Okay, doesn't matter which side one sits on, this is a very well presented article from someone who was on the inside:
Too long to post the whole thing, but a few snips -
There has been much recent public debate about whether provincial law societies should recognize proposed law degrees issued by Trinity Western University, a private evangelical institution in Langley.
The issue revolves around what I see as TWUs clearly discriminatory community covenant, which students and faculty must sign, forbidding them to engage in sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman. Trinity argues that refusal to recognize their degree infringes on their right of religious freedom, while others say law societies should defend the rights and freedoms of gays and lesbians, and even unmarried heterosexual couples.
Trinity has argued that its position is the traditional Christian view, and seems to suggest everyone there shares it; they all sign the covenant, dont they?
The covenant presumes sexual intimacy and commitment between anyone other than a married man and woman are aberrant, unbiblical, and sinful. The prohibition is based on an extremely narrow interpretation of scripture, and mostly on a few statements in letters written by Paul. The covenant speaks of the Christian or biblical viewpoint as if there is only one and they have it right. Jesus himself, as far as I can see, delivered no prohibitions against gays and lesbians.
The covenant is not just about belief: its about control. If it were about beliefs, Trinity could simply state, We invite you to respect our community values. But the Trinity covenant goes further in its effort to exclude, control, and discriminate against others. Theres a core distinction between holding beliefs and attempting to control peoples personal lives, particularly their private and intimate sexual lives.
In arguing they are the ones being discriminated against on the basis of religion, Trinitys administration is engaged in a classic form of psychological projection. Discriminate against others; then accuse others of discriminating against you.
A 19-year old student who discovered he was gay during his time at Trinity summoned the confidence to come out during a presentation in his sex and gender class. One classmate challenged: I read the King James Version [of the Bible]. Its hard for me to see how homosexuality is the right choice. How do you expect to get into heaven? Though other students supported the gay student, its hard to believe this atmosphere of intolerance doesnt lead to psychological harm, especially at a crucial developmental stage in their lives.
When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity.
When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.
