CHANTILLY, Va. -- A new drug store at a Virginia strip mall is putting its faith in an unconventional business plan: No candy. No sodas. And no birth control. Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy is among at least seven pharmacies across the nation that are refusing as a matter of faith to sell contraceptives of any kind, even if a person has a prescription.
Here's my favorite part:
The drug store is the seventh in the country to be certified as not prescribing birth control by Pharmacists for Life International. The anti-abortion group estimates that perhaps hundreds of other pharmacies have similar policies, though they have not been certified.
Way to let the Jihadists get away with pulling something out of their ass to score propaganda points Washingon Post. I estimate that Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy has a policy of refilling Vicodin prescriptions early no questions asked, and I have as much evidence to back it up as you cite for your "hundreds of other pharmacies have similar policies" line. All you addicts in the DC area should totally check out Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy's early Vicodin refill policy.
Actually, I take it back. This is my favorite part:
On Tuesday, the pharmacy celebrated a blessing from Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde. While Divine Mercy Care is not affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church, it is guided by church teachings on sexuality.
Thanks for the heads up. I'll be sure to leave my nephew at home should I ever decide to check out the place, lest he be bent over the way so many alter boys who were being schooled in the Roman Catholic Church's teachings on sexuality have been bent over. The sheer chutzpah. Can someone tell me why the white, wrinkly, old men who lead the Roman Catholic Church have any....ANY credibility when it comes to teaching about sexuality???
I just now Googled Bishop Paul S Loverde. What a surprise:
A local Roman Catholic priest says he is being retaliated against by his bishop for providing evidence that three priests in separate incidents stole church collections, impregnated a married parishioner and collected homosexual pornography. The Rev. James R. Haley says he was suspended by Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde after blowing the whistle on the three priests in the Diocese of Arlington.
So, if you'd like your prescription filled at a place that's been blessed by a man who evidently thinks it's OK to have his underlings knock up your wife, then Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy may be for you. If, on the other hand, you would like to stay as far away as possible from people who would put their seed into your spouse, or at least do business where you will not be judged for engaging in acts billions of years of biology have programmed you to engage in, you can come see me.
You should also see if Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy will refill your Vicodin early.
Thanks to the multiple alert readers who tipped me to the story.
