My Religion Trumps Your Health – Michigan Seeks To Legalize Discrimination Against Patients For Religious Reasons

doone, I think my state is at least as crazy as yours. The tea party is pushing legislation that benefits religions and conservatism as fast as they can. Maybe they feel that November ax heading their way.

In 2009, a student at Eastern Michigan University named Julea Ward was expelled from her graduate studies program. She was removed from the program because she refused to counsel a suicidal gay student. The reason, if you haven’t already guessed, is because she is a ‘Christian.’ To be clear:

Julea Ward, while seeking certification from a state university, refused to apply her training to a fellow student (a requirement for certification), even though his life was at stake.

Or:

Julea Ward turned away a person crying out for help, because she is an adherent to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Either way you look at it, it seems like a huge failing. And we would all agree that something needed to be done to prevent this kind of potential tragedy from ever happening again. The Michigan House of Representatives have addressed the problem…By passing a bill making it illegal to:

“discipline or discriminate against a student in a counseling, social work, or psychology program because the student refuses to counsel or serve a client as to goals, outcomes, or behaviors that conflict with a sincerely held religious belief.”

Odd, props to Jesus who would never act as terribly as those who take his name and teachings in vain.  

A must read book for Xtian's everywhere.

But what they forget is that the student can be failed and not achieve their diploma or degree because they did not satisfy all required assignments crucial to their studies!

The other thing is that I do not know about your legislature but in Australian legislature bills can be over turned and struck off the law books by the incoming government especially if it was then in  opposition when the bill was introduced and passed. They can also be made worthless by adding extra clauses to the bill that water down its impact in the eyes of the judiciary.

Too funny doone.
