Brickbat: The Rule of Law


David Izquierdo /

The Canadian Supreme Court has ruled that the law societies of British Columbia and Ontario have a constitutional right to withhold accreditation from a Christian university's law school if the school requires students and faculty abide by traditional Christian beliefs. The two law societies denied Trinity Western University law school accreditation because of its community covenant which, among other things, requires abstinence from sex outside marriage between a man and a woman. The court says that requirement discriminates against LGBT people.
