IT IS NOT IN THE BIBLE!!!

Now, I will be the first to raise their hand to admit they know very little about what really lies within the covers of the holy bible. I will never lie and pretend that I understand it, or that I've studied it.

So once again the topic of religion and prop 8 falls into work. I just brush it off because I'm still peeved, but I quietly slip in the fact that if one more person quotes their bible to condemn me I will smack them in the face with my personal bible, Biochemistry by Voet and Voet.

The next thing I hear is IT IS NOT IN THE BIBLE!!! THE BIBLE SAYS NOTHING ABOUT CONDEMNING GAYS. I AM FROM ENGLAND AND I STUDIED RELIGION, TRUST ME I KNOW THE BIBLE.

The yelling continues for another few minutes and I sit and giggle to myself for a bit that she was really furious about the use of the bible to hate on gay people. Patients are staring, I have no idea what to say, so we all just sit and listen as our pharmacist raves on about how silly all of this is.

I love the people I work with, they love me, and now I feel bad for letting them down. Boo.

Haha, I usually try and avoid confrontation. Mostly because my patients are insane.

Thanks =)
