As we all know by now, the Ontario’s College of Physicians is about to pass a resolution to force doctors to check their consciences at the door whenever controversial “health care” is demanded of them by the public. They are doing this, of course, to comply with the Province’s official jackboot authority, the Ontario Human Rights Commission, and whose Chief Jackboot, Barbara Hall, just finished sentencing Maclean’s magazine to “Islamophia” and “societal intolerance” while disseminating “destructive, xenophobic opinions”. All these findings, of course, were made without the serious inconveniences of even a kangaroo kourt hearing. Everything was done in abstentia.
There will be the obligatory debate about Christians not being “above the law” and how if they want the job, they must meet the “ethics” of that job. Such a fraudulent portrayal of the question, of course, will be used by the media, I have no doubt. Very little attention will be paid to the odious idea of forcing a Catholic doctor to perform an abortion or to lop off a confused teenager’s penis in order to comply with the established fictional rights pushed by the sexual dictators of our age. Without a huge groundswell of opposition and outrage and threats to leave the medical profession, we’ll lose this battle as we have lost every other battle.
But let me tell you about the battle that is to come and which will even be more ominous than the one just mentioned above. Once a professional is forced to breach his conscience in servitude to the State and its putative, arbitrary, and redefined common good, the road to forcing the regular citizenry to do the same is all but guaranteed. In other words, once a professional is forced to break his conscience in order to fulfill some perverse and twisted public policy ideal, the same rule, the same principle will be applied to force the average citizen to do the same thing. One very obvious public policy goal will be to force families to limit the size of their families. Does “One-Child Policy” ring a bell? Why would someone want to do that? For the environment, of course. After all, you can keep your religion, but just be sure it doesn’t impact your reproduction quota. The environment is something we all should be concerned about. Religion, on the other hand, is a private affair.
You see, folks, once the State or its designated professional organs is permitted to trample on an individual’s conscience and force them to act against their moral convictions on controversial moral issues, the noose is being set around our own necks. The tightening is only a matter of time.
If it comes to that, and there is a strong possibility that it might, we will be in for an incredible social upheaval in this country. It’ll be mass flight. Or mass fight.
Something has got to give.
