Canadian Court Protects Religious Views of Christian College

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Trinity Western University, a Christian university, saw a Canadian court rule that their religious views can be protected:

British Columbia’s highest court unanimously upheld a ruling that prevented an accrediting body from yanking the accreditation of a Christian university because it requires students to “sign a Community Covenant which does not recognize same-sex marriage.”

The Law Society of British Columbia, which accredits the province’s law schools, had initially approved Trinity Western University’s law school, but yanked the accreditation after holding a referendum on the decision among its members.
