It's just much easier to shit on folks we don't agree with

You have got to admit this is fantastically rich coming from you, no?

Should TWU be allowed Canadian taxpayer monies while operating under rules of their faith and not of common law? If so, would you be upset if $2.6 million was earmarked for a college built under the direction Scientologists?

do you realize they're a private institution and don't receive public funding to run their education programs?

But wait there's more.

Ah..so questioning and discussing one aspect of a religion and/or school is shitting on them? Shall we next prevent students of mixed race attending as well?

Would you like some Stout or Belgian Ale to wash that crow down?

Funding is not the issue here,but the acceptance of a law school by the law society is. Now,on the other hand,should the law society disbar lawyers who are Muslim or of any faith at all,lest their thoughts cloud their judgement?

The law society has no business in qualifying education or where it comes from. Law firms and clients do though.

For what it's worth…if they were to disallow muslim,sikh etc lawyers,that would be wasis.

…and I only shit on people when they're being stupid.

Correct. Funding isn't the immediate issue. The non-stupid would welcome open discussion on the ramifications of allowing 'religious values' as a determinant towards education. The question of government monies is one of many potential issues.

In regards to your next question, I sheepishly admit to holding the minority and controversial viewpoint that law societies shouldn't disbar Muslim lawyers.

Next up, your statement that a provincial Law Society has no business in qualifying education is see below.

this makes no sense. why am i "eating crow" for pointing out they're a private institution? that only adds to my side of the debate and refutes your's.

grants and research aren't the same thing as directly funding student costs a la public institutions. i was well aware of the infrastructure and research grants when i made that post.

Actually they do. And if I recall correctly you have to pass the Bar exam to get in which does in fact qualifies one's education. So great example…when we bought our house while I could talk to my dad about legal stuff some what. I still needed to consult a lawyer who was a member of Law Society of Upper Canada.

Now let's add in a wrinkle to this … some provinces like Quebec specifically will actually demand you to rewrite your bar exam for that province. That though has more to do with the fact that Quebec provincial law follows a different system then the rest of Canada.

Law firms just employ you.

it is egregious for law societies to sanction the twu law program. their approach is more discriminatory than the supposed discrimination they are working against. there is absolutely nothing in the twu program that would suggest discriminatory behaviour against gay persons as the law societies would suggest. their thinking is surprisingly closed minded and seemingly ill-informed.
