  •  I got that same response today (4.00)
    Riled me up, too.

    Here's what I wrote back:

    ***
    Does this mean that:

    --A cashier (on religious grounds) can refuse to ring up a condom purchase if she believes that sex is sinful without procreative intent?

    --A Target eatery worker (on religious grounds) can refuse to sell someone a hot dog if he believes eating meat is sinful?

    --A pharmacist (perhaps a Christian scientist) can refuse to dispense any medications AT ALL because she believes medicine interferes with God's will?

    Where does it stop? Your position makes no sense whatsoever. You are opening a can of worms that will allow religious beliefs to dictate what can and cannot be sold. At the very least, you will frustrate and perhaps embarrass your customers, some of whom might be in dire straits (i.e. a rape victim needing emergency contraception).

    Change your position, or I will not return to Target, a store I have come to love. There are alternatives.

    You cannot allow the radical Christian Right to dictate MY shopping experience. I will not have it.
