant Lutherans running the show

Could a Baptist cashier refuse to sell liquor at the grocery store without losing their job?

Remember when a (false) story came out a few years ago about a Muslim cashier who refused to ring up bacon and told the customer that he had to wait in another line for a different casher and Republicans completely and totally lost their shiat over it?

If your religion prevents you from doing your job, it's time to switch careers.

The Republicans are willing to believe in anything, even if they know iits not true, if it reinforces their hate and bigotry

PertpetualLurker: Could a Baptist cashier refuse to sell liquor at the grocery store without losing their job?


As someone who used to work in a liquor store, technically yes.

However, they tend not to apply and don't make it through the interview if they do.

PertpetualLurker: Could a Baptist cashier refuse to sell liquor at the grocery store without losing their job?


Actually, yes, I know at Walmart  (i am a former employee )if a person were to feel uncomfortable selling a pregnant woman a bottle of wine, policy is that the cashier can refuse the sell and there can be no repercussions from management

That would certainly create a supply chain issue.

If your faith precludes you from doing the job you have, perhaps you should find a job that is more compatible with your faith instead of demanding that everyone else cater to your faith.  Naaaaaaaaaa..... that's not the American way at all!

I'm not sure if this is a good faith question or not; but the answer is no.

The law recognizes a difference between refusing to do something, and doing something.

There are still lots of cases where refusing to do something could be criminal...but they all involve a really high bar of negligence. So you could refuse to perform a surgery on someone, but you can't decide on the middle of surgery to stop performing surgery... because not finishing is likely to be very very dangerous.

Plan B and similar are not seen as immediately life threatening so there is no obligation on the part of medical professionals. So they can refuse to sell, in the same way I can refuse to do some allergy if my job tomorrow.

They might get fired if that violates the company's policies, and they might lose customers, but it isn't criminal. They could even risk losing they license, depending on the exact situation, but it's almost certainty not criminal.

But murdering someone is.

I'm not saying it's how it should be, but that's how it is.

We should have a little less freedom OF religion in this country and whole lot more freedom FROM religion.
 
2022-08-05 9:06:01 PM  
I know who you're talking about, Subby! He was that guy in the corner. Now he's in the spotlight. He's been trying to keep up with you, and we don't know if he can do it. He's said too much; but then again, maybe he hasn't said enough? Have a little sympathy for the guy.

Living in a neighborhood with a large Somali population, I can tell you the Muslim cashiers would just put on a pair of disposable gloves when they needed to handle haram items.
