    Re: Bigotry is well and alive even among doctors.

    I'm very skeptical of stories like this. I'd like to know more about the story before I comment fully, but on the face this seems almost unbelievable. I've known any doctor to refuse treatment to anyone for almost any reason. Granted a Pediatrician isn't performing emergency medicine, but still? A lot of the time, these homosexuals have an axe to grind, and purposefully seek out confrontation, but we'll see.

    As far as a Jewish doctor refusing to see someone because he ate bad pork...sure, why not, if another doctor can see the person and the patient gets the care he needs? As far as a Democratic doctor refusing to treat a uber right wing conservative politician he abhors, sure, why not, as long as there is another doctor who can see the patient and he gets the care he needs? Do we pick doctors based on their personal lifestyle choices, or do we pick them to take care of us?
    You don't know if another doctor can or will see the patient though. Allowing such discrimination allows all doctors to refuse to see patients for those reasons.

    Another doctor did see the patient, and she knew that her partner was seeing the patient.

    She wrote the apology weeks/months later, after the parents started telling others of her actions, from what I understood in the article.

    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 isn't a Christian religion that opposes gay marriage?

    No, not at all. If anything I am completely against such things. I do however expect people who freely take on the responsibility to serve others to do so.

    Yeah, that's not news. This one is not cold and uncaring, though. She comes off as an emotional basket case and I for one would remove any child of mine from her care at once. How would you feel about some pilot who decided he can't possibly fly the plane because there's a fag baby on board? Would you be comfortable flying with this loon ever again? I sure as hell wouldn't.
