What Would Jesus Do?

American's conservative Christians have the constitutional right to discriminate against any person or persons they so choose within the confines of their church; however, their bigotry should remain in the dark environs where it is nurtured and cherished. 

When conservative Christians decide to pursue a  career in public service as pharmacists, doctors, food servers, or laundromat attendants, you are required to provide your service to everyone with a valid need. If you are unable, due to religious sensitivities, to provide such service - find a different fucking job! Your freedom to practice your brand of religious intolerance ended at the door of your church. Carrying your logic to its extreme, our great democracy would devolve into a nation of pathetic scolds in constant fear of all things new or different. 

"He wore steel-rimmed GI spectacles on a weak and homely face, and he was a man who belonged to the small places of the earth—to little towns with their innocence, their bigotry and their devilish gossip…" John Cheever, The Wapshot Chronicle
