    I can't answer the hypothetical about the pharmacist filling birth control pills. I guess we'll see when it happens.
    It is a real situation that actually exists though, where a particular pharmacy, perhaps the biggest and most popular pharmacy in the area, hell, maybe even the only pharmacy in the area, may have one person who can deny anyone birth control. It isn't like this hasn't happened before, there are tons of cases where pharmacists have done just that. So how should this be handled?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think you need to ask the pharmacy?

    It isn't up to the pharmacy, they'll get sued if they fire the pharmacist for religious discrimination. So what policy do we set nationwide to handle these situations?

    We have a tie - Christians who refuse an SSM couple a Marriage license and Muslims who refuse to issue a liquor license. Odd results eh?

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    All of 'em.

    Don't go into the public sector if you can't deal with the fact that some people live differently from you. You are paid by the general public. If you're not too good to take their money in your paycheck every month, then you're not too good to do the job they request of you.

    The one that acted individually without orders from a superior and is allowed to be fired without endangering the department for reprisals under Affirmative Action or messing up the departments Affirmative Action quotas.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    Works for me. If marriage meant so much to people, that license wouldnt matter anyway.

    Just like it hasnt for gay couples for decades.

    No clue. I would worry about someone maybe possibly not getting birth control at a random Walmart pharmacy if it was important, but in the grand scheme of things I can worry about, it ranks slightly below getting herpes from a toilet seat.
