    However, had this been a case of a non-Christian denying services to a heterosexual couple, this story would not see the light of day anywhere. Only the fact they are lesbian and she is Christian make it noteworthy....leaving the impression that liberals want lesbians and gays treated differently which is, I am sure, not what most want
    This is false, I dont assume she is a Christian, I am one and Christianity has nothing to do with this in reality, if this woman claims it does she is dishonest.
    secondly she did in fact reject the couple/child based on thier sexual orientation (what ever she claims it to be) and her own religion. She admitted that.
    lastly your example is not analogous unless you can provide the (in some cases) illegal discrimination. But i do agree denying service in general is not a story but bigotry often is.

    There's a difference between criticizing someone for what they do, and refusing the care for a newborn baby because of who its' parents are

    Because if it might effect her, it should not be allowed.

    Otherwise, screw everyone else.

    I draw the line at emergency treatment. A physician should not deny emergency treatment to anyone. If a physician didn't want to treat me because they don't feel comfortable around men, that is their business, but if they don't treat me in an emergency, I would be pissed at that.
    IOW, it's OK to force a doctor to do something against their beliefs, but only when you think it's OK.

    But it's wrong for others to do so if they disagree with you.

    Re: Bigotry is well and alive even among doctors.

    I do have news for some of you all. All doctors are not nice people. All of them don't care much about their patients. Many of them are cold uncaring individuals that are in it for the money only.
    As a matter of fact, most doctors are pretty much jerk offs that spent alittle longer in college than most.

    So how did it happen to you. Did you have to marry a gay guy, had to participate in gay sex, had to at least watch it? Did you have to give them money, just how exactly were you forced in any way to do anything? And how is your life and your marriage affected in any way?

    Just because there is no "direct effect". Does not mean I don't have an opinion. How does murder affect you? If not at all, then it should be legal, right?

    Yes, because she is a bigot. You seem to be fine with that.
