Within short order, a legal complaint was lodged with the government’s Human Rights Tribunal in Ontario, where McGregor demanded that Mahrouk give her a haircut.
The Toronto Sun‘s Ezra Levant wrote, “In the past, human rights commissions have been a great ally to gay activists, since traditionally, these activists have complained against Christians. And white Christians are the one ethnic identity group that human rights commissions don’t value, and that multiculturalism doesn’t include.
In recent years, Canadian human rights commissions have weighed a complaint about a women’s-only health club that refused a pre-operative transsexual male who wanted to change in the locker rooms.
They’ve ordered bed and breakfasts owned by Christian families to take in gay couples. They’ve censored pastors and priests who have criticized same-sex marriage. Gays win, because it’s a test of who is most outraged and offended.”
One might expect that in the case of the Muslim barber, the homosexual activists had met their match — if the test is who can be the most offended or most politically correct.
Read how the issue was actually resolved months after the complaint was filed.
This sensible editorial, “In the great Toronto haircut debate, common sense should prevail,” ran in the Toronto Star. In Arizona, the state’s newspaper of record relentlessly used its editorial and reporting contrivance bully pulpit to promote bias against the faith-based.
