Christian University in Canada in Court over its Moral Convictions regarding Marriage

The law societies of Ontario and British Columbia voted not to admit lawyers trained at Trinity Western University to its ranks because the university has a code of conduct that favors marriage between one man and one woman.

The CTV article reads, "At the core of the dispute is Trinity Western's "community covenant" or code of conduct, which the Evangelical Christian institution requires all students to agree to. It includes requiring students to abstain from gossip, obscene language, prejudice, harassment, lying, cheating, stealing, pornography, drunkenness and sexual intimacy "that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman."

The university notes, however, that it does not ban admission to gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender students or faculty, and said its community offers "an environment in which sexual minorities are supported, loved and respected."

Read it all.
