why? because that is the lifestyle they choose to follow and because we live in a free society that supports the idea of allowing people to choose to live the way they want to live. so while i don't support all the ideals of the university, i do support their right to choose the way they'd like to run it. in the same sense, i would support a private university that only wanted to allow non-heterosexual students into their facilities.
You can have, and be in support of any private institution of higher learning if there are enough people willing to pay to attend said institution - even if they are only offering PhD's in banjo-picking and axe grinding….the point is that once you finish your "education" at the private institution you have to come back to the fold and hope that your degree is worth something, enough to get you a job. Right now, BC Benchers are being pressured by Law Society members to reject accreditation for TWU. There is no discrimination going on - there is just a movement to say that any lawyer who graduates from the TWU law school will not be qualified to practice law in BC with their degree…making it useless in this province. The rationale for not recognizing the TWU degree is that the institution granting it encourages behaviour which is deemed to be discriminatory according to the Canadian Charter. BC law members do not want to the bench to recognize graduating lawyers who, by fault of attending TWU, embrace this discriminatory practice. There is no discrimination. TWU can continue to do whatever it wants behind its own walls, and those who want to attend can freely continue to attend - but they have to consider the value of the education that they are receiving as it is perceived by potential employers.
You can get a law degree from a mail-order caribbean based university that follows the teaching of JAH, but it aint gonna be worth rolling paper here. Same with the TWU degree….If they can find somewhere where their degree is going to get them a job, then by all means let em have it.
I'm ignoring Smedley.
