Last evening, while on Broadside with Jim Braude, I told Jim that Scott Brown was trying to prevent Nuns like the Sisters of Charity that taught me from performing medical procedures contrary to their religious beliefs. Today Martha Coakley told WBSM Radio Host Ken Pittman that those nuns should not work in an Emergency Room. The audio can be found here. This exchange starts at 9:34 into the audio.
Ken Pittman: Right, if you are a Catholic, and believe what the Pope teaches that any form of birth control is a sin. ah you don’t want to do that.
Martha Coakley: No we have a seperation of church and state Ken, lets be clear.
Ken Pittman: In the emergency room you still have your religious freedom.
Martha Coakley: (…stammering) The law says that people are allowed to have that. You can have religious freedom but you probably shouldn’t work in the emergency room.
There you have it folks. You should be denied a job because of your religious beliefs, because of laws dictated by the state. This is what Martha Coakley believes.
