Freedoms Under Trial

I’m back in Ottawa and I ran into a lawyer who is arguing the court case for Trinity Western University, whether or not they are allowed to have their own law school or, whether they’ll be banned because they have a covenant of marriage for their students that unless students are married to each other in a heterosexual marriage, they are not permitted to attend. Some people think these are grounds for them to be denied their own educational rights there. Very important for freedom of religion that this (law school) go ahead, very important for freedom of association that this go ahead, because what will happen if the Supreme Court rules against Trinity Western University is that Freedom of Association and Freedom of Religion will be dictated by whatever is the politically correct thought of the day. So it is a major freedom of speech issue all tied up in one. So, for those of you who haven’t followed it, Google up the TWU court case, Trinity Western University, and take a look and write your Member of Parliament and tell them that they need to stand up for freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of association.

“As the BC Court of Appeal stated when it decided in favour of the law school, ‘a society that does not admit of and accommodate differences cannot be a free and democratic society,’” stated Bob Kuhn, president of Trinity Western University.
