A government should not weigh in on morality issues. Trinity Western University is a private, religious college located in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Due to their Christian beliefs, they have a longstanding policy that each student should sign a covenant that prohibits sexual activities outside of a marriage between one man and one woman. The law societies of Ontario and British Columbia filed lawsuits against the evangelical university, complaining that the school was discriminating against the LGBTQ community. The Canadian Supreme Court ruled in favor of the law societies, saying the required written agreement was biased.
Government Should Stay Out
This case is not about discrimination. It is about using the Supreme Court as a leveraging tool against a private religious organization that encourages moral decisions. Furthermore, the law societies do not care about the treatment of rational behavior. Their lawsuit is supposed to change the tradition of a Bible believing institution and suppress the God-given right to freedom of religion.
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms disagreed with the ruling. The organization believes in protecting Canadians’ right to freedom of religion.
The law societies also stated the new proposed law school would not be able to obtain accreditation, which would give them clout. The university was founded in 1962. Now, the left has forced their way into a religious institution via the government. Instead of being genuinely accepting and tolerant of all people like they claim to be, they attack those who believe in fundamental Christian values of morality.
There are eighteen law schools in Canada. No one has the right to attend any school. Being accepted to a university that one would like to attend is a privilege. In other words, if one doesn’t like the covenant, there are other educational institutions. The law societies are seeking to destroy a faith-based law school. Their complaint is not about LGBTQ treatment itself. Their actions are militant steps to destroy anything that is biblically sound.
This is not the first time militant LGBTQ personnel has attacked Trinity Western. In 2001, a case went before the Supreme Court stating that the British Columbia College of Teachers, which licenses public school teachers, denied accreditation for a school program, claiming the traditional marriage covenant would create biased teachers. The left-wingers had no proof for their allegations and lost.
The left tolerates most religions, except Christianity. The entire movement of radical liberalism exists to tear down organized worship of God.
The ruling of the court is not about inclusion. It is about exclusion and driving extinction. Leftist ideology is about destroying everyone that disagrees with them. The left-wing pretends to be the party of inclusion and claims to fight for the minority. In reality, they are attempting to lessen the number of Christians who publically worship Jesus Christ.
Trinity Western will make signing the paper optional, which means nothing. The government is telling Trinity Western what type of “Christianity” values they can enforce.
Fortunately, the United States has a Constitution in which freedom of religion exists. The idea of the opportunity to worship who or what one decides doesn’t exist in Canada.
Thankfully, the Founding Fathers were heavily influenced by Judeo-Christian values, and this is why America reigns supreme over Canada today.
