Fresh from dodging their own problems with Canadian Human Rights Commissions, Catholic Insight discusses the case of Christian Horizons, an "Evangelical Christian Ministry that provides care and residential services to...developmentally disabled individuals" , who recently got nailed by the Ontario Human Rights Commission for terminating an employee a Lesbian employee:
The OHRC’s Jewish adjudicator, Michael Gottheil, referred often in his ruling to the principle of “balancing competing rights,” but he decided that CH had no religious rights because it was not involved in just serving the interests of its Evangelical religious adherents.
What, one might well ask, does Mr. Gottheil's Jewishness have to do with his ruling? And how, one might also ask, did the staff at CI determine said Jewishness? I have been unable to locate material on the Net where Mr. Gottheil owns up to any religious/racial affiliations. Perhaps the lads at CI can just sense Semitic blood. Some people, apparently, can.
