HHHH* Update: Rights commission should stay off altar

Calgary Herald Editorial

Canadians have seen what happens when human rights tribunals wade into the waters of the Charter. They saw it with the debacles involving rulings about free-speech issues in the last few years; they should not even be given the opportunity to see what the results are when a tribunal presumes to rule on religious issues. Churches must be free to follow the tenets of their beliefs without undue outside interference. And a squabble over an altar server position is something that should be resolved by the parties sitting down to talk to each other and work something out, not by a quasi-judicial body that has no business there.
