 Fundies hate business

Some christian taliban pharmacists across the country are refusing to fill prescriptions for birth control and morning-after pills, saying that dispensing the medications violates their personal moral or religious beliefs.

GMU Economics Professor Russ Roberts explains why privacy in commerce is useful:
In America at least, our culture would be offended by an owner who only traded with people he approved of morally, politically and religiously. Privacy is respected by both buyers and sellers. The only disclosure requirement is the color of your money (or the validity of your credit card) and the quality of the product that is received in return.

That culture that respects privacy helps produce the extended order of human cooperation that sustains our well-being.
