Religion falling second to other rights in courts: theology professor | Holy Post | National Post

Religion falling second to other rights in courts: theology professor | Holy Post | National Post

  1. The only example he gave were government employees not having the right to refuse to serve gay couples. Are there any other issues except for this one? For instant did any Catholic refuse to go to Iraq because the Catholic Church condemned the war, did any Catholic refuse to pay taxes in a country that has capital punishment or did any Catholic refused to engage in union bashing because of the Church's support of workers to unionize. Is it only the gays where people assert their religious rights?

  2. Rationalist: I posted this article because I think that there is some merit in its central premise, not because I think the example given is necessarily correct. I agree with you that the example given in the article hardly can be called religious persecution. If someone works for the State then they are obliged to fulfill the requirements of the job. If they cannot in good conscience do so, then they should find another job. This clearly applies in the case of the civil registration of same-sex marriages.
