Christian schools Canada can revoke accreditation because of the traditional views of these institutions on sexuality — so ruled the Supreme court of this country.
The case concerns a Protestant University “Trinity Western”, which was presented the project of opening a law school. The University believes that sexual relations should be kept in marriage between one woman and one man. However, the Federation of law societies of Canada has recognized the doctrine of the University of marriage discrimination against the LGBT community, informs “Vatican News” reports the Week.
The lower courts ruled that Christian schools are eligible for accreditation and can not be denied because of their views. The Supreme court appealed the decision with ratio of 7 to 2.
Approval of the law school (Trinity Western University) – not a privilege for the evangelicals, but the state’s responsibility for the reconciliation of various religious beliefs without control over their content, wrote judge Russell Braun and Susan Cote in protest against the decision of the Supreme court.
Paul Coleman, specialist in the field of human rights and European law specifies that freedom of religion and Association is of fundamental importance not only for religiously motivated organizations, but also for the functioning of democracy as such. In this case, this basic freedom is under threat, adds the lawyer.
