Real Anti-Christian Behavior
It’s hard to argue that it’s not Christians themselves who are doing the most damage to Christianity in this country. From today’s Washington Post:
More than a dozen states are considering new laws to protect health workers who do not want to provide care that conflicts with their personal beliefs, a surge of legislation that reflects the intensifying tension between asserting individual religious values and defending patients’ rights.
About half of the proposals would shield pharmacists who refuse to fill prescriptions for birth control and “morning-after” pills because they believe the drugs cause abortions. But many are far broader measures that would shelter a doctor, nurse, aide, technician or other employee who objects to any therapy. That might include in-vitro fertilization, physician-assisted suicide, embryonic stem cells and perhaps even providing treatment to gays and lesbians.
Because many legislatures have just convened, advocates on both sides are predicting that the number debating such proposals will increase. At least 18 states are already considering 36 bills.
The Stranger is often accused of being anti-Christian. We’re notówe’re just anti batshitcrazy Christians who assume their beliefs trump the health and freedoms of others.
