Hope it is contagious like some consider LGBT cooties

Today the following from ABC News:
"The California Supreme Court today ruled unanimously that doctors cannot cite their religious beliefs as grounds to deny gay and lesbian patients medical care."

Christianity that promotes exclusion of anyone inspires unhelpful behavior from people who have no sense of responsibility. Christians need to read the Gospels for themselves, not rely on a preacher to interpret for them. What part of love God, love your neighbor as yourself, leave judgment to God, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, etc. do the exclusionists not understand? Where did Jesus mention the sin of two people loving each other and pledging life long loyalty?

The California Supreme Court is defying the prejudice and money of the religious anti-LGBTs and upholding constitutional law. If only Pennsylvania and the Feds would do likewise!

I hadn't heard about this. Those doctors ought to have their license to practice revoke. This is just as unethical as segregated medicine in the Jim Crow days. Good for the CA supreme court.
