    It used to be that Christians thought lending was Bad, so they let the Jewish people do that job. (Then, of course, they blamed the Jews for any number of imagined sins when things didn't go well...)

    The Amish don't work with things that involve motor or electrical power, or (usually) get involved in politics - those are all against their beliefs. They don't try to get into car manufacturing jobs and then advocate for laws exempting them from doing any job that uses electricity.

    Jewish people don't sign up for jobs at non-Kosher meat packing facilities, and they don't push for laws ensuring that any meat packing facility that hires a Jewish person must create a Kosher work environment for them.

    So why is it that some Christians feel they're being forced to do something that's against their beliefs when they knew going in to the job that they'd be faced with needing to perform those actions? Is it simple arrogance?

      are special.  they have more rights than the rest of us.  they are better and chosen by the invisible sky god and his zombie son.  if you tried to start a religion today with this bullshit as gospel, you'd have a hard time not being laughed out of the public arena.  guys rising from the dead are zombies.  they eat brains.  that explains why their followers are so stupid, their brains have been eaten.  guys jumping straight up into heaven, and they mamas too, (and one took his horse) are the stories we hear around the camp fire and they end with, "and the dead hand was found in the door handle of the car..."  what do these things have to do with women's health rights?
