Trinity Western University sees controversy over anti-sex, anti-LGBT policies
Trinity Western University in Langley, B.C. is meeting opposition from the Canadian Council of Law Deans after applying for accreditation with the Federation of Law Societies of Canada for a proposed law school. The Christian university requires students to sign a Community Covenant Agreement which calls for students to “uphold [all persons’] God-given worth from conception to death,” “reserve sexual expressions of intimacy for marriage,” and abstain from “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.”
The Canadian Council of Law Deans opposes their plan for a law school because of the contradiction between Canadian Law and the school’s policies.
