Lawsuits are appearing based on refusal of services by religious individuals against gay marriage. Churches, shrinks, IVF docs, etc. Should they be protected from such lawsuits, because the lesbian/gay could always find another service provider, or should the religious person's definition of "moral" be ignored? Don't most states protect pharmacies who refuse to fill morning after pills? Why shouldn't other professions be protected as well? (If they're not protected, sorry, I thought they were) :-)

IMO a persons 'morals' should be ignored for the things you listed. I have to ignore mine at my job and in other situations frequently.
It is about civil rights... everyone is entitled to fair/equal rights. A person has no right, especially in the workplace to decide on what is morally right or wrong and refuse services because they disagree with a lifestyle choice.

Most certainly, Gays and lesbians intentionally find places that are against this practice and will ask for their services with the threat of a lawsuit if they refuse. I think that is bullying personally. One day in the day care I worked at, a lesbian couple came in and wanted to scope out the facility. I gave them the tour and explained the curriculum no problem, but I did tell them what we believed as far as homosexuality is concerned and children are taught that this lifestyle is unacceptable. Personally, I know it was a set up just to see how we were going to handle this situation. I knew for a fact that this couple was fully aware of our beliefs but just wanted to try intimidate us. There are gay/lesbians ministers and churches why go to places of worship where we discourage this lifestyle?
