TWU Lawschool decision

 

Some great news today.  Once again CDN Supreme Court has to protect CDN rights and freedoms. 

 

Canada is a great country. 

 

Societies governing the legal profession have the right to deny accreditation to a proposed law school at a Christian university in B.C., the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled.

In a pair of keenly anticipated decisions Friday, the high court said law societies in Ontario and British Columbia were entitled to ensure equal access to the bar, support diversity and prevent harm to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer students.

That would be the case of the century for sure, imagine what else could come out in a case like that. It would rock Canada to its core

Shame on   BC  Advanced Ed.   – Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador – though for having granted accreditation.

 

At least we have a CS court to protect us from our own provincial governments...  similar to like when the BC Liberals attacked special needs kids education in BC for 12 years.... until CS Court ruled against the Liberals...   Sad but at least we have the CS Court to protect us.

Shame on BC?  I thought BC and Ontario were the two law societies that refused accreditation?

they did do everyone a service. When you allow discrimination based on stated religious beliefs it opens up a bottomless pit of problems. Today evangelicals don't want LGBTQ people in their law school, tomorrow someone won't pick you up in a cab, or in a dental office, etc. etc. Its repulsive. Thank god for the SCoC.

And who cares. Let capitalism take its corse. All those companies would be doing is turning away business. Which in itself is a terrible business plan. I personally say let private business have the right to serve who ever they want.

That last part is a narrow way of viewing the issue and shame on you for painting all evangelical Christians in the same brush. The school is a Christian school. As such, they follow the teachings of Christ who said, "‘Have you not read that he who made them from the beginning made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one’?" They're following what they believe their founder said about sex and marriage. Where did Jesus ever say to stop providing service because of someone's sexuality? If anything, Jesus promotes loving one's so-called enemies, "But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous." I know of many Christians who believe homosexuality is a sin because they believe this is what Jesus said and yet, they do not discriminate giving of themselves, their time and money to others despite the fact that the other persons are gay. The question is: if you know the other person is evangelical, how would you act?
