From somewhere out in The Twilight Zone

One of the strangest posts I have read in a long time:


Some pharmacists in the United States are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control pills since birth control is against their religion. In certain (red)* states, lawmakers are working to protect these pharmacists from losing their jobs! I want to become a pharmacist...and a Christian Scientist! Christian Scientists don't believe in modern medicine, meaning no prescriptions for anyone! It would be wonderful to get paid to do a job that you refuse to do and then not get fired for not doing the job that you are getting paid to do! Where do I sign up? Now, if only I could find someone dumb enough to put me in charge of a gaggle of drugs...

*I am unsure why "(red)" preceded states, since the religion that is against birth control are the Catholics, and since most Catholics are Democrats, why in the heck would the lawmakers in Republican-held red states care whether or not those who refused to fill birth control prescriptions because birth control was against their religion got fired. After all, it is unlikely they would lose any votes if they did nothing at all to stop the firings. As such, I find the reference to be illogical. Mr. Spock signing off.
