Today in Schadenfreude

The heads of Christian wing nuts right across the country must be exploding after the decision of a California Supreme Court that says that doctors cannot refuse to treat homosexuals because of their religious beliefs. Now I am sure that there will be those who say that this is a violation of their religious freedom but I wholeheartedly disagree. When one chooses a career of service one cannot pick who one will treat based on one's selective reading of a religious text. If homosexuality (or blacks or women or left handers) so offend you one simply needs to find an alternative career. After all I don't think you will find many Quakers pursuing careers as atomic weapons technicians or scientists, now will you?
