Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Another Consequence of the Conscience Clause

According to a commenter at Dark Christianity (commenting on the Conscience Clause that ensures that the cliche that “abortion is between a woman and her doctor” actually means something):

I wonder what would happen if a Pagan, agnostic, or atheist doctor refused to offer artificial insemination to a Christian couple on the grounds that they don't feel it's right to help put a child into a psychologically hostile, cult-like Christian household.

It sound cruel, but I'd really like to see this law backfire on the wingnuts.

I will defend such a doctor, even if he or she applies such reasoning to Jews.

By the way, where did the commenters on that thread get the idea that opposition to abortion was limited to Dominionist Christians?

Stereotyping. Were I to comment over there without making it clear that I'm an atheist, they'd probably accuse me of being a snake-handling fundamentalist.

Liberals tend to be (note: I said "tend") very prejudiced and narrow-minded. They're quite willing to advocate for freedom of conscience unless you happen to disagree with them on one of their sacred cows, at which point you become a religiously-blinkered Neanderthal whose opinion is just an excuse to oppress somebody.

It would be amusing if they didn't have so much influence.
