Topic: Should There Be A Right To Discriminate?
Replies: 593

I imagine it does depend on the state, but there's a significant proportion of hospitals in the US owned by the Church that refuses services such as abortions and contraception. Which they are, of course, perfectly entitled to do since they are a private company offering services. And when that pri...

Because doctors are paid by the hospital to work, they can be fired if the hospital deems them useless, such things like being a racist. I also believe Drs enter into a contract with local and state law detailing on when or why a Dr. can refuse treatment in certain circumstances. I imagine it does ...

so if business can do that why can't a doctor? Why do they have less rights than a shop owner? You claim its regarding life but why should they have to treat people they dont want to? It is a widely accepted practice that when you open a business you serve all. There are exceptions yes. But race, r...

There was that thing with the chemical weapons. People got murdered. Pretty big deal, surprised you didn't hear about it. Well, technically the person who died did so because she sprayed the bottle on herself, I believe. So it was manslaughter, not murder. Manslaughter is without malice aforethough...

Define 'liberal'. Are you using the actual definition (used by the rest of the world), or the American one (which is incorrect and very simplified)? What about non-American liberals? Why should they support an amendment to the American constitution when it doesn't concern them? I agree. Non America...

That assumes that the leader in question followed those principles in the first place. If a muslim leader fears the people, they will do what the people want, even if that is contrary to the holy books. If a muslim leader does not fear the people, then they can do whatever they want, even if it con...

Is no less imperfect than the average Muslim. Well, to be a leader in Islam, one should be Siddiq (true), Amanah (trustworthy), Tabligh (informing?), and Fatonah (wise). Don't even get me started on standards for each of the above principle. So no, a Muslim leader is better than the average Muslim ...

This may shock you, but just because the holy books say to do or not do something doesn't mean that the average Muslim will follow that rule. It happens with Christians and, despite how much you don't want to believe it, it happens with Muslims too. Well yea,I swear all the fuckin' time. But I'm no...

1. It will. Islamic theocracy are like all others. Ruled by religious leaders who are biased to their own religions and eventually more intolerant ones will do things to restrict religious tolerance and religious freedom. 2. Not really. These laws will intersect and just create confusion for everyo...

Alternatively, you could absolutely book it to the nearest safe area. The OP says you're already cornered. If they corner you, handing over your wallet is the least riskiest thing you could do.

You suggested that sending her to an impoverished country she's never been to with low living standards and high anti-refugee sentiment would be good.

I'm having some under-performance issues with Jinx despite the Crit Buffs. For some reason I deal out way more damage when playing Jhin or Ashe (and they are not optimised for damage).
