Christian and Muslim groups raise concerns over change to pharmacists’ ‘conscience’ clause


Once again, the Christian religion thinks it has the god given right to discriminate against anyone that disagrees with their narrow minded views. This time their ‘personal values’ prevent them from doing what they are paid to do, i.e. provide goods and services to paying customers who choose to adopt alternative views to those who take their ideas from an ancient dogma that has no place in modern society. The pious hypocrites who promote a privilege seeking public nuisance need to understand that every religion is a private salvation which belongs in church, where its unproven supernatural nonsense remains unnaposed in brainwashing the gullible and scientifically challenged. David Clapham, of Christians in Pharmacy (whatever the point of that is) says the proposals may make “the position of some excellent professionals untenable and deter people of faith from entering the profession”. Well good riddance say I to those determined to shove their unwanted ideas in our faces.
