Very Strange, and Very Bad

It seems that Scotland finds nothing troubling about requiring Roman Catholic schools to hire, not simply non-Catholics, but unbelievers to teach in Roman Catholic schools. What? Forget intrusion of Church into State, this is the worst kind of intrusion of State into Church. Neither is good; this is worse.

Of course it’s discrimination! We discriminate all the time. I wonder if Scotland would require an school run by atheists to hire a Roman Catholic? Or how about a homosexual school to hire someone who believes homosexuality is an abomination? Or a flat-earth society to hire someone who believes the earth is round? The absurdities are endless…

Can’t believe I didn’t think of it (my wife did), but even more apropos would be the idea of forcing a Muslim or Jewish school to hire a Christian to teach. I’d like to see that happen in any European country!

  1. Speaking of absurdities, do we now need an official “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy to protect from discrimination based on the “religious-orientation” of teachers?
