What are “human rights?” Libya must be the expert, since they’ve just been elected to head the UN rights watchdog committee. One pointer for the rest of us, who aren’t experts, is that they mean an end to the freedom of religious institutions to run their own affairs. For example, across the Atlantic they mean that church bodies have to employ atheists and Catholic schools can’t penalize pregnant pupils or interview pupils and parents to determine religious commitment.
Strictly speaking, the interviews are forbidden as a matter of general fairness rather than human rights in particular—they might be used to select pupils on grounds such as intellectual ability and parental support. Still, the two concerns tend to merge. After all, if Catholic schools could choose students for being smart, they might get the idea they can follow their own standards and next thing you know they might start firing Satanists. And that would constitute direct denial of a basic principle of modern government, the practical abolition of religion as a limitation on the supremacy of the state.
