But to do that would be playing right into the bishop's hands. If religion were even further protected under existing human rights statutes as are many illnesses (like under the Canadian Human Rights Act) then that would give people like the the Bish even more ammunition for their beliefs to be protected and put on a higher pedestal.

No, the solution is to vigorously counter such idiocy with reason.
