Save the Date for Babsy's "Accommodation" Fest

Oh, great. The Ontario Human Rights Commission will be hosting a workshop next spring devoted, in part, to the thorny matter of our "Duty to accommodate religion belief and practice."

Donning my Nostradamus cap, I predict the legal wizzes and "human rights" types will conclude that mosqueterias and other similar accommodations should definitely be, er, accommodated. (My favorite line in the communique: "How have ‘non-traditional’ religions been approached in the law, e.g. Wicca, Satanism, spiritually infused cultural practices, self-professed belief systems?" Prophet's hat on once again, I predict they'll conclude they haven't been approached well/properly/in keeping with Canada's sacred "rights" charter. After all, "Satanists" have rights, too.)

Update: Found on the OHRC Twitter feed--a tweet with a link to a "human rights" film festival sponsored by kooky, Zion-loathing Amnesty International.
