    But as I said, totally different issue there than this.
    How is it different? Its exactly the same behavior, putting personal BS over the professional standards of a doctor.

    Because not treating gay patients is not equivalent to making a political statement against Obama and his supporters. Period.

    And as I said, it's well within the doctor's right to not take gay patients.

    So putting up a sign saying he won't treat Obama supporters is different than putting a sign saying he won't treat gay people how?


    And as I said, it's well within the doctor's right to not take gay patients.
    And its within my rights to call him a scumbag for it as well. Even if his speech is protected, and even if the AMA doesn't have a problem with is behavior, that doesn't give him a immunity to criticism for it either.

    Does that include GWB?

    Do YOU think Bush was a good president? Do you agree with what the polls will say about that too?

    Just curious.

    Look, if you vote for someone that is going to do negative things to another person, they have every right in the world to attempt to punish you for your behavior, if it is unwarranted.

    Choices have consequences and to tell you the truth I wish this happened more often.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Grow up.
    I wouldn't use a liberal doctor for my healthcare who had posted something similar about Bush < or name your conservative >. I think it is unprofessional to bring up the subject of politics in a contentious way with your clients/patients to begin with. It is even moreso to pretend that you want those who disagree with you to 'go away' (in a professional setting). If the Doctor doesn't know this, he is the one who needs to 'Grow up', along with all of his supporters here and elsewhere.

    I can't imagine letting someone known to be so completely clueless be my doctor, whether he said it about a liberal politician or conservative.

    I know that you read his point of view and arrived in some convoluted manner at the wrong conclusion.

    He actually said he would not turn anyone away.


    I have no problem with any person pointing out their Political preference, after all in the USA one is supposedly freely permitted to express their view.

    I suppose this must depend on whether they agree with the type of Politics you espouse.
