Once again, you people never seem to amaze me.
I swear I'll have non-political stuff tomorrow.

"For a year, Julee Lacey stopped in a CVS pharmacy near her home in a Fort Worth suburb to get refills of her birth-control pills. Then one day last March, the pharmacist refused to fill Lacey's prescription because she did not believe in birth control."

Druggists refuse to give out pill
Wow! Amazing!

Amazing that you can be that big of a bigot and not able to see it. I know this story is just from Texas, but I know it's happening all over the country. How much further can they go? They just seem to keep amazing me with how bad they want things to be.

How can you stand to let your children learn this type of prejudice and hate in school? Will we teach the Bell Curve in schools next (it's a flawed research about how certain races are just more intelligent than others)? How about those suggested readings from Focus on the Family? How about if we teach kids that only African-Americans can be good at sports because they're more physically suited? I like to hear you tell your kids that. No? Well, don't tell them this crap either.

A quote from the article:

Terri Leo, a Republican board member from Spring, also asked publishers to include language in the books' teacher editions saying that gays and lesbians "are more prone to self-destructive behaviors like depression, illegal drug use and suicide."
"Neutrality — the word 'partners' — when you use neutrality, the very purpose of using that language is to be inclusive of homosexuality," Leo said.

The entire article found here:

Sure there were parents who were outraged over this, but their voice won't have that much weight compare to those who makes the decision. Those who makes the decision also controls the money. And sadly, the world revolves around money. Money is the ultimate control (whether it be for good or bad).

It is unfortunate, but the book publishers will more than likely bow to these insane demands for the fear of losing a multi-million dollar book deal. Because if they don't, someone else will (yay capitalism!). And you know, even if we don't agree, we've gotta make those numbers so we can get a nice big bonus.

Screw those terrorists. They can't hold a candle to Texas Republicans when it comes to hate.

I know I said I was gonna stop for a bit, but I can't. I have a problem.
