Handy guide to 'diversity' under Bush

Judeo-Christian = Faith-based Initiative (good)

Other Religion/No Religion = Ideological Extremism (bad)

i'm still in shock over this

This is a great post and link; I'm still having a difficult time processing that pharmacists are begining to do this - and without any consequences. It's just disgusting.

Unfortunately it's true

Misogynists have feelings, too.

Gaaah!!! Target sucks!

It doesn't have to be *what's next*---it's what is!! Target needs a major boycott and then we'll see who they sell to. I'm spreading this news where ever I go.

Next thing you know...

I'll bet the next thing will be Scientologists refusing to fill Prozac for suicidal patients and directing them over to the Flintstones Chewables.

I'm all for punishing these reckless people, but I don't think that there is a big enough threat from a progressive boycott to catch Target's attention. I think that Naral or the ACLU needs to set up a legal fund to start allowing women, and the men too, affected by these wacko pharamacists. (I know I would be pissed enough to sue if someone pulled this shit with my GF) The only way to stop companies from just brushing this stuff under the rug is to have a swift reaction that rapidly reaches their bottom line.

You have to sue the wacko and his employer at the same time so the nxt time the employeer will frown on this action and the wacko will have to choose between his pastor's talk of what the invisible ghost in the clouds wants or whether he wants his house or not.

what aboot?

letter campaigns to Issac Mizrahi (sp? can't be bothered to look it up), Cynthia Rowley and all the other people that design for Target? I mean some of these people must be liberals.

Limited efectiveness, I think my solution is better.

Going after the bottom line would get faster results than going after the designers. I would reccomend sueing. If I was Naral or some other pro-choice group, I would offer "bounties" for people willing to go after these lunies.

no bounties!!

That smacks of violence, whether it's intended or not. The anti-choice nuts do that re: doctors who provide abortions. I couldn't stomach the idea.

I meant bounties as the ACLU

I meant bounties as the ACLU offers them, offer free legal repersentation if you take on injustice X. Like how they made a standing offer to take on Creationism only laws, that was taken by a man named John Scopes.
