    I meant no!

    that goes against their creed!

    they arent supposed to deny treatment based on anything if already a patient.

    The Michigan House has passed a bill prohibiting religious discrimination against college students studying counseling, social work and psychology.
    The bill was prompted by the case of Julea Ward, who was kicked out of a counseling program at Eastern Michigan University because she refused to counsel a gay student about a relationship. She said doing so conflicted with her Christian religious beliefs. She instead referred the student to another counselor.

    From Ann Arbor Paper (at very bottom of Huffpo article it gave the vote count in green, I clicked there and took me to the newspaper) - Apparently this bill is not against gays (since no one was denied any counseling at all) but does insure that there is no religious discrimination as was clearly shown.
