Canadian Court Ruling Discriminates Against Christian Law Students
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
A ruling in Ontario regarding a Christian Law School’s graduates not being permitted to sit for the bar exam in Canada is a chilling reminder of what may come to America.
Mat Staver: Matt, this is a decision of the Ontario Divisional Court to uphold the rejection of Trinity Western University’s proposed Law School because of its Christian code of conduct that holds that any human sexuality outside marriage between a man and a woman in marriage is not permitted, that it is not biblical.
And as a result of that particular policy, the accrediting bodies throughout the nation of Canada have said that they cannot sit for the bar in those jurisdictions. And now this has been upheld by the Ontario Divisional Court.
This is a startling situation.
Matt Barber: Very troubling indeed, and Guy Saffold is the Special Assistant to TWU’s — that’s Trinity Western University’s President. He said, “It points out that the future may be much more difficult, the terms of the consideration our pluralistic society is willing to pay to our freedom to practice our religious beliefs.”
That’s a nice way of saying that multiculturalism and leftism is trampling religious freedom and it’s not just here in the United States, but it’s in Canada and Great Britain and elsewhere.
And Mat, we’re about 5, 6 years behind Canada in terms of the anti-Christian persecution facing, but it may speed up.
