Here’s Why the Proposed Faith-Based Canadian Law School That Would Ban Sexually-Active Gay Students Doesn’t Bother Me

Trinity Western University is a private Christian school in British Columbia and they have been trying to open up their own law school. Last Monday, the Federation of Law Societies of Canada decided to give them “preliminary approval.” They’re well on their way to becoming fully accredited.

That by itself shouldn’t be a big deal. In the United States, we’re used to Christian law schools (like Pat Robertson‘s Regent University School of Law and Jerry Falwell‘s Liberty University School of Law).

But here’s the big controversy (one that we’ve just grown accustomed to in the U.S.): Trinity Western doesn’t want to accept any gay or lesbian students who refuse to remain celibate:

Hawaiian Atheists’ Lawsuit Alleging That Some Churches Paid Unfair Rental Rates at Public Schools Dismissed by Judge

Back in March, Hawaiian atheist activist Mitch Kahle and his partner Holly Huber filed a lawsuit against a number of churches that were renting out worship space at public schools at unfair, low rates over the span of six years resulting in a loss of funds for the state of $5,600,000.

This wasn’t just some frivolous case. Farrington High School was shortchanged approximately $3,200,000 by New Hope Oahu church, money that could’ve been used to fix a roof collapse at the school.
