    And I hope a teacher gets similar legal standing by risking his/her job by refusing to comply.

      For using your religious beliefs to refuse to do something.

      Apparently it's ok for some places to propose a bill that says you don't have to do anything for anybody, even if it's your job, if it offends your religious beliefs.

      I'm sure there's got to be a Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, or Mormon somewhere who would have a problem reciting prayers that are not of their religion, and doing it while in a position of authority.

      So I sure hope Alabama passes both of those stupid laws, and has dueling court cases for years, costing lots of money and hopefully shining a really bright light on this idiocy.
