Diversity is good for you

Except when it results in a lethal post-op infection.  But it’s not as if surgeons and nurses really need to wash their hands or anything before poking around in your body, right?  More lunacy out of Ukistan:

The UK Department of Health recently announced that it would loosen hygiene rules for Muslim doctors and nurses. From now on, Muslim female staff will not need to wash their hands before procedures as it compromises their modesty. Instead, they will have the admittedly less sanitary option of wearing disposable plastic over-sleeves.

Acknowledging the danger of microbes and death, a Department of Health spokesman said, “The guidance is intended to . . . balance infection control measures with cultural beliefs.” But, believe it or not, from a culturist perspective, the death of some patients is not the main cause for concern that this policy elicits.

The most dangerous problem is that this policy encodes multiculturalism not culturism. Whereas culturism acknowledges that England has a majority culture to protect and promote, this multiculturalist policy implicitly says that England has no core culture. It says that the nation can be whatever pressure groups decide it is. It, therefore, officially ends the dominance of English culture in England.

I suppose we can be grateful that the devotees of the Diversity Gospel are not arguing for the embrace of a culture that is morally opposed to showers, toilet paper, and indoor plumbing.  Yet.

At this rate, John Piper’s killer god won’t even need to send out his tornadoes of doom anymore.
