If these sorts of things don't horrify you...then I'm not sure I can ever wrap my brain around your way of thinking.

I cannot see this sort of thing as anything but a way for petty people to make themselves feel good by controlling other people, at the expense of those other people. If that's not firmly into evil, I'm not sure what is.

This sort of thing is why I worry about religious power, particularly the self-righteous variety.

Just for your information, there is an article in the Kansas City that, although it is not about the above story, does say that Wal-Mart in a number of stores (ie not all of them) do not carry emergency "morning after" pills. This means that if a woman is raped, she will have to drive to THE NEXT TOWN or more to get her perscription filled. Here's the URL: (warning, registration required)

So functionally, this story is possible. I can only hope that it has not happened yet.

The Religious Reich is on the Rise...and it is scary.


It's really quite freaky to me, the notion that people can refuse anything on the basis of differing moral code, especially if it's not their money held up in the process.

Maybe soon a gas station worker will be able to refuse to sell a customer cigarettes if they don't approve of the habit.
