Rul­ing raises alarm bells

Toronto Star - - CANADA -

Re Trin­ity Western fight heads to top court, Nov. 5

The de­ci­sion of the B.C. Court of Ap­peal with re­spect to the pro­posed law school at Trin­ity Western Univer­sity re­veals an ex­traor­di­nar­ily warped ju­di­cial ap­proach to this is­sue. Ac­cord­ing to this ar­ti­cle, the Court of Ap­peal stated that “cre­at­ing 60 new law school seats at TWU, which brings the Cana­dian to­tal to about 2,500, would di­vert some law-school hope­fuls from pro­grams else­where, and there­fore in­crease the num­ber of seats avail­able to LGBTQ ap­pli­cants at other univer­si­ties.”

Now, re­place the term “LGBTQ” with “Jewish,” and re-read the above quo­ta­tion. If you do not hear alarm bells, then you know lit­tle of hu­man rights and noth­ing of his­tory. Steven Spencer, Pick­er­ing
