Praise The Lawyers!



Seventy-four percent of the lawyers at least:

Members of the Law Society of British Columbia have voted 74 per cent in favour of reversing the society's earlier approval to recognize graduates of Trinity Western University's School of Law...

Which led to an interesting response form the school's spokesthingy:

..."The university is disappointed with this vote”, said Trinity Western University spokesman Guy Saffold. “Trinity Western believes in diversity and the rights of all Canadians to their personal beliefs and values. A person’s ability to study and practise the law should not be restricted by their faith."...

Why interesting?

Well, personally, I don't see how institutional discrimination and enforced bigotry facilitates anything that even remotely approximates diversity, rights, personal beliefs and/or the removal of restrictions on faith.

Quite the opposite actually.

Liked that! And that is why Trinity University nor any university like it ought to have a law school. I don't even think they ought to have an education facility.

the philosophy of Trinity is not part of the "new" Canada. The one, that has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Canada which says its just fine to be GAY and MARRIED and have KIDS.

Thankfully the lawyers of the Law Society got their act together.

So those idiots don't think you should have sex if you're not married or not married to a person of the opposite sex. You'd think we were in Iran, with the Taliban or some such thing.

holy crap, no sex if you're not married. Leave a lot of people not having sex. Now that would be entertaining.......Can you see see the late night talk shows on that one......
