Gunter: Meet The Pompous Human Rights Twits

[National Post] The OHRC’s conclusion, though couched as mere friendly advice, states barefaced that “doctors, as providers of services that are not religious in nature, must essentially ‘check their personal views at the door’ in providing medical care.”

The gall of such a statement is stunning. Abortion? Contraception? Fertility counselling for same-sex couples? How are those not services that are “religious in nature”? Every one of the world’s major religions has had views on these actions for hundreds of years.

They could only be considered non-religious in nature if you were a detached, disconnected, pompous human rights twit who was convinced you had the power to provide written-in-stone, immutable definitions that were binding on all concerned.
