It’s a bit of a snoot-full when the Catholic church says it is too moral to allow assisted-dying in its medical institutions. Its morals are too exulted to shame itself with such an immoral practice.
Explain that to the thousands of men who were sexually abused while involved with the church. This is an organization that turned its head when sexual predators were on the lose in its worldwide organization.
Meanwhile one wonders sometimes if Canada is a secular state. In our national anthem for example Canadians sing “God keep our land …” Doesn’t sound secular does it?
Now Catholic health institutions want to be exempted from upcoming national assisted-dying legislation. That is flying in the face of the law. No organization or person is above the law. To make exemptions is to denigrate the rule of law, the foundation of our civilization.
Perhaps it is time Canadians think seriously about getting religious organizations out of health and education.
Some religious groups appear to believe they are above the law. They are not.
